Answered question

"Phones are available at discounted prices during this beta test". What kind of phones are available?

I just heard about a beta test, and the details are here: https://community.fizz.ca/questions/2472069-need-phone-need-beta-testers
Is not clear if Fizz launch a home phone service and these are special home phones going with Fizz, or is about cell phones. In the latter case, what is to test?
In both cases, what kind of phones are available right now (model, mark) to be tested...
Can somebody help?
Thank you.

Hi Mihai

This Fizz offer is for mobile phones.
Fizz is offering both iPhone and Android phones.

From what I understand, it is their first time selling phones.
So they are starting with a beta test (to work with smaller numbers and to receive feedback on the process) before releasing it to all customers.

They also intend to add a financing option. I suppose this will be one of the next phase of the beta test.

Thanks again Fizzy. You are a really Encyclopedia.
I understand that for financing they need a beta testing, but for the phones? In Fizz network are already all kind of mobile, no restriction, and they already know what is working or not. Are they specially configured for Fizz?

Mihai

Lol I'm definitely no encyclopedia, but thank you.

I would believe the phones sold should already be unlocked and compatible with Fizz network.

I think the beta test is more to work out the logistics (site infrastructure, your rewards, customer service, delivery, returns, etc)

Here is what Fizz writes:
"Buying a phone, the Fizz way: welcome to the beta test.
Your participation as a beta tester is appreciated. In exchange for your time to test our business processes and answer two short surveys, you have the chance to buy a phone at a very attractive price. Ready? Let’s go!"

Mihai, I hadn't heard back as well. I assume some priority will be given to older clients.

There are New and reconditioned (preloved) Iphone and Samsung phones

Iphone 7,8 8+, XR, NR max, Xs X, Se2, 11
Samsung Galaxy 10, S10e, S10 plus

Tons of phones at great price

Thanks for the response. I signed up the other day... been with Fizz since the early beta days but still haven't heard back. My Essential PH-1 is feeling a little war-torn atm so I am hoping to check out Fizz's inventory soon

Hi Fizzy,

With all answers here, I will register to see what's coming.
BTW, I lived with impression that now, with new CRTC rules, all cell phones are mandatory to be sold UNLOCKED ... Isn't it?

Hi Victor,

Thank you for let us know what phones are in offer. Yes, they have quite a large offer, as you say, from best : Iphone, Samsung and Google.
Do you by chance know some of the "special" prices for respective phones? Just to compare with the usual market. I'm not in urgent need, but if the price is "very, very" special, I may make an effort to buy one.
So, can you give me some examples of prices?
Thank you.

Hi Carlo,

Thanks for replying.
Concerning your "assume some priority will be given to older clients" I think is false, as Evan said he is "with Fizz since the early beta days but still haven't heard back", so, IMO we are all in the same priority, no favors apply.
