I was told by customer service that Fido does not plan on carrying the iPhone x because internal research shows that there wouldn't be enough demand. This is a joke right?...
Solved! Go to Solution.
It’s official: There will be an opportunity for Fido customers to reserve iPhone X for in-store pick-up starting on Nov. 1. Fido customers will be able to reserve iPhone X through our reservation system and pick their device up in-store when it is ready for collection.
Customers can also purchase the device from one of our partners like Best Buy or Apple.
Our customers expressed strong interest in the device and we’re delighted to now be carrying it
So has anyone that ordered through fido actually received their X yet? I've moved up a couple of positions, but I suspect that is likely due to people ahead of me cancelling.
Status still "OPEN" I am line 2 for Silver 256.
I highly doubt you guys will recive your iphone X soon, best guess is the 4th week of november. I haven’t cancelled my preorder either (Staying hopeful like u guys) but in my experience when i preordered the 6s it was shipped to the fido store a day or two before launch.
I’d call asap to find out b4 it’s too late if i were you, but as i stated previously i was notified via text msg from fido. Best buy will have access to this deal as long as it’s on YOUR own fido account. i suggest u bring it up before activation just incase it slips by them 🙂
Tried getting the phone through Apple reservation system at the store. The had the phone out and everything, wanted 799 up front for the 64GB version as opposed to tagging the cost on to the next bill?! This is not what two Fido reps told me. It's completely misleading.
Guess I'll be putting up my 7+ up on Craigslist sooner rather than later.
So my 2-year contract expired at the end of September and I had been holding off on renewing until the release of the iPhone X. I have been a Fido customer for the past 16/17 years; however, the news about Fido not carrying the iPhone X made me start looking at other mobile companies. Luckily Fido listened to their customer demands and is now carrying the iPhone X; however, when I look at the available plans I'm quite disappointed at what's available.
I am currently in on a $67/month max plan from a few years back. Unlimited anytime calling within Canada, unlimited local and international texting, 2 gb data.
I called in the other day to discuss my options and was told that if I elected to keep my current plan that my iPhone X 256gig would cost me $1529. So basically I can renew my current contract and pay full price for my phone. Doesn't sound all that attractive when I could just go with one of the Bring Your Own Phone plans (and save money on the $67 I pay). The other option was to jack up my phone bill to $100/month for the same services that I have, but an extra 4 gigs of data. The data is nice, but I don't necessarily need 6 gigs of data per month (I get by with 2, though wouldn't be opposed paying a bit extra for 3 or even 4).
Running the numbers really didn't make much sense, and in comparison to some competitors doesn't really entice me to want to stay around. I would of course prefer to continue with Fido, but based on the numbers it might be the right time to move on.
Thanks for your response. If someone could PM me that would be appreciated.
Like I mentioned, I called a customer service rep and all she was able to do was re-read to me the options that I saw for myself online, so I'm hopeful that there is someone who can help me with a plan that actually makes sense.
Have a nice day
