    Will unlocked Telus HTC Desire work with Fido?

    This isn't a general question, but a very specific one.

    I've been with Fido for a few years and don't want to leave.

    I have been wanting to get an HTC Desire for awhile, and I almost bought an unlocked one online, but when I heard that the new Telus version would have better 3G speeds (instead of the dual-band 3G like the previous versions), I decided to wait.

    But now I have the question: If I buy the Telus HTC Desire without a contract, unlock it, and connect it to Fido, will it still work at the high data speeds that it should? Will I still get OS updates? Will everything work correctly?

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, it should work just fine. You may run into an issue with SMS timestamps due to the way Rogers network is setup. You will want to download "SMS Time Fix" via the Market to resolve the time problem.

    Yes dean, it should work perfectly on Fido and any other network after the unlock. But make sure that it's not blacklisted before you unlock it. Good luck!
