I do understand that Fido's data plan will work for sms validation. But most people want to use the number they give out for phone calls to be their WhatsApp number. WhatsApp might work via phone call validation to a Fongo number (not 100% sure), but from experience, Telegram will not.danieltoronto wrote: ↑Jul 7th, 2017 6:50 amHuh...Why do you bother with using Fongo for SMS verification?
You can use the Fido $15 for it. You do that once at 25 cents. Big deal. .
Another catch you have to be careful. People call your whatsapp # expecting that you are using that cell #. Afterwards, use the silence ring tone for the Fido data line because you do not want the phone to ring causing you money to answer. But you will see that there is missed call and you can call back accordingly
I guess if you need cellular voice for sms validation and calls, then a dual sim with Petro Canada or 711 prepaid might do the trick.
