@Dik13,

 

For new customers or to open a second account, you must join the BETA phase of Public Mobile.

 

They are temporarily accepting new customers only by invitation. You must register here : http://publicmobile.ca/en/on/beta

 

You will be contacted by email within a few weeks. Once you receive your invitation code, you will be able to subscribe on Public Mobile and order a free of charge SIM card.

 

For now, there is no faster way to subscribe on Public Mobile. They are in BETA to make sure everything works perfectly before the official launch.

 

 

If I answered your question, please accept my post as the solution.

@Dik13,

 

I really hope that you will receive your invitation code ASAP but by experience, its takes around 8 to 10 weeks.

Great. Just received my invite.

Now how do I go about setting up a new telephone number.

I'm not bringing a number with me.

Hi,

The process is very simple. Login to your self-serve account, and click Plan and Add-ons. That will bring up several subtabs, one of which is Change Phone Number. You will then have a selection of numbers from which to choose by province and city. You will be given a selection of 5 numbers from which to choose.

If you don't like any of them, come back in a few days and they will be different, or choose one and then, during the next billing cycle, you can change it again.

Welcome to Public Mobile!

BTW, changing phone numbers, which can be done only once per billing cycle, is free of charge.

Only thing I like to add is don't abuse this Privileged because Telus Group of companies are really the only companies that give you this Privilege free via self serve
