Trying to sign up for a mobile plan but getting 145$ monthly price and told area not eligible

Hello all,

I am currently trying to get a phone and mobile plan but encountering multiple issues.

I picked the 39$ monthly plan but it somehow shows up as 145$ in my final monthly total ?

Then, when I tried to confirm my Montreal address, I was told that it wasn't in the subscription Area ?

(I am, I checked the map).

And now the phone I picked (iPhone 14) is out of stock :(

I've been trying to subscribe all day without any success...

Help anyone?

A thousand thanks in advance ?

    I'm sorry to hear about the challenges you're facing while trying to subscribe to Fizz's services. It sounds quite frustrating, especially when multiple issues crop up at once. Let's address each of your concerns:

    1. Monthly Plan Showing Up as $145 Instead of $39:
      • This could be a system error or a misinterpretation of the pricing. The $39 plan should not total up to $145 monthly unless there are added costs or fees that aren't clear. Double-check the breakdown of the charges. Sometimes, initial costs might include the phone payment (if you're buying a phone on a payment plan) or other one-time fees.
    2. Address Not Recognized in the Subscription Area:
      • Even though you're in Montreal and within Fizz's coverage area, sometimes address verification systems make errors. It's worth double-checking that the address is entered correctly, with no typos or formatting issues.
      • If the address is correct and you're still facing issues, this is something that Fizz's customer service needs to address directly.
    3. iPhone 14 Out of Stock:
      • Unfortunately, the availability of specific phone models can fluctuate, especially for popular models like the iPhone 14.
      • You can check back regularly to see if the stock has been replenished, or consider setting up an alert if Fizz offers this option, so you're notified when the phone is back in stock.
    4. Subscription Difficulties:
      • For the issues with the plan pricing and address recognition, I would strongly recommend contacting Fizz's customer support directly. Explain the issues you're facing in detail. They are in the best position to resolve such anomalies.
      • If you have already tried reaching out to them via the usual channels and haven't had success, consider using social media platforms like Twitter or Facebook to contact them. Sometimes, reaching out via social media can expedite the response process.
    5. Documentation:
      • Keep a record of all your attempts to subscribe, including screenshots or detailed notes. This can be helpful if you need to explain the situation to customer service.

    It's understandable to feel disheartened after spending a whole day trying to resolve these issues. But reaching out to customer service with specific details of each problem is likely your best bet for a resolution. Hopefully, this will be sorted out soon, and you'll be able to complete your subscription successfully.
