Re: Basic question - define "International Texting"

Was showing up for AB but PM pulled it off for now. I guess we have to stay tuned for an announcement.

Re: Basic question - define "International Texting"

@srlawrenI understand, thanks!  

 

Yep, for the time being we'll just have the one PM account and will add my wifes phone account with this same email.

 

If I end up going with PM when we get our kiddo her phone, I will then use a seperate email address to make new community & self-serve accounts for that.

 

And thanks for the clarification on that plan... I actually thought I had seen that plan on the plans previously... and then went back and looked and didn't see it.  Kinda thought I was losing it.

I picked up a PM sim today, will be hopefully switching over my wifes phone tonight or tomorrow.

 

Thanks everyone for your help!

 

I can't comment on PM as a phone service, but I give two enthusiastic thumbs up to the community.

Yes Public includes Canada in the International TXT bundles

 

Not sure who other provider was, but in my experiance it is only the very old plans where international TXT would charge extra for sending to a Canadian / USA phone number (incoming TXT are always free with any TXT plan)

Re: Basic question - define "International Texting"

Just wanted to update, switching my wifes phone over to PM went smoothly.  Everything seems to be working great.

 

I'll give it a couple days and then will port her old number over.

 

I do that under the "change number" option in the account settings, correct?

Re: Basic question - define "International Texting"

I need to call and text to Cuba. The Add option on the self serve portal only states U.S as a long distance Add on. Is there an option to text internationally?

Public Mobile can TEXT anywhere while in Canada. It has kinda limited international calling while in Canada. 19 countries.

Re: Basic question - define "International Texting"
