Fido $25 Promo: Unlimited Texting, Long Distance, 5PM Evenings, 150 Minutes, CID/VM

Some people out there are using unlocked iPhones with voice plans only, forgoing data plans and relying on Wi-Fi instead. If that’s you then this new $25 Fido promo plan might fit your needs for a decent voice plan. Here’s what’s included:

  • Unlimited local and international SMS/MMS
  • 150 daytime minutes
  • 5PM evenings and weekends
  • Unlimited Canada-wide long distance (within your allotted minutes of course)
  • Caller ID and mini voicemail (up to 3 messages of 3 minutes each, saved up to 3 days)
  • $25/month; first month is free
  • monthly or 2 year terms available; expires December 31st

$25 fido plan

If you throw in the $10 add on for anytime unlimited Canada-wide calling (no zone restrictions), then this would make a decent voice plan for $35. Of course, don’t forget Fido also has a $56 promo plan and also a $67 unadvertised  equivalent plan as well (eligible for three year terms).

Let us know if you’re going to jump on this!

    Any idea if the Canada wide is included in the evening and weekend minutes too? This is awesome if so

  • ICJ

    virginmobile has the same plan….not sure about 1st month free though

  • ICJ

    yes

  • Phil

    Why would you need to get the $10 addon if the plan already has unlimited LD?

  • JAm

    Can you get this and then add data?

  • This could be interesting for the wife 🙂

  • Kuldip Kainth

    This seems pretty awesome for my mom. I was gonna give her my old 4S and she doesn’t want data. Wouldn’t mind more minutes though…
    Any comparable Koodo or Virgin plans?

    What’s “Mini Voicemail and Call Display”?

  • Jon

    Cause having LD means you still need to make the call from within your zone. The add-on, as written, has no restrictions.

    READ THE ARTICLE.

  • Jon

    Like ALL PLANS, yes.

  • gtasscarlo

    It has Canada wide LD included, there are no need to add on any LD pack….

  • gtasscarlo

    Few things to know, the first month free is on a two year and the $35 activation fee(waived on a 2-3 year term) If your planning to go month to month.

    So the best course is to get the $50 subsidy off the zte phone, you get the waived first month and free activation credit. This is a $60 savings, and when your ready to leave, you can pay off the balance on the phone. Which is less then what you saved.

    Can Atlantic customers still subscribe to fido? The reason I ask is I’m a rogers customer and know their network works for me… but there are no fido stores this side of Quebec. I’d drop rogers in a heart beat if I could save 30-40 dollars a month.

  • Ojamali

    To add to Jon’s response, the unlimited LD still uses your daytime 150 mins limit so if u call LD a lot during daytime then be prepared to pay the per min local call charges in excess of 150.

    A great plan nevertheless.

    I think mom is on a better retentions plan from Rogers though.

    300 daytime mins
    Unlimited incoming
    Evening/Weekends @ 6pm
    100 local TXT
    Call forward/call waiting
    Full CallerID and Voicemail with visual vm
    100 US and international txt msg
    Ringbacks
    Mobile Data TV

    $30.79 + tax/month.

    She is using it on her iPhone 4 with no data plan. She uses wifi.

    Thanks for the information. I was able to make the switch. I downgraded from the 57$ plan with 2GB Data to a less expensive plan. I mostly use my cell on evening and weekend. If I need data in a zone with no wifi, I still can pay 1$ for 24H.

    The Call Display in this package is number only. It will not display the name of the caller.

  • wahgee

    Switched my dad to this plan. 1.5 yr left on contract. Has $5 credit. $20 plus BC HST.

  • cUn1t

    Virgin has the same plan. Also has a $30 or $35 plan with more mins. It should be on the website.

  • dave

    Wind sucks – very bad coverage.
    For instance calls from Vancouver are fine if on an unlimimted plan. Montreal not.

  • Jim

    So even if the person who calls you is in your contact list, the name of the contact will not show up?

  • Mo

    Great workaround
    Thanks

  • Thwarth

    I just asked. The answer was no. You can’t add data
