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

and by keeping my BYOP plan I can still sign a 2 year agreement and get a Google Home Mini when I reserve and pick it up?

Re: Google Pixel 2

Agreement are in place to offer a subsidy on our phones. With a BYOP, you will not take advantage of a subsidy so there won't be any agreement. I hope this clarifies things Smiley

When it comes to reserving and picking up the phone, you'll have to keep an eye on Fido.ca for updates and details Smiley

Re: Google Pixel 2

but then that means I won't be able to get a free Google Home Mini as well then since I can't sign an agreement with my current plan right?

Re: Google Pixel 2

That's right. 
Agreements can't be taken on BYOP plans.

Re: Google Pixel 2

alright that sounds like I can't get the Google Home Mini for free from Fido and I'll just cancel my reservation

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hey everyone!

 

Just wanted to provide an update as some were wondering about VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling.

 

I can confirm that Fido supports VoLTE on Google Pixel devices purchased from Fido, and this will also be the case for the Pixel 2. Wi-Fi calling will also be available in an update following the launch.

 

Hope this helps! Very_Happy

Re: Google Pixel 2

That's awesome to hear!

 

Any chance you can also find out if the ones bought directly from Google will work since iPhone bought directly from Apple works with VoLTE and WiFi calling

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hey @Kenjuta

 

You will need to get the phone from Fido to make sure you have access to all those features.

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hey everyone! @Kenjuta had asked about the eSIM and I'm happy to provide an update on that as well! 

 

We do have plans to support eSIM next year, and we will update our customers as we get closer to that time.

 

Hope this helps out! Smiley

Re: Google Pixel 2

Are both Pixel 2 and XL 2  come unlocked out of box?

Or I need to pay to get the unlock code?

Re: Google Pixel 2

Thank a lot Nick, The reason I asked  is, I was browsing the fido phone sections and you can there`s a little lock on top left side of each phone. So I dont know about that sign, I thought they might be unlocked to fido.

 

Thanks anyway for you answer.
