The only things you can buy with FidoDollars are old ugly phones and options like call forwarding and evening start at 5.. I have an unlimited plan and a iPhone 4.. what can I do with those FidoDollars?
The only thing I would want to buy is a iPHONE CHARGER FOR CAR and there is no way to buy accessory like we use to be able to. This is complete . FIDO DOLLARS ARE USELESS

Hope this helps!
By the way, Wicky, I am not trying to pick an argument with you here. I know you always try to help. I am just trying to make sure the most accurate information is being provided, even if it conflicts with common practices at store level.
@Going_Under: Just for the phone and for add-ons for a period of 1-2 months.
@10yearfido: No, and I don't disagree with what you're saying. It just remains a case by case situation.
I have to say that I find the whole "FidoDollars are useless" debate quite exhausting and would sometimes wish Fido just get rid of them. People are so spoiled that they can't appreciate what they have. Yes there are conditions to use the FidoDollars, but at least you have them. Fido could just as easily take them away and leave their clients with nothing just like the other providers. You'll be subject to the same conditions and fees as you are now, except you won't have FidoDollars to help with any part of it.
It's just frustrating. Kind of like making supper for someone just to have them complain that it's not exactly what they wanted after telling you that they agreed to what you were making.
I have to agree, they're pretty useless. What happens at the end of my contract? I get stuck with a bunch of FIDO dollars that I cannot use for accesories such as a bluetooth set. Its a way to make sure that people that are too greedy will stay with FIDO in order not to lose their precious dollars. After 2 and a haft year with a data plan, I have 60 dollars. I am not staying with FIDO because they have no phones, or almost none to offer and also their plans are terrible. I will pay 35$ with Videotron, that is 30 dollars cheaper per mount! Oh... There goes my videotron dollars, some I can put in my pocket.
