Is there a way to enable SMS? I can not even register Fido XTRA because can't receive SMS. I thought it's my account problem.

BTW, I just know Fido XTRA is Data Only plans excluded.
Fido XTRA has been included in my data accounts. However I have voice accounts on my plan so I can access it via other means. We cant even ask for SMS if we wanted too. Its 100% blocked. No way around it

Unless they've changed it recently, data-only plans are eligible.

I don't recall needing SMS to register for the program. It just worked for me (using the Fido mobile app.)

When you are on the screen that says to enter a fido number to get the SMS, there are some links (I can't remember exactly what the links say) that refer to having trouble signing in, or already have an account, or whatever, try all the links, one of them will take you to login using email and password (same like from a computer browser). If the app goes crazy when you try to login like this, you need to force close it, and go and clean its data and cache (or just uninstall and reinstall). It will work when the app is "clean".

The plans rate changes based on how many GBs you've used. Your plan costs $15 for the first 3GB (or 4GB on the new plans), if you go over by less than 1 GB it is $25, if you go over by less than 2GB it is $35. While it is weird that you have 5.32GB with $25, since that is either 3GB over the 3GB plan, or 2GB over the 4GB plan, so it should be the $35 plan, not the $25. But, since you've got the 100% off, it doesn't really matter.

Wondering if anyone was able to get the 4gb plan on a Esim in an iPhone? Probably a dumb question but figured I would ask anyways.

I tried right after I got the plan, agent said after 3 months, after 3 month agent said 6 months. I was gonna keep plan anyways, but always nice to a get discount.

I was told I need to wait six months to get a 50% off from Retention department. I only have the data plan and didn't get a tablet so no contract. I have this new plan for three months. I don't really need this data plan. If I really just cancel it will the agent give me 100% off?
