I have fallen behind on my payements as a result of loss of employments back in November 2019.  My services has been suspended and yet I have been billed the monthly rates even though i couldnt use mobile even though i am not on contract.   I have been with Fido sinve 2008 or 2009.


I have started a new position on April 27 and I have my account reinstated.   Is there a way I can get a credit for the months I was billed after the supension 


Thanking you in advance 





Hello @Geebskii,


Welcome to the community!


Congratulations on your new employment position.


Unfortunately, even though your account was suspended for non-payment your monthly service will continue to be billed.

I dont think that fair considering i am not on a contract nor able to use able to use the mobile while still paying $50+ a month.  Thats almost $200+ for nothing  

Hello again @Geebskii,


I totally understand where you are coming from, unfortunately, these are the terms of service whether it is a contract or not we agree to when getting service. This is common practice across all service provider, not just Fido.

I have contact the credit department and I was able to get a relief and restore my services 


i do know the terms.   Please remember I have been a Fido for more than 10 years. I was hoping to get some options.  Why weren’t you able to offer me something like your associate in the credit department 


Anyway I had to make a few calls around and finally I was able to find someone who understood my situation and made me feel like a valued customer 


Thank you for your time
