    Rogers bringing iPhone to Canada

    CATHERINE MCLEAN

    Globe and Mail Update

    April 29, 2008 at 8:37 AM EDT

    Rogers Communications Inc. said on Tuesday that it has reached an agreement to bring Apple's iPhone to Canada, a move that promises to bring more growth to its cellphone business after the unit posted a 16 per cent revenue gain in the first quarter.

    Rogers is benefiting from its position as the only cellphone carrier in Canada that uses the world wireless standard, GSM. As a result, it collects most of the revenue from people who use their cellphones when abroad and from visitors to Canada. The company is now the first in Canada to get its hands on the iPhone, which runs on GSM and has already been launched in the United States and Europe. Rogers didn't give any further details about when it will launch the iPhone here and at what price.
    Granted that most of us have iPhone's already running on Rogers... now we'll be able to get iPhone 2 without having to worry about unlocking it.

    Rogers may have the iphone but seriously this data plan is gonna be crazy expensive it took Apple and Rogers to come to an argreement for like a year thats way to long, everyone in Canada already owns iphones we just now may have a service where we can get data plans from. I seriously think though it wont be unlimited internet.

    Wish it is unlimited data plan

    I saw a Rogers employee said one of the reasons that iphone cannot come in CA is the limited data plan.

    Ya this plan is going to be exspensive I was reading the newspaper today and Rogers himself said this phone isnt for the average consumer the plans are going to be atleast $100 + so im assuming plans will be more in the 125-150 range and I DOUBT it will even be unlimited internet .... anyway ill stick with my fido plan if thats what rogers plans to charge what a rip off in the us 59 and for us 100+ give me a ******* break!

    Hey there experts, riddle me this...
    Can't you disable the EDGE network usage altogether, and rely on Wireless completely? Or would that render email, internet, etc. completely useless?

    I'm new around here, just trying to wrap my head around my iPhone possibilities...

    Well there is another way without downloading any software to your iphone. Simply call *811 and say "Customer Service" lol
    Than you can tell them to disable the internet on your account. Thats it. On my IPhone it says cannot connect with EDGE when I'm not connected to Wireless Networks. Simply I wont use Rogers Interent because it is 15 cents per KB. Are you ***** kiddin me? fuk rogers.
