Well my iphone 4 was stolen last weekend. I am on a contract and not elegible for an upgrade just yet but I have $180 fido dollars. They wouldnt let me use it for any smartphone because it requires a new activation on a 3 year term etc to use fido dollars. They said i could use my fido dollars on a non-smart phone with no term.


SO, I use the phone and connect to my laptop to tether. I don't use my phone for much else besides texting. The iphone looks cool but I dont use it much for its apps or features so Im ok with a different phone.

Can I use a non-smart phone to tether? I have the 6GB data plan etc still. Are non smart-phones the same speeds up/down as an iphone 4?

I was looking at the vivaz and the t715 on fidos website.


any input is appreciated.

just buy a cheap ol 3G phone from the Fli market and teher it, a motorola RAZR2 V9 is a great 3G non smart phone. but why limit yourself to non-smart phones? you can prolly buy a samsung jack for cheap too and it can use your existing data plan and theather too.

The Sony Ericsson T715 can be used for tethering as well. Just needs to have its software reverted back to factory settings. See the Sony site for details on returning it to its factory state.
