Public Mobile Text Message Numbers and types of Messages Sent.

Since joining Public Mobile I have personallly received text messages from 4 different numbers. And learned about other ones sent out from questions answered. They seem to fall into 4 categories.  I'm going to attempt to list the numbers, categories and typical messages received from them:

1. 5129 - Compliance -  Mandatory CRTC  message. 

2. 5179 - Marketing - Upsell to Koodo, Telus.

3. 100 - Reward - Monthly rewards being applied to account. (Check to see if they are correct)

4. 611 - Accounting and Backend:

  1. 3 day payment reminder and payment thankyou message (Note- If thankyou message not received, autopay has failed)  
  2. Limited minute plans 10 minute  remaining reminder message.
  3. 50/50 10 text warning  message.
  4. 75% and 95% data usage reminder messages. (Note - there may be a bug here, it includes gift data and data add-ons, when, in my opinion it should just be for the regular plan/autopay bonus data.)
  5. Credit card expiry warning notice. Sent out one month in advance.

Never seen 5179 number. The other thread has 5131 as Koodo migration offers but who knows PM always changing things.
