    I sent Rogers an e-mail a week ago, and finally got a reply... Nothing groundbreaking, but it does say they are talking with apple and that they will get it...

    Read it for yourself below.

    the 'Contact Us by Email' service on Rogers.com.

    In your recent email, you have informed us that you wish to inquire when
    the new Apple iPhone will be available through Rogers.

    On Tuesday, January 9, 2007, Apple announced the unveiling of their new
    iPhone, a combination mobile phone/digital music player/camera

    " The iPhone will first be introduced in North America
    " AT&T is the only wireless carrier to launch the iPhone in the
    United States

    " Rogers is actively working with Apple to launch the iPhone in Canada
    as soon as possible and will be the exclusive provider of the iPhone in
    Canada

    " Apple is planning to introduce the iPhone in Europe (Q4 2007) and Asia
    (2008)

    " Please be advised that Rogers will be offering the iPhone exclusively
    in Canada

    " Launch date and pricing for Canada are not yet available

    " Other Canadian wireless carriers will not launch the iPhone, Rogers
    will be the only Canadian wireless carrier to offer the iPhone

    To learn more about the iPhone, you may visit www.apple.com/iphone.

    Unfortunately we are unaware when new products and services will be
    released until they are launched to the consumer market. We suggest you
    visit www.rogers.com/phones because when new products are released they
    are listed here.

    It is... why would you doubt it? This is the same form letter they have been using to reply to people with since January. It's all over the net from many different people posting it.

    No offense to the original poster, but there is nothing new here. They have been sending this email out for 9 months now. Notice it says nothing of release dates.

    I am not convinced that they are going to get it, to be honest. Sure, they are the only GSM network in Canada, but there is no way that Apple is going to agree with their outrageous data plans. Until Rogers gives on that the iPhone ain't coming to Canada.
