The antenna issue is only when you don't have a case. Try it without the case and you will loose reception. Though I think you would be a fool to not have a case with the vary fragile phone. So the antenna problem is not a problem at all.

I left Rogers because of that. See they do have stock. I have witness people waiting in line and existing customers told it is out of stock but a new customer got one. That pissed me off and I left them and paid the stupid $450 cancellation fee.

I'll hit the mall up soon and jump store to store to find out who has the best long distance/data/Cdn Forces discount combo available

Contact someone at your work. I pay $22/month for 250 minutes, unlimited evening weekends, unlimited text, unlimited incoming, voice mail, call waiting, and a Bell rep comes out to my house once a week to do my laundry.

I pay an extra $25 for 500mb data, which is alright, but I have seen better data. The package as a whole is good though. A government plan btw...

I'm with Bell and I really have to leave. The reception in comparison to Rogers is terrible here. Not sure what other carrier other than Rogers carry's there receptive territory. I got until May anyway so plenty of time.

Well there is Roger-Fido (same company) and Bell-Telus (some company). So there really are only 2 choices if you want the iPhone 4.

I'm thinking of Belus, quite a few people around here have their service and are very happy with things thus far. I'll probably hit Kingston up next week since I'm expecting to pack and move within the next month once again; gives me the perfect reason to ditch rogers and grab someone else's service.

A bit off topic, but did you find out about a family move yet?
