Is it better to sign up, and than "transfer" phone number over if I'm happy with the service?

The second month free for Public is back for today and tomorrow
Sorry, but it isn't. I wish it were as new customers would be able to take advantage, but Public Mobile has not said anything about any promotion for this weekend.

For Public, Lucky, or Chatr?

All will let your transfer a number in later, although some may require you to contact customer service to complete the task.

At least for Public Mobile, it could prove important take a new number first and then port in later. This is because at Public Mobile, there is sometimes a system bug that surfaces that causes a phone number to be ported into a Public Mobile account that didn't get activated properly. It's rare, but the idea of porting in later is to avoid this one specific system bug.

I'm a current Fido customer wanting to get a plan that Fido only offers to Chatr customers that port over. If I activate a Chatr sim card, then wait the 30 days to get the promo offer, will I be able to apply it to my current Fido account and also keep my existing Fido phone number?

You have to port the Fido number to Chatr and then back to Fido

Thanks, that's what I was hoping to avoid. $35 activation fee each time I port.

There's no fee for porting to Chatr.
There might be an activation fee when you move back to Fido though, depending on if they're crediting the activation fee at the time

Please share specifics. If it's a repeat of last weekend's Public Mobile sale, that wasn't specific to Walmart or any other retailer. Thanks for providing us with any information that you have.

Public mobile also offers $60 voucher with free sim at some Flea markets and ethnic grocery stores. I have personally bought some sims from Dr. Flea market in Etobicoke, ON.

People will have to call their local flea market to check if a public booth is present.

It would be nice if those who see these offers post about it. There seems to be very little information about this type of deal. Certainly nothing is every posted in the Public Mobile site. There is only official promos that everyone has access to.

I got a text yesterday on my old Lucky line ($15 plan - been active for more than 5 months), but I was in the middle of upgrading to to the new iOS and didn't save it and now it's deleted...

The migration offer was from Bell.

$25 talk/text plan and you get a $0 Samsung phone I can't remember the model - I believe A20 or something.

Anyone else got a similar text?
