We need to just guess what is actually happening, unless you can provide us more dets.

 

Can you force your Mobile Connection to 3G when you make a call to try and improve connection?

Public Mobile uses the following frequency bands:

  • 4G LTE and LTE Advanced: 700 MHz, 850 MHz, 1900 MHz and 2100 MHz downlink and 1700 MHz uplink (AWS).
  • HSPA: 850 MHz, 1900 MHz (UMTS).

Check if your phone is compatible with Public mobile:

Check for outages in your area: https://www.telus.com/en/on/outages

or https://downdetector.ca/status/telus/map/

1.power down,

2.take out the SIM,

3.wipe it clean,

4.put it back and power it up,

Re: new customer , cannot make or receive calls.. calls keep dropping

@fkilleen   how long you have activated the account? 

 

did you try rebooting your phone once again?

 

what is the brand and model of the phone?

 

What is showing on the screen?  SIM not provisioned?  or do you see Public Mobile on top and see signal bars?

Re: new customer , cannot make or receive calls.. calls keep dropping

Additionally to the suggestions above, can you answer these questions?

 

What kind of phone do you have? What plan?

 

Where are you located? (City or town)

 

When did you set up your account?

 

In your Self Serve account view, what do you see?

 

How long do the calls last before they drop?

@fkilleen 

Try toggling airplane mode on/off. This will give you a brand new connection to the network.

check this site and you will have some idea how far the celluar towers are from you, Choose Telus and Bell as they share the towers
