lol this is so true!!!!! after having lived overseas for work, in europe, Japan, and the US, i can honestly say that Canada has one of the WORST phone plans in the world, same w/ its internet, the lack of competition and monopolies the big giants have on these markets is disgusting. CANADIANS PAY THROUGH THE NOSE FOR CELL PHONE PLANS AND INTERNET!!! u guys need to wake up!

Bell is offering sharing the data with the iPad for $10 per month. That's $10 cheaper than Rogers.

That's the only way they get customers, cheap price for 3 months and then MORE expensive, and shittier reception/service.
Stay away from Bell!!

Between the iPad and the iPhone4, it great to see our consumers are just as mindless as those in the US. Although you have to hand it to Apple... their marketing approach has been genius. They're the only company I can think of that can feed you garbage and convince you it's a 4-star meal. Then, when someone realizes it's garbage they've been fed, they're outcast as being 'ignorant', or not having a refined enough taste to understand it...

Completely true...billing errors always in their favour and when you catch them ,it takes endless calls for them to finally 'fix' it on their system.

I buy my phones and pay monthly,its cheaper then any contract. A 3yr contract for a phone is insane.

The iPhone's not bad, but I don't see myself paying $750+ for a phone in the near future. I'll stick with my $200 Blackberry Bold.

At least they come unlocked through the Apple Store (not sure if through Rogers).
