    I could easily write an essay about price gouging by Canadian mobile providers.

    1. 3 year contracts
    2. $7 monthly access fees
    3. $7 for call display
    4. Ridiculous data rates
    5. Awful minutes per $ plans

    Can't say I'm surprised. The sad thing is Bell and Telus are as bad if not worse and CDMA. Fido's improved but other than the iPhone and Pearl has a terrible selection and you still have to wait a lifetime to get out of a current contract.

    I'm not surprised at all.

    Rogers overcharges for everything.

    Canadian wireless companies are out of control.

    I'm glad I don't have to deal with them anymore.

    Yeah, I work for Rogers too, and I am definitely not surprised by the pricing. At least employees get half off on phone plans...that's SOMETHING, right? :rolleyes: Oh well, I'm still getting my first Canadian iPhone this Friday, gonna ask my manager if he can hold a white 32GB for me, since we do not have pre-orders. :D

    The bad thing about the no contract pricing is...at least for people that are coming off contract or people just joining, they won't be able to take advantage of the $30 6GB data plan, since that is only available on a contract. (If I'm wrong, someone please correct me. Source)

    Yes. And officially, Rogers never gives out unlocking codes for any phones of any brand, ever.

    The last time I paid that much for a phone was in 1996 for my MicroTac
