    Does anyone think that the iPhone could come to Canada after Macworld? :)

    Why after MacWorld?

    Jobs said iPhone will launch in Canada the next time a Canadian team wins the Stanley Cup ;)

    OUCH!!!Very funny!!!:D No real proof just hopeful. I love and hate my unlocked iPhone. Hate that I cant update the firmware but love the iPhone so much that I cant live without it. Much like a wife:D lol

    Hehe, couldn't resist when I saw you're from Edmonton, I'm from Vancouver.

    Yeah, I'd love the iPhone to come here with AT&T type plans unlike the scraps that Fido and Rogers throws to us. I read that the new iPhones come with firmware 1.1.2 and can't be unlocked so I guess I'm stuck waiting ... now with firmware 1.1.3 coming out it seems Apple has the upper hand on hackers.

    *laugh*

    I say blame Roger's monopoly on the GSM network (they own Fido), the lack of Canadian consumer protection against such monopoly and their questionable practices (ex: Roger's internet throttling vs advertisements), and Roger's expensive data plans.

    If anything, I have a feeling Waterloo's RIM has something to do with it.

    Stanley Cup eh? Anaheim had more Canadians on it than Ottawa did last year, lol does that count? :p

    I'd be guessing that if it doesn't come at Macworld I'm giving up hope. Someday I dream of a country that doesn't charge $10 per kilobyte of data.

    Macworld 2008? or 2009?

    1.1.2 can be used with StealthSIM....

    I gave up on this happening, and also have an unlocked iPhone. On balance, it is better to have a non-upgradable iPhone than not have one at all, but would really like to have it in Canada, especially when release of the SDK starts bearing fruit.
