    Looks like the websites have been updating with the "coming soon" page... however no pre-order information is available, makes me think there wont be one. Looks like they are doing the 6GB/$30 as well.

    I do have a couple of questions for you all on Fido/Rogers.

    Given that I want to get the following, any idea what my cheapest plan would be on either carrier?

    - 6gb/$30
    - Visual Voice Mail
    - Approx 250-300 texts

    Thanks for all the help, gunna be my first iPhone! 32gb white I think.

    This is what I get a Fido currently

    250 + Unl.E/WE + Unl. Incoming 45.00
    iPhone Value Pack+VVmail 15.00
    Internet option / 6 GB 30.00
    9-1-1 Emergency Access Fee 0.50
    System access fee 6.95

    I think the texts are included in the data... I can't remember. I know I've only been dinged when I get a premium text.

    So in the end, I look at an avg of $98 - 100 a month.

    This was the best I could do, I think.... this is without the extra fee's gst etc.

    Voice/TextPlan: $35
    - 350minutes
    - evenings / weekends (starst at 7)
    - unlimited texts
    - no system access fee

    Data Plan: $30
    - 6gigs

    iPhone value pack: $10
    - Call Display
    - Visual Voice Mail
    - WhoCalled

    $75 before fee's... looks pretty solid to me, although if I could do a 3gigs/$15 that would be wicked.

    Rogers was about $10 more expensive, and you got less texts I believe... Think i'm going to go with Fido.

    I'm on Fido too, and you can jimmy that plan a bit to save some cash.

    Call and get them to put you on the same plans, but the "new" versions of them ... you can save the $7.50 on 911 and System Access.

    My plan is

    $25 Student My 10
    $15 iPhone value pack (VVM, 2500 text/picture msgs, caller ID)
    $30 6GB

    $86 after taxes plus my $10 credit, $75 :)

    iPhone 3G S line up

    Since there won't be a preorder system, how long do you think line ups will be for the iPhone 3G s in stores? & How many phones do you think stores will get? Can you tell I'm excited?!?! :D

    anybody know what the deal is with upgrading to the iPhone 3Gs through rogers is yet?

    i called last week and the woman said i have to pay $699 for a 32GB version and i won't be able to get it launch day because i have to buy it through the lost/stolen plan, where they send it to my house. this sounds wrong.

    i called today and the person said nothing is certain yet - they may announce something prior to June 19th where an early upgrade fee will apply (something like $399/$499 for current 3G owners).

    what have people been hearing?
