@tommygun Does your current plan include Canada, or provincial, wide calling?
Where is your Fongo number located?
You cannot call forward a Public Mobile number without a calling plan.
We probably have some idea for you on minimizing your costs if you provide a little more detail:
- how much data/month do you need?
- do you want picture messaging or just plain SMS texting?
- do you have an unlocked phone?
OK. Your first constraint is the phone. As you bought the phone from Koodo it will ONLY work on Telus, Koodo, and Public Mobile. You must get it unlocked for $50 if you want to use a different carrier. Here's how: http://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Knowledge-Base/Unlocking-Your-Phone/ta-p/5237
More than 2 GB/month of data is not a good spot for Public Mobile. With data only their best offer is $84 (less $6 if you use autopay) for 6 GB over 90 days. With a data only plan you could use Fongo for everything else as outlined here: http://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Plans-Add-Ons/How-to-replace-the-old-90-day-90-plan/m-.... If you have wifi at home just use it for Fongo calling and texting to save on cellular data. Unlike provincial calling plans, Public Mobile data plans work everywhere in Canada. A friend of mine uses his iPad this way.
If you do get your phone unlocked, Fido currently has a data only plan (for tablets) of 3 GB for $15.
