    Yep, it does restart for them. I do it all the time. Just remember you can only gift your monthly data, roll-over data cannot be gifted.

    The timer is kind of reset since it is now in your friend's timeline.

    Mind you

    • you cannot give data what you've been gifted (unless you received a data perk from Fizz). Also you cannot gift it to yourself and then give it to your friend.
    • your friend must have a data plan
    • your friend must be in your contacts

    As already mentioned, yes, the "timer" restart, but for your friend. The delay is 30 days if I'm right.

    If you are talking about expiration, it might be a gift? In that case, as @Idefizz said, only Fizz gift can be give, and you will have to do a tricky manipulation to gave it if your friend is not in your contact list. You will have to send him an invite email and it will work.

    Good Luck

    Not for perk. Perk expire date won't change.

    For gift, yes it will be changed the your friend current left billing days + 30 days.
