*WARNING* This procedure will reset your phone so please back up all your data before attempting this.
So you switched to Fido and want to use your Samsung phone you got from another carrier and you would like to get all the Fido apps and future updates from Fido and get rid of your old provider apps and branding.
Just follow these steps and you can convert your non-Fido Samsung phone to a Fido branded phone.
After it restarts your phone will now have all the FIDO apps and settings just like if you got it from FIDO.

Stumbled on to this post from 2016. Tried it. Did not work for my Samsung Note 9
Worked like a charm! very much appreciated!!
Will this work on non Samsung phones? In particular a Nexus 5?
I have an unlocked S6 that was on telus. Now I'm trying the code
#*272*imei# but nothing happens when i put the last #
if i press send, i get ussd code running, then Unknown application.
My IMEI ends with /28, do i have to put that number in also?
Found the problem, it is not #* but *# at the begining.
