Re: Need Help with Plan ($40 for 4.5 GB + 500 MB AutoPay Bonus)

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Hello, I just switched to Public Mobile and signed up for the $40 deal in store today. However, the person helping me said they could not find that particular promotion but it should be fine as they manually added the items to my account. After leaving the store, I reviewed my account online and 1) it does not reflect the promotion that I signed up for and 2) the data that's supposed to be part of the deal is in the add-on section? I tried to fix this myself, so I was looking in the "change my plan" section, at first I could see all the promotions but it wouldn't allow me change my plan as it said there was a balance owing -- I'm a new client but my credit card is on file so I'm not really sure how this works? I made a second attempt to fix the issue but now I can't see or select the promotional plans at all. The deal ends tonight and I just want to ensure that my current plan is reflective of the $40 promotional plan that made me switch to Public Mobile. If someone could kindly offer some guidance it would be most appreciated. Many thanks in advance!

As for your data question..all data will show under My data and you can keep track of your data...if it's blank in that section it means you used up all your data

As suggested by @Jb456 ...don't try to change your plan now. If you change it, you'll lose whatever balance you have in your plan and you'll pay again for the new plan.

Your available data will show up in Data and Add-ons as 4.5GB + 500MB''ll show how much you've used up to now. When you use it all, you'll see nothing available.

Mayor / Maire

Also never make changes if uncertain or without reading all the warnings. This is prepaid service and clicking ok can cost you without reimbursement. If in doubt please come here to confirm before making any change.

Thank you for your quick reply! 

I'm concerned because my current plan doesn't show the itemized breakdown of the promotion accurately and is missing a few perks. I've attached a couple of screenshots below. Is there anything I can do to ensure that I'm properly enrolled? 

Many thanks! 

Shouldn’t this be listed on my current plan?Shouldn’t this be listed on my current plan?

Looks as if the mobile rep(s) may have signed you up with the wrong plan. Contact a moderator and explain the issue and they should be able to make the correction. Click ?, bottom right, follow instructions to submit a ticket. Wait times are faster lately and usually within an hour or two.
