The other thing to note is that BB data and iPhone data are 2 different things and are not interchangeable. You could switch your SIM but you will only be able to use "phone" features. No email or internet.

The plan costs are similar in cost to what I pay now. I pay $85 for 4MB, 500 minutes and unlimited after 6pm and weekends with 1000 long distance minutes. My bill will stay pretty much the same but will get WAY MORE data!

I still want to know what they will charge for the phone without a contract...I also want to know how this will work.

My Telus cell phone bill....

$25 - 150 weekday minutes, unlimited 6pm evenings & weekends.
$15 - unlimited e-mail and IM
$15 - unlimited data (note: excluding tethering, streaming (no YouTube), and VoIP (no Skype) so really I only use 80MB because of those restrictions)
$15 - unlimited text messaging, voicemail, call display

Price including SAF, E-911, taxes = $87.02

Rogers....
$60 - 150 minutes, unlimited evenings and weekends, 400MB of data I can use ANY WAY I want, voicemail.
$20 - virtually unlimited text messaging, call display, early evenings.

Price including SAF, E-911, taxes = $98.22

My cell phone bills have always averaged $120 a month so this is really no shocker to me. Those of you used to paying $40/mo for the absolute cheapest plan because you really don't use your cell phone that much... yea I would understand why you're shocked by all this. Just get an iPod Touch...

iPhone 3G for me!!!

My lack of faith in Rogers has been rewarded.

Way to prove all the haters right Ted.

disappointing. I thought Steve Jobs made sure all carriers would make available a unlimited data plan as a requirement.

Is all hope lost? Or is it possible FIDO will come out with an unlimited data plan?

To those of you don't like it: Have fun with your prepaid phones and get an iPod Touch.

Awwwww....shoot!

Man!

With these rates...seriously took a little wind out of my sails....was hoping for unlimted data, guess I am not surprised. It is Rogers.

Still gonna get the phone, just disappointed I have to watch my data usage. That sucks!

Guess it could be worse.....

Wonder if someone will create an App for the iphone that allow you to measure your usage and warn you if you have reached your limit?

Fido plan is there too, and it mirrors Rogers. Apple has no say Rogers is the only game in town, unless Apple releases a CDMA phone, it's basically Roger or Rogers(Fido).
