Re: Queations on 100M Canada wide talk, unlimited incoming calls. Intl talk time & data add-on p

I never travel to the US so it never occurred to me how those add-ons work but good to know for other people. Thanks

@Punya 

Unofficial tip: outgoing calls to toll-free numbers (1-800 etc) do not consume minutes.

 

The $5/500 minute add-on is a great value for the $15 plan.

WOW!

This is all I needed to know to handle my $15 plan. Thank you so much for your hard work.

Have a good day

ps: If I don't keep up with my addson, how much cost me the minutes when I go over the 100 minutes?

@Sophie3 It won't cost you a penny. If you run out of minutes and have no add on minutes, your service will simply stop working until either the next renewal or until you purchase an add on.

Suggested add-ons for $15 monthly plan.

 

Suggested add-ons to bullet proof the $15 plan. Both my wife and I are low users of our $15 mobile plans but the one time cost of $25 makes our plans as good as any. And of course, once set up, one will have to manage these add-ons to keep the “GOOD COMBINATION” in place and maintenance cost should be minimal.

 

The add-on combinations below do NOT expire until minutes are used up.

 

GOOD COMBINATION. More flexibility, less overall cost.

2 x $5 add-on (1 cent/min.) 500 Canada-wide Long Distance minutes

1 x $15 add-on (3.75 cent/min.) 400 International Long Distance minutes add-on this gives you full calling LD including USA, Canada and International for less cost per minute than using the $8 add-on. 

=======

$25

 

NOT SO GOOD COMBINATION.

2 x $5 add-on (1 cent/min.) 500 Canada-wide Long Distance minutes

1 x $8 add-on (4 cent/min.) 200 U.S. & Canada Long Distance minutes**

1 x $15 (3.75 cent/min.) 400 International Long Distance minutes add-on.

=======

$33 Total                   **The lesser value of the group

 

 Note the $5, $8, and $15 add-on would all kick in for Local/Canada Wide calls if your allotted minutes were all used up. This applies to the $15 monthly plan only.

 

The reason for 2 x $5 add-ons, assuming most of your calls are Canada Wide, is......once 1 x $5 is used up and you are now using the second $5 add-on ......buy another $5 add-on.

 

The $15 add-on is less cost per minute than the $8 add-on. The $15 add-on has INTERNATIONAL, USA and Canada  so, in a way, the $8 add-on is pointless to buy for USA only calls.

 

Note 1: The add ons above I have mentioned do NOT expire until all the minutes have been used. The unused minutes roll over month to month until all exhausted.

 

In certain conditions DATA can be very helpful and now the add on 1GB Data that does not expire until used up, has been permanently reduced to $15 (originally $30)

 

If you have the option to call 2 different numbers choose the 800 number, those 800 number calls do NOT deduct from your allotted outbound minutes.

 

Note 2: Rewards programs and freebies.

 

Keep in mind the value of “Rewards that’ll lower your bill”.

Freebies that may be offered as in pre Christmas 2019 for 1GB of Data and 400 International Long Distance minutes. And August 2020 some of us were offered 5GB if add on Data while others were offered 1GB of add on Data AND 1000 minutes of Canada wide calling. They treat us very well.

 

Note 3: Other ways to save money.

 

Use Wi-Fi  Zoom, FaceTime Video or Audio only, iMessage or a phone APP.

 

Use Wi-Fi based APP for outbound calls “if” it will allow you to use your PM number as the caller ID. Google Hangouts apparently does. Cost is free.

 

Zoiper used with VoIP.ms works too over Wifi but does cost your “outbound” VoIP.ms price per minute. And you can set up the caller ID as either your VoIP or PM number.

 

Forward your home or business calls to you PM phone number.

Stop Stop Stop the bravos!!!! LOL.  I like them but my post is now invalid as PM has new add-ons. My post in future will now read. 

 

 

Suggested add-ons for $15 monthly plan. 

 

Suggested add-ons to bullet proof the $15 plan. Both my wife and I are slowly growing mobile phone users of our $15 mobile plans and the one time cost of $10 makes our plans as good as any. And of course, once set up, one will have to manage these add-ons to keep the “GOOD COMBINATION” in place and maintenance cost should be minimal. 

 

The add-on combinations below do NOT expire until minutes are used up. 

 

GOOD COMBINATION. More flexibility, less overall cost.

2 x $5 add-on (1 cent/min.) 500 Canada-wide Long Distance minutes

=======

$10

 

There is no longer a “NOT SO GOOD COMBINATION” !!!!

 

Note the $5 add-on would kick in for Local/Canada Wide calls if your allotted minutes were all used up. This applies to the $15 monthly plan only.

 

The reason for 2 x $5 add-ons, assuming most of your calls are Canada Wide, is......once 1 x $5 is used up and you are now using the second $5 add-on ......buy another $5 add-on. 

 

So now is the time to select the “BEST FOR YOU” Long Distance Plan(s). It will be nice to able to contact friends and family in so may countries at a very reasonable cost. 

And keep in mind you must be in Canada to use these plans. Just look and the cost per minute calculations…..I DON’T KNOW WHY I EVEN HAVE A LAND LINE ANY MORE!!!

 

And some fantastic long distance add on packages. 

 

All inbound calls from Canada or any country to you while you are located in Canada are free. 

 

Calls must originate in Canada 

Any unused minutes will roll over to your next cycle.

 

500 Canada Wide Long Distance Minutes $5 or 1 cents/min. 

 

1000 U.S. Long Distance Minutes $15 or 1.5 cents/min. 

 

1000 U.K. Long Distance Minutes $15 or 1.5 cents/min. 

 

750 India & Pakistan Long Distance Minutes $15 or 2 cents/min. 

 

500 China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan Long Distance Minutes $15 or 3 cents/min. 

 

100 Philippines Long Distance Minutes $15 or 15 cents/min. 

 

300 International Long Distance Minutes $15 or 5 cents/min. 

Included countries: Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France,Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Venezuela

 

Calls made to numbers starting with the following six digit combinations are not included in US calling from Canada and will not be completed when dialled: 712-432, 605-562, 641-552, 605-475, 605-477, 712-775, 559-726. Calls made to numbers starting with the following UK codes are not included in UK calling from Canada and will not be completed when dialled: 4470, 44870-44879, 44843-44845.

 

From what I have found, there are extra charges to dial these area codes and a number of Telcos either don’t allow calls to them or add hefty surcharges. Public Mobile has elected to not allow calls to these area codes listed. 

 

Note 1: The add ons above I have mentioned do NOT expire until all the minutes have been used. The unused minutes roll over month to month until all exhausted. 

 

In certain conditions DATA can be very helpful and now the add on 1GB Data that does not expire until used up, has been permanently reduced to $15 (originally $30) 

 

If you have the option to call an 800 number over a local number or LD number, choose the 800 number, those 800 number calls do NOT deduct from your allotted outbound minutes.
