here the guide, you can only gift perks since you do not have a data plan

https://fizz.ca/en/faq/what-is-data-gifting-and-how-does-it-work

 

You cannot gift:
  • An unlimited feature, such as text, minutes or minutes for international calls
  • Add-Ons
  • Gifted data (no re-gifting allowed!)
  • Data that has already been rolled over

You cannot transfer, only the data in your plan can be transfered not the bonus

Hello,

You cannot gift data to a fizz member without a data plan. He need to take a least 1 GB per month prior of accepting data gift.

The message you saw is a programming error. The program expected to find something, but it did not find it.

It is true that you can gift only your original plan data. You can also gift perks you have received.

 

More importantly, the recipient must have a data plan to receive your gift.

Except in the case of perks: If you receive mobile data as a perk, you can enjoy that perk even if your plan does not include data.
