WOAH... umm UNO not working like it suposed?
Will they replace it with something uno compatable?
^8520 on Rogers is TalkSpot compatible. Perhaps the Fido variant will be as well?

I had intention of getting Z6W UNO phone for my move home phone is almost never been used so ill prob cancel that and activate that. But bah... oh well for the Moto Z.... i admit i liked its simple design... let's see what will replace
Did anybody have experience with the Phone and the UNO service? (or the roger equal)
I had that phone when i first time signed contract with Fido. It is a pretty nice phone. Although i didnt active the UNO service, I can make calls using the WiFi.
A interesting thing is when i make phone calls using WiFi, my data meter on my router shows that there is a data stream coming through the phone's IP. But the minutes i used with WiFi, still falls into my 350 minutes.
I dunno why, but when i dial *28 to check my bill, the system will inform me please use a GSM network to make the call. and when you browse the web using wifi, it use the router's data, and the speed inceases a little.

browse the web with wifi on that phone
now there's something i didn't know... but i think its kinda normal that your being charged for it since probably on fido side they see your using the WIFI to connect to their network and prob charge like a regular call... might be that
but wow really didnt expect to see wifi browsing... might be something cool to give that to one of my friend as a gift... now the trouble might be finding one hehe
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !!!!!!!!
As far as I know there is no wifi browsing. I've had the phone for a year and a half or so. I use and pay for UNO. It's never worked as advertised for me... instead of switching it always drops the call, often drops UNO at home for no reason.
Still I canceled my land line so I've saved that fee over the year or so. I just watch and make sure it's connected to my network before making a call. Not a heavy user of the phone I used 171 minutes on UNO last month.
My wife used 6301. She had UNO service. Then the p[hone broke down and we canceled the service.
For the wifi browsing, theoretically, it should has no data stream from the router which it connects to. But it has the data stream get in and out and the size of the data, is almost the size of the website that i am browsing.

For starters, the phone has exceptional battery life when WiFi is disabled (I can easily go 5 days or longer without charging) but I barely get a day with WiFi enabled (I never use it any more). It also has a really hard time finding and maintaining a WiFi connection, and frequently drops out of it back to cellular despite a strong WiFi signal. If you were paying for a UNO package you'd have a real issue as you'd never really know when answering a call if it was actually connected over UNO or not. It also fails to seamlessly roam between WiFi routers so if you need a repeater to cover your house, your UNO reception won't ever work right.
UNO could also have a lot more potential if Rogers/Fido didn't lock it down so badly. The fact it won't work outside of Canada is sad and I can only assume they prefer you pay for outrageous roaming fees instead. And even within Canada, because they insisted Motorola not include a browser, it becomes impossible to log the phone into any (open) WiFi hotspot that has a landing page. If anything, they should be pushing more WiFi usage by providing free access to the Rogers hotspots (not that I've ever come across one) as this would reduce the load on the towers.
But whatever. The phone does have top notch voice quality.
Wifi is pretty bad to maintain connectivity.
Using Opera mini, this is the fastest browsing phone I've used. Even faster than my Xenon using Opera.

When I used Fido Uno, it was working like a charm. I was using the Nokia 6085 tho..
Your router shows data consumption via your phone because, well it is consuming data. Calls are routed via your internet service, hence using '' internet '' data.
Like VoIP, kinda
Of course I'd like to sit around and chat. Of course I'd like to sit and chew the fat....
