I want to know whether Fido will carry BlackBerry Passport, too. So I can do an upgrade. If Fido doesn't carry, I think I need to switch to other carrier that has it.

Fido hasn't shown a penchant for carrying BBs top devices ( an oxymoron for sure) in a couple of years. I doubt these new devices change that stance.

Definitely a +1 for the blackberry passport. I really hope fido is going to carry it otherwise I might have to switch to another provider.

I too may consider switching to another provider if Fido does not carry the BB Passport. I won't go back to Applie. I don't like the Android or Windows phones.

I won't go back to Apple either. Everyone who has tried BB10 devices (the best mobile OS) won't go back to iOS or Android, for sure. Passport has the best spec and all features that professional customers wish for. Hopefully, Fido should bring it in. Canadian mobile OS has better technology than those Americans' (i.e. iOS, Android and WP). As a Canadian carrier, Fido shouldn't make Canadians lag behind technology, cheering for those Americans' things.
