To Fido staff,
Has there been any advanced notice as to whether Fido will carry Blackberry's Classic or Passport phones?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Response from Fido ...
" Thank you for taking the time to write to us via www.fido.ca , my name is xxxxxx (omitted agent's name). For strategic reasons, our marketing department will only release information about new handsets at the very last minute. We can simply say that new models are being tested on an on-going basis and are launched once they meet our strict quality standards. For information regarding the latest handsets, we invite you to check back regularly on fido.ca/phones.
And there you have it.
I agree, I have been off contract for over a year waiting to see if Fido would get the Z30 and now the Passport. I bought my Z30 outright from shopBlackberry as I didn't want to wait and be disappointed. The Passport would be enough for me to go back on a contract, or use my fido dollars and pay the rest up front. We shall see. I am heading to the states next week and if there is no indication on Fido getting it, I will purchase it while there. Who knew it would be so hard to buy a Canadian product in Canada?
Shareplans???? Fido does not offer share plans. The only plans they have are the Standard, Smart, and Max Plans. Max plans are only for Iphones. Standard and Smart plans are for all other smartphones.
Does that $39 plan include 450 weekday minutes and 600MB data. If so I have the sameone and that is a Smart plan. But it sounds like you are on a standard plan, but check just in case. All devices other than the iPhones are avaialbe either through the standard plan or smart plan. Not sure on your situation why you would have to jump to a $60 value plan.
It a shame fido does not carry more bb product? I am also considering leaving fido after 17 years. the company was more flexiable when it was not owned by rogers. Fido is the little brother company. Wind is the new fido. I am giving them to the end of january/15 to see if they give us what we want. i hear the more we bug them for the passport the better chance we have have. so send them a note if your are really intrested.
Thanks for your support, but I highly doubt Fido will budge on the Passport. I think they were not too impressed with sales from the Z10 when they carried it. Nevertheless, I will send an email to Fido to have them bring the BB Passport to their lineup.
