Hi @angs & welcome to the Community! Smiley Happy

 

When you log into your Fido.ca account, select Services, then select your phone number. The Change Plan option will be below the My Plan section.

 

Let me know if you need any help!

Doesn't work, when I click "checkout" it says something went wrong. Can't change my plan.

Have literally tried for the last 12 hours to change my plan following the above instructions with no success - just "oops something went wrong".

Due to many incidents and inconveniences, Fido advised if I have to watch for the promotions. Now I see this one 10 gb for $60.00. The loyalty Dept promised that they should do something about it for a resolution and credit me the discounts as promised. I have been waiting for almost 3 years. Can someone call me. Please as it is busy and today is the last day. Thanks. My phone xxx-xxx-xxxx

@Sara55 it will show as $60 5gb that's the plan you want the other 5gb will be added automatically by Fido. It can take up to 2-3 billing cycles before it is added but it will be.

Hi everyone! @KAPABLE-K is right; the 5 GB bonus will be added automatically after 2-3 billing cycles if the plan is changed online. Smiley Happy

There is no 5 gb plan for 60 cad in the list. And in addition, it is timing out now!

Hi, I'd like to change my plan to the advertised special of $60 & 10GB, I don't seem to be able to do via, app, internet or getting through on the 1888#... How can one do this if all avenues of communication to Fido are failing... Disappointing... and a waste of time!

very dissapointment with fido, no phone lines, no chat and all the stores are packed.

 

their servers must be obsolete if they can't handle this much traffic or rogers blocked their server to get maximum clients

What a dissapointing experience with Fido, they don't answer their phones, chat lines give errors, website unresponsive. Leaving as soon as I can.

ALL the providers are experiencing the same thing, not just fido. disappointing: Yes but it was expected since all the companies launched the same plan at the same time, blame them for doing that

Hello,

 

With Fido's website, chat and telephone services down, will Fido be extending the deal, or honouring it to those who have been trying to switch over for the last few hours or days?
 
Just like many others, I'm unable to change my plan. When I walked into a Fido store, they told me to call customer service...
 
Thank you,
Leigh

I think they are doing it intentionally as everything else is working on their website
