    Hey guys. I'm just wondering what kind of plans every one around the globe has for their iPhone? I got this before we had 4 different providers competing with iPhones. Are we getting a crappy deal up here? Here's mine from Rogers Wireless in Canada:

    200 Weekday Minutes
    Unlimited Eve/Wknd Minutes
    6PM Early Eve. Calling Option
    Unlimited calling, text message and MMS to 5 chosen contacts
    Unlimited on network nation wide roaming

    Data Service Plan - $30
    6 Gigabytes
    Tethering Access

    iPhone Value Pack - $20
    Visual Voice Mail
    Call Display & Name Display
    Unlimited Send & Receive Text Messages

    Pans between the Canadian providers are pretty identical if you add all the options. The differences between the providers seem to be what the base plan comes with. Bell's also seem to be a bit higher then the rest due to still having the 7$ a month System access fee. I was quite shocked that bell or telus didn't offer lower plans to start with to bring in rogers customers.

    Problem right now for the Bell/Telus people is they have no HSPA network at all in Saskatechwan (so only option would be to roam on rogers) and very limited Manitoba and Northern ontario coverage. They used to use Sasktell's towers for Telus's coverage in Saskatchewan but they are still CDMA. So that is a glaring weakness of the network till they get towers built there.

    But I am assuming you pay the system access fee and 911 fee on top of these prices? So that adds some more the how much your actually paying.

    Ya the systems access fee is $7 and the 911 surcharge is 75 cents.

    Using 3 Hong Kong

    $30
    800 minutes
    900 intra network minutes
    500MB internet w/ tethering

    $5 for 200 SMS plan
    $2 Visual Voicemail
    $2 Data cap (unlimited Internet after bill exceeds $50)
    $1 MTR fee (to fund the tower extenders that are inside the subway station or sth)

    Total is $40 USD. Paid $250 subsidized for my (factory unlocked) 32gb.

    I feel lucky- my total monthly plan price isn't too much higher than what some of you pay for your data plans. Not to mention the price I paid for the phone itself is cheaper than some other people =P
