    That should get you along a bit better than the previous 4MB plans.

    FOR SURE in my opinion. Considering all the coverage the crappy plans have gotten.

    This will definitely make a few more people happy (although I am sure people will still complain). My faith in public complaining has been restored. I wonder if Apple will look at selling the iphone in store now (because from what I have heard they weren't going to in Canada).

    get ANY voice plan for $30 dollars and it beats the 150minutes plus you get 6GB of data for $30

    I think you can make your custom plan a bit more,
    Considring that it costs 100$ for 6gb and most expensive Iphone plan is 115$ for 2GB

    so a lot of users can add the

    30$ -6gb Data plan
    11$ - caller Id + Voice Mail
    25-35$ - Decent Voice Plan (either My5+5 or unlimited incomming etc)

    ----- + System fees and 9.11 and Tax ---

    Over all can make this a better bundle :)

    You'll probably want to add caller ID to that.

    Can you add the data onto any plan that is greater than $30? I initially thought the voice only part had to be more than $30 but if it is the whole package (ie adding on texts, voicemail etc.) that is good.

    Wow, only $67.45.. I would love your plan! I wish AT&T had unlimited text for $10 and I don't really even need the $30 unlimited data plan that's required.. I've only used 2GB of data over the whole 12 months I've owned my iPhone.

    My plan is a whopping $119/month. I get 900 minutes, and unlimited text/data.. text plans in US are outrageous.

    well normal customers only get 2500 texts for $10 but if you threaten to cancel Rogers they offer Unlimited for $10 Dollars to keep you on...

    Also the $30 dollars for 6GB can be added to ANY VOICE PLAN...

    so you get a voice plan for $20-?

    questions

    folks, let's not get too excited just yet ... we have no confirmation of the following:

    1) can iphone "value packs" be added onto a voice plan + promo pricing (6 gb) package or will iphone users be forced to the lower value, regular "value" packs that have up to this point been available for other phones?

    2) is visual voicemail included with this $30 data "promo"?

    questions, questions ... although this is now looking more promising for canadians ...

    This is great but only before August 31st? That sucks since I won't have one by then, seriously Rogers just give it to everyone no matter what.

    Check that, Canadians ... visual voicemail will cost $8/month extra ...

    http://www.electronista.com/articles/08/07/09/rogers.6gb.iphone.3g/

    IMO, this is what I expected -- a half-@ssed move by Rogers to try and take advantage of the Canadian public and "calm" the public outcry.

    Keep the pressure on, people!
