I was on the phone for an hour and 45 minutes to port our numbers over tonight to the deal. That sucked.

2 things I have noticed since porting and hoping people here have an answer for me.

1. When I try to turn on Wifi calling it fails and tells me to contact Fido. Is there another fix other than sitting on the phone forever again?
2. The ability to turn on Data Bytes does not show up for me in the Fido app. Any thoughts on why?

They said the only free tablet is if I upgrade my phone unfortunately. I sure was hoping to get a freebie.

I called them today, in midst of black Friday weekend, I thought to get something good, and I think I did.
QC plan, 50$ for 2gb + 2gb bonus for 24 months and 10$ off for 24 months, making it 40$ per month plan.
I also got 200$ credit that will be applied towards the first bill, I got S10 120$+tax.

I think you got swindled on the data portion as thats really low.

I agree with you, other option was $50/15gb for BYOD, or 55$ for 8+2gb +extra 200 off, this was good option I believe more data is appreciated but I won't need it and I prefer to pay less monthly, I pushed quite a bit to get extra data for 40$ but couldn't.

How far back can they trace your number. I think originally my carrier was fido, maybe 10+ years ago.

hey guys, so I wasn't eligible, but my friend was, the rep said that he would send out two sims, one for my friend and the other for me. However, the catch here is that the plan would have to be under my friends account for three months and only then I could take over. Question; can I transfer over to my account right away? Also, once you get the sim..does it need to be activated? (just trying to see whether he would be billed regardless of calling in.)

maybe someone else can chime in on there experience but I got a similar winback plan last year and when I asked them to do a transfer of responsibility they wouldn't honor the promotion for the person taking it over

Anyone know if the $50/15GB plan includes full call/name display and voicemail, or is it limited to mini voicemail (ie. 3 messages and number display minus name display)?

From what I know, you only get mini voicemail.

I just called Fido and got:
Samsung S9 for 38$
2y plan 8 gig 65$/monthly 
200$ discount
10$/15m
Recap: 55$/15m (825$)+65$/9m(585$)=1248$/24month

Trust Me Having the data bucket as large as it can will be helpful especially BYOD. The 50/15 is a good deal and good plan investment. I don't personally go over 2 GB myself but having the room to use it gives me more options especially when ISP do maintenance on their internet line and then I have to rely on my cellphone data plan as a backup.

have you tried if your number still shows up as prior FIDO number? I too was originally fido 10+ years ago and would like to know.
