You need to own an American cell # for two minutes to get a GV. That's the hard part.

But there are inexpensive ways to get one temporary with a prepaid service.

You need to create a new Gmail email address either from the US or using A VPN ansld during the email creation process it asks which country. You choose US.

Then just Google setup a GV and the Google site will first ask you to login. Use the new email. It will ask you location and area code questions and provide phone numbers to choose and finally it will ask you to verify you have a US number. You can confirm via text or automated phone call to a US cell or landline.

Then in VoIP.ms you forward all calls to your new DiD to your new GV number.

Login to Hangouts with your new email and you are done.

( You must log into your Gmail account from a PC and toggle off the settings to forward all calls from GV to your US number. That is set by default. )
Thx for the information.

Without an existing post paid wireless plan ?
Oh, should've clarified. I am a postpaid customer (last year's Boxing Day deal of $60 for 6GB with 1000mins of LD).

Well, Fido called me back and said because I'm on a 2 year contract, they can't offer the rebate. So no luck.
Darn, well thanks for trying!

for those of you using this data plan in a dual sim phone, what phone are you using? Not a lot of dual sim card unlocked phones to choose from in the $250 range.
Asus Zenfone.
I've got a pretty good friend who's seen me at my worst.
He don't care if I'm a blessing or a curse,
But he always shows up when the chips are down.
That's the kind of friend I like to be around.

So far, you haven't explained what's wrong with BLU.
Very poor hardware AND software for the money. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X blows BLU out of the water. 2x of this $15 plan gives you 6GB, with half 50% loyalty, that's $15 total for 6GB on a dual SIM phone (albeit you'll have to software cap the data and software switch the SIM).

The other end of the spectrum for dual SIM is Huawei Mate 9 or 10. Middle of the road option is ZTE Axon series or Asus Zenfone 3 or 4 series.

Or OnePlus 5 and as of next week, 5T. Flagship phones at mid-range prices.

I’m at a Fido store, they are waiving the requirement for a current plan. They are also offering a free g pad3. It is a 2 year plan but your buyout if you cancel drops each month.

Steven at BB Yonge/Eglinton is saying you have to buy tablet on 2 yr plan if your don't have an existing Fido voice plan. Anyone else able to get this without locking into 2yr plan? Which location in GTA?

Edit: couldn't sign up - they ran out of lg gpad iii tablets. Don't recommend Yonge/Eglinton

For those who got the plan over live chat, how long did you have to wait for an email about the line being added to your account? Hasn't been 24 hours yet but I'm thinking it'll take longer since it's the weekend...
