Suspend My Service

How can I suspend my service from overseas and how much will it cost?

Hey @Abeer1

 

Welcome to the community! 🙌🙂  

 

If you don't have an agreement and have been active with Fido for a minimum of 1 month, you're definitely eligible for a temporary suspension.

 

There are a few points I'd like to share with you.

 

We'll charge $7 for each month. Unless you're set up on pre-authorized payments, this would need to be paid before we can add the suspension to your account.

 

Also, you won't be able to use your phone to:
Place or receive calls including to our 611 & toll-free numbers
Send or receive text messages
Receive voicemail messages
Use data
Emergency calls will still work, but T9-1-1 will be disabled as it uses text messages.

The temporary suspension can only be added for the next billing cycle. Also, you have to call back if you need the service to be restored before the end date of the suspension.

 

With that said, I just sent you a private message. See you there.

Re: Suspend My Service

I am currently travelling back home to the north, where there isn’t any service, can I suspend my line until I get back to a place with service?

Hey @AlexJr,

 

If you don't have an agreement as mentioned in the solution above, it is possible to suspend your line for $7/mo. To make the change, we would need to access your account. For this and any other account specific questions, you can contact us here or we can send you a PM on the Community.

 

Let us know what's best for you.
