Freedom got so slammed by this promo that they were intentionally causing delays in releasing numbers to Fido, Koodo, Virgin.

On a side note, the promotion is STILL ONGOING. So if anyone still hasn't taken advantage of this, go get it before its gone!

Freedom to Fido, $39/9GB + $34/11GB 2nd line.
Actually, in this case, the store rep screwed up and never activated the SIM's.
Basically, 1 minutes worth of their time cost me 6 hours of mine.

Be careful and check your bills. Fido still has not applied my 1st months $11 credit, on my second bill, as per their emailed agreement.

Freedom is free as long as u r in freedom zone which is most of major city in Ontario. If Fido same case?
Is it free if u live in Toronto but visit Niagara or Hamilton or it would be considered long distance?

This plan is still on Fido's website. Are the $5/line additional line discounts confirmed? I'm cautious with all things Fido/Rogers related from past experience.

SWITCH FROM FREEDOM TODAY!

Get 9GB for $39 per month after bill credit for 24 months2. Only when switching from Freedom to Fido. Call or Visit us in store to take advantage of this offer. Available for a limited time.

I'm currently with Fido, would porting out be the only way to get these recent deals I am seeing? What's the best deal to port out from Fido to? Freedom? Koodo?
I am hoping that by porting out I get a Winback call or I am able to port back in under one of these deals.

Yes, unfortunately. They make you work for it, but it might be worth your time. Port to Shaw or Freedom as that seems to trigger the best offers.

Worst case scenario you can get the $39/month 9 GB offer to come back to Fido. Just call the number on Fido's website (‭+1 (866) 315-3436‬) before Oct 31. To be safe I'd want to have the port in/out win back all settled by the 28th so that you can call CS and finish the port before Oct 31.

If/when you talk to win back - tell them you are with Shaw if it is available in your area - even if you port to Freedom - because Winback can't tell the difference.

Say you have the 25 GB plan on Shaw, and they should match that or beat it. Seems people are getting that for $35 with a big $200-300 bill credit if you add a phone on Tab and 1000 free LD minutes per month. If you don't need a phone, it's better to pass on this to stay portable in case other great offers pop up. :)

Also, if you have any need for extra talk and text lines tell them you also have that number of $0/month Shaw text and talk plans.

And, if you think you will be staying with Fido, might as well get the $0 4GB tablet plan with free Samsung Tab A 8.4.

Can anyone from this thread update us on TMS point bonus for getting hardware on these plans? Is the $300,000 pts with an S10 still on? TMS website is pretty bad.

Thanks for the help! I'll be heading to the Freedom store this afternoon.

By the way, I'm in Ontario, would quoting the 25GB Shaw plan still work?

Good point - corrected my answer. Safer to stick to Freedom as I don’t think Shaw cable and mobile is available in ON. You need to be a cable subscriber to get the $0 plan.

I know deal is dead now but in case a similar deal comes in, is the second line you port in eligible for $34 with 11gb or is it only for the primary line?
