I need a new cellphone

My phone gave up the ghost recently by refusing to detect any networks, even when it’s showing a strong signal. It’s a Nokia 8390, which while a great phone when I got it is starting to get a bit long in the tooth anyhow, so I think this is a great time to just buy a new damn phone. I don’t want to change plans or providers, though, so I can’t take advantage of a new account cheap-handset deal.

I’m also having a bit of a hard time deciding which phone to get, although when it comes to Fido’s selection of phones I’ve got it narrowed down to two, I think. So, a poll thingy:

Edit: Incidentally, there is no number portability in Canada, so changing providers means changing phone numbers. :-(

  1. Do what I did and get yourself an unlocked GSM phone from these nice people in Montreal:


    That way, you’re not limited to Fido’s selection, and you can take your phone with you should you ever change providers (although your number will of course change, as you already mentioned).
