Internet use without internet data in my plan

If I have internet data (3g) from bonuses or perks, but I don't have any data on my mobile plan, will I still be able to access internet on my phone?

Hello Victoria,

You are able to enjoy the beauty of our rewards program if you do not have a data plan.
The upgrades and perks can give you access to using your mobile data, however, as most of the members said, you won't be able to gift or receive any kind of data from a plan with data included as you won't actually have data from your plan but from your rewards/perks.
You can find a few more information about our rewards program if you follow Fizzy's post.

Cheers!
Nicolae Bogdan

Hi Victoria, no if you dont have data you wont be able to access on your phone unless you're on a wifi than you're fine. Good luck!

Hi Victoria, internet data and mobile data can't be shared. Worst case you can always buy a small mobile data add-on for the time remaining in your cycle.

Internet data and Mobile data are different. But if you want, there is plenty of fizz community who shares mobile data for free. That why Fizz is so great.

Hi Victoria,

The answer to your question is Yes.

Data Perks can be gifted or used by anyone. You do not need a data plan to use or receive Perks. However Perks cannot be earned, they are given out by Fizz (on a random basis) like the 500 MB Data Perk that we all received last week.

Regarding the Data Upgrades, as far as I know, you do not need a data plan to continue receiving these Upgrades which you have to earn by leveling up in your account.

Do note that you will need to have a data plan if you wish to participate in data gifting

Hi Fizzy and others :) Not sure I get my answer though. Some of you say: "You need to have a data plan to enjoy the bonuses", others "The answer to your question is Yes." Any help from Whizz? :)

You CANT share data with others or receive gifts from users if you dont have a data plan. But, you CAN enjoy the bonuses and the perks without a data plan.

Did anyone ever get a solid answer?
I very much need my data upon return to Canada but only have it in my perks and rollovers.

Hi all,

Yes even without a data plan, you can continue to use your rollover data, you will continue to receive data from your upgrades and your perks are a-okay to use/gift as well.

Victoria,
If you receive Fizz Perk and activate it (those data will be available for usage for 30 days), you'll be able to access to Internet on your phone.

I can say that YES if you use a Perk you will be able to use the Mobile data for internet / apps (like Google Maps) for with ever is the shorter... 30 days or the usage of MB in the perk (Usually 500MB)
I do not have a plan with data, but enjoy the perks and bonuses from being a part of this awesome community
