Since this post I have contacted fido 3 more times. The last time, the customer service person blamed it all on the back office and system glitches. No one has resolved the problem yet and no one takes ownership for the problem. I posted on Facebook, I feel Fido could not care less. They don't seem to care about customers at all or their reputation.


Still waiting for someone to actually help with this.

Hello @hongshil , that sounds like a frustrating experience that you are having. It seems like you have had numerous interactions with various people with no resolution yet. Perhaps making contact with a Fido representative on social media like Twitter or Facebook could yield more information /results/ etc.  You would be able to copy the information you gave here and let the CSR read it over and track it down and respond, all without you having to wait on the phone. 

I don't think that any of the customer service reps want you to have a bad experience and will do their best to resolve this with you.
