My phone gave up the ghost recently by refusing to detect any networks, even when it's showing a strong signal. It's a Nokia 8390
, which while a great phone when I got it is starting to get a bit long in the tooth anyhow, so I think this is a great time to just buy a new damn phone
. I don't want to change plans or providers, though, so I can't take advantage of a new account cheap-handset deal.
I'm also having a bit of a hard time deciding which phone to get, although when it comes to Fido's selection of phones
I've got it narrowed down to two, I think. So, a poll thingy:Edit:
Incidentally, there is no number portability in Canada, so changing providers means changing phone numbers. :-(
Last time you wanted a new cellphone, what did you pay?
Far less than retail, because I switched companies to get a new phone
Far less than retail, because I was switching plans anyway
A bit less than retail, because my provider offered me an upgrade or I signed a new contract
A bit less than retail, by buying an unlocked phone through Ebay or something like that
Full retail from my provider
Any comments on phone pricing?
I want a GSM world phone with an integrated camera and color display. What should I get?
Buy something else from someone other than Fido (specify below)
Something else, you say? What, then?
