Is this phone a smartphone? If so why is not under the smartphones tab?
If not can you please briefly explain?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This article may help in providing some insight on what could be considered as a smartphone and what isn't. keep in mind that even the cellphone industry has no standardized definition.
I have recently, (6 wks ago); upgraded or should I say downgraded to a Vivaz pro. I find this phone to be one of the worst I have ever used. It is not user friendly and I am going back to my other phone. a Sony 790g.
Thanks Paolo for your reply.
Well i was looking into all the info of Vivaz and has such things like GPS, WiFi, facebook. To be honest i do not have a smartphone and i was curious of this one. Since this is not smartphone does not come with a data plan, i can add it optional. But if i don't do it i will not be able to to use Facebook?
here is where i am confused. I think may a FIDO person can reply and tell me exactly.
Thanks for you reply, i understood but since you are not an employee, I would like to hear an employee point of view.
Some websites call the Vivaz smartphone.
Thank you again Paolo
well i have been searching on the net and almost everybody call vivaz a smartphone.
I think that is a low end smartphone with an OS that is not powerful as the BB, Iphone or Android.
My question is: is a smartphone or not? if not why not. So is this is consider a regular phone then you don't
have to get a data plan therefore is you use facebook you will charge everytime you use it.
Thank you for the great input.
You will need the Unlimited mobile browsing plan to use Facebook on this phone.
If you connect to WIFI the browser on the device will allow you to connect to facebook without a data plan. But that is only when you are in an area where WIFI is available. I suggest getting the unlimited mobile browsing plan.
I hope this help,

HI. hope you will not ignore me like in my threade.
but what about new/old(for the rest of the world) firmware where almost all the bugs theat people are talking here about are fixed?
thans in advance.
I don't have a data plan and I don't have unlimited browsing.
If there's wifi connection where I am, does it mean, I can go online for free?
If I can unlimited browsing, does it work some what like a data plan? I can watch videos on youtube?
If you surf / connect via wifi, you don't have to pay anything fido, so yes, free.
You can't watch youtube video with unlimited (wap) browsing. You'll need a proper data plan for that.
