Looking to upgrade 4S to 6S but keep my existing plan

Hi,

 

I went to a local kiosk and asked them if I could upgrade my current 4S which I've had for 5 years now I think, to a new 6S. They said I would not be able to carry over my plan because it's originally from my 3G. It's unlimited calling/messages + 6gb of data.


They said I would have to buy the 6S outright for 1000+ dollars and they could carry it over to that phone.

 

I'm not really a fan of buying phones outright, otherwise I wouldn't be in a plan. I prefer to buy the phone at a discounted rate and stick in a plan, since I've had no issues with Fido and been with them for 8+ years.

 

On top of that, I still have Fido dollars, I'd like to spend before they become non-existant.

 

The Max plan that closely resembles mine is inbetween 115-130 dollars, which is 30-45 dollars more than I am paying now... That would be out of the question.

 

My question for Fido is, would I be able to pay $530 (minus 180 with Fido dollars), to carry over my 6gb plan and keep paying $85 a month? Or at least barter a bit? (Pay $5 more or pay $85 to get 4gb a month?)

I really don't want to leave Fido, but there are plans with other big companies that offer more data for less price.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hey @mattplex

Welcome to the Community! 

The discount offered on the phone is always related to your plan category.

If your plan category offers a subsidy, you can definitely keep it.

I'll go ahead and send you a PM to check it out Smiley

Talk soon!

What was the end result? I'm sort of in the same boat looking at a new device but not looking to lose my current plan but I'm not paying an exorbitant amount upfront for the phone.

same here. I want to renew my subscription and upgrade my phone from iphone 5 to 6s but don't have budget for cashing out $300 for 6s.
