FYI, I just chatted with csr, i got the $50/month plan:

Unlimited Canada-wide minutes
5GB of data
• Mini Voicemail
• Call Display
• Unlimited text, picture and video messages from Canada to Canadian, US and International wireless numbers
• Canada-wide long distance calls
• Circle Calling
• Call Waiting
Data Top-Ups: use 90% data get text for $7/300mb, or $15/1gig (7 times allowed)

No spotify (asked)
No credit (asked)

Upgrade from $50/month 4gig royalty plan.

Basically, I am paying the same but got extra 1 gig.

Edit: I just told that I see Freedom mobile have $35/month for 5 gig of data, do they have anything similar and they offer the above one for me. I try to get credits and spotify and cheaper plan, but they won't budge. :(

I think the only reason they offered is because the freedom mobile plan got re-extended to Feb 28. So maybe everyone still has a chance to get the plan again.

yes but with extra $$$
What do you mean? Cuz $45 for a 4GB plan with Fido Roam eligibility at $5 per day is a great offer.

The only downside is that it's only valid for 2 years.

Is this the best available Fido Roam eligible offer? We'd want at least 4 GB but prefably ongoing. Right now my wife has the $50 5 GB plan without Fido Roam and I have the $54 (after discount) 6 GB plan without Fido Roam.

Hi, i currently have the grandfathered $35 plus10 +$30 6gb plan. i called in yesterday to negotiate a better plan before i even knew these forums existed) and got $5 off for 6 months. But after finding this whole new world of deals im really tempted to call back and try to get the $40/4gb expired plan because that would be perfect.

I would like like to know if a $15/3gb tablet counts as a second line? because then i could get the second line discount making it 36/4gb + 15/3g...so $51/7gb essentially. sounds like a longshot but is it possible?

Sounds like a plan. But i thought there's not way to get expired plan back? Unless you buy the plan from existing owner?

Having said that, is this plan a good deal?

$70/3GB plus 15 pulse with Fido roam.... don't mind paying the $100.

It's expired. You won't get it. And you just missed the $50 5 GB plan too. That's also now expired.

BTW, the cheapest BYOD loyalty plans generally are not eligible for the 10% second line discount, but it depends on the specific plan, and YMMV.

Was this for a new or existing Fido line?
