It's like a luxury feature and only applies to fido pulse plans but you are paying a premium price for it.

Fido wants your money so they will make money off your long distance and roaming charges.

They already have an agreement with AT&T so it's not like they will have to pay extra money for it since AT&T users are using Rogers network when they are in Canada.

My friends who used the $40 4gb plan are paying a lot for those roaming packages.

4gb/$40? Damn. I'd jump on that. I'm currently on 2gb/40 byod fido.

I've been on Fido's 15gb data only plan for 6 mths... Would I be considered a current customer eligible for this plan?

So I just asked my friend, a fido manager, he said this is a "Winback Offer".
It is in their system even for new customers so if you know anyone working at Fido, you can probably ask them to give it to you.

My wife is having the same issue. She have Samsung S7 Edge. It's already been replaced but problem still persist. We were then told Fido knew of the problem and there was a software fix. We brought it in to the Samsung Store and they updated it. Worked for the first couple of weeks and then problem comes back. I'm pretty sure it's the network, not the phone.

I currently have $50, BYOD plan with 3 GB data+Roam+Spotify (Pulse plan).
When I chatted with FIDO over the weekend , they offered to match Freedom mobile plan with the 5GB for $50 plan but I will lose out on Roam and Spotify. I wouldn't miss spotify that much, but I'm not happy losing out on $5/day Roaming option.
On the fence......Anyone able to get Roam added onto this plan??

Same. In YVR. I brought it to Samsung Store in Metrotown since the manager knew of the issue. The manager was on vacation when we brought it in so one of his staff did the update. Now I don't know if the staff knew of the problem and that the software update he did is the same one his manager is talking about because the other staff we originally talked to didn't know anything about it. This was over a month ago already. We plan to bring it in and asking the manager to update it himself when we get a chance.

Is it just the Samsung & Fido combo that has an issue? I have a coworker who often complains about reception at work with Fido and her iPhone SE. I sort of thought she was exaggerating. I didn't think there would be much of a difference from Rogers (what i had last year) and Fido.
