Usually Public Mobile follows the competition. So, hopefully, that would happen in the near future.
they need that and esim support.

how is lucky compared to PM? i'd switch just for those 2 reasons but i'm happy with PM.

In Canada, only Rogers network supports 2G GSM signal. PM will never support 2G. PM and Lucky support 3G and LTE, no GSM/2G.
I think yuprules is referring to 2GB of data, not cellular 2G technology

I just activated a public mobile $15 plan line 2 days ago and paid the $10+tax for the Sim card. Any chance Walmart will refund the Sim card cost if I take the receipt with me?

For the Public Mobile free SIM at Walmart, can I run in and get the SIM without activation, or do they have to activate the SIM before they can sell it to me? Trying to decide if I need to bring my wife in as well, as it'll be her new phone plan.

You need to activate in store. That is how the reps get the commission.

You can still activate for your wife without her being there. PM does not check id, etc. Just need to prepay for the first month and activate SIM card. Bring it home and put in your wife's phone.

I doubt it, but you could try. Sim card are generally nonrefundable.

What are $13 and $23 plans? I saw $15 and $25 ones on public mobile website. Planning port my nieces' numbers from speak out to public mobile.

So I just came back from WM, gave them a Ref Code, got my SIM 25$/30day plan activated and paid with Visa. Then went home. Created an online account. Web portal says $2 autopay reward.
But nothing about the $10 being referred. Where should I look at to see if referral was entered.
Also the 2nd month free promo (this weekend only) not shown, but that's okay, the promo says credited in 7days.
However, do I have to email Public Mobile (2nd month promo) for it or is it automatic ?
Likewise, how do I make sure that WM didn't forget about my being referred when sign up.
Thanks my friends.

It takes time for the credit to show, for me it took like a week.

By credit you meant $10 Referral credit or the promo ? I just don't know why the webportal doesn't say something about the being referred credit in the payment history, only "Refer a friend" link.

Can you activate in-store and choose manual payment and not pay for the plan for the time being or do you have to pay for the plan when activating the sim card? Thanks guys!
