    Regional $20 plan is gone?

    Arrghh Fido, you giveth then taketh!!!
    So nice to hear the 6GB for $30 plan, was planning to combine it with the $20 regional plan....

    Just went to their new *ahem*improved*ahem* site and couldn't find it...

    Is it really no longer offered?

    not sure what the regional pla was, but the $20 plan for 200 anytime mins is still there... at least in QC...
    17.50 ("killer plan": 200 mins by the second, unlimited E/W from 5pm) + 10 (retention VP: 2500 SMS, CD, VM) + 30 (data plan: 6GB with tethering) - 10 (data credit)
    = $47.50 + 911 + tax
    If you're selling a good plan on Telus, Bell, or Rogers, PM me.

    There is a regional package for Manitoba and Saskatchewan ( 200/unlim eve/we + f2f for 20$) but Ontario never had a specific plan such as the one you are explaining, not recently anyways...

    can you please point me to the right direction? I can't find it in their new website, the only $20 plan is the 200 anytime minutes only...

    I called Fido today about it, still available. 50 minutes, unlimited E/W starting at 7pm, $20 a month. If you go on a 3 year term, you get 100 minutes instead of 50.
    FIDO
    iPhone 3GS 16GB Black
    200 Anytime Minutes
    Unlimited E/W starting at 5pm
    6GB Data
    2500 SMS, 1000 MMS, Call Display, Visual Voicemail, Expanded Network, No SAF or 911, Per-second billing!

    $17.50 Voice + $30 Data + $15 smartphone pack - $10 credit = $52.50/month

    Thanks guys, I wasn't able to find it in the site. So I panicked

    Tell me if this is possible for the iPhone:

    $20 regional plan
    $11 vp (assume that the vm is not visual)
    $30 6GB
    ===
    $61 <-- $1 extra but you get cid and 50 more text messages oh and 6GB

    I'm hearing elsewhere in the forum that there are "limits to what you can do" with the Regional plan... anyone in the know care to enlighten?

    I hate how every rep says something different.

    I went to a Fido store today, spoke to the manager. He called Fido and the plan is to end Aug 5. What DOES end today is the promo to get your plan half price for the first three months, but the regional plan should still be available.

    I can confirm that the $20 regional plan is still in effect: I added it yesterday to my new iPhone, and the funny thing is I'm in Quebec! My guess is they're getting rid of it so that there's no way to build something similar to the iPhone plans... And with good reason: for $61 I have the exact same minutes, 6gb data, 50 more txts, normal VM, CID, and whocalled! Ouch!
