**Update1: How to find out your iPhone 4 Fido upgrade eligibility: click here TAKE THIS WITH A GRAIN OF SALT.

Here we go again. More iPhone 4 pricing rumours, however this time around it’s embedded in the Fido website source code. Here’s what Adam discovered from his digging (Chantelle Joy also found some goodies before too) from this page: http://www.fido.ca/web/Fido.portal?_…eting-_-iphone

function checkEligibility() {
var Eligibility_urlStr =
“/web/com/fido/portlets/handset/iphoneRequest/upgradeEligibility.jsp”;
var ctn = jQuery.trim($(“#LightphNo1”).val()) +
jQuery.trim($(“#LightphNo2”).val()) + jQuery.trim($(“#LightphNo3”).val());
var postalCode = jQuery.trim($(“#LightphNo4”).val());
Eligibility_urlStr = Eligibility_urlStr + “?ctn=” + ctn + “&postalCode=” +
postalCode;

$.ajax({
url: Eligibility_urlStr,
cache: false,
type: “POST”,
dataType: “html”,
timeout: 300000,
success: function(data, textStatus){
data = jQuery.trim(data);
if(data == ‘H’) {
$(‘#checkContent’).css(‘display’,’none’);
$(‘#eligibleContent’).css(‘display’,’block’);
$(‘#eligibleMsg’).html(‘You are eligible to upgrade to an iPhone4 at the special
price of $199 for 16GB or $299 for 32GB, with a 3 year Fido Agreement.
FidoDollars applicable. Certain conditions apply.’);
}
else if(data == ‘M’) {
$(‘#checkContent’).css(‘display’,’none’);
$(‘#eligibleContent’).css(‘display’,’block’);
$(‘#eligibleMsg’).html(‘You are eligible to upgrade to an iPhone4 at $699 for
16GB or $799 for 32GB, with a 3 year Fido Agreement. FidoDollars applicable. In
addition, you will receive a $250 Fido Rewards bonus. Certain conditions
apply.’);
}
else if(data == ‘S’) {
$(‘#checkContent’).css(‘display’,’none’);
$(‘#eligibleContent’).css(‘display’,’block’);
$(‘#eligibleMsg’).html(‘You are eligible to upgrade to an iPhone4 at $699 for
16GB or $799 for 32GB, with a 3 year Fido Agreement. FidoDollars applicable. In
addition, you will receive a $450 Fido Rewards bonus. Certain conditions
apply.’);
}
else if(data == ‘null’) {
$(‘#checkContent’).css(‘display’,’none’);
$(‘#eligibleContent’).css(‘display’,’block’);
$(‘#eligibleMsg’).html(‘You are eligible to upgrade to an iPhone4 at $699 for
16GB or $799 for 32GB, with a 3 year Fido Agreement. FidoDollars applicable. In
addition, you will receive a $450 Fido Rewards bonus. Certain conditions
apply.’);
}
},
error: function(xhrRequest, textStatus, errorThrown){
//onError(xhrRequest, textStatus, errorThrown)
}
});
return false;
}

So, if this source code is correct once again, we get the following prices:

3 year contract pricing
iPhone 4 16GB: $199
iPhone 4 32GB: $299

Contract free pricing:
iPhone 4 16GB: $699
iPhone 4 32GB: $799

These unlocked prices differ from our unlocked iPhone 4 predictions and CBC’s reported pricing. The only price we have yet to confirm is the unlocked iPhone 4 pricing from the Apple Store. The 699/799 price point is the same as outright iPhone 3GS units during last year’s launch.
