Received a message from Public Mobile letting me know that I have used up 95 of my US data and now I am not receiving any more text. I am back in Canada.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi @Nancy1968, Did the problem start immediately when you got back to Canada? Is calling, sending text & data working? Also, when was your (10 day?) roaming plan set to expire. It's possible that when it does, it clears up the texting issue.
A few other things to check, if you haven't done so already... Power cycle your phone. Check the network settings, just to make sure you are properly connected to PM.
Asside from that, your next course of action would be to send a private message to the moderators team. Be sure to include your account number and PIN, as well as an explanation of your situation. Note that they will only be back online at 9:00AM (EST).
Lastly, and for future reference, you should always start a new topic for a new issue. When you put your message at the end of an existing topic, there is a good chance that it will go unnotice, and you will not get the support you need.
Good morning @Nancy1968,
thank you for taking the time to share your concern regarding your US roaming add-on!
I'm really sorry to hear that you've been impacted by the us roaming expiry. Basically, once the add-on expires, you aren't able to receive any text messages. This is a known issue, however it usually self-resolves itself after a few hours. If you're still facing service issues, rest assured that we'll help - just send us a private message
This is not a solution to the problem. It merely explains that client has to senselessly wait several hrs before the paid for service is working again.
