The agent said "the offer has been effective since July 18th, 2013 but is coming to an end February 28, 2017". What?!!!
Spoke to James see conversation below:

6:52 PM Me:
Yes I heard from a friend who signed up today that the multi-line discount will expire in February is that true?
6:53 PM James :
As far as I know right now I have heard no mention of that happening, I am looking on your account individually, and I am not seeing that the discount will expire, If it will expire there will likely be a series of emails / texts from Fido about it before it happens, but I have not heard of it happening

No sim cost for me for two devices but had to pay activation.

Overage cost is the same as this plan - $5/100MB. You think I should keep my current plan instead? Here is my data usage in the past 12 months from Nov. 2016 to Dec. 2015.

I don't know if it's still available, but it's better to get a Google Voice number (US) first and people can reach you with that number. VPN is needed.

sim card fee it seems some have gotten out of but I don't think anyone got out of the activation fee.

Can't get out of the activation fee, but the SIM card fee is negotiable. I was lucky and didn't have to negotiate as I was never charged a fee to begin with. They just told me it was $75+tax first month and $60+tax every month after.

I haven't gotten an email either, but I spoke with someone via chat and my account is in the system. I was told I may not get an email until after I receive my sim and activate my phone on their network.

as long as you have the service and it's reflected when you log in you should be ok

Yeah that doesn't seem unusual. Data speeds will vary depending on where you are. I was getting 32 Mbps download speeds in Yorkdale, but 10 Mbps download speeds at home in North York.

Thanks, my neighbor:)

I am wondering what other carriers' speed. I had Telus and feel its LTE is noticeable faster

Also, if you go with the $5 VP with fido you do get 2500 call forwarding minutes. Some people go ahead with that VP due to bigger Voice mail and premium US calling rates.

I hope you are aware that call forwarding is only for local numbers (or canadian) definitely not international numbers. so there you go..
For me call-forwarding is extremely useful, because I rotate between 3, sometimes 4 phones, so I would call-forward my main # to whichever phone I'm using. I also use Wind for USA roaming, so I would call-forward my main # to my Wind # when travelling in the US.

I was told by Fido chat rep and confirmed in store, that sim cards are free. Basically $15 per line covers $10 sim card and $5 activation fee. Didn't pay a cent for my sim cards.

So, I ended up porting my Rogers 6GB Superplan to Fido, and my Bell Small Business Plan to Virgin.

It might be faster, depending on your reception to the closest tower. After living with Wind/Freedom for 4 agonizing years I wanted to switch to a carrier with the best indoor reception, and based on my research it appears that Rogers/Fido has the best average indoor reception in the GTA.
