It was really wierd. I got a blank text message with no phone number a
couple of days ago, then got the voicemail (above) from Fido. Anyways
I did switch my Network Selection from Automatic to Rogers but have not
noticed any difference. I am in Toronto.

Anyone else?

Where are you ?

Since Fido is progressively shutting down its network, I take it that
such messages would be sent to certain subscribers in areas where the
shutdown is proceeding

But this brings a question:

If I do not pay the $5 fee to access expanded Rogers network, and I am
out of Fido coverage and notice there there is Rogers coverage where I
am, would there be a way for me to reach Fido's customer support to have
the $5.00 option added for that month ? or is the only option to find a
landline phone and call Fido's 888 number ?

I've been getting those calls from Fido, but I usually miss the call,
the only thing is, I dont have a Fido phone. I'm on telus, so I havent
figured out why they keep calling me. I told them I had never had a
Fido phone and they still call. They called twice today, and they have
basically called once every other day for the last 3 weeks or so.
