For Fido existing customers only - and it's ongoing for a long time already - or [again] open for all??
It seems, new (and those with a data plan only) customers can get it too, in some re-seller places (like Constco etc.).
and the monthly data allowance is bumped up back to 3GB (from 2GB which is a "normal" now).

But I'm again in the ambush for a free lovely LG tablet that could (and should!) come together with this plan
sooner or later during this Holiday season :)

Amazon.ca is almost local! :-)

Just received this case [for my second G Pad]

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06X99 ... UTF8&psc=1

Oh boy, it's a champ - for rough handled Pad - a.k.a. my! :-)

My wife has one like this:

https://www.amazon.ca/Pad-Pasonomi%C2%A ... d+III+case

and it is very, very good too...

Edit: Don't forget tempered glass screen protector if you go w/the first option! [Not needed w/Folio cases IMHO.]

Is $140 a decent price for 3 month old? Can tablet be blacklisted just like smartphone? Any precautions I should take before buying it? I think it is locked with Fido.

Last year when Fido had the promotion, you could easily find a new one for $150 on Kijiji. Just FYI.

I am looking for one too. RFD member can pm me an offer. I am located at 401/404 area. Short distance drive is ok
I take a blacklisted one too as my tablet SIM is always with my cell.

I have the LG tablet along with the 3GB for $15/mo. plan for 24 mos.

Can i add this to my account & increase my monthly data plan from 3 to 6 GB for $30?? ($15 x 2 SIM Cards)

I asked someone on Chat & they said you need a phone plan to get it.

TIA!

But any answers/clarification would be appreciated!Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Technically yes, you can, Officially, Fido won't sell you a second 3GB/$15 flex data plan unless you're already a customer of their phone services. But read below...

Note however that if you do this you're responsible for detecting when SIM1 reaches 3GB and switching to SIM2, then back and forth. There's nothing I know of that will do that switch automatically. Fido doesn't let you pool the 6GB between the two SIMs.
I asked someone on Chat & they said you need a phone plan to get it.
They gave you the official Fido answer. Unofficially there are independent phone stores like Best Buy Mobile and others that will do this. It's a YMMV situation. Post your location in the "'[Fido] 3GB LTE Data Plan $15/mo..." thread and see if someone can steer you to a store that's known to do this.
TIA!
