    We have no iTunes video content here (no tvshows/movies)

    we have no iPhone!

    and we have more expensive products cause the us/cnd exchange rate is high...so things here are way more money!


    APPLE HELLO? CANADA

    No shows on iTunes Canada until government resolves copyright issues.

    Blame Cdn carriers for lack of iPhone. When they can offer data plans like the US the iPhone will come.

    The iTunes video issue is because of the Canadian content laws here,it's our governments fault not Apple to be honest.

    Not having the iPhone here is because Rogers screwed it up for themselves.They tried to play hardball with Apple and Apple just said see you later.

    Apple vs Canada is making me hate my Country.

    pisses me off so bad.....

    Ya I wish there was more Content on the ITMS...but whatever.

    but the lack of the iPhone while people literally 45 minutes away are having a good ol time....I think I snapped a few weeks ago. I don't want the iPod touch...feels like sloppy seconds.

    I'm on Rogers, I actually signed up for Rogers two years ago cuz I knew the iPhone would eventually come out, and I wanted to be ready and sign up for the only carrier that would have the iPhone. Well everything panned out, except for my faith in Rogers....:rolleyes:

    My contract runs out on new year day.....if there is no CA iPhone by then, i'm just gonna not have a cell phone anymore...People can f'n Email me..

    Now that the hack is out, and an Iphone can be used with Rogers, I am trying to figure out what the data plans are for Rogers, and I have no idea, their plans are confusing as hell. And what happens if I use the iPhone on my current Rogers plan, because I don't have a data plan....that seems to me like the only way to avoid having a massive phone bill...wish I knew someone that is using the iPhone in CA after the hack

    Couldn't agree more, quigleybc. The federal gov't has to step in and slap the CRTC around a little. Carriers in Canada have been getting away with blue murder for far too long. It took a long and arduous campaign by Virgin just to get us to have transferable phone numbers. Who gives a **** if cell carriers remain in Canadian hands? Open up the industry and let in some competition.
