    Default iPhone-less for 30 days!!! YIKES!
    I am in Canada and was very happy to see that the iPhone is finally coming here.

    Once I heard on the yesterday that we would be getting the iPhone on July 11, I quickly put my iPhone on eBay and sold it for $460.00 while I could (poor bugger must not have heard the news).

    Now, here I sit, iPhone-less for a month!! Damn that sucks, but at least soon, we in Canada will have legit iPhones, with visual VM and the whole shebang.

    I'm sure it will be worth the wait...until we find out what Rogers data plans are like LOL.

    I wonder if the Rogers stores will have line ups on release day?

    Well that's what happens if you don't wait. For me it was a good thing I waited since I was going to get a normal iPhone but waited for the 3G one, yay

    There will probably be pretty long lines considering not only is the phone affordable now, it is now carried officially...

    I'm thinking the same thing. Good thing there is a Rogers store only about 5 minutes from my place. Maybe go by at midnight or 1AM to see if I am up against lines forming that early or not.

    Store opens at 10AM, so I was thinking of going by again at 5-6AM on my way to work for a quick look-see. Fingers crossed.

    Haha I sold mine too, and for the next month I am using an old flip phone with a screen that works one out of every 30 flips. Imagine going from an iPhone to a portable touch tone phone with no screen... no texting, no caller id, no call log, no time or date, no calculator, AHHHH!!!!! only 30 more days haha

    Well I havent sold mine yet, I am going to wait a week or so. I feel like I could get $350 easy for my 8gb. Reason being because no more of them are being made and the new ones wont be unlocked because of the in store activation. So I think the demand will go up.

    Looks like Rogers is going to keep the same pricing as everyone else...which is GREAT. Now we just have to see what the data plans are like. Below is an email I received from Rogers.

    "Thank you for taking the time to write to us, we appreciate your use of online customer service.

    In your recent email, you have informed us that you would like to know more information concerning the launch of the iPhone.

    We appreciate your interest.

    Rogers is pleased to announce that the iPhone will be available on the Rogers Network on July 11th, 2008. The iPhone combined three products into one small, lightweight device- a revolutionary touch screen, mobile phone, a widescreen iPod, and a world class data devise for web browsing-mail, search and more.

    The new iPhone will operate on Rogers? High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) network ? The fastest mobile network in Canada. HSPA is nationally available in the top Canadian urban centres from Vancouver to Halifax, covering more than 60% of the population. The iPhone will also operate on Rogers' coast to coast GSM/EDGE network, proven to be the country?s most reliable wireless network.

    At this time, there are no further details available regarding the overall launch of the iPhone including retail availability and functionality.

    The tentative pricing for the iPhone is the following: the 8GB model at $199.00 on a three year contract and the 16GB at $299.00 on a three year contract.

    Please be assured that more information, including retail availability and up to date pricing information will be available soon. Continue visiting Rogers Communications - Wireless, Digital Cable TV, Hi-Speed Internet, Home Phone for updates."
