Or just save the organs and get the Note 8 with 99% of the same features. :)

What they should have done is put touch ID on the rear of the phone. Hell, they could have put it behind the Apple logo.

Actually the first phone Craig picked up had not been unlocked, and asked for a PIN. Same behaviour would have occurred with Touch ID.

Yes. I think it was after a reboot. That's normal, asking for a passcode.

Well, I guess I can happily state that you, too, are wrong, as Face ID did not 'fail' but worked as it was supposed to work.

Thanks for providing the clarification.

@Cory Z aren't you an Android user? I'm not surprised that Koodo will offer all iPhones, given that if you don't offer them, you quickly lose access to a sizeable market share.

Yet overlook SONY and skip the 2017 Motorola devices and Koodo/TELUS does not fear a loss of revenue :-O

I just grabbed an HTC U11. It's $829 unlocked right now, and it gets great reviews across the board. Top tier camera and killer audio quality.

Sure, Samsung has more bells and whistles, but they only matter if you need them. Oh yes, and also more $$$.

Anyone wanna buy an unlocked LG G6? Lol

"Do you mind explaining why my MB/SK plan hasn't been taken away?"

Because you've done a stupendous job of remaining anonymous and keeping your personal/account information hidden. Kudos. Otherwise it wouldn't be a question of power - if service terms are being violated, the company has the authority to take action. But need to find you first ;)

With regards to the vigilante vendetta - while the passion is admirable, it may be ill-founded. IMHO. Best of luck this round.

Why would I give you my personal information here for you to specifically take away my plan to make a (fake) statement? My information is inside Koodo's systems. My Koodo account is not anonymous. You can be sure that my account has been seen by a lot of Koodo reps. If they aren't taking my plan away, then why would they take anyone's plan? I, and many others have helped MANY people get these special plans, for free -we don't scam people unlike Canadian providers and those selling these plans for a fee. We have never seen anyone's plan get taken away. So maybe try to be a little bit honest on here instead of banning me for telling the truth. If you are being truthful here, why don't you do this: just go onto that computer you are using. Search for customers who are on MB/SK/QC plans but have non-MB/SK/QC numbers or addresses, and then change all of their plans. Is that too difficult? There should be hundreds if not thousands of people who are violating this service terms you speak of. Of course you are not going to do that, because you are being dishonest here, and you would probably get in a lot of trouble with your supervisors because you would lose so many customers. Or you could also simply disable porting non-MB/SK/QC numbers onto MB/SK/QC plans just like Fido, Rogers, Bell, and Virgin Mobile have done. I will be waiting.

what in the world do the messages from "Swish Swish" and "Name" have to do with the new iPhones?  Quit hijacking threads.

Agreed with @Jru Gordon

Looks like Swish Swish has been knocked out.

All carriers will offer these iPhones for pre-order and launch. I wonder what Koodo will do differently. Any tab activation discounts? Any exclusive gifts? Already Koodo iPhone users are missing out on wifi calling.

Most likely the same time as the iphone 8 and 8 plus preorders did.
