Why were incoming calls not going through?

I am on the 50 minute limited plan and my usage shows all minutes consumed.  I was advised earlier today that phone calls to my cell were automatically going to my voicemail.  My phone DID NOT RING when I was expecting a call at a certain time of time.  My missed calls does not show a few calls that I am advised I missed.  My usage in the past week shows numerous calls to 306-580-4001 which I understand is the voicemail number.  I HAVE NOT called that number myself.

My addons show 400 international long distance and 67/1000 Canada long distance minutes left. 

QUESTIONS:  When my monthly 50 minutes are used I assume any further minutes used will go toward one of the addons ie Canada long distance.  Correct?

Why would my phone not ring when a call came in?

Why do unanswered incoming missed calls not show in the "missed calls"?

Your phone would still ring if you have a long distance add-on (which Public Mobile allows to be used to add more minutes).  Those outgoing calls that say to a destination of "ALL" are not really outgoing calls. They do not use minutes.

 

A phone can't record calls as missed in the call log if it isn't aware that they've come in. This could mean a local network issue, or could indication an issue with your account.

@Micco ,

 

Are you an iphone user (many of these apply to androids too)? you could see these tips.

Try these quick tips to stop calls going to voicemail without ringing:

  • See if you inadvertently switched your phone to mute,, i don't thing this one applies here.
  • For iOS 13+, check Settings > Phone and toggle off Silence Unknown Callers
  • Look to see if you enabled Airplane Mode
  • If you use any apps that block spam calls, try turning these off or uninstalling them
  • Make sure your phone has service and that you don’t see a “no service” message
  • Check your blocked call list
  • Make sure call forwarding is off
  • Check if Do Not Disturb is on and if you’re driving (or a passenger) that Do Not Disturb While Driving isn’t on
  • If you have an Apple Watch, check that do not disturb is not enabled there
  • Look and see if the Phone Setting Announce Calls is set to always

I think there must have been a temporary "issue" for not receiving calls.  It appears to have rectified itself.  

I did check all my settings as others suggested but everything was OK

Maybe the do not disturbed feature on your phone has been enabled?

I've posted about this in the forums several times. This is an ongoing issue with public mobile, and I know 2 other people that constantly have this problem. Public mobile refuses to acknowledge this problem... there must be something that is fundamentally wrong with their network and that they're hiding. Please let me know if you ever get this solved... my hunch is that you won't

Yes I am having this problem as well. Phone doesn't ring but I will get a missed called. 

 

Besides that, Sometimes when I am on a call it PM drops the call.

 

Also when people call me, they get voicemail. The call doesn't go through. 

 

All was fine during the first months when I signed up with Public Mobile but now it has gone down hill. People here will say it s the phone or something. Anything but put blame on the Network.

 

Considering that Telus does not have a call centre with agents for Public Mobile so they are saving alot of money. therefore more should be invested in the Public Mobile brand in terms of fixing these issues. 

 

I will definitely leave Public Mobile if there is a similar offer from the other budget brands.

@rogue17 

 

A lot of your posts seem to suggest all the issues you're having are unique to Public Mobile, and it seems you think you wouldn't likely be having these 'issues' with other suppliers.

 

Do you really feel that way?

 

Sounds to me that may not be the case and some may be within your own control.
