How to remove Data top-ups

I added 2 Data top up Add ons couple months ago and I see I'm still being charged for them and I cant figure out how to remove them off my plan. Ive gone to change my plan on the Fiso app and site and only lets me do changes to my actual plan, not the add ons. I'm being charged an extra $50 a month and don't want it. 

Now currently on hold with a wait time of 48 mins to hour and 13 mins with Fido, anyone know how to remove Add one?

Re: How to remove Data top-ups

Hello. I added a monthly data top-up in January, 2018 because some issues I needed it at that time. The Fido text said that I can cancel it anytime, but then when I want to cancel the top-up from Febrary, it has never been succeed. 

I tried several times by text or callling to customer sevice, the top-up is still on my bill and it still charges me this month......Is there any way to stop it directly? Thank you for help.

Re: How to remove Data top-ups

I have the same issue.  I added a monthly data top-up by mistatke in February, and each and every month since then, I have to call to have the charge taken off my bill.

I can't cancel by texting cancel to 222 because it says I do not have extra data to cancel.

I see it is still listed on my account as an extra, so I will have to call again when the June bill comes out.

VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!!!

Re: How to remove Data top-ups

I also have the same problem, I would like to cancel the top-ups but when I send cancel to 222 it shows 'your request didn't go through. We are not sure what happened.' And I cannot cancel the top-ups through fido.ca in my account. But it stills exists on my bill every month. What's wrong with that?

Re: How to remove Data top-ups

I am having the same issue. Texting CANCEL to 222 did not work. Nor did calling customer service. I used live chat and they told me the top-up is still on my account. I asked if they could remove the top-up as I now do not trust the text feature to cancel services. They said no! I am very upset with fido's services. FIDO FIX THIS!!

Hey @Jester33

 

Welcome to the Community!
 

I get your frustration, rest assured that you're at the right place for help Smiley

 

To request the cancellation of a data top-up, you indeed need to go through the 222. You will receive a confirmation that it was removed successfully, that is your proof that you have correctly submitted the request! 

 

In a situation were it is not removed by the system, we would need to open a ticket to have this investigated by our technical team.

 

I'll send you a PM to look at this more closely Smiley

Re: How to remove Data top-ups

Texting 222 did not work in my case. My billing cycle ends on the 5th of every month. I have a record of texting CANCEL to 222 on July 20th. We are now in Sept and the top-up is still being charged. I texted 222 again on August 11th and it said it was already removed. I called customer service and they told me they removed it. I no longer trust the text or customer service to remove it for me. Is calling customer service still my only option?
