[Fido] Fido / Virgin - $25 unlim cw talk/text + 1000 international minutes

Fido & Virgin have new plans available in store. (Won't show up on the website)

Only good for those customers that want the free international calling add-on to the countries listed below.
1000 minute international calling add-on is typically a $20/month for customers or 0.05 to 0.10 cents/minute to call out an 'international saver'

There is a Lucky Mobile version of this plan that has 500MB or 1GB data, but no international minutes so choose whether 1000 long distance minutes or data are better for you.

$25/MONTH (BRING YOUR OWN PHONE) or $35/MONTH for 2 year contract on TAB SMALL/SILVER
  • Unlimited canada-wide talk
  • Unlimited international texts
  • Caller ID
  • Voicemail
  • 1000 international minutes to Australia, Bangladesh, China, Macau, Hong Kong, Italy, India, Germany, Mexico, Taiwan and the UK. (Virgin does not include Macau)


Koodo also has the same plans but no international minutes.

  • Data block is included for free on Fido. Koodo charges $2 and Virgin charges $2.50
  • $35 Activation fee is credited back on the 3rd bill for Fido & Virgin.
  • Koodo does not credit the fee back but has a $50 referral credit.
  • With Koodo, refer yourself, save $20/month for 5 months and just hope you get a $15 10GB add on text within that timeframe? Regardless, $5/month for 5 months is amazing
  • Virgin also has 10% off for additional lines bringing the plan to $22.50/month

Prevents accidental data usage; this plan includes no data so without data block it would get very expensive very quickly if your phone unexpectedly started using data.

AB for sure, the rest of the provinces I'm not certain about.
Since it's one of those unadvertised plans, it's hard to say which provinces have it since you can't just check the site.
AB/BC usually have the same deals, though.

It can be activated anywhere that sells Fido. (WOW, BB, WM or Just regular Fido store)
Koodo, Fido, Telus, Public Mobile, Virgin customer.

Same idea in ON
They are billing it in mall as a "seniors plan" (because block data?)
Koodo $40 Canada Wide + 8GB + 1000 Intl LD
Public $120 Province Wide + 12GB - $6 Autopay - $12 Loyalty - $45 Refer = $19 per Month
Freedom $35 ($37-BTS) North America Wide + 8GB + 1GB Roaming

TBH, I got that Public Mobile deal for $23.99 a month with unlimited talk/text Canada wide plus international texting and 1GB of data thanks to RFD forums. I don't think anyone out there will beat that price!!
Yes, I'd like to price match RedFlagDeals please - Ken Adams

You're missing the point of this deal: It's for people who also need the 1000 international minutes. Also can get 3 GB of data for an additional $15 or less if using dual Sim phone.

Looks like you can do it thru chat as well. I just confirmed with Fido. Only thing is Fido will mail the SIM to you.

How many Canadian model phones have dual SIM?

I have an iPhone XS Max which supports eSIM (virtual SIM) but many carries do not support it (yet).
