    I don't know how reliable this information is, but John Wiseman has posted some info relating to the iPhone in Canada. It'll be with Rogers (oviously - when're we going to see another GSM provider in Canada?), and it looks like they're going to force a data plan with it, which truly sucks. It also looks like 6-8 months after the US release before we see it in Canada. So not the best news for us Canadians, if it's true.

    That sucks. At least it will encourage us to wait for second generation :p

    Thats the truth... I was thinking of one as a graduation present next year... but, not now. I live in the States, but work in Canada often, so I need to be able to swap my Rogers and Cingular SIM cards like I do with my ROKR right now. I'm encouraged to wait. I wish the rumors were true that this phone would be sold from Apple with no plan, and you could do whatever you wanted with it.

    Cool, I use Rogers, but I hate them. I just like my phone number too much to change.

    BTW, what's data plan?

    Can you carry your number over to another provider? (It's a law in the U.S., but I wouldn't know about Canada).

    A cell phone plan that allows your to transmit & receive data along with voice (for web browsing, email, etc.).

    No, we can't carry our number to another provider. Otherwise, I would have changed already. :(

    Thanks.
