After a whole afternoon’s trying, I still can not make or receive calls

My earlier plan was unlimited province-wide talk, unlimited international text and 1.5GB data for 90 days payment cycle, it worked well.

 

roughly 2 months ago, I found the unlimited Canada-wide talk is same priced, so I switched my plan’s talk to unlimited Canada-wide, and chose to have my new plan for new cycle, which started from Feb. 27th.

 

but from Feb . 27th, my outgoing call and incoming call were not working anymore, when I make a phone call, it kept saying I cannot complete my call because I don’t have a long distance add-on, and for all incoming calls they went to voicemail directly.

 

my text and data works normally at the same time.

 

for the whole afternoon I was working with a moderator on this, tried all methods like suspend my account then resume, reset my network on my cell, and of course turned on and off my cell hundreds of times.

 

but still, I can’t make or receive calls, and I found there is a 200 mins US-Canada long distance add-on in my account and my account balance $8 became $0. This add-on wasn’t made by myself and I don’t know what happened.

 

even with that 200 mins long distance add-on I still cannot make or receive phone calls.

 

i do need a good explanation for that happened to my talk plan and who made the add-on purchase without my personal authorization.

 

now I decided to talk about this issue in public instead of back and forth in my private message box. Maybe someone else can help me solving this problem more efficiently. 

 

This is is my primary number for all contacts, it is very important for my daily life.

I can't make phone calls

Hi I am new user of Public Mobile.

 

After first 90 days, I switched my plan from provice-wide to Canada-wide, and ever since then I can't make any phone calls. It kept saying I didn't purchase any long-distance add-on.

 

But I am already unlimited Canada-wide talk, how comes there's long-distance service needed?

 

Attached is my plan details screen-shot.

 

I am living in Ontario.

 

I need some urgent assistance, thank you!Public Mobile Plans.png

@lilian_liang,  I would try the lost/stolen phone trick.  Where you log in to your self serve and report your phone lost, this will deactivate your sim and wait about 5 minutes and log back in and report it found, this will reactivate your sim and hopefully give it the kick it needs.  Or you can send a private message to the moderators.

Re: I can't make phone calls

Sometimes when you changed your plan @lilian_liang @you need to do the lost/stolen trick ... try to go in your self serve account and in the tab plan/add-ons and click on lost/stolen your phone. Close your phone few minutes and open it again. Click on find your phone and see if something change.

Re: I can't make phone calls

Oh, that's interesting. I'll try NOW. Thanks Shawn.

Re: I can't make phone calls

@lilian_liang, ensure you're dialling the phone number correctly.  try removing non-number characters from your contact(s) information, as sometimes this causes a misdial.

Re: I can't make phone calls

@stonechucker @ShawnC13 Hi I deactivated my account and after 15 minutes I got back on but the problem is the same. I still cannot make a phone call.

 

I shut down my phone, took out my SIM card, but still the same.
