Ahh okay so just switched from other plans to the $25 plan. That makes sense.
I thought it was with a new activation so I was like how do I manage something like this.
That's too bad. I would get rid of my $15 3GB Fido tablet plan and just stick with the Virgin $15 plan with 2GB bonus data.

You got an amazing deal though. Do the data add ons expire?
I think on 2 accounts one of the 1gb expirees in 2024. The other 2gb bonus don't expire, or say 2100 XD

Yea basically if you have the bonus data from previous plans and keep switching u can stack like mad. Even when loyalty offers you bonus data for staying u can stack. I had one plan on the $50 10gig deal so it effectively had 18gb of data total, and since I carry 2 phones minimum on me, I was using it to tether to my other device.

An alternative to paying the data block is deleting the APN if you prefer Koodo/virgin

Does this still allow for picture messages to go through? I think that's the main thing some people want with the data block
I couldn't care less about picture messages so thanks, i'll stop paying the $2.50
Koodo, Fido, Telus, Public Mobile, Virgin customer.

Oh right MMS.

Altering the APN would stop MMS from working

Virgin and Fido still have the plan, couldnt reach Koodo after 20 min on hold waiting to speak with a representative. I went with virgin since you get 10% off on the second line.
Non of the providers I spoke with offer any kind of add-on data plan. I can live without data, especially how much I am saving.
Thanks for sharing the info about this plan.

I called Fido and they were able to honour the deal.. when inquired about adding a data plan, they have $40 for 4 Gig data + Unlimited CW calling + 1000 International minutes (for 2 years). So I settled with $25 dollar offer and the rep is unaware of $5 add-on for 2GB Data.

I forgot to mention, you can get you activation fee to be waved over the phone with Fido but virgin only in chat.
