Had to listen to the guy's Fido pitch, then his Chatr pitch, then he tells me he can't sell the Public Mobile sim card without activating it. At this point he's already lying to me so I don't really trust him to handle this for me. Went to London Drugs and got the sim card in 30 seconds. Should have done this first -- Walmart's cell phone stand is trash tier.
I am not sure you played your cards right. If the agent was insistent on activating the account, it was the perfect opportunity for you to ask for a free SIM card. The thread summary has the Walmart code for free SIM card. Some agents may not know about it and some may choose to apply it at their convenience.

My dad did it at Richmond hill Walmart at Hwy 7 and Bayview, we got a free SIM card there hassle free. It depends on who's on duty.

I can confirm that the Moto G6 Bought directly from Motorola Canada website works with Public Mobile.

For use in Canada, a phone essentially needs UMTS 850Mhz and 1900MHz for phone call ability. I realize that Rogers does have a 2g network, but they won't for long. And, as for VoLTE, that often doesn't work unless you buy a phone directly from a carrier. It just wouldn't make any sense for Motorola Canada's online store to sell a phone that wouldn't work at Public Mobile.

Yeah I was aware of that free SIM card possibility. Not worth dealing with a weasel.

The problem is that even if you go to a Walmart who previously gave the free SIM card, there is no guarantees that you will be offered the free SIM at the same store. It depends also on the representative who is working at that time.

Hopefully having the promo code in hand will help the odds. At least the agent can't deny so hard that such a deal doesn't exist.

Just checked the PM website and promo is still posted, as I type this.

This is YMMV. Not all Walmart locations will offer free PM SIM card.

It can be YMMV even with the same salesperson and whether that person feels it's necessary to close the sale on activation.

Unfortunately, it is well known that getting a free SIM card is a bit of a lottery. Too bad it has to be that way. We only have a few hours to mall closing time in the eastern time zone. Hopefully everyone that wants this promo can at least sign on before it expires at midnight.
