Re: PM survey very silly

I wouldn't UNSUBSCRIBE to the PM texts, though. Maybe unsubscriptions only affect one PM number or one PM category of numbers ... but maybe they unsubscribe from all PM 51xx messages, including gifts and promo offers you would actually want to receive.

 

Just take two seconds to click the spam, read it, click it again, delete it.

Only some marketing texts can be unsubscribed from. Most can't be.

Can't say I have ever got a survey. Guess they like and value you more than me. 😹

There were a few customers who didn't receive the last round of gift notifications so no way to reply "YES" to claim the gift offer and thus no gift received. At least one of them had previously unsubscribed to PM notifications. Not sure if this is related, but I'd rather play it safe on this one, not worth trading a few sporadic text annoyances against a lifetime subscription to free gifts.

Haven't seen that annoyance in ages. Also haven't been frustrated by the Simon overlay.

@Korth  I use Adblocker as well and have never seen this message. Lucky me lol.

Re: PM survey very silly

They sent me a notice advising my conversation was closed and wanted to know if I had any more problems.


In the message was a request to complete the survey...but you cannot link to the survey - nor can you copy and paste the address. 😒It has to be typed in to the search bar

Yes for sure if it's just annoyances------ but these days with so many crooks trying to scam us -  and constant reminders from our financial institutions and the media to be careful and not to click/open on online offers it's best to just ignore them.  It's sad but a sign of the times that even legitimate offers are mostly ignored by most.

True enough. But if I get a sketchy-looking 51xx SMS saying "Public Mobile here... reply to this text with your account number to claim a free gift of 10GB" then I'll first check online at this these forums. And I'll post a screenshot to ask PM whether it's legit if nobody else has already done so. Pretty easy to find out if it's legit or if it's a scam.

 

It's impulsive, impatient, greedy, and gullible folks who fall for the obvious scams. Admittedly not all scams are obvious but if it looks a little too good to be true then it's not hard to confirm that the message did indeed come directly from PM. I've checked here before when PM offered gifts which looked too good to be true, lol.

Was there a PM free gift of 10 gb? If there was such an offering of course that may require further investigation. Unfortunately there are also many "grey scams" that also target   gullible folks.-- For example a few months ago my wife was mislead by our cable company. A rep from the local national brand cable company had by telephone convinced her that she should switch to their "ultra speed" internet service from our Bell Five 500 account for a few less dollars. I of course interjected and had to call the cable company to cancel the order. Their "ultra Speed" internet service is at 40 mbps compared to our Bell Five service at 500 mbps.

Re: PM survey very silly

@Beer 

I find these surveys come in spurts with multiple requests to complete the same survey. I've recieved both text surveys to rate my customer support experience (after replying each time that I absolutely  despise Simon they stopped after about 5 or 6 of them.) The pop up survey on the website was exceptionally annoying popping up everytime i would visit the community and taking you directly to the survey after clicking to complete it later. I filled it out a few times with some wishlist requests and coincidently two requests were fufilled the next day! Then i started asking for more outrageous requests and sarcastic comments and after 10 days or so they just stopped appearing. I dont think i ever turned one down.....i think they just got sick of hearing my opinion !! Fancy that......
