Does the service not connect to a partner service during a FIZZ outage?

I'm just wondering why if FIZZ's network is down, do we not connect to a partner network? (Such as Videotron or Rogers) as though we are roaming? I just switched to Fizz this weekend and starting to think that this was not worthwhile if there are outages on a bi-weekly basis. Will have to hold off on switching my wife over too. What a waste buying sim cards.

    I am connected to Data Only Network with Vidéotron after fizz went down. Go to settings ,under network settings search for mobile networks if using an android, then tap to register to a network available.
  • My service is down in NL. Though previous to this it was great for the last week.
  • If you enable ROAMING it will.
  • Agree with the switch over to other cie. Wifi appl would be nice for those that have wifi
  • Different versions of down. We are currently connected to a dead network. Roaming would only kick in if we did not a network to connect to. Like when you travel and there is no Fizz Network it would connect to a partner. This is not the case since we are physically connected to Fizz still.
  • I've tried all other providers sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. It's as if the FIZZ sim cards are rejected from all networks.
  • Working fine on FIZZ Roaming. Also working Fine on Partner networks.

    That is a great question.
    It is like if their system is down, we cannot even roam.

    It's a digital world. Not only was network down, Sim cards were not working as well  =(


    Mobile is up again, but you most likely already know.
