    Where does it say, or did she tell you specifically that you need to enter WAP.FIDO.CA??? When I signed up for my 12MB/$10 "surfing plan" I did not ask anyone, just entered internet.fido.ca. So where did you get this "wap." thing from?

    ok just called fido and they told me you DON't need a fido phone to add on this unlimited plan. I asked the girl 3 times even told her what exactly I was doing...hell I even over heard her asking another operator if it was okay to use a non-fido phone. All yes!
    I had her ad a note to my account and got her name so that if I got charged .5 per kb I had something to refer back to.

    So she said its a $7 unlimited "surfing" plan. So now I have this wap unlimited plan to try for a day or two to see if it works.

    Any suggestions?

    P.S. I set up my edge settings:

    APN: wap.fido.ca
    Username: fido
    Password: fido

    Using this method I don't get the edge can't connect screen, it just never connects to a website.

    APN: internet.fido.ca
    Username: fido
    Password: fido

    Using this method I connect via edge right away. HOWEVER, I'm pretty sure that because i'm using internet.fido.ca that I'm being charged by the kb and no longer partof the wap $7 unlimited plan.

    I'm going to call tomorrow to see if I have any per kb billing or was it under my wap unlimited plan.

    Yes.. either call, or log in online later and see how you are getting billed for this. Will settle things once and for all.

    This plan seems like it would have been great about 5 years ago.. last time I had a phone that I used a WAP browser on. As far as this somehow signaling the arrival of the iPhone in Canada: I think everyone needs to get over that one. How could it signal the arrival of the iPhone when its quite blatantly indicated by Rogers/Fido that this plan will not support phones like the iPhone. Silly people.

    I don't quite agree with that - I think they don't want YOU to be using and abusing their data capacities since you're NOT paying them their FUTURE iPhone rate plan. Think about it - you could have one of these cheap $20 dollar 100 minutes plans and add $7 data to it - they wouldn't like that. Instead, I can bet my ass right here that a cheapest iPhone plan will be 70 bucks or more... I think word "unlimited" in itself signals iPhone's arrival.


    Previous post order got messed up, so I will paste my 5 cents again if you don't mind:

    The 12mb surfing option uses the intenret APN. This $7 plan uses the WAP APN only. Check out HoFo. http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1322356

    Shes wrong. Read the terms and conditions:
    http://fido.ca/portal/en/domore/sdp_options.shtml
    But then again it all maybe a bluff by Fido. More info will be out next month.

    Sorry, but I did not find an official answer there. If you can find it on the FIDO site, let us know. I have not seen this anywhere...

    The default of all Fido phones is the wap APN. Users are not supposed to change it. http://www.howardforums.com/showpost...&postcount=222

    I called Fido too and was specifically told that the $7 unlimited WAP plan is available for the iPhone. They record your calls so I think it's safe to get the plan and if they charge you later you can always tell them to check the call record.

    iPhone (OTB 1.1.1 / Currently 3.1)
    Unlock, activation, jailbreak: PwnageTool 3.1
    City Fido, Vancouver

    Did you see this guy's entry? (near the bottom)

    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/show...t=27447&page=4

    He said:

    So I suscribecd to the 7$ plan whit my iphone whit rogers, used about 10mb of data whit safari ansd youtube, call them to know if there were going to bill me, awnser no, so used another 10mb, called them again, samething not billed, user another 10mb, called again, sir you are billed 1500$ for having used 30mb of data... LOLL they cancelled the 1500$ cuz Ive had called 2 times to be shure... but now im stock whit no edge

    So the fine print was probably right, as we've suspected....
