I rarely use minutes monthly and only may be 40 texts. think it is better for me to buy data add on instead of switch from $10 plan to this one.

Since ports from Freedom are kind of a crapshoot, is it better for me to refer my inlaws into a new number first, and then port over manually after account is activated and working? Does the $1 off per month stick that way?
Yes, it does stick. Referral goes by account number, not phone number.

Yes, absolutely activate the Public Mobile SIM/number first. Make sure everything works for them with the temporary number. Then a few days later, port in the number from the other carrier. The referral credits still apply.

Really depends on how much data you will use. 1 GB for $30 data add on is expensive, even though unused portion rolls over. If the 1GB data add on last more than 6 months, then keep your $10 plan. If not, might need to consider this $15 plan.

excellent, i can switch my son to this....i was looking for unlimited text type of addon on top of 10dollar plan. This plan covers that aspect as well as extra 50 min plus some data to play with. (though its very low but cant ask much for 15 dollars :) )

chatr looks better, but not enough motivation to switch ( i refill 200 min add on once in few months)

Good stuff. Bravo, PM!

BTW, is this limited time, or permanent plan?
I might need something like it late summer, wonder if it will still be there...
The deal may be temporary, however, once you sign up for it, it is grandfathered subject to the terms of service. You know that long list of fine print that nobody cares to read but must check off as accepting when we activate.

Agreed, the unlimited text is the feature a lot of people were looking for, since there was no text add-on. This will get a lot of interest from people on the other prepaid carriers. With loyalty and other credits, this can easily be had for around $10/month.

OK, thanks! So what is the deadline for this promo, if you happen to know? I'm trying to optimize different scenarios to have this late summer at minimal price...

Late summer?!? Geeesh.

Alright, so it looks like you're probably not a current Public Mobile customer, so activate a line for the $10 plan to get the $25 referral, with autopay. That will get the plan cost down to $8/month. In the meantime, schedule a plan change to this special offer plan to occur on your next renewal date. Each month, before your renewal date AND before the plan is changed, cancel the plan change so your $10 plan is renewed. After your $10 plan renews for another 30 days, schedule the plan change. Do that until late summer OR the special plan is no longer offered. As long as you schedule the plan change while the offer is available, the price will be locked in.

Good luck!
