Re: Temporary account suspension

I will be living abroad from now until September 25th, is there a way I can pause my subscription for that time and continue it?could u plz help to do it? My phone number is *********. Thnx!!!



** Edited to remove personal info **


@helloirene162 you will have to see if you qualify to have your account put on pause for the few months if not you can lower your monthly plan. A moderator can look into that for you.


Also you should remove your phone number from the post.



If you don't have an agreement and have been active with us for a minimum of 1 month, you're definitely eligible for our current temporary suspension offer. The temporary suspension is $7/month, and can be added for a minimum period of 2 months, and maximum period of 4 months. Note that this offer is subject to change at anytime and we can't guarantee that it will be available again in the future.

@helloirene162 I would love to do it for you but unfortunatelly I do not work for Fido i'm just a user like you. A moderator here can do it or you can call customer service.

Hi @helloirene162!

Hello Fido Team,


I am going to leave Canada for grad schools. Please advise if it is possible to suspend my current Fido account for more than one year? How much will I be charged monthly?

Hello. I forgot to suspend my account before travelling abroad for the holidays. Tried contacting customer service but wouldn't seem to be able to connect to anyone.

@alikey a temporally suspension can only be done by a Fido representative a moderator here can do it for you.


Alternatively you can also message Fido on Facebook or Twitter.
