Change prepaid (By the minute) to promo Post -Paid at advertised $20.00/Month.

I have a reasonably large pre-paid balance. (Wife's phone, little usage but always refilled when necessary).

I understand that the prepaid balnce would be transferred to the new  post-paid account and then used to cover the monthly bills.

Question:  Can some of that balance be used to purchase a phone from Fido.  Eg: If acct. balance is $200, use $120 of it to buy say, an LG phone and have the latter charge deducted from the current balance?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello CAVANNVS,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Unfortunately, I do not believe you can use some of your pre-paid balance to purchase a device (see here). The monies in your pre-paid account is for airtime and services and will be transferred to your new post-paid account for the same. Your monthly plan would constitute airtime and services.

 

Hope this helps Smiley
