Here’s everything you need to know if you’ve just changed your phone number:
Once your phone number is changed, you can’t go back to your previous number.
There is a $35 charge for a phone number change within the same local calling area. There are a few exceptions for which this charge won’t apply:
Changes made online via self-serve on Fido.ca or in a Fido store (the charge will be waived automatically within 2 business days)
Changes initiated by Fido
If you move and change to a phone number in a different local calling area
If you have voicemail:
You’ll lose all of your messages, your greeting message, voice signature and your PIN will be reset
You will need to set up your voicemail as new
Turn your phone off and back on for it to reset
If the change is made during your billing cycle:
Your monthly plan charges might be prorated
You will still be able to track your usage in the My Account app, on Fido.ca and through our IVR, however, you won’t receive data usage notifications for the rest of the current bill cycle.
If you’re registered to My Account on Fido.ca with a phone number or Group ID username:
You won’t be able to access your account on fido.ca anymore. You’ll simply need to go to Fido.ca and create a new My Account profile using an email address. If you’re registered to the Community, you’ll need to re-register as well. Worry not though! We can get your old profile back. Click here to send me a PM with both your old and new usernames and I’ll take care of it!
Facebook login: The link between your My Account profile and Facebook profile will need to be re-created once you’ve migrated to email login.
If you have the T9-1-1 service, it will take up to 48 hours before you can use it again.
Hopefully this answered your questions! Don’t forget to tell your friends/family that you changed your number
