Planning to upgrade to the iPhone 5 within the next couple of weeks. I am on Fido & I plan to renew my contract while I upgrade (old contract finishes this December) to the iPhone 5. Can I use my Fido Dollars against the subsidy price of $159/$199 for the iPhone 5, then pay separate upgrade fee ($20/$25)?

Yes. Fido dollars can be used against a new phone on contract (or unlocked).

Fido won't sell you an unlocked phone - you'd have to buy it locked, then pay an additional fee to unlock it.

Yeah, that's right. Had a lapse in memory that only Apple direct sells 'em unlocked. But, looks like the OP wants it on contract. That said, the Fido dollars subtract from the total price of the upgrade - if there are additional fees, it would be the iPhone, plus the fees, minus the value of your Fido dollars, plus tax.

Thanks for clarifying. On Fido's Support Page, it did not strictly state you can use Fido Dollars while upgrading to a new phone via a new contract. It only said you can use Fido Dollars if you buying a phone for a month-to-month account or without a contract.

That's why I wanted to get some info from here.

Apple has posted a page of iOS 6 Feature Availability showing which features are available in which country.

Thankfully, of the 24 features, all of them are available in Canada except for 3D maps.

Which is odd, because I'm sure I saw reports that Apple was mapping out Toronto already and some people were seeing that in the iOS 6 betas.

ehMacians were asking in the iChat/Messages chat this afternoon during the keynote if Siri Sports would support NHL scores.

The answer to that is yes, Siri will give us the latest scores on the hockey game eh.

Also, lots of soccer leagues!

I cant say I'm totally blown away by the iphone5. I was kinda hoping it'd be just a weeee... bit wider.

I'll look at the list of new iOS6 features. Maybe this iphone 4 is just fine for now. I donno yet. Somewhat underwhelmed a little.

Is there some kind of set-up required if I buy an unlocked phone and a nano-sim specific to my current provider?

No more than if you bought a model locked to your carrier.
