We can add a temporary suspension on your line at the beginning of a new cycle for a period of 2 to 12 months at a fee of $30/month if the lines has been active with us for a minimum of 1 month and if you are not currently under a contract.
You can contact us here so we can add this with you and you can contact us back the same way to reactive it

*** Update October 29, 2019 - Great news everyone, the temporary suspension is now $7/month!
Updated July 2019.
I have 3 lines in one account and i just called fido today to suspend one of my lines for atleast 3months but it is under a contract coz my daughter who is using that line was out of the country starting today. I was just confused because the representative whom i spoke today said it’s okay to suspend that line even if is in a cotract and it was in the middle of my billing cycle. So she did the suspension and i just got the confirmation via email but i would like to know if this is right because i don’t like to be charge for additiona fee or payment with this matter.
Can someone help me..thnx!
I will be living abroad for 12 months and am hoping to be able to suspend my account. I am under a contract and was wondering what the options are for suspending my account while I am away.
I have read that if I was not under a contract it costs $7 a month for 2-12 months, but I am curious what the options are since I am under a contract.
Welcome to the community.
I've moved your post to this thread for you. It will have all the answers you seek.
However, I can confirm that it's possible to get a temporary suspension only while not on a contract or agreement.
If you would like to discuss your options, you can contact us here or we can send you a PM, if you prefer.

I've moved your post to this thread, you'll be able to find the answer to your question here.
If you'd like us to send you a PM to add the suspension, let us know!
I have three fido phones, and one of phone is used by my wife.
She will go to abroad for a while.
If I remember correctly, I stopped my number for a month a couple of years ago. During the period, I didn't need to pay for it. Is it still possible? If it is, could you tell me how I can apply it? Last time, I did it at the store.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for the answer,
If my wife wants to stay longer after the first month, is it possible to extend some months more by online?
I heard that if I pay around 7 bucks, I could extend it. Is it true?
The temporary suspension is $7 a month and can be added if you don't have an agreement. Since it's only possible to add the suspension once every 12 months, I would suggest adding it for a longer period. If ever your wife comes back to the country before the suspension expires, she can simply contact us to remove it and she'll be able to access her services right away.
Does this help with your question?
I was thinking to use 1 month pausing line without any payment + couple months temporary suspending with 7 bucks for 4 to 11 months.
Is't it possible?
Thank you in advance.
