I'm thinking about getting one as well. I hate having to carry two devices at once. My iPod is perfect for surfing the web and watching media, but then I have to carry a phone to make calls, so it's an iPod in one pocket and a ***** 5310 in the other. I really don't like that.

Here's my question though: Should I buy the phone at full price with no contract or settle for another 3-year contract? My 3-year term is about to end soon, so I'm looking for a new phone.

How do I get a hold of the retention center? Just call *611 and then ask to speak to a retention officer?

Just say you're having serious issues with Rogers and want to cancel, and they'll take you to retentions...

I got mine Friday with Fido. 6GB of data, 100 minutes, 7pm E/W, Call Display and Voicemail for about 62/month after discount. So far it's been amazing although I did have a problem with the touch screen locking up :S I wiped the phone last night and reinstalled the firmwire so hopefully that fixes it. Other than that I couldn't be happier, a huge upgrade from my 3 year old *****.

If the problem persists then complain and they should send you a new phone.

You could get all this stuff for less than the price of 2 Iphones.
ya right and carry 4 devices in my pockets and some of the sub par to the iPhone. I know this is opinion based but the iPod/iPhones are the best at music and video. I don't need a PSP and the iPhone 3GS has a better GPU then the latests PSP. I only want a couple quick games and don't like playing games on my handheld device for too long because I could just do something else.

So if you want a phone/camera/video camera/dam good phone/music/videos/internet/small computer all in one device that easily fits in your pockets then the iPhone is for you. Really it makes life easier.

I will for sure, I tried the firmwire thing first as I've already put a Zagg skin on the phone and that was a huge PITA! I'd rather not do that again if I can avoid it :P So far so good though
