Back in 2012, Fongo called itself the “fastest growing mobile company” in Canada, announcing at the time it was on pace to surpass 1 million subscribers. The company also made a public bid for WIND Mobile in 2013, which generated headlines. Fongo’s revenue model is ad-supported along with in-app purchases for various extras, such as International calling.

    I use Fongo as my main phone. I have the Fido Data only plan on my iphone, and use Fongo for calling and texting. Works great!. now my monthly bill is $35 a month and I get 5gb a month.

    I check occasionally to see if they have numbers outside of the lower mainland in BC. They never do so it’s useless to those who don’t live there.

    Me too. Also the best setup for international travel. As long as you have wifi or cellular data it’s like you never left, get all your calls to your main Canadian number. Straightalk wireless in the U.S. has tablet plans that work. I think it was $20 for 2gb. I’ll never go back.

    I would like to hear more of Data only iPhone users, as I am am interested in whats the benefits and disadvantages are.

  • bartek

    Its cheaper, and you don’t have to pay for all the features if you use fongo (calling minutes, Voicemail, call display etc).

    If you travel, just pop in a sim card from another provider that has data, and you will still receive texts and calls from your main number

    there are more, but those are the top ones.
