Not burner but a temp line I don't intend to use, aka a new #

I think I might get hit with activation unless I can get that waived.

Sept 22 - Ported out to Freedom
Sept 23 - Morning got email saying a Fido Ambassador will be calling me in the next few days
Sept 25 - Called into Winback number, but they don't have my number listed as having any Winback offers.

Should I sit tight? Did all of you who called into Fido get confirmed that your number has a targeted offer before they gave you the $45/25GB deal?

I received an email on Monday morning, called in the afternoon and they said that my number wasn’t in the system even though my sister’s (who moved at the same time as me) was in the system. I called them 4 times on Tuesday and the last agent talked to his supervisor and let me have the plan even though I wasn’t in the system.

In Vancouver. Previously on the $50 for 15 GB plan.

Sept 24: Ported to Freedom around 5PM Pacific Time
Sept 25: Got a call around noon from an unknown number.

Fido rep asked why I left. I advised Shaw has a $45 for 25 GB plan. She immediately offered up $35 for 25GB. No haggling or pushback. Also got my wife on this plan as well.

My friend called winback right after me and was first offered $5 off, but eventually got the $10 after asking again.

Thanks for the tip OP

What number did your friend call? I just tried 844-836-5948 and they said they couldnt offer me anything to match $45 for 25gb...

I switched two numbers to Freedom prepaid, then same day got an email from Fido, day after I called them and told them about the email and they right away offered me $45/25gb byop, but then he said if I do 2-years contract, he can do $35/25gb per line and said why not.

I did ask for my other two Fido lines still with Fido and he said he cannot do anything as they are still with Fido. I called 1-844-836-5948. Also I couldn't re-use my simcards and he had to send me new ones, not sure why.

Damn, looks like it's super easy to get the $10 off, I should've pushed harder.

I do not know, I called Fido today to do a triangle swap and they denied me, googling it aswell confirms Fido doesnt triangle swap, it’s really bizarre, Because I did this for my brother last year on ROGERS and they did a triangle swap for me, but Fido will not. I’m going to port my existing line out, then see if I can port it back in using in the plan I got lol, if that doesn’t work I’ll just call in for the winback again hope I get it. If not I’ll just use the new number, port my old number back to Fido, Cancle it, wait 3 months and get my old number back, as it they don’t release it for 3 months

Well this was unexpected, my new iPhone came with bonus urbeats 3 headphones. Must be a unadvertised Fido promo.
