Looking for Dual SIM phone for Freedom & FIDO (3G/LTE)

Are there any dual SIM phones that work with FIDO & Freedom?

I know there are phones that work with 2G FIDO. But I'm looking for 3G/LTE (it doesn't need to be LTE all times)

along the line of this discussion.......has anyone thought about using a dual-sim enabled device so you use sim1 for voice only plan ($24 corporate unlimited plan) and sim2 for data only plan (e.g. Fido's data for tablet $15-20).

this will only bring cost to $40...... is that possible? or advantageous?

Many people on this forum do that already. They usually stick to prepaid for voice (which can be down to just a few bux a month) and focus on using VoIP software for dialing out.

It is definitely possible and absolutely advantageous. You are paying $20 less a month for similar features.

Many people do this, however, MMS messages will not work because there must be data service on the line that you're trying to send/ receive the MMS picture from.

A simpler method is to find a good VoIP service and you won't require the dual sim phone or the voice/text line.
