Porting from Fido to Rogers ...

Just used this plan for a month ...

Image

Finally decided to get out of Fido ... because they don't have the phone that I want ...

Called 611 ... and then was transferred to the "Migration Department" ...

Got the Samsung Galaxy Note II for $199 + taxes ... and the plan was $65 + taxes:

- Unlimited Incoming/Outgoing minutes
- 1GB data
- Unlimited SMS/MMS
- Call Display with Name Display
- Visual Voicemail Plus

I intend on continuing to use my HTC Sensation XE and the rep said that I can just go to a Store to pickup the regular SIM card after getting the Note II ..

I'm swapping the Note II with a friend for his iPhone 5 (still sealed) ...

cool. when you say you used that plan for a month; does that mean you were in a 2 or 3 year agreement with fido? and were able to switch to rogers with no penalty?

You should have of signed a new contract, used it for a few months, then ported. My friend was was only 8 months into his 36 month contract, called up fido, spoke to the migration department, and ported over to rogers with fido ECF waived. :D

I dont get why you made such a move..

You are willing to pay $11.3 extra a month for a similar plan every month just for a note 2?
$11.3*36+$199*1.13 = $631 that you paid for the note 2 ...

Why didnt u just get one from the BST forum outright?

I wanted to with the iPhone 5 ... not exactly the phone that I wanted to get because it would cost me an arm and a leg to get it UNLOCKED ... but they weren't willing to waive the Early Hardware Upgrade Fee of $220 ...

it sucks that they waive the ecf going from fido to rogers but the best that they can do for those going from rogers to fido is the $100 max ecf
