I temporarily extension on my number

Hello Dilshadali,


  Welcome to the community!


  Apologies, but I'm not sure I understand your post. Are you requesting to extend a temporary suspension or stating that you have?


  If it is the former, you might be able to extend your temporary suspension via your My Account --> View Usage & Manage. From your Dashboard, the option to Manage temporary suspension is near the bottom of the page, under Quick Actions. 


  That said, I'm not sure if you'll be able to extend a temporary suspension beyond the period you have already suspended.


  You should note this forum is community-driven and not intended as a venue for customer services. We would not have access to customer accounts. If you wish assistance with extending your temporary suspension, you would need to contact customer service to have it extended. They can also be contacted via Live Chat, Facebook, or Twitter. Those methods can be accessed via the contact page posted above.


Hope this helps 😀

I would like to extend my suspension period as well. Because of COVID, I won't be in Canada as planned. Originally I suspended my number for a 4 months period,  now I need to extend for 4 more months, which adds up to 8 months. Could you please help me?

Hi there @mf_4


Thanks for reaching out to the Fido Community Smiley We're always happy to help out!


As for the "Temporary Suspension" for 2 months, are you registered to the $7/month suspension?


I'd just like to clarify what kind of suspension you have first Smiley Thanks!

Yes it's the $7/month suspension
It should ends on 24th of March and I want to extend it to 24th of April

I see! To clarify: It is not possible to extend the $7 suspension. 


Once the suspension is set-up & has begun, it cannot be modified afterwards. 


Here's a few more important points to know about this suspension program: 


- This suspension is offered once every 12 months for 2-4 consecutive months. -


- If you need the service to be restored before the end date, you can contact us by phone, chat, or email.


Let me know if this answers your question Smiley

Great news everyone!


We can still suspend numbers that are not on an agreement for $7 a month, once every 12 months, for up to 12 months! What's changed though is that a  temporary suspension can be extended as long as the request doesn't total over 12 months!


For example, if you're on a 3-month suspension you can only extend by up to 9 months.


Hope that helps!
