I just called mobile shop (loblaws)and was advised of this also.
What if I port my number over to freedom first and then Fido today? Would that still work? I want to keep my current Number (Rogers) but want to somehow get the Freedom migration offer.

Why is everyone talking about porting in? Is a port in necessary?

Guy said you can only get the 200 credit when you bring in a second line (not even with a tablet line).

Anyone knows a place where once can get the 200 credit without any bs or unnecessary hoops?
I don’t think it’s bs. It seems that the $200 credit really is only for additional lines, just like the extra $5 off monthly.

Add a 35$ line and they will drop it to 25$ a month with credit. Carry that line for 3 months until you get the 200$ credit then cancel it. Only if they waive all fees which they were doing last week.

Ports are a delicate process. One wrong move and the number goes to purgatory and the sales rep shrugs their shoulders (I used to be one of those reps, and have shrugged many a shoulder)

As per mobile shop, a port from freedom to fido is necessary to trigger credits (start on 2nd bill once verified)

I called the Fido Store (Corporate) and they said you need to make 2 transactions to get 1 $200 bill credit (e.g. 1 HUP and 1 new act.). I thought only the add a line activation would be sufficient. Did anyone else experience this in BC?

Wal-Mart says the freedom phone number needs to have been active for at least 30 days before porting to fido for the $11 discount to be active

fido corporate stores (where ever they are) are likely the best bet for maximum promotions on BYOB - plan withOUT phones. With phones better to shop wirelesswave/walmart/mobileshop/etc

$200 credit confirmed NOT at MobileShop or Walmart-Wireless Shops or Wirelesswave/Tbooth
Have not checked Costco/WirelessEtc

Or you can get $150 bill credit for adding on device protection (only needs to be on the account until you receive the bill credit, then you can cancel)
asking you to get device protection in exchange for credits is common....but not true! its like, help me get my commissions and I'll splash some credits your way.

new customers are worth more to them. But I called and converted my $65/10gb line to $55/13gb - that was the best I got for an existing line. I wanted to save money so I rejected their $75/20gb offer.

I want to see if I can combine this with the $11 off for Freedom customers deal mentioned in a couple of other threads.
Is it with contract or month to month?
