I don't get it.
I love Nokia phones, but I live in the States. Nokia doesn't seem to have lots of love for the U.S.
They have released the 850 version of the 6300 for Canada, but it's locked to Fido.
C'mon Nokia...what gives already???

If the 850 version is released in CN, I don't care if they release it here, as long as we can get our hands on it! We can always unlock it and use it here. If anyone finds the CN version for sale online, please post!

The Canadian version (currently) is only available locked to Fido. I haven't seen anything online about an unlocked 850 version.

As far as I know any Nokia can be unlocked. So now we just need to find someone who got one from Fido and wants to sell. I'll be watching ebay . . .

I don't think I'd roll with one on Ebay...who knows if the phone is legit???
I saw someone on another site saying that they got an unlocked one from this place:
http://www.mobilecityonline.com/wireless/store/produ ... »
He said he didn't work there/no connection to store, and that it seemed to be the proper phone (noted as 6300b under the battery).
I still am going to wait a little longer to see if it pops up with a U.S. carrier.

You make a good point, however if I have to wait another 3 months for it to be avail. here or the price to go down at Mobilecity, I'd be willing to give the ebay one a shot. I'm hoping the price stays at the current level, $150-200.

Good luck. I might just grab one from MobileCity as their prices seem about the same as an unlocked 900 version on other sites.
If I hear chatter of release by a U.S. carrier, I could wait a little more, but I really want one.
