Fido - it's been a while since you carried Blackberry phones. Any chance this will change with the Blackberry Priv??
If you're choosing phones to carry based on platform popularity (iOS/Android vs BB10/WP) then we can finally expect you to start supporting the Canadian phone maker again, right?
Blackberry Priv runs Android. Doesn't make sense to not sell this Blackberry model.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi, as a huge BlackBerry fan, I will go out on a limb and say that I doubt very much that Fido will be carrying the Priv. It is a flagship device and has a hefty price tag, so only main carriers seem to be carrying it. Fido hasn't carried a BlackBerry since the Q5 and that is over a year ago, maybe 2 since they stopped. Having said that, I usually buy my device outright, I have a Passport SE (I was gifted). I know that isn't in the cards for everyone to be able to buy a phone outright, but, there are less expensive avenues to source gently used or refurbished devices. If you have a great plan with Fido that you don't want to change, you may want to investigate purchases of your device of choice and stay with Fido. Just my 4 cents worth.
If you're a HUGE BLACKBERRY fan like myself, call Fido customer service. I was told they have Blackberry Classics available. I would be soooooo happy if they carried the Priv. If not the Priv, even the Leap would be awesome!! Please bring back more Blackberrys!!
As @blackrabbit mentioned, we do have the Blackberry Classic available via customer service. You won't be able to get the phone in store however, so be careful on that.
Hope we can get an awnser soon about if Fido will carry the BlackBerry Priv, been with fido for many years and now i am contrac free so Fido's silence on the question is making it easy for me to move on with Bell.
Are we going to see the Blackberry Priv with Fido?
I see the mods can't comment on unannounced phones. I also want to buy the Priv phone. Hopefully the mods can send this feedback up the pipeline so that the decision-makers know there's demand for this device.
I would also like to request that Fido carry the Blackberry Priv. I see no reason why this is not possible as Fido is already carrying other Android phones.
Fido, is there an update on this at this time?
