Take advantage of the FidoTRADE program to get a credit towards your new Fido phone without having to pay more from your pocket.
Fido now takes back any used phone with the battery. You’ll get a credit equivalent to your used phone’s value, if applicable, for use in-store on the cost of your new phone or accessories. The FidoTRADE™ program is available when you buy and activate a new Fido phone - even on a Prepaid plan.
With FidoTRADE, you can get rid of your old phone. The program takes back all types of devices from any carrier in Canada, the U.S. or any other country in the world.
Fido teams up with Flipswap
Flipswap is a leading provider of an incentivized device trade-in and recycling program, that determines the value for devices based on four evaluation questions:
- Does the phone power on?
- Is anything broken, cracked or missing?
- Is the phone water damaged?
- Does the LCD work and display correctly?
Device trade-in credits are applied against the new Fido phone that customers are purchasing when:
- They activate their Fido monthly or Prepaid service, or
- As actual Fido customers, they renew their Fido service.
Flipswap will Plant a Tree on your behalf
For phones that have depreciated over time and have no trade-in value, Flipswap will plant a tree on your behalf when you donate your used device. Trees are planted by award-winning agroforestry organizations in twelve tropical countries fighting deforestation and poverty.
