Nice find! Thanks for letting us know. I'm happy that PM is offering more and more competitive plan and add-on rates! Keeping my fingers crossed for a more flexible US roaming add-on.

Nice find. Interesting that it's not in the plans area but IS in the purchase area. I looked first and thought yeah nice joke. Then went to the purchase area and there it was. I bought 1. I wonder how long it'll be there or whether it's now a permanent fixture. Now if only they could do the same with a texting add-on. Smiley Happy

I still have 200 minutes from last September...I wonder which add-on will get hit first.

Thanks

Great add-on.  Where was this back in the day when the focus was on province wide calling plans.  It's been quite a while since the switch to promos with Canada wide calling.  I hate to say bad things about deals, but this one seems a day late for sure, perhaps not a dollar short though.  Smiley Indifferent

Replying to myself...I just took a call that consumed my remaining 50 minutes and it didn't touch the 500 minutes I just bought earlier. It used the older 200 minutes. Hmm. Not sure I like that. I also restarted the phone and did a test and it took from the 200. Maybe it's setup to use the first add-on added. I guess we'll see with other reports.

Probably not happening but wouldn’t it be nice if Public Mobile let us redeem our old Long Distance addons that we purchased before this came, as people needed to exceed their included minute usage and had to use those for local calling?

 

Let us redeem them back for account credits at 100 minutes each and get $3.75/$4 back or something Smiley Happy

 

Probably won’t happen but would be an amazing move if they did and I wouldn’t ever move carriers if I know they will go the extra mile for us.  Smiley Very Happy

So are you saying, after your plan minutes are depleted this new add on won't be used first for Canada wide minutes, but instead the US/Canada minutes are getting deducted?  That would be a bit concerning.  Maybe there needs to be a tweek to this new add-on to allow for Canadian calls to be utilized first.

Great addon for the $10 plan.  About what addon it uses first, I don't see the PM system sophisticated enough to determine which is the better addon to use

That's exactly what I'm saying. So...someone needs to buy the 500 minutes, use their 50, use a couple of the 500, renew their plan, buy the 200 minutes, use their 50...see what gets hit next.

It might simply be order of purchase. Dunno.

I would be fine with it the other way around now after the fact...if I were to use up the 200 and let it start in on the 500 then buy the 200 again for US calling but call Canada and see what happens. If it kept taking from the 500 then I would be fine with that except what happens after I use up the 500. Smiley Happy
