@Faakaaf999 The MY ACCOUNT section on Fido's website layout has since changed the option to change your number is now at the bottom under the QUICK ACTIONS sections.

Re: How to change phone number online

Hello Igameruthless,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Firstly, do you have a postpaid or prepaid plan? While a number change online is free for postpaid customers, there may be a fee for prepaid customers unless you're changing it because you're moving to a different region outside of your local calling area (see here).

 

  Since changing a phone number for prepaid plans may incur a fee, it's possible it might not be available via My Account.

 

  If you do have a postpaid plan, you should be able to get the option via My Account --> Usage & Services --> Mobile --> Phone Number (if more than one phone number on account) --> Change My Number.

**edit** Here are some things to note after changing your phone number.**

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Re: How to change phone number online

I wanted to change my mobile phone number and every similar topic was telling the same thing :

 

"You can do so by logging into My Account on Fido.ca. Click on Services tab and the option Change My Number appears right underneath."

 

There is no "Services" tab on my account page and there is not a single instance of "Change My Number" option on the entire website. Is there an actual way to change my number online or am I only finding outdated forum threads?

Hey @rmyhovych!

 

I moved your post to this thread as it does deal with the same topic Smiley

 

The phone number change option does still appear in the same place. @Cawtau has even provided a handy screenshot to show exactly where it is Smiley

 

If you do not see that option then it's due to the fact that you do not have account holder access on Fido.ca - this would mean that your bills are also unavailable.

 

If you log in with your phone number, please register again with an e-mail address so that you can have full access.

 

If you do log in with your e-mail then you can either use a different e-mail to register as an account holder or let us know and we'll send you a PM to delete the old profile so you can register again.

 

I do hope this info helps, keep us posted! Very Happy
