    Exclamation Can I use other GSM phone on Fido network?

    I was wondering if I can buy a unlocked tri band gsm phone over the net (web store or e-bay) and have it connected on Fido?
    I saw lots of cool looking phones that Fido does not offer.
    Will they work on the Fido network and keep all their functions like surf the web or SMS?

    You can run a unlocked gsm phone on Fido as long as it supports GSM 1900, which is the band fido works on. All you need to do is swap the sim card into the new phone, and as long as the new phones supports the features and you are subscribed to them SMS and web browsing will exist. I'm running a Sony Ericsson T68i on fido and it's great.

    Cheers....
