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.

I am currently contract free with Fido. I'll wait to see what they decide to do. If they end up not carrying the Passport, I will have the option to leave for another carrier.

Forum moderators, if you have any input at all to the say on Fido's handset strategic plans, please tell your managers that there is a very real demand for the Blackberry Passport amongst Fido users. I myself will consider switching to alternatives if you will not provide the handset.

The Blackberry Passport is launching this Wed Sep 24..

Can anyone from Fido management confirm whether Fido will carry the Passport? Or at least have some sort of time frame as to when they will decide if they will carry it or not?

BB_USR604,

 

Do you know for sure that Telus will carry the Passport? I know that Rogers and Bell will, but not sure about Telus.
