    So my currently cell phone the is a piece of crap it drops calls, and a is about 3 years old now.. I really want the iPhone but I live in Canada. I've been holding off on buying a Phone even before the iPhone was announce because I knew it was coming. Well I've waited and waited, the damn world seems to get the iPhone but not us. Should I still hold out as current rumors suggest it's coming soon. Or just give up? Pleases help, I don't know how much longer I can put up with my phone... :eek:

    Patience is a virtue. Better to wait for the official one rather than expose yourself to the hassle of an import.

    That's my view anyway. It's worth the wait as well. I've had mine since day 1 of the U.K. launch having waited impatiently for months. I love it!

    I wasn't thinking of importing, I was just thinking of getting a new "plain" phone... Don't want to, but this current Phone is junk.

    Maybe buy a decent phone on ebay like a blackberry, and resell it when the iPhone comes to canada?

    That's what i did, except it was 2 KRZR's, and only of 3 months of having them, i resold them and only lost about $50, when i bought them both new.

    That is what I could do, I can get a free phone now if I resign my term for 36months. But I don't want to resign, and lets say the iPhone comes out in January...

    I would wait. resign a contract for 3 years? Yikes. Is the norm 3 years in Canada?
    Do you know who is going to have the contract with the iphones in Canada?
    I would go there sign up (hopefully get a free phone) then buy the iphone when it comes out.
    could that be done?
