Notice all the cool new features in the My Account app? If you haven’t, that may be because you haven’t downloaded the newest version yet.
What’s so new about the app? Most importantly, you now get 5 extra hours of data. Free. Awesome right? That’s 1 hour, 5 times a month, with all Fido PulseTM plans.
On top of that, you’ll find new functionalities, such as:
Of course, these are in addition to all the other existing features:
With all these useful features, one wonders what we’ll add next!

wow a new app just in time for me to regester with fido
Love the new app Fido, clean and displays exact what I want to know about my account. Great job!!
I would like to suggest one minor tweak to the Fido App. The "usage wheel" for data/voice/text displays your usage counter-clockwise where if you log into My Account on Fido.ca, it displays your usage clockwise. I definitely find clockwise way easier to view. Also, the new app highlights your usage in white which is confusing to the eye. Please update the app to replicate Fido.ca's usage wheel.
Fido.ca vs Fido App for iOS
@Jakethecanadien Welcome to Fido! Hope you like our new app.
@nick67 Glad that you're loving the app! I'll definitely forward your feedback to the right team.
@nick67 The android verson is also the same as your iphone verson. Would of never noticed to be honest, but now it bugs me like a sore thumb.@FidoMaria I hope prepayed customers can take advantage of this application. The Base apk of the fido my app is installed on every android phone fido sold. I just hope my pals on prepayed can take advantage of it. Pre-Payed has to looked at just as much as post payed.
At the moment the app is available to postpaid customers. but we'll definitely pass along your feedback @Jakethecanadien!
The new fido app is not compatiable with the Alcatel 7's what are u planning to do to fix the problem? Mass recall?
Welcome to the community!
Could you give us more details about the problem you're experiencing?
Hey @bettyfrn ,
Whats making you say that? Any features we can help with?
there is no updates for the Fido App for my Blackberry?
The new app doesn't work on my Fido LG G Pad 3 tablet, it just brings me to the webpage in Chrome. "Requires Android 4.2 and up" and I'm on Android 7.
Which BlackBerry are you using now?
FidoKenny - i'm using the BB Z10.
@Jimboat Thank you for confirming.
I can see that it's available for Blackberry Z10 or BlackBerry Q10 (app for Blackberry 10 devices only)
So you should be good to go.
So right now you don't have the latest version of the app?
fidokenny - i have version 126.96.36.1999
is this most current?
I get it.
I checked on my end and the data bytes feature works with smartphones with the:
And it doesn't work with Smartphones with a BlackBerry or Windows OS
If there's any change in the future, we will update this blog
The app doesn't work with:
For now, you can access your Fido account through your browser
Is the new app available for BB10 or not? You both seem to disagree on this subject. If it is available, how do I get it. Its not on BB World (only the old v188.8.131.529 is there) or on the Amazon App store which are the only app sources for BB10 users.
How can I take advantage of the extra data and new features, if at all, on my BB Z30?
At the moment, the new app is available to Android and iPhone users. You can still get the app on your Blackberry but it will be the older version of the app.
If anything changes, we'll definitely update Fido.ca and the Community
Hope this helps!
I have a Blackberry Q10 (cue the jokes, I don't care, I like the keyboard). I also have a Google Nexus 2013 tablet. I cannot load the MyFido Account app to my tablet to take advantage of the 5 hours of free data in a month. I cannot access this feature in the My Account app/shortcut on my phone either. How do I access the free data?
