I tried live chat earlier and was able to get this plan, but it would have required a hardware upgrade or a new line.

i'm an existing FIDO customer on the $50/ 4gb plan. Was able to get 9gb for $50 without buying a new device through FIDO CHAT. Mentioned that i was a loyal customer and don't want to have to go through a winback.

But win back would be better. Going rate seems to be $39/month for 9GB.

Or are you saying you got $50 plan less $11?

winback would be a better deal. i'm just too lazy to port in and out. Not sure if i would even get the call back for the $39 for 9gb

A this point.. see what deals black friday brings. September has been good on some pricing wars.

Also note some Koodo stores do offer competitive plan not only porting from Freedom. They'll take your money even if coming from Rogers/Fido.

Isn't Koodo offering the same plan? You're probably good with either provider, especially if you're in the GTA.

Koodo doesn't advertise it, but they have name display on incoming calls - which I didn't realize I valued until I switched to Fido and didn't have it. But your name doesn't show up on outgoing calls. Might still be an option for you.

Hi I ported my number from Freedom to Fido yesterday with 50$ plan (11$ off) and got a S10 as well. Am now thinking to switch from Fido to Koodo. Is it possible to switch the plan now to Kooda without any penalty?

I just got on this plan and I confirmed with the rep about caller display. This is the plan details. It does mention caller display and from what I can gather caller display and name display are the same.

Data Overage Protection. Data is paused once you hit your plan’s limit. To use more data, you can buy data top-ups.

The website lists "call display" as part of the $50 package, then as part of a $7 add on it lists "name display".

I like to filter my calls, so name display is important... anyone else with a $50/9GB koodo deal that can confirm call and name display both are displayed?

I almost signed up with Fido, at the credit check it wanted a drivers license or password or SIN. A ran off to get my DL and after entering all the info... it said it failed due to timeout. So don't linger if you want to sign up.

Found an old thread on RFD - koodo does have both, Fido has then separate.
I tried to sign up with fido, but their credit check system kept failing with an "unknown error" today and yesterday. Well... I went to Koodo for essentially the same deal and everything worked.

now i wonder how much credit impact will this have for flip flopping 4 accounts and going through 8 credit checks :|
