Not eligible for Fido Roam or Spotify (Fido Pulse plans only)

No device subsidies (strictly a BYOP plan)



YMMV on 10% off on second line on the same account, most people have gotten it, but some have been told this plan is ineligible



New customers:

Get a friend who's been on Fido for at least 15 days to give you a referral code, you'll both receive a $25 credit after 90 days

http://www.fido.ca/web/content/whyfido/ ... nd?lang=en

Can refer up to $300 a year, 5 per month. If you can refer the max $300 which is only 12 people a year, your plan is effectively $15/month. $40x12=$480 - $300 = $180/12= $15.

Sign up at a Partner Retail I.e. Walmart, Best Buy, London Drugs and you can get the $15 activation fee waived. The credit will be on your second or third bill.

Is the 1000 international minutes over the lifetime of the plan or is it on a monthly basis? Any way to increase the mini voicemail as an add on?

I just copied the info forwarded from my friend. All data, talk and text plans contain that so I guess they just copied and pasted.

Is it for new activation only? And is it already announced? Can't find it on the site.

Did you call in for that? It's definitely for new activations. If Fido stores not doing it, any third party retailer can do it. My friends from Walmart so all Walmart can get you the plan.
