Public service announcement re: HTC One M8

Being determined can pay off. I'd been hunting down the elusive HTC One M8 from Fido. Went to get one last week but couldn't locate any in the local Fido stores. A call to Fido proved fruitless too after they said they're on back order and they didn't know when they'd have any. I tried again today and called the local store. They didn't have any but the gentleman told me the daily shipment arrives between 3-4pm and they don't hold these phones. I went to the mall for 3 and struck pay dirt. Fido had two they'd just received. Easily transferred all my info off my M7 and enjoying the new M8 as a Xmas gift to me.

Don't take no for an answer. You can get one of these too just don't give up,

I ordered mine through chat service on Friday. Today, I got shipment notification email that my phone is being shipped. So, I might get the phone tomorrow or the day after.

Good luck I hope you get it quickly. Now to rag on Fido for not carrying the Nexus 6. I realize Rogers is their corporate master but can't anyone from Fido stand up and scream we need top tier devices? Not every Fido customer is a senior citizen looking for a cheap flip phone with oversized keys on it.

Yes I snagged an otter box for $19.99 at future shop today. Yes it's not the most stylish case but it works. My M7 in an otter box looked like new

I just got my m8 today. It took me only 2 business days to get it. I am impressed with Fido now.

The bad news is that I got a defective device which doesn't charge. They are going to exchange it btw
