The standard apologies if this is a repeat but i've searched for a while and can't see anything but the useless "Canada 3GS thread" which basically is a lot of folks asking "are you gonna buy it?" and "I dunno, are you?" This is intended to be a more helpful thread. I have some questions, similar to other people and they haven't been answered yet. If anyone knows the answer or has any other good questions, please add them to the thread. If all you want to do is show off or make some personal comment about your "feelings," or have lots of interesting theories you want us to hear about, please use the other thread. Also, if all you want to do is go on about the price of the thing, then please also use another thread. I already know I want one, I am just looking to gather information so I can go about it in the smartest way possible. If I have to pay full price I really don't care, it's only relevant if there is a cheeky method for *not* paying full price. Just whining about the price is a waste of time. PS - I'm gonna say "fido" a lot, just substitute their other name "rogers" if that's your carrier. So my questions are: 1) buy it at a fido store, or can we buy it at Apple store? (to be preferred) 2) buy it at Wireless Wave or some other third party? (always to be recommended over going to fido store if the Apple store is out of the picture). 3) can we buy it online? 4) can we pre-order it online? 5) can I give my old iPhone to my partner or is it locked to me forever? 6) Anyone hear even a glimmer of a whimper of a rumour about "family plans?" (can I get a deal for owning more than one iPhone per family?) 7) (the most important question of all!) If I buy an iPhone 3Gs from some other source (new not hacked or cracked or sprung from jail), can I simply take the sim card out of my current 3G and put it in the 3Gs and can fido tell that I did that? I say 7 is the most important, because if fido is going to make us pay close to full price for the upgrade (extremely likely at this point), then it would make more sense to buy one from the Apple store at full price and just swap the sims. This is really the fairest and most straightforward way to upgrade IMO but I am pretty sure that the evil combination of Apple and fido will conspire to disallow this. I'm reasonably sure that the answer is "no" on all of these, but a few of them fido and Apple have been silent on, so I'm asking. Anyone have any real info on any of this?
