Google Pixel 2

Just got announced today.

Does Fido know if it'll support VoLTE and WiFi calling on Fido yet?

It also uses eSIM. Wonder how that'll work with registration

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hey there @Kenjuta and @phanthomz!

 

Fido is happy to be carrying both the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL! They can both now be reserved on Fido.ca/Reserve Smiley Very Happy

 

The Pixel 2 will be launching on October 19th, and the XL will follow on the 15th of November. 

 

I should also add that the phones will use a Nano Sim card, no news on Wi-Fi calling or VoLTE but keep an eye out on Fido.ca for updates on those features Smiley Happy

Re: Google Pixel 2

I receieved this text message from Fido with this following message:

"Hi, it's Fido: Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL reservations are now on! Be among the first to pocket the Google phone everyone is talking about. Head over to fido.ca/Pixel2 to reserve yours! Make your reservation by Oct. 18 (for Pixel 2) or Nov. 14 (for Pixel 2 XL) and get a Google Home Mini on us (Wi-Fi speaker, value of $79.99). Sweet! Questions? fido.ca/contactus . Reply STOP to opt out of Fido text msgs."

 

I just made a reservation and have recieved a email confirmation. How do I inquire about getting the Google Home Mini? 

 

Thank you,

Re: Google Pixel 2

I moved your post here @TChung as this thread deals specifically with the Google Pixel 2 Smiley

 

I can confirm to everyone that as of today, customers reserving and activating a Google Pixel 2 on a 2 year agreement will be getting the Google Home Mini as part of the promo Google is having Very_Happy

 

There are 2 possible scenarios:

 

Pixel 2: We'll contact you when we ship you the Google Home Mini.

Pixel 2 XL: You will get your Google Home Mini with your phone.

 

Keep in mind the phone must be reserved via Fido.ca in order to qualify for the promo.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Google Pixel 2

Only on a 2 year agreement?

 

Can you confirm this or is it only to sell agreements? The text message I received from Fido just says reserve the Pixel by Oct. 18 or Nov. 14 for XL and get a Google Home Mini.

No mention of 2 year agreement.

 

If you buy it directly from Google you get the mini for free with no plan commitment

Hey @Kenjuta

 

The Google Home Mini is offered  when you take the Google Pixel 2 with a 2 year agreement. You can see this right here by clicking on +See Full Details. 

 

Hope that answers your question!

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hmm that's not good

 

is it possible to sign a 2 year agreement while keeping my current BYOP plan+rate and not get any discount on the phone?

 

I'm already planning to stick with Fido for at least another 2 years but don't want my current plan or rate to change and don't need discount on a phone

 

Google is offering the phone for the same price with a Google Home Mini without any commitment 

Telus is running the same deal too and doesn't require a 2 year agreement and only a preorder

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hey @Kenjuta

If you plan on taking the phone outright with no discount, you can definitely keep a BYOP plan Smiley
