We talked about the Fido phone service and the types of plans they offer, now it’s time to see what their phones look like. They offer a wide variety of prepaid cell phones. As of April 2011, there are 14 prepaid-compatible Fido phones to choose from.
The least expensive of the choices is the Nokia C1 which goes for $50. It’s a rather basic model that comes with MP3 player VGA camera and FM radio. If you send a lot of text messages, this might not be the phone for you as it does not have a full QWERTY keyboard.
The most expensive phone offered at $275 is the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro. This 3G technology phone comes with integrated Wi-Fi and GPS, a 5.1 megapixel camera, a slide out keyboard and a host of other features.
With phone styles ranging from flip phones to slide out keyboards to blackberry style handsets, Fido phone offers a wide selection that will suit just about anyone’s cellular phone needs.
