Hey @michee

 

Welcome to the Community. Smiley 

 

KAPABLE-K is correct that these kinds of plans are usually meant for tablets and internet devices. However, we can take a closer look into setting up certain restrictions on the line with you. 

 

I'll send you a PM so we can check out the details together!

Just want to clarify, it's possible for us to block certain type of usage on the data-only lines and there is no charge for doing so.

can you help me with this? I have a data only plan and I use it with my old iphone 6, i need to block all calls and sms to avoid extra charges. I found out about *33*pin# and tried with my SIM pin, but I get an error. 

Hey @cornelf1!


We can definitely help out Smiley

@michee there is no way for Fido to block it, the data only plans are meant to be used on tablets any other use would be at your own risk, just do not give out the number attached to the data plan and you shoudn't have to worry about calls. Incoming texts are free just the out going you will be charged.

Android comes with an app called hangout which has SMS integrated into it. So even tablets come with text as for calls I don't think it's an issue but it might be due to text being a problem.

I found this post which implies you can disable call/text
