    R.I.P. Fido Hiptop Option

    Looks like they will be getting rid of it in a few days.

    i got a txt message, called, dude tells me he has no info yet.

    if they dont offer anything comparable, i will make the biggest stink they have ever heard from any client.

    this is TOTAL BS, i have been on hiptop data for 6 years.

    i will not forget this.

    Ditto, this better not happen. If so they better give us quite a bit of money etc etc etc.

    I am not happy with Fido if this goes through.

    I don't know, some people have made pretty big stinks before. You are going to need to be really really good to top some of those.

    i am on cityfido with no saf, so a blackberry wont come cheap...and honestly blackberry stinks compared to what the hiptop could do. (especially with a developpers key).

    also , no we were grandfathered, so we werent aware that they would discontinue the option..... isnt that the whole point when you're grandfathered.

    not happy at all about this.

    i am willing to give the stink making a try

    Exactly, the hiptop can do many things that the BB can't. It is the best platform of any cell on the market today.

    When it comes to options grandfathered means you can keep it only as long as it's in the system. If they get scrapping the servers for danger etc... then it's gone from the system completely and they are unable to support it. they allowed you to keep it this long, doesn't mean they had to let you keep it.

    terminal server (SSH) connections into linux / unix servers,

    unlimited multiclient instant messaging (msn, yahoo, aol)

    flip screen which protects keyboard when closed (ergonomically superior to all blackberries).

    web client for phone management

    server centric web browsing and phone information storage.


    just to name a few

    I can do this on my BB

    unlimited multiclient instant messaging (msn, yahoo, aol)
    This too. MSN, AOL, ICQ, GTALK

    flip screen which protects keyboard when closed (ergonomically superior to all blackberries).
    ummm protecting the screen would be better.

    web client for phone management
    ??

    Ahh so the cops can get a warrent and get all your stuff without getting your phone.

    These are my fav 2, the backend server is amazing, enter anything on the phone or desktop interface, it is instantly replicated. Keyboard is better than any on on the market for a cell phone.

    the cops...thats the best you can come up with...pretty weak.

    i especially like ?? as a reply.

    Dude, if you're in this thread just to crap on everyone who actually owns a unit, take a hike. no one cares that you like you BB, this is a Hiptop Thread.

    i mean you've added nothing constructive to this thread, only wise a** remarks.

    no one has to prove anything to prove to you. get a life

    ps. anyone trying to deal 10kilos of coke wouldnt be using their hiptop or bb..
