Get HTC Magic for Free from Future Shop

As I was poking around in the weekly flyer from Future Shop, I saw something that just might be fantastic news for all the Google Android fans in Canada. Want to get the ‘droid, but don’t want to break the bank? You might want to head over to Future Shop to grab your HTC Magic smartphone, since they’re selling it for $0.00.

You can probably figure out the catch. In order to get your hands on teh touchscreen-only HTC Magic, you’ll need to latch onto a new three-year service agreement with Rogers Wireless and you probably need a data plan to qualify for that price too.

In case you didn’t catch it the first few times around, the HTC Magic smartphone gets a 528MHz processor, a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, microSD expansion, 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS with Google Maps, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, and integrated WiFi.

Yes, I know it’s not the Motorola Droid. It’s not the HTC Hero either, but the HTC Magic still seems like a pretty solid offering. Interestingly enough, I only see the $0 price point in the flyer. Looking at the product page itself, the phone is still listed at $79.99 with contract.

  1. What a piece of crap. I bought it and must have spent 20 hours min with Rogers tech people to get Name display to work. After 20 hours of being sent from one department to another I was told this phone does not support Name Display. Who buys a new phone that does not display names??? The worst part of it all is that virtually no one at Rogers seems to know this and had they I would never have bought the phone in the first place but at the very least it would have saved me 20 hours of grief.

    Quess what? Voice mail doesnt work either. Now, this being another NEW issue with the phone, I have yet to find out if the phone is capable of it or whether this is strickly an issue with my phone. I have spent 5 hours and numerous calls to Rogers over this and they are not able to rectify the problem. I had to set up the account with my land line and I can retrieve messages from a land line but absolutely can not access my messages from the cell phone.
