I've been with Fido for many years. I currently have a great plan and I only have 1 month left on my device. I was thinking about upgrading my phone, however all the new plans don't make it worth the change.
I was wondering if it was possible for me to keep my plan after my contract expires in a pay as you go setting?
My second question is that I noticed that the S20 Plus is priced at $2000 on the Fido website, which is not true at all. I found the exact same device on for less elsewhere. I was wondering if Fido price matched the cost of the device or not when getting a new plan.
Hey @janammarthak! Philippe here. Welcome to the community.
Your existing plan may or may not be eligible for the financing of a new phone. The best way to find out would be to contact us directly. We can also check out all your options for a new phone while we're at it, to see if we can construct something that works for you. You can contact us here or request a PM from the community.
As for the price, they're normally much lower with financing, as this is usually how our clients acquire our phones. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G is $780 + $800.16 ($33.34 x 24 months) for a total of $1580.16 before tax with financing.
I hope this helps!
As you said, $780 down with 33.34 a month for 24 months with financing comes to $1580.16. However, if the phone was purchased outright elsewhere, it would be 1249+Tax as it says, so I don't see it coming out any cheaper with financing.
I would like to request a PM from the community so I can get clarification on the following two points:
1. Can I keep my plan after the 24 months are up (since it includes bonus data) without upgrading the phone?
2. Can I price match the "full price" of the phone as stated on the phones page on fido.ca with another provider?
My apologies! I should have specified that it was less then our listed full price, not the price you found elsewhere. I'll send you a PM shortly to go over all that with you.
