Would PM, Kood be considered Subsidiary carriers, or MVNO?
Also, what would a Mobile Network Operator be? Saw how Telus Mobility was labeled as a MNO, So really intrigued.

Koodo, PM & Telus Mobility are owned by Telus Communication Corp.

Chatr, Fido & Rogers Wireless are owned by Rogers Communications.

Bell Mobility, Solo Mobile & Virgin Mobile are owned by BCE Inc.

Oh? Ok.
So, Telus Mobility, Kood Mobile, Public Mobile are Subsidiaries of Telus Communications, Not MVNO?

Many computer stores are now starting to sell unlocked phones. I purchased an unlocked ASUS Zenfone 2 from Memory Express and it works fine with PM.

Yes, the canadian ASUS Zenfone 2 is sold for the canadian market.

 

You can use it with any carrier in Canada.

makkahn28,

Though about 2.5 months after the fact, your May 3rd post was left unanswered.

Public Mobile, like our sister company, Koodo, is a subsidiary of Telus. FYI, its legal name is Public Mobile Holdings Inc.

An MVNO is essentially an independent reseller of the services provided by Telus, Bell and Rogers.

Re: Where can I buy a phone to use with Public Mobile?

Hey nothing more to tell that's a great answer!!

For me i am new user and I keep my rogers iphone 5 after 2 years of 82$ per month...

The only thing is that i have to call rogers to unlock my rogers iphone ... It costs 50$
After that my phone work pretty well with the public sim card

So if you don't have an old phone you can look at kijiji ... For some good used one and pay less

Hello again,

If you were paying $82 monthly, the amount that you are now paying must have come as a very pleasant shock!

Welcome to Public Mobile!

Moto X (2nd gen) is available for $399 at Staples which is a pretty good deal
