[Fido] Unadvertised $45 Plan - Unlimited Canada Wide / International Text / 1GB DATA

Plan (FPMMM014G) from Fido is the same plan that is advertised on their website but with Voicemail (3) and unlimited international text messages.

When speaking to a Fido rep you would have to mention the plan's name for it to be available.

I was a Fido customer when I signed up for this plan last week but I was using Fido as a pay as you go plan, so this is was my first Plan with Fido (they did a credit check through the phone) I am not sure if this works for new customers or existing customers only.

Also the rep that I spoke to offered me 5$ a month for 1 year which is nice, but not a lot of people had success with that, but I thought I would put that out there.


As far as I know Spotify is not included with this plan.

Expiry date might be June 3 but I am not 100% sure about that.

UPDATE: Called in Today June 1st, I was told as of now the plan is still available and has no expiry date!

That's different. As the OP said, this unadvertised plan had unlimited international msg and voicemail but the Spotify, which is almost identical to a plan back to the beginning of last year. I am using a very similar one: $44.1 ($49 with 10% off BYOD).

This plan is suitable for someone who doesn't like Spotify but needs voicemail.

Why not just go with Koodo? they have excellent service and it's also $45 + tax.
Which one is better Koodo vs Fido - what do you guys think? I am planning on switching in the next few days.

Thanks for your help!

I just called a regular number, it wasn't through retention or anything.

I am wondering if I could get the $5 credit. A couple of months ago, I called in and asked if there was $5 credit. The rep told me they didn't have that option right now for my account. Is there any strategy to get it??

I really don't know, I didn't say anything, the rep I was talking to just offered me that, perhaps it's because it was my first plan with Fido or maybe it was because I called on a Friday and the rep was in a good mood..

Not bad. I'm on the $39 plan, always go over so pay $5 for an additional 250mb of data for a total of 650mb.

I'd bring my own phone, so $45-10% and see if they can renew my $5 credit a month.

Thanks OP

Yeah, that's a sweet plan! :confused:

Especially if it contains 20 texts a month. :razz:
