Is Bonus Data Permanent?

Hello Fido forum, I am considering switching my monthly plan to the current promotion $45 for 4GB (1+bonus 3). Is the bonus 3GB of data permanent as long as I keep the plan or does it expire? I have read the terms and conditions on the Fido.ca Plans section but find no mention of how the bonus data works. Kindly confirm whether this bonus is permanent or not? In addition, I am currently month-to-month with no active agreement. If I upgrade my device in the future with the Fido Payment Plan and opt to keep the $45 4GB plan, will my bonus data remain or will I be forced to pick an in-market plan at that time? This promotional plan is publically available so I will attach screenshot for further clarification. Thank you for your responses.

Hey @nick67,

 

The bonus will remain on your account for as long as you keep the price plan.

 

We offer this plan both as a BYOP option and a Fido Payment Program (FPP) plan. You would need to select the FPP option in order to be able to upgrade to a device in the future. You'd be able to keep the plan as is and proceed with the upgrade without losing data.

Thank you @FidoSaira for your response. I have one follow up question: What is the difference between picking the $45 4GB plan under BYOD tab versus the Data, Talk & Text tab? Are you saying if I chose the BOYD $45 4GB plan option, I would not be able to keep this plan under the Fido Payment Plan during a hardware upgrade? Moreover, if I change my plan to the Data, Talk & Text $45 4GB, would I be entering into a 2 year agreement automatically with no device? Thank you in advance for your clarifications Smiley

Anytime! 😊

 

Both plans offer the same features, but if you want to upgrade with a device you will need to choose the Fido Payment Program option. Our systems are set up this way.

 

That said, you can choose the financing plan without taking a phone. You will not be entering any agreement if you do not upgrade.
