Activation fees not being waved

I'm a participant level 1

So I've upgraded my phone about a month and a half ago. I was told to give Fido a call and have the activation fees waves no problem at all. That was the offer. I've just spent 1 hour on the phone negotiating with someone to why they should be waved while the extra charges keep adding up. The person refused to waive them since there is no "note" in my file saying so. There was never a talk of needing a note in order for those fees to be waved considering my whole family and I have been with Fido for 12 years !!!

I need this fixed ASAP please

Hey @Mickeybg Smiley


Thank you very much for your loyalty! It means a lot.


When you activate a new line or upgrade your phone in store or with a customer service specialist, the set-up fee does apply unless we have a specific promotion to have it waived.

This is why we require proof in order to apply it.


Did you get any sort of paperwork where the offer was mentioned? 

Otherwise, ordering online would be the only way the save the set-up fee. 


If you have more questions or would like us to look into your account details, don't hesitate to reach out via any of the methods listed here
