I was surprised to see that there is no US/international texting add-on. I almost never text US numbers but on the occasions that I need to my only option is to change my PM plan from Canada-wide texting to international texting, thereby losing the remaining time of the old plan. I realize I can sign up for Fongo or something similar but I'd rather not.

Good suggestion.  So far there is a desire from many customers to expand the Add-ons options.

Oh yes indeed. But my Favorite would be the tastiest one of all: 

Roaming, so I can go to Roam, paint, then Home to sleep, and across the world, since it's a large playground for all of us.Please, Roam to explore from Home

Yeah, I think it would be very nice to have something along the lines of a 250 US text add-on, 5$-10$ whatever makes sense on Public's end.  ( hopefully 5$ ).


As far as roaming goes, that's a huge task that I doubt is on Public Mobile's todo list for now, like hardware subsidies. It's a reason to use Telus/Koodo instead. Ya know?

I do hope that it is on the Wish and Good list for Xmas, that would be an excellent Xmas present, and Exquisite Privilege, that We PM Guest Clients know we have earned. Spared no expense. If Public Mobile did this, that would be the bravest and bold thing they did since, um, PM was first conceived in 2008

Is this not what you're looking for?

@mikefradette, I think OP is looking for an add on, not part of their plan. So a certain amount of international text messages that don't expire.

I thnk U.S. texting would be a good add on. I only need to text someone in the states everyonce in a while so a add on would work for me.

Hey @Cookin,


Your idea is accepted and will be available in November! Check out the full scoop

here. Also, a big thank you to everyone who supported this idea.

I no longer see an option for non-global text in the plan designer either. Any plan that comes with textings seems to offer unlimited US and international texting. Does that mean this idea has been effectively implemented/obsoleted?
