I called earlier today, it was soooooooo long ..that rep i spoke with must have been new, it was such a pita lol

So i asked for the 45$ plan, after some research on his side, this plan is only available for customer that bring their own phone, no exception !

Also, since i am on a month to month 2 year plan and also because there's is still a balance on the phone i am currently using there is no way to get this plan..

What i have right now is basically the same 70$ smart plan they have on the website but i got it during a christmas promotion for 56$, 2gb of date and everything else unlimited.

So in the end i asked him for the 5$ credit, i told him i used to have this on my account but it ended last month.. his answer : the only thing i can do is a one time 5$ credit !!!



..lol so for me it was a BIG no no, i'm gonna call back tomorrow ..

Anyone know how much it is to go over your data? I'm on that $39 plan with 500/600 (can't remember). Would it be worthwhile to switch to this or just pay extra if I go over up to 1GB. Assuming I don't go over every month, maybe every other month?

Will I guarantee to get the 2GB if I switch to this new plan FPMMM014G?
I can't guarantee that. You are better off calling Fido and asking them about it.

Keep your current plan if you don't go over often. I am on $39 plan with 450 min/600 mb month to month. As long as you don't care about Spotify and don't make lots of voice calls, your current plan is as good.

For Manitoba customers:

I noticed that Fido dropped their $50 5GB plan down to $48 (presumably to match Koodo's price for essentially the same plan). The website structure shows the same as the $45 and $33 plans where voicemail and international text are not included, but I suspect that removing the Spotify option would bring those two features back without changing the price. I haven't called about it because I'm still on contract with Rogers until August so I can't confirm if it's possible or what the plan code would be. I have to decide if it's worth the risk to wait until then to port or if I should buy out my contract and switch before the pricing changes again.

They took me off of my three year max plan (which was essentially the same as this) and even extended my credit by a couple of months..

Didn't think I'd see the day where I'd have unlimited calling, texting, caller ID, VM, 1GB + $5/250 (not bad) for $35 a month.

I have the same $39 dollar 450min/600mb plan and was told through webchat its $5 per 200mb. Could it be different?

He quoted you the regular plan with Spotify, $2.00 add on is for international texting, $5.00 add on is for Enhanced Voice Mail, International Texting and 2500 min call forwarding. Ask them for the plan by the plan number posted.
