My most recent months plan started on Aug 30th, and then three days later I received a text informing me that I had used 75% of my data. I hadn’t changed anything about how I used my phone (no new apps, minimal streaming, used mostly wifi, etc) and so it’s basically impossible for me to have jumped my usage so suddenly. I rarely go over my data at the end of my plan period. I’m a week into my plan and now I’m being told that I’ve used 95% of my data. This seems incredibly inaccurate - help?
Just to confirm, your current "month" starting Aug 30 was from Public Mobile's system, correct? If you're relying on your phone for your "month" it can be off because Public Mobile renews every 30 days and not a month.
Also on your S7, you'll be able to check the data consumption for each app. I'm not sure if this helps or not, but Public Mobile's data counter is generally trusted as being accurate.
Thanks for your reply. There's definitely an issue. I haven't changed anything about my data (same apps available, same usage, no hotspot, no wifi assist, etc.) or about my activities (still going into work the same way, mostly using wifi, etc.), but somehow I used the same amount of data in under 7 days than I would in 28.
Direct message to PM is the easiest. https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/notes/composepage/note-to-user-id/22437

Here’s How To Contact Customer Support Agent by CS_Agent,
@ekhekh if you want to open ticket with the Chatbot, which PM might reply quicker, do this
at chatbot, type: Data usage not acurate
then click "I have enough data, but it's not working"
then click " still not working"
then click "android"
then click " Still not working"
then click "Click here to submit a ticket"
you will then direct to another page to open the ticket.
Have you run out of data yet? As already suggested have you :
If you don't think your data reset upon renewal you can ask for it to be reset. If the texts were not errant ones then this is possible if for example you have 1gb of plan data and regularily use around 75% - 80% of it (750 - 800mb/1024mb). After renewal without data resetting you could have been just below 75% and triggered the 75% usage text within a few days or a week even if you were mostly on WiFi. Up to another week could pass using your usual amount about 200mb that would trigger the 95% usage text.
Less likely is a sudden high usage of data within a few hours when on WiFi or not using your phone that is on the pm side caused by some kind of glitch. Reporting this quickly to pm customer support is imperative to getting your data reset and proving that this is unusual to your normal usage pattern. Usually a CSA will be aware that this glitch could affect some customers and they reset the data without question but this is not common just not impossible either.
You have been given the methods of contacting customer support. I myself prefer private message. I don't like that Simple--Simon character....lol!😎
