Just to expand a little here... porting telephone numbers is more of a "pull" process from the new carrier, which is why @computergeek541 pointed you to the new carrier responsible for taking care of this.  The porting process involves several different things to happen so it can get complicated at times.

 

You can try reaching out to a Moderator to ask if there's anything wrong with your account, but otherwise would be the new carrier who should handle this for you.

 

I'm curious - what's pulling you away from Public Mobile?  🙂

Is your public mobile account active?  Except for Telus and Koodo ports, you will need an active account to port to a different company.

Are you trying to do it now? I'm not sure who your new provider is but generally you request your new provider to port your number into your new account. Their customer service contacts their porting department who contacts public mobile with the request. Public mobile sends you the porting authorization text and you reply YES to it within 90 minutes and public mobile releases the phone number.

 

However this is done during normal waking hours so there isn't a high number of no responses to the porting authorization texts and that porting isn't delayed due little or no staff working in the middle of night. You will get a better result by waiting for your new provider's customer service department's opening hours to start and there are employees available to handle your request. Same goes on pm's end.
