Canada's Fido drops iPhone 3G, 3GS prices

updated 05:25 pm EDT, Thu June 17, 2010

All supporting carriers now even for 3GS

Canadian carrier Fido, a subsidiary of Rogers, has dropped prices on the iPhone 3G and 3GS. As the 3G is being phased out entirely, a refreshed 8GB model can be had for $29 under a three-year contract. A new 8GB 3G is $49, and a 16GB version is $149. The pricing of the latter is incongruous though, as a 16GB 3GS is now $99, and the 32GB option is $149.

Pricing of new 3GS models is now uniform across all iPhone carriers in the country. Along with Fido, this includes Bell, Telus, Rogers and Virgin Mobile. The only significant missing party is Wind, which uses frequencies identical to T-Mobile's in the US, and is thus incompatible with current iPhone technology. The cost cuts are meant to prepare the way for the iPhone 4, which ships to Canada in July.
