In my usage page for my phone bill (I am on a Plus plan, and currently abroad-roaming), there is a section titled "bundles messages." I googled, and nothing informative comes up. It is weird because I dont even send sms, only imessage, and mostly from my computer and always when I am on wifi. I've been avoiding getting roaming charges, but Fido has recently charged me with unverified roaming fees (that I am still trying to figure out what I am being charged for) and I am wondering whatever these "bundles messages" is the culprit. Can someone explain what these are? Thank you
Welcome to the community!
Just a thought... Is your phone capable of Wifi-calling? If it is, was Wifi-calling enabled? If you're abroad and using Wifi-calling, all outgoing messages and calls to a non-Canadian number will count the same way as they do on a mobile network and would incur a Fido Roam daily charge.
Taken from here.
Did you also incur a daily Fido Roam charge? I'm don't think the data roaming setting has any effect when using Wifi-calling outside of Canada.
I understand you only iMessage, however, might there have been any messages sent to non-iPhone users? If I'm not mistaken, those would automatically get converted to SMS.
Hope this helps
Thanks. I talked to customer service, they were unable to help. It is not data roaming. My roaming has been off since the beginning of my billing cycle.
