Is there a fee for adding a line?
If you add a line in-store or by calling into customer service, a $50 Setup Service Fee will be charged.
If you add a line online through My Account, the $50 Setup Service Fee is automatically waived.
What if I change my mind and no longer want the line I just added?
If you bought a new device at a Fido retail store, count 15 calendar days from that date; that’s how long you have to cancel your purchase without any cancellation fees. If you added your new line in-store, please return to that same location within 15 calendar days so that the staff there can help you cancel it.
If you bought a new device from Fido.ca or the Fido call centre (including Express Pickup), count 30 days from the date that the order was shipped in order to get a full refund.
How long does it take for my phone or tablet to arrive?
Your new device typically takes 2-5 business days to arrive.
When can I start using my phone?
Bought your new phone in-store or at a kiosk?
If you bought your phone from a Fido store or kiosk, just insert your old SIM card into your new phone, and it’s ready to use.
Note: If your old SIM card is not compatible with your new phone, you’ll need to get a new SIM card. This new SIM card will be provided to you in-store. Your contacts’ information must be saved on your SIM card to access them in your new phone. Refer to your old phone’s user guide (available on the manufacturer’s website) to learn how to transfer the contents of your current phone to your SIM card.
Bought your new phone online?
If you bought your phone on Fido.ca, you will receive a new SIM card with your new device in the mail. Just insert the new SIM card we sent into your phone and you’re good to go!
If your current SIM card is not compatible with your new device, you’ll need to update the SIM card associated with your device by logging in to My Account once you receive your new device.
Note: If you added your new line online and are bringing over a phone number from another provider, you’ll need to call customer service to transfer that number over to your Fido service.
