Left about 3 months ago. Got this offer

- unlimited Canada wide etc etc
- 5gb
- $560 credit
- s9 64gb free
- $60/mth

BUT. Now that I agreed to come back in, it is $80/mth in my online account. Left a VM at 1855-343-6946 and awaiting call back. If it is $80, I don't think I am going to bite. I'll return the phone.

Note: I am still waiting for the phone and order confirmation email. Will keep you posted if anything changes.
Any updates?

I was with Fido a while ago, this deal would definitely get me to go back!

Damn this is hot! I want a phone for the wife... already have the X. I ported both numbe from Fido 3 months ago to the koodo $40/6GB PM migration loophole. Is it possible to sign up for new number instead of porting back in? Can the credit be used to pay off the phone tab?

Yep I heard about it too. But that deal expired last week. Now the new deal is $399 - $300(credit). So you will pay $99 for iphone x 64 GB

And for 256 GB phone $599 - $300 (credit) = $299

Phone plan: $80 dollars originally but 25% off on that too. It comes to $60 per month.
Canada wide calling
International texts
5GB data

I left the voicemail and got the call back. I ordered 64 gigs phone for $99. Probably I will receive the phone today or tomorrow.

Is it possible to negotiate more things? Or is this already extremely hot, take it or leave it deal?

I tried negotiating more on price and also on plan to add 7 dollar package (visual voicemail, caller ID, US calling for 1 cent for 1 minute etc.) but they couldn't give it. I think that's the best they could give for now.

Fido does not have caller id with this bundle? And what about data add on’s i would say i average 3-5gb per month so I would not feel as 5gb would be enough

Why are people calling this warm...? $60 for 5GB of data and a phone is already a decent deal, then you factor in that you're getting a $1500 phone for $113... what's the catch? Isn't this pretty hot?

I would call this hot for an iphone x. For any other flagship, it be warm to me. The sad part is getting deal is pretty much ymmv. Its a small chance unless you were actually a former fido customer who recently ported out.

How recent should one have been a Fido customer to be considered for a Winback? Anyone know?

True, it's a per person basis.
