I like the point made by @darlicious  with respect to purchasing the added minutes that's your primary reason for upgrading.

 

Something else you may do:  You can schedule a plan change to the $25 plan to occur on your next renewal, and in the interim if you determine you no longer need the $25 plan, just simply go into your plan change tab and remove the scheduled plan change.


I think i will schedule it, i assume that when i click on new plan in my profile it will give the option to pick the effective date?


@G6 

 

Yes, just schedule it for "Next Renewal Date"  NOT an immediate change.

 

However, given you're so close to your next renewal date (3 days i think you noted), you wouldn't lose out much by just doing an immediate plan change, so you're choice.

@Spudster Immediate change could cause a reward issue on top of forfeited plans days and moderator would need to make an adjustment.

I'm going to guess there is no WiFi calling for PM that doesn't use minutes?

Unless I'm missing the intent of the question, Wi-Fi calling does not use plan minutes.

 

EDIT:

 

The above information may be inaccurate - I don't believe Public Mobile has this availability.

 

See scripting provided by TELUS about this option which they provide for their plan holders:

 

"Calls and messages are billed the same as over cellular, and there is no additional cost to enable Wi-Fi Calling. All incoming calls and messages received over Wi-Fi Calling while in Canada, and all outgoing calls and messages sent over Wi-Fi Calling while in Canada to a Canadian number, will be deducted from your monthly voice allowance and any overage will be rated according to your wireless plan. All outgoing calls and messages sent over Wi-Fi Calling while in Canada to a non-Canadian number will be charged according to your monthly allowance including applicable overage pay-per-use rate, and long distance service will be charged according to your wireless plan. Wi-Fi Calling will not use up data from your wireless plan."

Some providers you can enable it somewhere in the settings but i don't know if PM has it enabled.

See my edit to my post from above - I believe you're correct in that PM does not offer Wi-Fi calling.

Yes. Your plan will show expired at 9pm et. It will show suspended at 12am et and you will see your plan data counter and minute  counter reset. Between midnight and 2 am your rewards will be applied and at 2 am et your payment will be taken from your balance or autopay will kick in but autopay can be delayed sometimes up to 6 hours or not at all like the system failure on Friday. 


Even with enough balance already in the account, I would say that the plan payment usually doesn't get taken at 2am ET.  I can't remember how long it's been since it has occurred for me anywhere near that time. The times that it happens are all over the place.

Public Mobile currently does not offer Wi-Fi calling, or Voice over LTE ("VoLTE")

 

Even then, Wi-Fi calling only helps if you are in a poor coverage area for cellular service - it does nothing if you are on a limited minutes plan since calls would usually still be limited to the same pool of minutes/plan limitations.
