Some sad sad news today for our neighbors up north. Fido, the Canadian carrier for the Hiptop, is sending out text messages to their Hiptop customers saying “Fido info: We have some important information about your Hip Top option. Please call us at 1-866-273-FIDO (3436) and press 2”. Those calling the number are being informed that Fido will be shutting down the Hiptop service come April 30th, 2009. It’s a sad day, and many users are now trying to figure out what device to move to. Sorry to see you guys go! Here’s hoping the Sidekick/Hiptop makes it back up there under another provider! Maybe via T-Mobile? It’s been almost a year since they were rumored to be moving into Canada.
