Because the cheapo phones are pure crap. Even some of the phones advertised as good are still garbage. 1%(random guess) of the phones available in Canada are actually good.

THE iclone?

There are so many different iClones,
and certainly not ALL of them are crap.

What you want to do is buy a used iphone 3g on ebay or here and unlock it and pop in a sim from fido. I bought a 3G S from fido with a 6GB data, 100 day time, 7pm EW unlimited text and caller id and voicemail for $64 a month after taxes. If I want I can drop the Data and the other options and it'd be around $25 per month. You can get an iPhone on a contract from Fido for $25/month, but you pay about $100 more for the phone up front I believe.

Regardless of what you do, go with Fido...no system access fee?

I had a reviewer for Ars Technica play with my HTC Touch Pro 2 today while he compared it to his Iphone. He was impressed. He's not a Mac fanboi or anything but he really didn't think that Window Mobile was going to make the cut.

He left shaking his head somewhat amused and suprised.

WinMo is getting a HUGE boost when 6.5 is finally out as Microsoft is going to be setting up their own WinMo store :)

6.5 is going to be a huge things for the new WinMo phones.

Check out the Meizu M8

Meizu is a well known china brand that makes affordable, very high quality products. They make really good mp3 players (sound quality wise).

Best thing I was able to do was get the HTC Touch Pro 2.

I've got absolutely no complaints so far except that the "TouchFLO" gui wrapper HTC put on top of Windows Mobile does not "wrap" every screen. Eventually if you go deep enough into menus you get dropped down into the Windows Mobile GUI. While plain, it's not bad it's just a touch confusing when it happens.

Both of this FTW.. I actually am also thinking about Touch Pro.. only thing is affording the data/voice plan..
Plus HTC I heard has amazing service.. Check out howardforums.com that's your all-in-one info on almost any phone released or un-released..
