Not sure what is the best.
Right now Rogers and Apple are stuck on the unlimited data plan.
So, if you don't have that... I couldn't care less what plan they have,
it's just not good enough.
Bug Rogers for this plan and who knows, if enough ppl kick their asses,
they might do it. I will switch to any company that will sell the iPhone
with the unlimited data plan and Apple won't go for anything less either.

Ask for the 1G PC card plan (65$) if you want to use EDGE (without worrying about getting a $7000 bill).

The rest depends on your usage (minutes, sms, etc.)

I had a rep call me because I am a "valued customer", and wanted to give me a "better" plan (for which I had to sign up for another 2 years). They were unable to come up with a significantly cheaper plan with respect to data, even though I stated I probably only need 200MB per month max.

Okay, so you ask them for 1GB mobile pc card for $65....and that transfers over to the edge access on your iphone? sorry...i'm a bit confused here.... :S

Not the mobile PC card.

Just the $65 per month mobile PC *plan.* For $65 per month, you get 1GB of data, per month. On top of your voice plan.

Sorry for the sidetrack but I feel really bad for Rogers customers paying 65$ just for 1 gig while I can can download, surf, tether and stream unlimitedly for $15 a month with Telus

If I were you I would just go pay and talk for now for the iPhone and wait for the official release of the iPhone on rogers because they will have to introduce an unlimited data plan to promote the iPhone... similar to what Bell did with the introduction of HTC touch.

I am a rogers dealer I will try to keep you updated.

I've been wondering if it was possible to go pay and talk with the iPhone. So if I buy a phone in the states would I just have to unlock it and then go buy a pay and talk sim card from Rogers?

Any additional information about how to do this would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Andrew

Yes its possible. Couple of my University friends did that and they are all kool. Just get a rogers SIM card and call in to activate a pay and talk account. All you will need is the SIM number I believe.

One other thing. you will also need a pair of good scissors because you will need to cut a smal square on the top right of the rogers SIM card because it is a different shape and side as the SIM card that goes in the iPhone. i THINK. I saw it on some youtube video but I can be wrong about that.
