I ordered Tuesday evening, I got the email with the contract on Thursday. But no shipping email yet.
Ordered Monday (Nov 23) around noon, arrived Wednesday mid-day. They'll send you a shipping email.

For mine it's actuallt very fast...overnight shipping.

But Fido messed up my address so FEDEX kept the tablet for another day and I had to call to schedule pickup.

Man...there are tons of people lining up for pickup..

Actually, they screwed up my address and I had to pick it up as well. For some reason they used my previous address...

I would strongly aware you guys that if you guys sign up for this tablet, you will be locked with Fido for another 2 yrs regardless to your talk/text (phone plan). If you want to port out your phone, you will have to pay remaining balance for tablet.

Talk/text cancel -> tablet cancel -> you have to pay for remaining balance on tablet. I figure the hard way today when I inform them I am going to port out and this is what I have been told even when I sign up I was told there will be no penalize to port out but it is not true.

Be careful guys

So they cancelled your tablet line because you ported out the phone line?

I inform them that I am going to port out since they didnt offer any things good after my 2 yr contracts expire and they start tellong me about the tablet plan that will be cancelled due to it and how much that I have to for the tablet ($300 + tax for a crappy tablet....

This is a reason I want to warn anyone in this thread not to fall into this trap

I called them yesterday to inquire how much it would be to cancel my current plan the customer service rep told me that there would be no charge but he may have been talking about my phone line and not my tablet lines I was going to part out your freedom but kind of concerned about this as well

Usually, I dont deal with Fido, I always ported out number, I did this time because of the tablet. You dont want to port out and they never call you so you stuck with this crappy tabet and pay for it right?

How can you get 2nd line for free? How much do you pay in total?

I think as long as you sign a new contract for a phone line you can get this offer.

I'm a fido customer with a boyd monthly plan, no contract, the first time I asked on the chat, they said no to me.

Next time I called Fido to match Freedoms offer and they put me through to retention. I signed a 2 year phone contract and they were able to add the samsung tab 8.4 for free and $0 a month for 4gb data.
RFD makes me :lol:

What kind of a 2 year contract did you get? Because I just got a BYOD 4GB plan for $35.
