Just joined RFD to post about a BYOP plan that works if you still have the grandfathered ($30) 6GB add-on.

Fido is currently offering a $25 BYOP loyalty voice-only plan that can be stacked with grandfathered data add-ons.

So currently my plan is $55 a month for 6GB data on a month to month basis. I was shocked (and I think the rep was too) that my old data add-on was still compatible with new voice plans.

Knew I held on to my 6GB for a reason!
Where did you get this info from? Last time someone posted about something like this, I phoned in and was told there was no such plan.

Hey, I got this plan too after I saw the post. I went through the livechat and asked them to change me to this plan (I said $25/mth loyalty BYOP plan). They asked me where I found out about it and I just said my friend called in and they told him about this plan. After that, they just switched me over no questions asked.

Worked for me too. Didn't ask where I heard about it though. Easy peasy. Thanks.

Got the winback call and switched back to Fido. They said the $80 extra large plan was increased to $85 tho so I have to pay 63.75/month after 25% off for 2 years. Got S9+ free, 5GB, pulse etc. Process was relatively smooth. Wish I could have combined the trade in offer tho.

I got $65 5gb iphone8+ $329 and 3 month free in BC after Calling and talking about porting to Bell's $65 1.5gb iPhone 8+ $329 with $200 credits. They match Bell price for me and offered me 3 months free. Not as well as winback plan but good enough for me.

Update: I ported out of fido after 7 years being with them to freedom (who actually have terrible service [customer service & cell service]) back on thursday. Got the call from fido marketing today and got an iphone X 64GB on the 10GB for $71.25/month+tax plan with zero extra fees= Me V.Happy ( I was on the fido 10gb for $60 plan prior, $270 more over the course of 2 years)

Everybody do it on a post paid plan, not pre paid plan.

Everybody do it!
Congrats! Is your monthly bill gonna be just $75.25 +tax, no tab on top? Went to Freedom turns out their iPhone X is on a $40 per month tab, on top of the monthly plan cost. That’s a lot! Did you get a phone from Freedom? TIA.

Meh, 10gb for $60 is still better since it has pulse features. There's also the 50$ 6gb migration deal going on which is also pulse plan

I got excited and made a typo! it's actually $71.25 a month + tax! Nothing on top of that
When I ported to freedom I did BYOP since my iphone 6s is still working mostly and I anticipated fido's marketing call to upgrade. Basically its the extra large tab and the agent said it was with a 25%ish discount for 2 years

Nearly impossible. No wait.. IT IS Impossible to get a decent deal in QC. I'm trying to port out of Fido to get a winback offer, but I dont want to risk not getting a deal. No one else really offers a better deal than $49/6gb a month.
