Fido is known as the less expensive canine companion of Rogers Wireless. While I’m not sure if these new price points will save you that much money in the long run, it is good to see some new options. There will be two new monthly prepaid plans made available through Fido by the end of this month.
More specifically, there is a new $19 plan and a new $29 plan to be offered starting March 28th. They say that this is so that they can stay competitive in the expanding Canadian wireless market.more →
Fido Check Your Usage
I remember reading some time back when that Rogers would be adding a utility to allow wireless customers access to their current usage, helping to ensure that they don’t go over their monthly allotment.

Some people don’t need all the fancy bells and whistles of an Apple iPhone. They have no interest in the security of a BlackBerry or the open source nature of Android. They just want a simple phone that works. For those people, Fido just may have the ticket with the Nokia 2720. Perhaps the most […]more →

While big brother Rogers Wireless is gearing up with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and other ultimate webphones, poor puppy Fido has been left fighting for table scraps.

You know that legislation that was passed requiring wireless carriers in Canada to provide at least one phone in their lineup that is well-suited for the visually impaired? Whereas big brother Rogers gets the Nokia E71 for this purpose, it seems that the poor visually-impaired dog is getting something much, much older. To satisfy the […]more →
Canada’s Fido definitely approaches the cheaper end of the market with its approach to pricing plans. It learned how to get rid of the system access fee. It learned how to include text messages as part of every voice plan. And soon, it may be learning how to roll over too. Chalk this one up […]more →
Joining the iPhone revolution just got a little bit cheaper. To get the newest iPhone 3GS, you have to spend at least $199 and that still requires a three-year contract.
