Fido iPhone discounts
Canadian carrier Fido, a subset of Rogers, has begun selling "refreshed" iPhone 3Gs, reports say. The phones were originally bought and returned within Fido's 15-day return window, reflecting conditions similar to various refurb discounts outside of Canada. The Fido phones are specifically not refurbished, however, having only received minor attention before being put back on sale.
The phones are restricted by a three-year contract, as well as a halved warranty period of only six months. Buyers must additionally have a Fido plan dated prior to November 4th, or be on a retention/loyalty plan. 8 and 16GB refreshed models cost $149 and $249, respectively, a $50 discount.
