Good deal for home phone for yourself or someone else like parents as long as your a current Fido postpaid customer.

Rogers has similar deal, but it isn't available if Rogers offers native Home Phone service in your area while Fido seems to be anywhere as long as there is a Fido cellular signal.

I don't understand.... Is this an addon for a current cell phone that includes North American calling and CID/VM? Or a landline?

Also I googled this and found nothing on it? Source? Link?

No, standalone 'landline' Home Phone service.

Sorry, added the link to OP.

At this price I'd actually consider getting one. I wonder what the quality of service is like.

So this is still considered a "landline"? My alarm monitoring company requires that we have a landline phone. Currently with Telus paying $30+, would love it if this Fido thing works just the same.

I wonder if they can give customers two landline numbers with one account. My wife and I recently moved to Calgary and we have Edmonton number, but we don't plan on changing them as we travels back a lot and our friends and family are in Edmonton as well. If they can give us two landline numbers, then we can just forward the landline to our phone and give Calgary people our home phone numbers......

For the quality of voice, they use the Rogers/Fido cellular network so it should sound perfectly fine.

I wonder if it's possible to use the SIM card from this in a regular cell phone. I'm pretty sure it'd be soldered in or something like that though.

Looks like it just launched today, so very few of us have even bought it yet ! Also I wonder if Fido dollars can be used to purchase the device ??

Even it is using SIM, I think Roger will have some kind of locking in place such as only specific IMEI will allow.

KK :)
