Fido / fraudulent services
I am very upset at Fido.
I've just been through a series of endless telephone calls and I am totally disgusted.
I feel I have been made a fool and trapped into charges I specifically tried to avoid.
Like many other Canadians, I was lusting after the iphone but found it too expensive and the internet package over priced.
A Fido agent called me asking about my customer's satifaction and I told him about how I felt about the new iphone packages.
He offered me a great deal on the phone by using my Fido dollars, getting me to agree to a 3 year contract, and signing up to a monthly plan.
Ok, great so far I said but what are monthly fees going to be? I was not interested in being caught paying higher charges and absolutely did not want the internet roaming package from Fido. I just wanted to be able to connect to a WIFI network. The Fido representative said this would be no problem. Just don't subscribe to the internet package and you won't be charged. Sounded like a great deal so I said yes and agreed to the 3 year contract.
But since having received my iphone, I have been battling and battling with the billing department at Fido.
1st, I could not understand why I was charged approximately 80$ more than promised for the purchase of the phone. After calling and complaining I was than given a credit of 17$ plus an additional 56$.
The second bill came through but the 56$ was not yet credited and there was an astronomical roaming internet charge on top of it...
I was then again promised the 56$ credit for the following month but the internet charges were not removed! ... Apparently I was supposed to know that my phone was connecting automatically to Fido's internet service and not to my home WIFI when at home. I was also supposed to know that I had to call Fido and make sure my phone was disconnected from their internet network, although I specifically requested NOT to have that connection.
Apparently, Once the phone was delivered and I had phone in hand. I was supposed to contact Fido and tell them again to block my internet service. I was never informed of this when I first ordered the phone and there wasn't any notice when I receive th phone either.
In my last conversation, one of the customer service agent actually informed me that Apple asks Fido not to inform its clients from the blocking possibility and conditions of the internet service. Why? This apparently disadventage Apple.
So what about disadventaging your customers Fido???? We are the ones who end up paying and stupidly have registered for 3 dawn years of dishonest services!!!
Fido does not want to credit me the internet connection done without my knowledge, dispite te fact I refused them from the moment I registered and ordered my iphone.
I am outraged by the whole sour deal here and feel taken for an idiot.
I can only tell you DO NOT REGISTER WITH FIDO IT IS A SCAM!!!
