Following is from a CS person on Fido's forum.

As you can see over here we do offer the LG GPad IV. Although we do not have access to store inventory, you give a call to your local Fido store to see if they have some in stock.
It's always possible to place the order through customer service as well.
The promotion for our tablet plan is still up and running and you can double check right here as well
The pricing difference will be if you take the tablet through the Easy Pay(which you pay monthly on top of your plan) or through a 2 year term.


++++++++++++

Here's the Fido link for various tablets. Scroll to the bottom for explanation.

Should we then expect an offer of free Gpad IV + free plus pack with data-only plan, for Boxing day or so? :)
Wow! I just found this while I surfed on the web.

https://www.tmonews.com/2017/09/lg-g-pa ... d-battery/

So, Americans down the border got both tablet and plus pack for $240, and we got only the tablet for the price unreasonably highly set, $336. :(

I've wondered why it's really difficult to find a store to get a Plus Pack either online or nearby store. I think it's because the Plus Pack was supposed to be included in the LG G Pad IV tablet package. I am glad my theory was proven correct, but somewhat sad. Disappointed But Relieved Face

Also, you can get an idea how much the price will be in Canada from the link below. I think it's a wholesale price, $109.95.

Hehe.. 240 USD is about 300 CAD. So, Canadian providers Robbers/Fido/Windom robbed their customers roughly of $100 bucks in this scam.

Let us see if their greed will loosen up for Boxing day, where they could offer a free complementary dock together with free tabby :)
I somehow doubt it tho...

Battery life on the IV really doesn't seem that great if using on wifi (had Airplane mode on then turned on wifi). I think that matches with what people have reported for the III as well.

Hopefully no bootloop issue (assuming no heavy usage on this thing...)

For those looking for a protective sleeve for the LG Gpad III or IV, I'm using this with the III I have, and just ordered another for the IV.
Nice snug fit. 3 colours.
Seems to be real leather, but not sure.
15.99$ with shipping.

For screen protector, there is one from the same company.

The KuGI protectors are garbage. They attract ALL sorts of dust that I've never seen ANYWHERE else. Never have had issues putting on a screen protector but had to keep removing and replacing it as dust specs were underneath the glass. On the last attempt (maybe number three or four), it shattered!

Had purchased one of the same for my wife's GPad III and am sending that back. Now looking elsewhere at eBay and hoping to find something better.

For cases on the IV, I like the MoKo cases. Fits perfectly.
