Hey @gdhesi and welcome to the Community.


Sorry to hear about your sim card. You were not lucky on that situation.


You can definitely order a new sim card through Fido.ca or with customer service and have it shipped to your billing address.


To do so through customer service, you can reach out through our channels found here.

 

Another simple way to get a new sim card is by visiting one of our stores to pick one up. To find a store near you, you can use our locator here.

 

Hope this helps.

Hey @Jessik_liliana,

 

I'm really sad to learn that you lost your phone, it's never a pleasant situation Sad

 

As much as we'd love to, it's not possible to ship the package to an international address, we can only ship it within Canada. 

 

You friend could pick up the SIM card for you and activate it in store, you would just need to add them as an Authorized Contact Level 1 on your account first. You can do that by contacting us through one of these channels.

 

The SIM card is $10+tax and no other charges apply. 

 

If not already done, I would also suggest adding restrictions to your line until you get the new SIM card to make sure no one uses the services. Check out this article on our Community that explains the steps you need to take to block it. 

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Lost my sim card

Hi,

 

While I was abroad I had my phone stolen. I was able to get a used device from my friend which I am continuing to use.

 

How would I go about getting a new sim card without buying a whole new device? I cannot go into the store right now because i am in quarantinenor do i have access to calling (no sim card). I really need this sim card as I am currently applying to jobs and need to be reachable.

 

Thanks.

Hey @AnnaStephenson!

 

You don't need to purchase a new device to get a new SIM card. You can contact us and we will order a new SIM card for you since you can't go to a store due to the pandemic. We can also send you a PM from here. 

 

Let us know what you prefer!
