Does the current coverage area on www.fido.ca work for you?
so here's a question: are there any pro's/con's -- specifically, reasons *NOT* to switch, when looking at the brand new city fido plan compared to the original legacy city fido plan?
i have the $40 city fido plan, $30 - 6 gig data, $5 - $8 fidopro currently.
is there any reason for me not to switch to the new city fido plan as soon as i can find the "611" button on my phone? =)
Yea I'd like to know too.
Like WorldIRC said, check your coverage map in your profile and then check the new City Fido Coverage Map.
If you can handle the smaller Zone, go for it...
$35.00 for the Setup Fee...
It's been widely discussed in the other threads too.
Come on... read a lil bit.
Compare maps, essentially smaller incoming calls zone, and if you use the phone outside the (smaller) zone, you get hit with roaming charges.
You lose some features such as call fowarding.
These are some cons, the only pro I see is the cheaper price. In your case (OP) 5$ less per month. You already have the unlimited SMS with FidoPro....
Oh, shut up.
Just shut up!
I can't beleive you don't shut up!!!
I switched all 3 of my old lines to these new ones. Along with some add-on changes, I was able to redule my monthly bill by $42! Sweet.
Older city fido plans include a much larger city zone area where you can use your minutes without having to pay out of zone fees. they also include the LDENT soc that provides free incoming long distance when you are within the city zone.
Example: 2004 city fido Vancouver plan extends further east than aldergrove. It includes chilliwack and as far east as hope
