FYI: I am currently a Fido talk, text & data client.
I was on the phone with a Fido CSR earlier this week and at the end I decided to ask the person if the CPO Huawei Mediapad T5 CPO deal was available since it was still on their website (see attached). I could not sign up myself (see attached).
The CSR was able to add the 4GB/mth data service and a "free" CPO Huawei Mediapad T5 10" tablet to my account at "$5.00/mth" on a 24 month contract.
This morning, my tablet arrived with the SIM card, the charger and a charging cable. I wouldn't have known that this was a CPO item were it not for the missing protective tape, missing manuals and the lack of earphones if new ones come with those. I am currently charging it and updating some software.
The hard to decipher Fido cost/math looks something like this;
(1) Tablet $324.00 x 1.13 (Ont) = $366.12
(2) $366.12/24 mth = $15.25/mth
(3) Cellular Data Service = $10.00/mth
(4) Tablet and data service credits= ($324.00/24 = $13.50) + $5 for a CPO tablet = $18.50cr/mth
Net Fido (Rogers) math = (2) + (3) - (4) = $15.25 + $10.00 - $18.50 = $6.75/mth
Maybe I'm missing something , but that's not $$5.00 x 1.13 = $5.65. Yes I maybe getting the shaft on their tax calculation.
I was also charged the $40.00 activation fee although the CSR said I would not be. I'll wait to see my first 3 bills to see if that gets credited back to me. No SIM fee.
YMMV, but you can't win if you don't try.
I only received the 16gb one. Less hot, but it will still serve my basic intentions.
