I got my iPhone from Fido without data plan. The fido store staff told me that he will disable my data so that I won’t be charged. SUCH A LIE!! Although my 3G was disable, EDGE network connection wasn’t. Therefore, I was able to connect to the internet even when wi-fi was not available.
Today, I called Fido customer service. CSR helped me COMPLETELY DISABLE all network connection (i.e. 3G and EDGE). The only downside of this was that it also disable Visual Voice Mail. I was told Visual Voice Mail will not work unless I have 3G or EDGE capability. I cancelled my $15 iPhone value pack, and switched over to a $11 value plan which includes normal voicemail. Too bad I can’t use voicemail, but it doesn’t make any sense if I get charged per kb for even just checking voicemail.
I was told by the CSR that i will be credited whatever the data fee that’s been incurred as it was not my fault. I was served by a very helpful staff
Good luck everyone!
