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

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

Hey @Kenjuta

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

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
