Dispute charges for never used a plan

I'm a participant level 1

In 2019 I fell for a dumb promotion where I got a tablet "for free" and 2 years of free data on for that new tablet number. I gave the tablet to someone else, and never used the data on that number. Obviously forgot about it and the free 2-years of data expired in 2021. I just realized TODAT that I've been paying 15 months monthly since then.

I NEVER used that data. Is there any way I can dispute those charges? And perhaps get at least some percentage of that back?

This is definitely my fault for not realizing before, but since I never used it, is there any way I can maybe get some of that back?



Hello @hkavassaki,


Any monthly or post-paid accounts will be billed regardless if you use the service or not.

I am being charged for the service which I never subscribed and FIDO has billed me for the last couple of months for that.

The bill is showing Prem Device Protection Plan.

For these kind of over billing I have migrated to other carriers for my 2 lines and now planning to switch the last one as well.


Tried calling Customer Care and as usual didn't get any answer after a long hold.


Can you please help in sorting out this issue.
