If you do choose to pursue the possibility of gaining back your old number as described by me and other hopeful folks on this thread, please do post the result on this thread.
It would be very helpful to know how your particular set of circumstances were viewed and handled by Public Mobile staff.
Thanks and good luck!!!
But... Don’t get your hopes up too high! If it was originally a Telus/Koodo/Public Mobile number there may be a small chance. If it was ported in from elsewhere it returns to where it came from so you would likely have better luck starting an account with “them” and asking for your old number back.
If starting over with Public Mobile I think the Lunar New Year offer may have been extended ...not certain. AND if you really like Canada Wide instead of Provincial Wide calling, you need to get on it pretty quick and select the right plan.
