    I am looking into getting an iPhone in Ontario but I don't currently have a cell phone with Rogers (I use Bell). If I were to buy an iPhone, unlock it and all that, what is the next step? Do I walk into a local Rogers store and ask them to give me a SIM card? (not likely...) Surely one of you Canadian iPhone owners has gotten one before you got a Rogers account.

    I know that one option is to buy a phone and then take the SIM card, but that's going to cost me lots of (possibly unnecessary) money.

    I just walked into the Rogers store and asked for a new account. Told them I had a phone and they gave me a sim (well, for $30) and activated the account.

    Simple........

    Wow thanks!

    That's certainly useful information.

    One more thing I'd like to know is if you needed to get a contract for the account or pay as you go or (hopefully) just signed up for a plan without a contract?

    You can do either. I did the same thing - walked into a Rogers store and asked if they'd sell me a sim card.

    Do they activate your SIM in the store. What about not having a IMEI # of a Rogers Phone? Thanks for the help.
