    Now that the software unlock is available, Im assuming there are some Canadians out there who are using the iPhone (and probably loving it)

    So, how was the unlocking process? Are there any Canadian iPhone users out there on the Rogers network?

    Im buying my 8 gig iPhone on friday. Im hoping to unlock it ASAP. Any tips for a noob? Was the unlocking easy? Was it frustrating? Post your experiences here...

    I did a Hardware unlock, works great on Rogers. Really smart phone features.

    I am on Fido right now, on a simple voice plan with no data plan. What will happen if I try to access the web or stocks or whatever on an iPhone when there is no wifi? Will I run up huge charges on my next phone bill?

    Yes, except for the fact that I think you need EDGE-specific settings inputted for it to work.

    I'm up on Rogers, right now on a pre-paid SIM card. I'll be transferring my full number from Telus in the next few days.

    I'm using a SW unlocked iPhone on Fido. I'm one of the lucky few with the now extinct unlimited data plan. Works like a charm.

    There should be plenty of Canadian iphone users and even more probably soon.
    I'd suggest leaving the edge settings blank and not pluggin in your providers edge network so you dont rack up huge bills. The iphone draws data like crazy, stay with the wifi for now unless you find a good unlimited data plan.

    So it's possible to tell the iPhone that there is no EDGE to access even when there is? I was worried it would detect and start using it automatically, leaving me screwed.

    How did you unlock it? Do you have a walkthrough? I really want to unlock mine when I get it on friday.
