Bring Your Own Phone discount

Hi,

 

I noticed that Fido is now offering a 10% Bring Your Own Phone discount like the other carriers. Would I be able to take advantage of this discount as an existing customer?

 

I own an unlocked phone purchased from Google.

I am NOT on a tab plan or contract with Fido.

I am sbuscribed to a Fido Smart plan already.

 

Thanks.

Hey everyone!

 

        Although this thread is quite old, I'd like to add a little update since I came across it. Existing customers are definitely eligible to take advantage of the 10% BYOD offer, but certain conditions need to be met and they are as follow:

                            - Account cannot be under a contract, 

                            - Only with CURRENT IN-MARTKET STANDARD PLAN without contract.

                            - The new BYOP Plans offers are not compatible with the BYOD discount until further notice.

                            - Discount can & will be remove if a contract renewal phone upgrade is done.

 

 

Hope this Helps.

"Offer available to customers who bring in an unlocked phone with new activation of Fido service on any Smart plan. Credit of 10% applied each month, before taxes."

 

That is the fine print,  Pretty clear you need to activate now phone on any Smart plan.   Activation fee is $35 so how much 10% you have to save to recoup that.

Hi Bonjovi! 

 

Here's how it works:

If you're on a Tab24 agreement, you'll need to make sure that you remain within the same plan category. If you downgrade category, then you'll be charged the difference in the subsidy offered at the time you signed your agreement. 

- Max plans offer the highest subsidy 

- Smart plans offer a lower subsidy

- Standard plans offer the lowest subsidy 

- BYOP plans don't offer any since you bring your own phone (no agreement needed)

Let me know if you need any clarification on this Smiley 

 

So to answer your question our Talk and Text plans are Standard plans + their BYOP version (bottom right corner of the page). Make sure to select your province on the top right corner of the page.

 

Let me know what you think!

Hi FidoOlivier. How long does the 10% discount remain on the account?

Hey SteveF!

 

Our BYOP plans now include the discount built-in the price. You'll keep it as long as you don't take an agreement for a new phone.

Re: Bring Your Own Phone discount

I have a BYOD 10% discount on my account from 2013 (or maybe early 2014, I would have to lookup the exact date) with a month-to-month plan. Does that 10% discount expire after a certain amount of time?

 

Thanks for the quick reply!

Re: Bring Your Own Phone discount

I'd have to look at your account to make sure!

You want me to look into that for you?
