25$ talk and text

On the 25$ talk and text plan.  It says unlimited talk CANADA. That’s clear.  The text is unlimited international.  Does that mean text in Canada is not included?

@Braziller  It means that you can send and receive texts anywhere in the world including Canada while you are in Canada.

The only catch... when you send someone an international text, they'll receive it, but they won't be able to text back unless they also have international texting. That's why a lot of people use a program like WhatsApp, WeChat, etc... then it doesn't matter.

 

But as @Braziller already answered, yes you can text to Canadian numbers.

In this plan, if you are in Canada, you can send unlimited text messages to any country, including Canada. (Be careful while traveling, roaming fees would apply).

@kkhalil94  Incorrect, Public  Mobile does not charge any roaming or any other type of fees of any kind. Public is strictly a prepaid service.

For free programs/apps to text/communicate, I use Signal Private Messenger - it's more secure and uses less data than then wechat and whatapp, wechat is owed by China comapany and whatapp owned by facebook,  and clearly China and facebook cannot be trusted to respect peoples rights/privacy.

@geopublic this is sligtly incorrect/misleading. PM does not have service outside of Canada and USA. Your phone simply will not work. Thus there can't be any charges.

 

If you want service sending sms and calling or data  you have to  buy one of the USA roaming addons..

I know you want to help out but please don't post stuff that is not True.   What Roaming fees apply? 

 

In case you didn't know Public is a Pay Before Prepaid Service, Which means if something is not part of your Plan or an add on you have purchased it simply just doesn't work. There are no Pay per use charges, overage charges, data charges, Roaming Charges or any kind of charges with Public Mobile. None whatsoever.

International means the world, this includes Canada. Text away whether in Canada or Italy!

Customers cannot use Public Mobile services while in Italy.
