@kakie 

is outgoing calls working?

I had some situations that outgoing works but not incoming.  Reboot does not help.  I have to take the SIM out for a minutes, put it back in, power back up before incoming works again 

 

Make sure if she see Public Mobile showing up on top of the phone or any chance is there any kind of SIM error showing.

 

Which province she is in?

Try turning off the phone and then restart it.  Also try dialing 1 + area code.

Since all plans allow ALL inbound calls free.

Just to clarify.....wont take calls.....the phone will not accept inbound calls?? 

Or cannot make an outbound call?

Or no calls at all?

 

As suggested can the phone take inbound/outbound texts?

 

If on $15 plan with no minutes....not sure if this works but can you call an 800#. Try CRA they probably don't answer quickly. 😀

 

Can you check her account online? Minutes used up...what is status of account? 

If an outbound issue and minutes used up...buy the $5 two step add-on. That gets you 500 minutes that don't expire till used up. The add on minutes only kick in for use once your 100 minutes are used up "if" on the $15 plan.
