    Phone that will work on mobilicity and fido.

    Im currently with fido until my contract (which has haunted my for about half a year now) expires next november.
    The rest of my family is on mobilicity and paying half what i pay and getting far more services.

    My Blackberry curve 8520 trackpad is broken and i need a new phone. Ive tried all the fixes i could find (though im open to try any ideas you guys have).

    I dont want to spend lots on a new phone just to not be able to use it when i switch, and i tend to keep my phones longer than the average person. Ive had my bb since mid 2010 i think.

    Im looking for a phone that can operate on Wind (AWS) and Fido (GSM)

    Re: Phone that will work on mobilicity and fido.

    The above suggestions work, iirc most Nokia Windows phones are pentaband as well.

    If you're ok with spending a bit more, the T999 Galaxy S III or the T889V Note II would also fit the bill.

    Good luck,

    Louis

    how do i find out if for example the galaxy s3, which i actually like the look of is the t999 model or not.
    For example, the model mobilcity and fido are selling are different and i think only the mobiliicy one would work on both but i have like 600 fido dollars.

    Also, i should note that phones have really never been really important to me.

    I have a couple expensive hobbies and dropping 600 dollars (fido dollars are ok) on a phone isnt the best option for me, but its better than dropping 300 dollars twice. If theres a pentaband phone that i could get used or its cheap that would be sick.

    What about the Samsung Exhibit II 4G SGH-T679

    So even though fido doesnt list it in the specs, i should be ok.
    Ok, i think ill go get that and i think if something goes wrong, i should be able to return the phone within 15 days.

    Thanks for the help everyone, especially shushwap.
    So now it comes down to two options
    A 150 dollar nokia with real $$ or a 599 dollar galaxy s3 with fido dollars.
    Theoretically i could buy an s3 with fido dollars, sell it and buy the cheap nokia and pocket like 400 bucks.

    The Fido HTC One S will work on Wind/Mobilicity. You can probably use your Fido $ to buy it outright.
