    Yes you can use an iPhone on Rogers network

    Now There are few places you can get ur iPhone
    1) Ebay
    2) Kijiji
    3) Apple Store in USA
    4) Facebook Marketplace

    now there are few guides online you can search google for them, www.modmyifone.com has few guides how to unlock and jailbreak your phone with step by step instructions

    you wanna make sure that iPhone your buying doesn't have a serial number starting with 7V745xxxxxx or later, the number 45 means it was produced in week 45 and the only way to unlock that iPhone to be used with other carries is by using TurboSim or other Sim Things out there (look them up on google), since it comes with Bootloader version 4.6 and that is currently unlockable

    So if you get a phone that has a Bootloader version lower then 4.6 your good (any phone produced before week 45), all you will need to do is fallow the guide on one of the websites or the one i suggested to you and u will have a fully functioning iPhone that will run on Rogers network

    They will ask for your address in the US and will register your credit card in a database to check if you already bought 2 iPhones. From the apple store you will be getting it with new firmware so you'll need the SIM solution because currently the software only unlock isn't possible.

    Also check this website for step by step instructions on jailbraking and unlocking:

    best bet would be find a 1.1.2 phone if possi me and pick up a stealthsim from iamiphone.ca. very fast shipping and mark is great to deal with.
    I'm not sure if stealthsim works on 1.1.3 though so be sure to pick up a 1.1.2. then be sure to get the mobile Internet package for of cards from rogers -1gb for 65heh..you can work it down though if you deal and junk with them.

    good luck!

    Ok, another question for you Rogers guys. I have a 1.1.2 phone that I have jailbroken but not activated yet, just waiting for the sw unlock although I'm getting a little impatient and may get a ....sim? Any ways, I've been with Rogers for like 15 years and obviously have no plans on changing. What happens when Rogers starts officially carrying iphones. Will I just pull the sim card out and the phone will automatically work and I can just upgrade firmware as I wish without having to worry about jailbreaking???

    thank you

    It may work, and you probably will need to update your iPhone's firmware to the latest one, more likely the one to be released for Canada iPhones and then activate your Rogers SIM via iTunes and you'll be ready to roll.
