@ whipcream, I tried the APN settings that you referred to, still no luck
I'm running out of options here, wifi works fine.
$50 Unlimited local calling + Unlimited LD US/CAN + Unlimited TXT US/CAN - (NO ZONE)
$10 Value pack
$30 BB 6 GIG Data Plan
And after creating the apn setting make sure to select it and enable it.

I'm not telling you anything that you can't just google for yourself
Make sure that there are no other APN's in the APN list. I've seen older handsets get confused and not pick the one for the current carrier. If there are other APN's listed, delete them. This removes all ambiguity.
Fido uses 850/1900 frequency for their 3G network. Your phone has HSDPA 900 / 2100. You will only be able to get 2G speeds on your phone. So you will need to turn off the 3G speed, and then connect.
if frequency is proper and apn is proper try resend to switch
call fido from a different phone
target phone battery out or flight mode if internal battery
ask for tech support or someone who knows how to troubleshoot data
ask them to resend to switch
they will tell you to go ahead and put the battery back in and power up
then your data should be working.
After 3 calls to Fido, data is now working. They said there was a data block on my account and they unblocked it and now data is working.
Thanks for all the help.
@ Bad Liar - were on the phone with me when the Fido rep said to renew a 3 year data contract in order to have data working on the Samsung, how can you guarantee something that you weren't apart of.
