i have about 6 months left on my fido contract and i would like to cancel due to a financial disposition i am in.
does anybody know how much this will cost me?
or a way out that won't cost me?
i can't afford to pay $45 a month anymore so this is why i have to get out now or i will be in debt.

No real general answer to be honest. It depends on when you contract was activated, you always have the option of lowering your plan down to 15.00 monthly as well.. If it is for the fact that a cell phone bill is not affordable porting the number to get another bill really isnt the solution.
Best of luck.

yes, the details are critical. if you've just signed up and have a shiny new subsidized $700 phone, I doubt fido will say they "understand" and let bygones be bygones.
if it were me in that situation, I would estimate what subsidy was left on the phone and offer to settle the account for a reasonable amount. That could be equal to the cancellation fee but normally the cancellation fees are excessive and unfair. Fido likes to think of plan cancelleations as a profit centre.
Paolo's advice is best. Find someone to sell your plan to, maybe on kijiji or e-bay or a phone forum. You will likely have to pay a premium/incentive to the buyer but it will almost surely be cheaper than the fido gouging. Other companies offering to cover the penalty only do it where they will profit more from the transaction (ie. long term contracts) so that is maybe not a good idea.

Hi everybody I am Fido customers since 5 years .I having same issues I am charged so much for my data every time. I just have no idea what to do here. I am paying more than 100 dollars for my bill.Everytime I use my cell phone I always switch off my data after usage. And at the same time when I talked to one of the representatives they suggested me to change my plan. And that’s the last thing I want to do. I am now thinking of cancel my contract early. Anybody have suggestions please help

I have until september of 2013 for my contract to expire, I am looking into cancelling my service early. My contract was renewed on september 2010. Any ball park range on how much it might be?
