Hey @MCB11,

 

The security deposit is held on your account for 12 months after the activation. On the first billing cycle after the 12-month period, the system determines the refund eligibility based on your account history.

 

If your account is eligible for a refund, the deposit will be released towards your account balance. If ever your account is not eligible, a re-evaluation is processed on a monthly basis until the deposit can be released.

 

The security deposit is also automatically released in the following scenarios:

  • The subscriber line linked to the deposit is deactivated.
  • An automated re-evaluation or new credit evaluation offers a $0 security deposit option, as long as the deposit has been held for minimum of 12 months

Hope this helps!

 

If you need more info on this, specifically based on your account, don't hesitate to contact us here.

Interesting we wait for 12 months then Fido decides we get the deposit back? The sales guy stated 6 months. A lie?

Hey @Ophone Smiley

 

Security deposits are refunded after a 12 month period, and under the conditions in the solution provided by @FidoClaudia, above in the thread.

 

If something else was explained to you during the activation of your line, you can always contact us and we'll be happy to go over everything!

security deposit rerurn

Hello,

 

I have paid 200$ last year as a security deposit for my phone plan and they said if every bill is paid on time, it'll be retuned in a year.

I wanted to know when will I get it back and whether I can choose to have it deposited into my bank account instead of credit for bill payment.

Thank you

It's also good to note that the refund is always done towards your Fido account balance.
