    I know Rogers hasn't released any info on the no-contract prices but...does anyone know anything or can anyone speculate on the pricing?

    the no-contract phone....

    if a no-contract phone is offered.... and one does not like the price... would there be any valid reason why one could not buy a phone from the Apple store in the U.S. (since, at present, Apple Canada is not allowed (?) to sell iPhones)
    and then connect it to the no-contract carrier? Why should a carrier have exclusive rights to sell no-contract phones?

    another issue to be resolved: will Rogers/FIDO offer a service plan for a no-contract phone at a reasonable rate? It could even (in theory) be a lower rate than contract phones, since one is not paying off any subsidy.

    But (knowing Rogers) the chances are the costs will be made higher... as a form of punishment for not having a contract. Remains to be seen.

    It is not clear why no-contract pricing is not available now.... unless priority of availability is being given to contract phones.

    I was considering buying the iPhone outright to avoid having to have a 3 year contract but then I saw this on the Rogers site:

    Is the new 6GB/$30 promotional plan available for all iPhone customers, new and existing?
    The $30/6GB will be available to all iPhone customers on both Rogers and Fido brands starting June 9th 2009. Only available on a 3 Year term.

    My guess is they will in fact punish you for not wanting to be tied to a 3 year contract.

    Well, I still have that 6GB of data for 30 bucks for another 2 years. I'll probably keep it until the contract expires and then see what data plans are available at that point.
