    Data only plan? No voice?

    Is it possible to convert a plan to data-only?

    I currently have
    - 250 Wkday & Unlimited Eve/Wknd $25.00
    - 6GB SmartPhone Data Plan* $30.00
    - Android Value Pack w/Cdn Text* $16.79
    - Rogers To Rogers Calling $5.00
    - System Access Fee $6.95
    - 9-1-1 Emergency Access Fee $0.75

    Total is $88.39. I have $15 discount, but it expires in 2 weeks. So, I am back to $88+tax. Moreover, I am out of contract in 2 weeks. Thinking of making some changes...

    I think, I do not need voice minutes at all! Voip works just fine.
    Is it possible to get rid of voice minutes? Sms pack is also useless for me, so, get rid of it too?

    You can get a tablet plan and make it work on a smartphone but you can't get a phone on a contract with one or retention credits.

    Had a nice talk with Retention Department guy. There is absolutely no way to get rid of voice minutes on a regular phone plan (retention or not, no matter). So, it is impossible to move $30/6gb data addon to data-only plan.
    Well, at least I got rid of $6.95 system access fee for time being :-)

    Best you could do is $35 for 5gb without a voice plan like this http://www.fido.ca/web/content/monthly/ipad_plans
