Happy With Home Wireless Service

Fido sent the box and sim card. Took only moments to activate it.

 

Able to transfer my Bell telephone number over without many issues (Bell wasnt happy)

 

Been using the FIDO HOME WIRELESS for approximately 3 months, absolutely no issues what so ever. I admit I placed the box upstairs on the top floor free of obstructions and receive a GREEN light for signal strength at all times.

 

Disconnected the BELL wires from coming inside the house and all jacks in the house work great.

 

Happy with service, no "surprise" charges on the invoice either.

 

Essex, Ontario, Canada

Re: Happy With Home Wireless Service

 I'd also like to give the Home Phone a thumbs up as well. Signed up at a kiosk in the mall, they transfered my Bell number and gave me a temp number. In only three days my number got switched seemlessly with no "Bell" problems.

 

Reception is crystal clear on both ends , and you can't be beat the price for a home phone $10!! Even $25 for a non Fido cunstomer is the best $$ around.

 

Well done Fido!! , though you should advertise this option more.

Re: Happy With Home Wireless Service

I also like the wireless home phone. 

 

I was able to hook it up to the dryloop by disconnecting the Bell line at the demarcation point and have all my in home phone jacks work.  This easily solved the issue of feedback interference from my cordless phone base.  I now have the WHP modem in the basement where it gets a green light status signal.

 

Only thing I am disappointed about is that the caller ID is only numeric and not name display.  I understand it's a network issue.  Is Fido working on a solution for this because I got used to name display at home with conventional hardline home phones, allowing me to avoid telemarketers.

Re: Happy With Home Wireless Service

I am kind of caught inbetween providers with the new wireless phone.

I have Bell land line and my Internet porovider uses their wetloop wires. In order for me to switch to dryloop I have to disconnect the landline with Bell.  

So I have first to transfer my number to Fido 

Then I will have to install dryloop. But at that point I will lose my Internet connection.

Does any one know the sequence of actions that will help me not to lose my Bell phone number and not to have interruption with Internet?

psyling you can ask your current isp to "convert" your wet loop to dry loop and keep your service intact without disrupting it.

Re: Happy With Home Wireless Service

Sorry for reviving such an old post. I'm currently thinking about switching to the Fido home phone from Bell. Can anyone explain the process to me? Do I only need to call Fido for the switch and let them handle it all, or do I also need to call Bell? I believe Bell requires a 30-day termination period from when you notify them (hence my confusion as to whether I need to call them or not). Thanks in advance!

Re: Happy With Home Wireless Service

you would contact the new company you are switching to, ie: fido.  if you contact bell and notify them they will put a cancellation request on your account which would esentially block the number port, so thats the number one mistake people make when they are porting,   also because your porting and not cancelling you ignore the 30 day notice period, because porting is instantly.

Bell will still bill 30-days out from the date the port out request is received. Rogers will do this as well.
