My System Specs

Default iPhone 3G.

Well my iPhone 16GB black is shipped!

Just call rogers spend the 40 minutes instead of waiting hours inline and then not even get one.

Is anyone else getting the 3G iPone or have an old one already?

Indeed, isn't the contract 3 years with no unlimited data plan as well as huge over-thingy charges on data?
It sucks to say this to a fellow Canadian but... bad move blindly going for bling and name.

The iPhone is a amazing piece of technology and would love to have one. Except for one thing, Rogers. And since they are the only GSM provider in Canada, unfortunately I'll never be getting an iPhone.

Over the course of the 3 yr contract you'll pay out close to $2100.

For a silly phone!

Yep especially since AT&T Wireless in the states offers way better plans for the iPhone. They offer an unlimited Data feature for the iPhone for $30 I believe and $45 for the Enterprise Plan that lets you sync your work e-mail. Not to mention it's only a 2 year contract and you just added to a voice plan, which are way better than what Rogers offers.

I tell ya once you find out what the Americans pay for wireless service, Rogers needs to hand out Vasoline for regular customers and KY Jelly for iPhone customers, cause you are going to need it every month for 36 months.

99% of the people that are buying the iPhone dont even know what features it has. They think it means Cool, therefore they are buying one. Cause their friends have one, and it is Cool. Quite honestly, You couldnt even GIVE me one. If so, I'll find my own variation of WILL IT BLEND, just for the satisfaction of its destruction.

Haha Cptn Vortex if you do your own segment of will it blend with an iPhone please post it here asap! That I have got to see. Anyway there is no doubt the iPhone is a very nice device, but I just can't justify the price. I assume the plans are the same all across Canada, and it isn't just Newfoundland getting the shaft again. But hey if you've got the money and you want it then more power to you. I however will keep that money and spend it on my rig.
