I am currently in a 2 year contract for an iphone 7 plus and paying $65 per month. If I BYOD the same plan would be $48 per month. Basiclly $17 was add per month for the iphone 7 plus contract. Now when my contract ends will Fido automatically remove the $17 per month for the Iphone 7 plus contract?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Has the policy changed?!? You used to be able to switch to a BYOP plan once your contract had ended (see here). You just couldn't subsidise another phone some time down the line because the plan would not contain a subsidy.
If you can still switch to a BYOP plan after your contract term, the subsidy will not get removed automatically. You would have to ask to switch to a BYOP plan.
@alex14 That's a very good question but unfortunately the plus $ amount you pay to get a subsidy for a phone does not get removed at the end of your term. The only way to have it removed is to change your plan.
This is one of the reasons I will NEVER increase my monthly plan fee payments just to get a shiny new phone. Its not worth it for people like myself, and paying more to have the latest phone does not make financial sense to someone like me.
@Paolo I agree with you, but on a business side its a genius way to avoid grandfathered plans. That's why i'm going to hang on to my $56 plan for as long as I can and still get a subsidy on a phone without paying more.
