Welcome back Mihai!

Nice of you to offer it to people in this community!

Are you gifting Data Perks or mobile plan from your plan?

Remember you can gift data from your mobile plan, but (for now) the data perks can be gifted only to members who are already on your contact list (or they can used for your own mobile plan). We cannot gift Data Perks to new members because the add contact function has been disabled for our personal security.

Note that Fizz recently added the option to gift mobile data via referral code (in addition to the existing methods using phone number or email):

Hi Fizzy. I want to give Data Perks that I will not need in near future. I didn't know about this limitation.
I agree that some phone numbers shouldn't be visible to strangers (givers/receivers), but some like real friends or family, should be.
What can I do? I have no "friends" yet.

Mihai, sorry the only choice now is to use the perk for yourself (once the perk is activated, the data will be valid for 30 days) or wait until Fizz is able to fix the system to allow us to gift perks to new members again.

The perks that were given to everyone remain valid, but they must be used within 20 days (or they will expire).

Camille, sorry you should not be displaying referral codes here.

Referral codes are allowed here and only here: https://community.fizz.ca/questions/2198337-place-referral-codes or they must be sent by private message upon request.

In any case, Mihai cannot send data perks to you.

Yes you can gave to Camille, but Camille is not suppose to put a code in this post. Fizz dont like that...

BUT, you cannot gave perk since you dont have Camille or me in your contact list!

next time...

OK. So, I tried to give as "anonymous" but there is a system error.
Luc and Camille: My perks will be available for another 18 days. I use to forget, so, send me a PM WHEN and IF the system will be repaired. I'll be notify in my e-mail and I will return here to give you a 1Gb each. Keep the fingers crossed!

The post will remain open for another 2 Gb of data to give for who needed more. Remember that I can give you the data gift only after the system will be fixed. Till then you can send me PM with your needs/info.

Since we cannot gift Data Perks by referral code, this is becoming awkward now.

So you will ask people for their phone number or email now so that when and if the add-contact issue is fixed, you will be able to gift the Data Perks to them?

I'm not sure this is the correct approach and Whizz may not want to keep this post open for that long.

Fizzy,
I don't care about e-mail or phone number. You said that now we can use referral code, which is impersonal and perfectly confidential. Also they can wait to "when and if" this service is available to write to me, or they can take the chance now and send me that info. I can't see any problem for that, I just only want to give a useful life to some data and also make happy some users. If Whizz do not approuve that, he must fix the issue faster, and as result the post will be kept open for a lot shorter/reasonable time for anyone and everybody will be "Happily Ever After"! This is not our fault (as users) that this and another 3 bugs that I reported today make our life difficult.

Here is what I found:
I manage to add in my list Luc and Camille, but ANY person from my list can't be granted with ANY of my gifts. I had some persons from long time there, When I select one person (ANY) a red error appear saying "_shortcode.SOURCE_PRODUCT_IS_NOT_FOUND".
[Possible because I have only perks to give, and all my other data is rolled over. Probably "source" may be monthly data, which is not to be found...]
EDIT:
And that is because I tried to gift data starting from My Plans / Gift Your Data.
The good way is to go to perks and activate/gave as gift the chosen perk, as I found in the end.

Finally, I was able to send the data perk to Luc and Camille.
Using the procedure discovered by Luc here : https://community.fizz.ca/questions/2601826-want-solution-send-perk-despite-bug-adding-contacts I added them to my contacts.
Next, I go to the perk to be gifted, click and select Gift, select "contact" and that's all. The Gift was sent.
