Will It Blend? | Presented By Blendtec

I really have no interest in the gizmo things it does. I just want basic functionality: voice and SMS.

iPhone in Canada Website

People at this site have been getting amazing deals with their iPhones by calling the Retentions Line at Rogers. From what I've read, you just gotta be nice and complain that your current phone isn't up to par of what it was and you need a refresh. You may even be able to waive the cancellation fee. Keep phoning and bargaining them until you get what you want (or at least pretty close). Some people have even been able to get the System Activation Fee waived and also reduce the prices of text messages for monthly credit. Not a bad way to go honestly. I think I may end up doing it soon. but the iPod Touch looks tempting too. I just hate my RAZR V3...

You can do those steps as long as your bill goes over $30.01...that's a really good deal if you ask me.

Belgolas what did you get out of the CSRs? What's your plan?

For that price I'd get a 9xxx blackberry. Assuming that I make at least 70k after-tax, work at statestreet, and able to finance a 250k condo.

I got mine yesterday with the $30 6GB data plan ontop of my normal voice plan. So far so good. This is my first apple product and I love the ability to surf the web anyplace and not worry about charges. The GPS works well and the ipod parts seem to work fine. The apps store is full of stuff but I have found some of them are for US audiences only. I just found a internet radio streaming app (tune) so I can listen to internet radio anywhere (yes, I am well aware that streaming can eat alot of bandwidth). It attracks fingerprints like crazy so I have ordered a couple of cases for it. So far I am loving it.

Well to tell you the truth AT&T's data plan is only 5GB while Rogers is 6Gb. Some people have complained to rogers and got the data plan down to 20 bucks. Yes 6GB for 20 dollars. Also I got free unlimited calling for the first 3 months. Then going with the $35 my five plan. Texting is super easy and is just like MSN on the iPone.

Yeah I will be paying a lot for a phone but it is more than just a phone. My ipod just recently broke so I needed a new mp3 player. I don't have a cell phone right now so I needed one. So I got the iPone instead of having a phone an an MP3 player in my pocket at once. The iPhone is so much more then a iPod Touch. There is GPS, Internet anywhere (Big bonus), camera/video camera, the phone part :p And a phone/ipod all in one.

So I can watch movies in high quality, play music, surf the internet, play lots of video games (there are a lot of companies supporting the iPhone/iPod Touch as a gaming device like EA, THQ Sega, etc, etc) Use GPS when I am lost or for other stuff, Use all the cool apps, nice camera/video camera. and use it as a phone all in one small easy to use package. That to me is worth it and beats any other phone out there.

The 6GB plan is only available to the iphone for 30 bucks. For a regular phone you have to pay 100 bucks for 6 gb.
