    Question Why cant I receive SMS on my phone

    I have the samsung flip phone with the $15 unlimited plan, I do not wish to send any SMS at this time but if someone does send an SMS to me then I would expect to receive it, as of today a number of people have said they have sent me an SMS but I have not received any, the only messages I do receive are from public-mobile, do i need to get the text packages just to receive SMS???

    Correct. Public disables SMS unless you have the unlimited texting add-on, either as an add on feature or if its part of the plan you subscribe to (except texts sent from the company, such as reminders to make a payment).

    The $15 plan only allows unlimited province-wide calling and nothing more, so everything else is turned off. If you want SMS, you can switch to the $24 plan.

    It actually mentions this right on their website:
    http://publicmobile.ca/pmconsumer/su...74h4d&pageURL=

    As part of their FAQ
    "Answer: No. You can only send and receive text messages if you subscribe to unlimited text messaging."

    @ cscait60 Yes, you will need to add the text package to receive/send text msg.
    If you are on the $15 plan you are better off switching to their $24 plan which includes Unlimited int texts,caller ID and unlimited province wide calling.
