3 GB data bonus add on promo

I'm already a Public Mobile customer on the now grandfathered $60 8.5 gb plan with 2 gb US data a month included.

 

It is a great plan but utterly useless to me at present as I cannot travel and I am at home on Wi-Fi.

 

If I switch to the 1 GB plan with 3gb add on, can I keep my number if I use a different email address and credit card? I know I will lose my current plan but if the travel with work starts again, I can go with Fizz if Public does not offer a similar US / Canada plan again.

No @montreal501 PM doesn't allow porting between accounts. The only way to do that would be to port your number out, which closes the old account and port it back in when you activate the new account. Stay safe.

@montreal501 

The 3GB add-on promo is for new activation only.  You can activate a new account and stop paying your $60 US plan.  Your old account will be suspended without payment.  You have 90 days to change your mind to pay $60 and reactivate your $60 plan.

 

You $60 plan is in great demand.  You can sell your plan to someone to take over your account. You cannot keep your phone number because as soon as you port your number out, your $46 plan will be canceled.

@popping 

I second your suggestion

@montreal501 

Lots of people are waiting for that plan 

Who is original number provider?

If it is public mobile you can just release it and try to get it with then new account.

Your old account with a new temporary number would be even more precious with another referral.

You have 90 days (current situation is temporary and maybe you will have use for it, if you see you will not pass it on, many would be more than happy to grab the opportunity and you may be able to score couple of bucks

Cool, thanks for the info. I will port out to a lucky or chat base plan and port back in.

 

I'm really happy with the Public Mobile service but paying for something I cannot make use of just to keep the plan cannot be justified.

 

As the plan I'm on is no longer available, I will move elsewhere when the travel restrictions are lifted or hopefully, Public will allow people who had the US / Canada plan to take again given the special circumstances. I hope for the latter as the service is awesome so far.

You have 90 days to decide whether you want to reactivated again unless you want your phone number moved to your new PM account ASAP.

Keep in mind that the 3gb add on, is a one-time offer, meaning you are not getting 4 gb every month 1+3, the 3gb add on is used after you use up your 1 gb, and you have 3gb that never expire, that you use after run out 1gb of data month.

Re: 3 GB data bonus add on promo

I just signed up with Koodo yesterday but this 3 gigs seems good? So am I understanding right that once the 3 gigs are used up that's it? It doesn't renew?
