Just activated one SIM, waiting for the number to port. Don't freak out that the 4 GB plan isn't accessible from the website anymore, it can still be set up through the activation process.

Edit: Number port took about 2 hours from Rogers.

The $40 deal is done (I assume), but what happens when you go to renew your 90 day plan? If you got in on the $40 deal wouldnt you just go right back up to current prices? Looks like the same plan is around $65/month. My concern with Public Mobile is that they might drop the 90 day plans to get more customers signed up, and then raise their prices when they go to renew the plan

They've been saying they grandfather the rate but who really knows. But the parent company is Telus so I can't see them pulling anything fishy like this without any back laah.

Just paid for the next 90 days, with discounts for auto-pay and one referral and including taxes it is working out to $72.95 a month for two phones with 4 GB each. Less than half of what we were paying with Rogers. On the first 90 days out of 12 GB available I used about 8.9 GB. Coverage was never a problem but we didn't stray far out of town during that period.

All in all, very satisfied and am on the lookout for them to offer the deal again so I can get the kids on it too. I have them on Freedom and the coverage is just not as good. Plus I can save another $6-7 changing from Freedom to Public.

Yep, also hit first renewal. Very happy with PM. Other than what name shows up as my carrier on my phone, no difference in quality of service at all. Oh, and the bill is obviously a hell of a lot better.

That is a really good deal. So assuming one phone instead of two it would work out to around $36 per month? If so - I need to watch for their next deal. I was hesitant at first as I didn't know what their rates would be on renewal (after 90 days) but sounds like they're keeping it the same

I am happy so far but I ran into problems with my auto renewal. On the day of my renewal my service disconnected for a day because apparently my account was in "arrears". Thing is I had auto renewal payment that was properly set up with the right payment method and everything so I should have never ran into this situation.

I was messing around with APN settings and everything for half a day trying to figure out what was going on because I couldn't dial out or get data and it wasn't until I sat down and looked at the forum posts that I went to my account and manually clicked the payment button. Account was up again within half hour after that. It's really annoying they don't have a help line for situations like this and you have to either message a Mod on the forum or email them and wait up to 48 hours.

Went to Public mobile too, thanks to CP. The best part was cancelling my Rogers account. My experience and savings are on par with InglewoodFan.

You should have been fully aware of this going in though.

Oh I was aware, just expected there to be much less issues and a more tolerant billing system.

I'll agree the billing system needs some polishing. Luckily my first renewal went through without issue. Hope it keeps up.

Probably $38 or so for one phone, it starts at $40 and there is $2 a month off for autopay and then more for referrals (in my case I referred my wife after setting up my account)

Public Mobile currently has a deal for bonus data on most of their plans. For anyone who has signed up for one of their plans - any issues with auto renewal after 90 days? If you sign up for the 3 + 3GB data plan for 90 days, does that continually roll forward every 90 days or is that just for the first 90 days then the bonus data disappears? I'm with Koodo right now ($55 SK plan) and wouldnt mind switching but not if its a big hassle every 90 days

I've been through 3 90 day renewals now. No problems with any of them. I've remained on the same plan each time I renew.

I was a bit nervous making the switch as I did read about some people having issues with no service on their phone when porting their number. I did not have any problems like that, you just have to follow the instructions.

I'm still happy I made the switch. The only downside to PM is no service outside Canada or US. But for how often that comes up, it's well worth it.
