Phone deactivated after travelling abroad

Does any of you know how to activate a plan that was deactivated after travelling abroad? My phone asks me for four digits of a code to activate. Unfortunately,  I do not know what code it refers to.

@hectorpl 

How long was your phone deactivated for?  If more than 90 days after payment due date, your account would be permanently closed and number lost. 

 

Do you have autopay set up?  ie. credit card registered?  Looks like you are trying to load funds by dialing 611 form your phone.  That requires knowing your PIN which was chosen by yourself when you first activated your SIM card.  You should have received a text message.  

 

You can also restart your plan via your self service account.  Load up funds equivalent to your month's plan.  If you forgot your password, you can reset the self service account password.

If you forgot your PIN and unable to reset your password, you would need to contact moderator.

@hectorpl I believe the 4 digit code is your PIN # that you used when you initially set up your account.

This would have also been sent to you by PM (611) when you set the account up.  Hope this helps.

Hello @hectorpl ,

 

If you have a plan that has been in suspended status, due to non-payment, for over 90 days, then you lost your phone number and Public Mobile account.

You would lose your ability to use the SIM card again, and any rewards, or Available Funds that was in your account.

 

If this time period has been within 90 days, than simply top up your account either through Self Serve OR calling 611 (YES, Pin needed for this route. If you do not have a text from activation of your PIN, then you will need Moderators to reset it for you), then RESUME/REACTIVATE your plan.

 

Register for a Self Serve account (if your account has not been suspended for over 90 days), if you have not created one before: https://selfserve.publicmobile.ca/self-registration/

Hi Dunkman,

 

This worked as the solution: 

You can also restart your plan via your self service account.  Load up funds equivalent to your month's plan.  If you forgot your password, you can reset the self service account password.
