    Default Fido Users - Post Your Free Unlock Issues

    I used the Free Unlock on my iPhone and everything works well, expect:

    1) FIDO's new voicemail SMS never arrives. All other SMS do.

    2) EDGE will not work (tried both wap.fido.ca and internet.fido.ca)
    Um, so the EDGE network starting working for me and I have no idea why. I had previously tried restarting, reactivating, restoring, having Fido turn the service on and off and nothing fixed it. It's been 2 days and I haven't touched my settings. On my way home, I accidentally touched the weather and *boom* it updated without failing (or getting that "you're not subscribed to Edge" warning.) Very strange. It's like Fido flipped a switch.

    3) My computer's bluetooth can see the iPhone, but the iPhone can't see it. Can't pair at all.
    A 2nd restart of both allowed pairing.

    4) All word, excel and PDF's have stopped working in Mail (they either never load or load blank.) They worked before.
    IGNORE #4 This was an email client issue.)

    5) Youtube can't connect (expected and I know it can be fixed.)
    After the SW unlock, I restored and then used INdependence 1.2.1a. YouTube works like a charm.

    I'm on a PPC Mac running iTunes 7.4.1.

    Any other FIDO users wanna get together and fix things?

    I have the same issue with voicemail SMS but not a deal breaker for me.
    I didn't test EDGE as I have disabled data on my account to avoid any charges. For the bluetooth issues, I did get my macbook to pair with iPhone but without the file transfer support bluetooth is pretty much useless. I just tried opening a PDF file through mail in my gmail account and it seems to load fine. To fix youtube I just did the steps mentioned in this thread http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthre...hlight=youtube and now it works fine. Hope this helps and let me know if you figure out how to resolve the voicemail SMS issue.

    Thanks for replying.

    The VM SMS wouldn't be a big deal (especially with the missed calls being listed,) but I've always found (on my SE Z520a) that 10% - 20% of my calls don't ring and go straight to VM. Without that VM SMS, I'd never know I missed them.

    Edge - totally get why you opted out.

    Bluetooth. I've restart both my Mac and iPhone. I've managed to pair them.

    Office/PDFs. Just realized that it was my Eudora email client. Must be an issue with attachment coding. My apologies.

    Youtube - I'm PPC, not INTEL , but thanks for the link.

    Thanks again.

    1) I do not get the voicemail sms however I did get what I think is a missed call sms. I was testing voice mail with iphone off. When I turned the iphone back on, no voicemail message but a few 'hours' later got this other one. from +8888 WhoCalled

    2) EDGE does not work for me. Tried same as you. Called fido thinking something must still not be enabled on my account. Everything is fine according to them and thats all they can do cause it is an unsupported device.

    3) bluetooth - my mac sees a unknown device. I believe bluetooth only works for headphones on the iphone now.

    4) word doc attachment in mail works fine

    5) youtube works fine, you have to do somthing extra after activation to get youtube to work. Lots of threads here about that.


    For me I would like EDGE to work.

    Thanks for replying.

    1) VM SMS. Hmmm. Hours later just plain sucks. I'm thinking I'll call Fido to ask what could cause no SMS.

    2) I also thought EDGE was EDGE, but apparently it's not with FIDO. This really ticks me off.

    3) Bluetooth - I think you're right about only bt headsets.

    5) I'll dig around tomorrow morning and find something for PPC Macs. I'm not worried about this one.

    I have had my phone for about a week so far with a HW unlock and I am experiencing the same problems so we know it is not a software unlock issue. It has to do with Fido.


    1) I never received VM text's.
    2) I have beat my self silly with EDGE trying different things. My phone Usage says it is sending and receiving KB but it never works. internet.fido.ca doesnt connect while wap.fido.ca does. but nothing happens.
    3) Paired my phone with my computer but cant do anything with it.
    4) word, pdfs do work
    5) youtube works

    My phone always says Rogers Wireless in the carrier.
