No Windows Phone 8?? I'm leaving Fido ...

This is ridiculous, I've been waiting for a Windows Phone since WP7 came out, and Fido has completely ignored the platform. I'm sick of my garbage 3GS, and i hate Android. I now have no other choice but to leave Fido. I can't believe they didn't even bother to get at least one phone. Every other carrier has a Windows Phone.

I am surprised by lack of Nokia phone (or Windows 8 ) phones as well. I settled for a Samsung GS3, but if Fido has a Nokia 620 I would be hard pressed to choose between the two. The Nokia has the best free offline GPS software.

Yeah I doubt Windows Phone is happening on Fido any time soon. And when they, do they might just as well end up overcharging for it.

I would recommend checking online for offers on Windows phones.

Here are some prices I found online for brand new factory unlcoked phones. Remember manufactures sell phones unlocked in many other countries.

 

Nokia Lumia 620 - $250

Nokia Lumia 720 - $350

Nokia Lumia 820 - $350

Nokia Lumia 920 - $450+

 

The HTC and Samsung phones seem a little overpriced. Also the 720 and 920 have that cool touch screen that works with gloves on. Who can beat that Tongue

 

I would recommend just buying them outright. They are excellent devices and you even have the option of moving to any provider of your choice. If you call Telus/Bell and tell them to beat Fido's Smart plans, I know Bell has done that by $1 Tongue

 

Why buy an S4 for $450 with 2 year contract when you get a Lumia 920 for the same Tongue

Don't get ripped off  - do your research !
