^ I BELIEVE, UNLESS your plan is a grand-fathered one which has no MIN ECF., if say there's 5months or less remaining in your term., you'd be paying $80/$60/$40/$20 respectively for the corresponding # of months remaining.

Can you post your plan please? (down to every penny, not counting any overages...just plan)
If it's good, you wouldn't need to pay a penny for ECF if you transfer it to someone.

say I have 18 months left in the contract, which is $35 pre-tax and I want to cancel it. Do you ppl know how much is gonna be the ECF in total? cheers
18 x 20 = 360$.

The best thing to do whould be to do a Transfer of Responsibility so someone else will take over your account.

port to rogers, get a good phone (blackberry bold for 100 dollars at the source)

sell the phone, cancel the contract.

You have to take a contract with Rogers in order for Fido to waive the ECF.
