My question is... is it legal for a company to force you to sign up for a data plan at time of purchase? What if I just want to use WiFi!!!!
Why do people think that a company can not sell their service/product for their terms?

Owning a cell phone is not a right, just like driving.

It is their plan, their terms, for their price. Don't like it go to another company and stop complaining.

I'm with you. If Ted R. tries to rip me off on the iphone deal, then I will be off to the US in a second and will have a friend down there buy it for me.. sign up, pay the ecf, and unlock and jailbreak (when one is available).

Gazette story is wrong. Those prices are for other devices, not iPhone. iPhone pricing still hasn't been released. Talked to Rogers PR this a.m. (working on a story about impact of iPhone on data rates).

Did you talk to Liz Hamilton? I think she's getting annoyed with my constant questions.

First off, I am not complaining whatsoever.. and there is no need to be rude. As far as I know, when you purchase a smart phone now you aren't required to sign up for a data plan, so I was just wondering how a company can somewhat force you into doing that if you only want to use WiFi.

If there were other carriers you could take it to, than I can see why all the complaining but since you can not use it anywhere else, stop
Exactly right...contract or no contract is irrelevant. You'll be paying for the service anyways. Unless you plan on going back to carrier pigeons for communications, chances are you'll still be using a cell phone. Might as well save the money and go on the contract.

ofcourse they can "force you". Theres no LAW against it. The Terms and Conditions of the Sale are specified upfront. You buy this phone, you need this particlular plan. Plain and simple.
The reason some phones dont have this requirement is that they need to sell more units, so change the marketing to allow for more sales.

There will be the odd person who gets the iphone, pays the $400 + $100cancelation fee and chooses to use a non data plan (another SIM)
It will cost a good part of $700-$800 to have this luxury though

To me, it's not a big deal because I'm going to have a phone anyway and a cell phone is more of a privilege than a right. If I want to cancel the contract for whatever reason, I'll pay the ECF because it's not much more than what you would pay for the price of the phone without a contract.
Finally...real talk.

My favorite rum...from the homeland. Watch out though, it's a killer.
