What's the point of Fido's talk for 10¢ when you pay $10.75 for absolutely nothing vs adding in a $10 or $20 credit for absolutely nothing but your credit rolls over?
I'm looking at this from the viewpoint of an occasional user and not a chatterbox that should be on CityFido.
I didn't do a cost analysis but I think that this plan is a waste of money especially when there are other better prepaid options available from other carriers.
Fido (monthly plan - personal/data): Novatel Wireless MC950D or Nokia CS-18
Rogers (pay as you go - Canadian prepaid): "Fido" LG Nexus-4
Rogers (monthly BIS data plan): Blackberry Q10
Red Pocket Mobile (US prepaid): Sony-Ericsson c510 or Sony-Ericsson w300i
T-Mobile (US prepaid): unlocked Fido iPhone 3GS 32GB or "Fido" Samsung Nexus-S

a relative of mine was looking at this plan. what do you mean $10.75 for nothing? do you mean this is $10.75+$0.1*minutes used? or is the $10.75 a prepaid topup? is VM/CID/CW included in this (i doubt it)?
Normally, $20 gets you 100 mins. at 20c/min. But at 10c/min., that essentially doubles your minutes to 200 mins. I figure that the normal $20/mo. + $10/mo. = $30/mo. carrying cost for 200 mins./mo. I think this option is good for those who would use up 200 mins./mo on average because normally 200 mins. would have cost you two refills of $20 each=$40.
Buy $20 voucher to get $10.75 plan, 10c/minute rate ....
Buy $20 voucher to get 20c/minute rate...
Works out to be... the same? I have to be missing something here.
