iPhone X

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?... 

Accepted Solution

Re: iPhone X

Hey everyone!

 

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 Smiley

Re: iPhone X

So Im position 75 right now ...moved up 18 spots. 

 

Can someone confirm my questions below, please.

 

If I buy the iphone outright then I get to keep my existing plan right?

I can use my fido dollars to lower the price of the phone before buying outright right?

 

Does anyone know the shipping dates?

 

Thanks

Don’t hold your breath, I’ve been position 2 since registration day and have yet to move up the list or receive any updates.

 

The reason you moved up is because people in front of you cancelled their reservation.

Re: iPhone X

I wondered about that as well. I was told quite some time ago that my fido dollars had expired...

Re: iPhone X

FIDO Dollars is not active anymore.

 

I was told over the phone...even after the program ended I was still accumilating because I was locked in a contract. I stopped collecting FIDO Dollars when my contract ended which was last month.

Re: iPhone X

Hello,

 

  To clarify, April 6th, 2016 was the last date for earning Fido dollars. For most people, the last date to redeem their Fido dollars was July 6, 2016. However, to accomodate those who renewed services on April 6th, 2016, they were given until July 6, 2018 to redeem them (see here).

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Re: iPhone X

Does anyone know if Best Buy has the ability to charge the cost of the device to my Fido balance?

No, all upfront cost have to be paid upfront.
