Fido: Nexus 4 $100 on 2-Year Plans, $425 Off-Contract

Fido: Nexus 4 $100 on 2-Year Plans, $425 Outright
This deal has expired! This deal has expired!

If you're tired of waiting for the Google Play Store to refresh with new Nexus 4 models, you might want to consider heading to Fido and picking one up for $100 on select two-year plans or for $425 off contract. Though a little more expensive than buying straight from Google, those who can't wait to get their hands on the new flagship will want to take this into consideration.

Again, while the pricing isn't as good as Google's, the cost might be offset for some by the fact that it's a crapshoot when they do go back in stock and when it expects to be shipped. For those that can't wait, it might just be easier to head to one of the many Fido locations to pick it up the popular device on the spot.

Though not available for purchase now, MobileSyrup has more information here. They expect you'll be able to order the Nexus 4 starting on February 13.

    • I'm impressed, I thought they would price it at $600. They are still ripping us off, but they are ripping us off less than I expected.

      It's $100 cheaper than T-Mobile's contract price, and it's a 2 year term and not 3 year like everything else.

      I would say it's a decent deal

    • Thats actually not a bad price at all -
      I bought the 16gb version off the Play store and it came to be around $390 with shipping + tax

      And Wind wants to sell it for $550 outright =/

    • I don't understand why I would buy a locked phone for $480 (tax incl) or an unlocked version for $425 (tax incl). People have said that you will save time on shipping. Depending on when you put your order in, thats true. For me, I will get my phone in 2 days, so I will wait for it to arrive in the mail.

      All Nexus devices are unlocked, including this one from Fido.

      So $480 no shipping and local pickup is not that bad.

      how do you know Fido locked the phone on the 2 year agreement?

      No it's not?

      From the Play Store, it's $359 + $20 (shipping) = $380.
      From Fido, it's $425.

      An extra $45 for not having to wait for shipping and to have a physical brick and mortar store to go into for any problems/repairs/issues you may have with the phone and it's $45 well spent I'd say.

      Awesome deal by Fido for once.

      How can it be $380 from Play Store? Don't you have to pay tax on that amount also?

      Fido hasn't managed to convince the CRA that they should be tax-exempt either.

      Its $428 all in from Google Play and $480 from Fido

    • not a deal

      $359 + $18 shipping from Play Store = $377 + local taxes

      So Fido is selling for about $50 MORE than the Play Store (yes you pay taxes in a Fido store - in case you were thinking it was a magical land of pixies and fairies)

      No thanks.

      $100 on 2 year contract is still crap for a $377 phone. That's $277 subsidized over 2 years (~$138/year) versus getting something like the GS3 on a $0 sale and about $600 subsidized over 3 years (~$200/year)

      You're welcome for actually doing the math.

      After having to have my Nexus 7 exchanged twice by Google I can tell you that I would rather order it from the Play store -- you'd get free return shipping and have your new device cross-shipped to you after contacting them with your issues -- much better than dropping your phone off in a repair store to pick it up after a month or so. That's worth the 1 week wait IMO.

    • Google does not tax shipping when you order from the Play Store. And the shipping is $16.99, not $18 or $20. Please stop spreading false information.

      It is $359 + Tax + $16.99 S/H.

      For Albertans, it would be like this:

      8 GB: 309*1.05+16.99 = $341.44
      16 GB: 359*1.05+16.99 = $393.94

      Fido:

      16 GB: 425*1.05 = $446.25

      I would rather buy from the Play Store just for the warranty service provided by Google (and it's considerably cheaper too).
      You could buy cases and screen protectors and still be better off by buying from Google directly.

      $50 is a rip off the RFDers, but I really expected carriers to sell them for $200 over purchase price from Google Play. $50 more for no shipping and getting the phone immediately is not too much for the masses.

      Meh. I agree that Google Play's warranty service has been stellar having RMA'ed my Nexus 4 myself. However, some people just don't want to deal with RMA shipping and all that junk and like the B&M interactions with real people. Still, $50 bucks for having the phone instantly over 2-3 weeks now on the Play Store is still a decent deal -- especially when we are talking about telcos here.

    • $425 is still too much - 2 year contract. You can get it from the Google Play Store for the same price including shipping + taxes and NO CONTRACT!

      Think you misread there. It's $100 on 2 year contract and $425 outright (no contract).
