    They're all scams. Either out of region plans or Corporate Plans that you're likely not entitled to.

    Those links are of the MB/SK Fido Plan. If your friend is looking for that price, look at the Koodo $55 MB/SK its a mirror image, and a bit easier to get.

    The plans are legit, but WHY would you want to pay EXTRA to get them???
    You could sign up all by yourself...

    Oh plus depending on person you should worry a tad about giving personal info
    Even internally it happens (one Bell rep was recently removed because he was accessing client accounts to sell his partners credit info)

    Do it by yourself is much better idea
    It is sad I need to state the obvious but some people just don't get it. Any posts I make are my own OPINIONS and in no way represent the views of my employer

    Thanks for the answers. I would try it myself if I had any idea how, we're in Toronto not exactly sure how to obtain a MB/SK plan... do you just call in and ask for it?

    In my signature is the thread i started on how to get it. And here are the simple instructions for DIY:
    All you need to do is sign up for a local plan,
    go home sign on to Koodo self serve and change your number to an mb number.
    After your first billing cycle 2-7 days go online again, change plan to $55 -
    mb 5GB, port your number, you are done.
    Phones using: Honor Play 6GB 128GB,wife using LG G7 One, son using iPhone XR,daughter using iPhone XR, Youngest son using Xiaomi Redmi 5.

    Thanks for the reply. Question, will I lose my # if I use this method? and would this also work with Fido? They also have a $55 mb/sk plan

    If you are already with Fido then you will need to port out and back in, also with Fido you need someone to do it for you and your account will be flagged for being a non region account and no service will be given to you. What's more important is that in most places Koodo has better reception then Fido.

    There also are many threads about problems with Fido voicemail not working
    They apparently were also region specific

    I had a very similar plan, but with Telus. It was a Saskatchewan only plan, but some people in Ontario were allowed to get it as a loyalty offering. However, I think Telus no longer does that and so Fido probably won't either. I would definitely be cautious.
