International Talk Add-on Doesn't Work

I purchased "300 International Minutes for $15 " which by its name meant international talk minutes. Later i came to know it has selected countries and i can not call USA.

Now i want to remove this Add on and get a US talk time add on and i can not do it.

I have to submit a ticket and wait and then get 1000 Minutes to the U.S. for $15  hoping it will allow me to call US.

There is no help which can be provided urgently and no feature to remove unused add-ons.

If you don't mind waiting for a moderator you can explain your honest mistake and they will nicely (they don't have to but they will) remove the $15/300 min add on and replace it with the $15/ US 1000 min add on. Or if you can't wait the hour or two it might take for the moderators to reply then you could purchase the add on you need and they will credit your account the $15 for the mistakenly purchased one.

 @muhammadsaqib : There's nothing stopping you from paying for and getting the US add-on and then dealing with the removal/credit of the other one.

Did you call any of the limited countries? Or even...would you call any of them? Because the minutes can also just stay on your account for when you wish to call any of those countries.

If i buy another add on this will not be refunded no refunds for pre-purchased plans or add-ons are applicable. I did not call any and neither intend to call any of those countries. There should be an option to delete / remove an addon "not used".

Agreed. But there isn't. Alas. The mods will make it right.

Indeed there are no refunds but the moderators are very good about removing/adding the add on you need or giving credits back to your account that can be used for other purchases or paying for your plan at renewal. The moderators at public mobile are very, very forgiving.....as we are when pm screws up!

Totally agree with you, @muhammadsaqib 

 

It was very wise of you not to consume any of the International Minutes add-on.   It is a good point that International long distance should explicitly state (DOES NOT INCLUDE THE USA).

 

Your request to swap the International with the US Long Distance will undoubtedly be able to be accommodated.   You did the right thing to contact Moderators.

 @HALIMACS : In the miles of fine print above the blue Purchase Add-ons box, the list of countries is mentioned.
