Hello. My Fido app updated recently and the new updated version changed how data is displayed. It now says 700 used but it doesn't tell me if that's out of the data I already have or if that's over my data. The previous set up was easier to understand . Can someone tell me if I'm over or under my 2 G of data
Solved! Go to Solution.
We're aware that some of our customers are experiencing this when attempting to track their data use through the My Account app and we're working on getting it fixed as fast as we can.
In the meantime, I can confirm that, as long as the app is displaying that you have used less than the amount of data that comes with your plan, then you have not yet gone over your allotted data.
In terms of knowing how much data you have remaining, you can simply substract the amount you've used from the amount in your plan. A GB contains 1024 MB, so, for example, for a plan that comes with 2 GB, you would have up to 2048 MB available to use. If you subtract 700 MB from that, you will have 1348 MB remaining.
You can also track your data by dialing *3337 from your Fido phone, as well as on Fido.ca.
Hope this helps!
The current data tracking display is not convenient and friendly. I definitely know how to do the calculation, but it could have a chance I or my other subscribers forgot how's the plan. If it's an issue, to be fix, then I would be okay to wait. If not, I would recommend to indicate back the remaining data allowance. Thank you
We know how important it is to be able to track your usage conveniently and this isn't the normal display for the app. We're aware of it and our technicians are currently working on getting it fixed asap! In the meantime, you should be able to track your usage normally on your online account on fido.ca directly or by calling *3337.

This is also something that can happen in this scenario. However if you're not able to look at your data usage in any way, I would have to recommend you to count your data usage manually. There are a lot of data manager apps that would be able to measure exactly how much data you are using at any time, as well as build reports on your consumption for free.
I hope this helps!
