    Question 20GB 65$ Special Plan + Visual Voicemail

    Good afternoon!

    I discovered by accident that my main line that is on the 67$ 10GB retention plan + iPhone visual mail (7$)
    has a special offer for 20GB for 2$ less.

    Unfortunately there is very little info about what is included (see the first screenshot), and it seems that one cannot add the "Value Pack - iPhone Visual Voicemail"... only voicemail to text is available if doing it online.

    Does anyone have that plan or has added iPhone visual Voicemail to their phone?
    I'm an iPhone user, and love to have the visual voicemail as well as cheap calling to other countries.

    Thank you in advance.

    Do you see if the process expires your current Value Pack?

    It claims that my iPhone value pack is unecessary, but I don't see the functionality in the replacement addons, no mater if I select or deselect any of the addons.

    Would it be better for me to call in?
    Is there is more information about what is included in the plan? I don't see any fine print...
    Is there new fees for contacting the reps at fido? They mention that there is maybe a 10$ Fee, but I'm not sure it applies to us in Québec.

    Online chat did the switch for me, since the website wouldn't confirm that I would get to keep the iPhone Value Pack.

    Here is additional info I was provided with before the switch:

    Name Details
    Data 20GB
    Data Overage Protection • Data is paused when customers reach their data limit.
    • To unpause, customers can purchase additional data right from their phone.
    Minutes • Unlimited Canada-wide minutes
    Features • Unlimited text, picture and video messages from Canada to Canadian, US and international numbers
    • Call Display
    • Call Waiting
    • Conference Calling
    • Mini Voicemail (Add manually for activations or value pack changes)
    Fido Pulse Plan Benefits • 5 extra hours of data (1 hour, 5 times per billing cycle)

    Looks like the site is offering me that plan for $80... sucks it's actually cheaper for me to just take the Rogers 20GB promo for $75. So much for being a 15 year customer...

    Could be possible because you still under a Fido Agreement?

    I should have added that I’m not under contract or under any payment plan. I always buy my phones full price upfront. So Fritz’s suggestion is good.

    With your new Loyalty Plan, you can now get new Fido phones through Fido Payment Program.

    Good to know. I used to have no Payment program on my first plans.

    I still don't understand why the budget brands (Fido, Virgin) are still offering 7GB at $65, while for $10 more I'll never see an overage and stay connected with Rogers, Bell, Telus top tier brands. According to Fido's site, $75 / 10 GB with overages is what they're offering...

    I got lucky and got onto the 20GB / $75 promotion with Telus, an even better deal.

    It's all good. I ported to Telus and Fido winback dept. called the next day. I'm back now with the yellow dog $50/15GB.
