    get seven dollars off your new phone.

    so lame, taking away business from their dealerships

  • caplin

    Why does the dog have an htc desire? That’s not a fido phone is it?

    • Sean

      They said thay are taking any phone so id be a good idea to wait outside and try and buy someones … someone should take a SGS 2 in just to see what they would give you xD

  • jack

    Device trade-in credits are applied against the new Fido phone that customers are purchasing when:

    * they activate their Fido monthly or prepaid service, or
    * as actual Fido customers, they renew their Fido service.

    so you can trade in phones once every 2-3 years. if your phone breaks after 1 year and you have to buy a new phone, you can’t even trade in the broken phone.

      You’re not saying anything new here. With EVERY company if you break your phone 1 year into a 2-3 year contract you have to buy another phone. At least Fido is giving you a trade-in option. What are the others doing, besides nothing.

      So we get to keep the “seven dollars” ? w00t!!

      naturally like your web site but you need to check the spilnelg on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spilnelg issues and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I’ll certainly come again again.

    you can only trade in WHEN you are renewing a contract OR activating a new line, NOT when you are just buying a phone. So unless they’ve misworded what it says on their website, NO you can not trade in your phone in the scenario that I have written there.

  • mda

    Can I just have the dog instead?

  • GC

    we have flipswap at my work and its pathetic how little they give for phones. I usually just tell ppl to go put it on kijiji, they’ll get double atleast

  • John Sanchez

    Totally MISLEADING advertising. Trade-in only applies if it is a FIDO phone
