I'm on the FIDO Prepaid 40 cent/minute plan. When I logged on to My Account page today to check my account balance, I noticed that under "My Plan" and "Features" it shows that my plan includes "unlimited outgoing text" (see screenshot below). I thought to myself that it was nice that FIDO has added this new feature to my plan, so I tried sending a few text to my friends thinking that they would be free. However it turns out the information on the "My Account" page is not true at all!! I was still charged 30 cent per SMS for the several SMS that I sent out after seeing the wrong info.
My wife is on the same prepaid plan as I and she is also seeing the same feature advitisement on her "My Account" page. She was actually going to start using this "free" outgoing text feature until I told her that it's not true and she should not use it. FIDO should remove this kind of false information/advertisment on the "My Account" page which misleads their customer into using and getting charged for the features that they actually don't have with their plan and!
