Public Mobile provides free SIM cards to users who are switching to Public Mobile. If you are bringing your own device to Public Mobile and worried whether or not it will work, any phone that uses a SIM card will be compatible with Public Mobile. No matter CDMA or GSM, as long as there is a SIM card slot, your phone will work. Make sure you order the right SIM card at time of purchase.
Once you’ve selected your expiry term, you will then select whether you’d like talk to be province wide, Canada wide or Canada and US wide. You will then select the same for unlimited text. The last thing you will select when creating your plan is the amount of data you’d like. Data only lasts 30 days and is required to be refilled once it runs out. All data is 4G LTE data speeds.
