Hello Kapa3536,


  Welcome to the community!


  Sorry to hear of your situation.

   Itss unfortunate you might not have understood how post-paid plans operate. I understand that line wasn't ported to Fido, however, if you received a SIM card, that line was activated. You should note that the service start date occurs when you initially activated the line (when you opened the account), not when you first use the services (see Terms & Conditions; section 2b). The account was opened when you received the SIM card for that line. Once the line is active, you pay for the services whether you use them or not. You could activate a line and not put the SIM in a device for six months; you would still be responsible for paying for the six months of service.


  All activated lines would receive a phone number. If porting a different phone number, that line's number would be temporary. However, since no phone number was ported, it would remain the number provided. As you have already been told, if you did not wish to continue with that line, you would need to cancel that line.


  If you would like to further discuss the matter, you would need to contact customer service. In addition, 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 😀
