Of course not. Do you really think Apple would allow that?

PS Beat you to it! :p

Actually, considering how much I use my current phone in terms of voice, the cheapest plan is actually pretty good for me, at least to start with. I have no idea how much data I'll use.

I would have preferred the option of adding a data plan (unlimited or otherwise) to my current plan, but overall I'm not as disapointed as I thought I'd be.

Honestly for the price of the top plan, it really should be unlimited everything. what is nice is unlimited hotspot access (I would assume this is accross canada)

I might start on a lower plan, i'm not much of a phone talking guy, but data will be needed, especially with my mobileme account.

Oh God, tell me about it. That $15 "value" plan is complete crap. All I need is caller ID, nothing else. I couldn't care about "Who Called" (isn't that what caller ID is for), "Caller Ring Trax" (unless I can make it sound like a British ringer. I love that sound), or 2,500 Call Forwarding Minutes (I've never used CF, never will). 2,500 texts isn't bad though.

WOW, I cannot believe they are doing that, I actually feel really bad for the neighbors to the north. All this time, waiting and waiting to get the iphone in their country and their provider royally screws them over, I hope they change that for you guys.

Well Rogers can go climb a tree. I'm not gonna pay $15 for Caller ID. Guess it will be a surprise when I answer the phone like the old days lol.

Typical Rogers BS though. I got HD TV recently and the website said that you could get additional channels for something like $4. So I called to get TSN HD and the woman says .. "oh .... you can't get that channel by itself .... it only comes in a bundle with 3 other channels for $8".

Damn you Rogers!!!!!

that's terrible. those plans are awful. i'm paying $25 for my voice plan right now - there's no way i'd pay $60 a month!!!!!

i guess i'll have to buy one elsewhere and get it unlocked. *sigh*

($60 + $5.95 SAF) * 1.13 * 12 * 3 = $2682.85

so not worth it.

Compared to US plan, the minutes offered seems low.

Does Canada work like Europe in that received phone calls do not count towards those minutes?

Dang, Rogers really does suck. How is it possible that, in 2008, a company still charges on a per MB basis for internet service?? That is beyond lame.

I kind of wished Apple refused to sell to Rogers without a reasonable rate unlimited data service.

no, unfortunately not. received calls count and most of them are not billed by second. if you make a 30 second call, it counts as a minute.

I'm curious.

Is there an extra text messaging plan you guys can add on? 300 max outgoing is a bit low. For $115 you should be getting unlimited.

Sympathies Canadians, you has them.
