Unique referral code

Just got this text from Public Mobile:

 

Starting July 24, you will have a unique referral code that will replace sharing your phone number when referring someone to Public. Look out for an SMS with your unique code next week. Why refer? Get $1 off per month for every friend you refer for as long as they stay with us. Reply "unsubscribe" to be excluded from Public Mobile offers.

 

It's about time Smiley Happy

Re: Unique referral code

Just got it as well. Let's hope they are not very long codes that would discourage people from registering them .

 

Also what would happen in time of a typo?

It's a good idea, so your phone number isn't out there being shared by whoever gets a hold of it, without you knowing.

The same thing that happens when you used a phone number, but made a typo.  It wouldn't work.

<=10 digits would be fine. Anything more could get cumbersome.

@z10user4, took me a while to find the other thread  - thanks for notifying.

Re: New unique referral code

I've not received this notification (yet) on my daily driver. Perhaps my backup device has received it at home.

May be it'll stop employees at retail outlets entering in THIER own phone numbers, when people activate their accounts in store.  And not using the phone numbers that are given to them to enter in.  It's being done quite alot.
