Unadvertised $45 Fido Plan with 1GB Data Adds Voicemail, International Texts Like Koodo


Koodo Mobile kickstarted the $45 BYOD promo plan with 1GB data and unlimited Canada-wide calling and SMS/MMS. Virgin Mobile and Fido followed suit as expected but these plans aren’t exactly the same. Fido’s offer doesn’t include voicemail (you have pay $5 for it) or international text messages, but Koodo does.

According to RedFlagDeals, it is possible to get the same plan from Fido but have it include Voicemail 3 and unlimited International text messages. Forum user Rudyyy says users need to call in and ask reps for plan ‘FPMMM014G’, which is summarized below via an email confirmation he received:

Fido unadvertised plan

Again, your mileage may vary but this plan was acquired by calling into Fido’s regular customer service line. As carriers prepare for the ‘double cohort’ to be freed on June 3, 2015, it looks like they may be offering a few extra incentives to sign up customers. Let us know if you’re successful in getting this plan.

    Anyone know if this means it has Visual Voicemail?

    Almost certainly not. That’s a $5 or $7 extra/bundle, they’d never include it in such a cheap plan not specifically aimed at iPhone users.

    Just spoke to a Fido rep, this FPMMM014G plan isn’t a Pulse plan, so I was able to switch to it, but I’d sacrifice the premium Spotify perk. I’ve decided to keep the BYOD $45 promo that included 1GB data, unlimited Canada calling and Spotify (no voicemail though). I guess each person will have to decide what’s more important to them. Hopefully better deals are around the corner.
