Default Is Fido BB connect discontinued?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

New user here. Just got a used BB (8310) last week and I'm looking to upgrade my plan. The phone is GSM, so I'm stuck with rogers (that I have now) or Fido.

I called Fido today and they told me that they did not have a BB plan, however I could get the 300MB plan and use it on my BB. I wouldn't be able to use push mail and would need forward all my emails to the fido email I would get from them.

After doing some searches on this forum and Google I found two interesting links (sorry, can't post links as I'm a new user):

Using a BlackBerry on the Fido Network | BlackBerryNews.com
Fido kills off BlackBerry Connect support, other carriers should follow suit | BlackBerry Cool

Does anyone know for sure what's the deal on that? Looks like new users cannot use BB connect anymore... :(

Thanks!

Vic.

FIDO sucks for BlackBerry See post #30.

Also, a quick search of the forum turns up other posts stating the same - that BB connect for Fido has been discontinued.

I did a search... and I went trough at least 10 posts... the problem is that I was getting a lot of mismatched information.

Is Fido's internet access the same as Rogers? I know that on Rogers unlimited browsing you can only access specific sites. I wonder if Fido's is the same...

Can anybody confirm that? I know Rogers only allow access to like 20 sites when using their internet browsing plan. Is that the same for Fido?


Thanks a lot!!
