Kind of of topic. I called Apple in the US to find out info about GPS on the 3G. When I told her I was from Canada she said "Sorry to hear that" I said "Why are you sorry" She replied "I hear you are not getting a fair plan through Rogers" So of course I had to chat even though she technically should have told me to call Apple Canada but she was extremely nice. She mentioned for us Canadians to "hang in there" Of course I had to ask why she would say this and Of course she replied "I am not in a position to say at this time but things will look up and Canada will be able to enjoy the phone the way it was meant to be used"
Anyways you can take the comments how you would like but I would have expected maybe a Canadian Apple employee to have some insight not the Americans..lol. Also GPS so it won't cost an arm and leg can be used without using Data by downloading the maps via wifi before you leave the home/office. This is the one feature I am pretty excited for.
She seemed to "be in the know" about our current situation. Yes this info is available on the web but she either has a fascination with our country or really knows there could be some change to the plans. Only time will tell.
That's true, rumors like this could fuel mayhem and get the cattle to sign their lives off for an iPhone. Like in my earlier rant; if you really need an iPhone then line up and get one. Though after 12months you can look back and reflect if it truely is worth it.
There are rumors everywhere for products like these, I mean who really knows for sure, but one thing that is certain is that its not secret that Rogers seriously needs to change their plans to reflect a more fairer price for the iPhone, but then again their strategy could pay off and see really high demand.
Without an unlimited data plan, this is a no-brainer. If you want to use the iPhone the way it was meant to be used, without worrying about how much data you might have left, you'll be paying through the nose at the end of the month. Are there a lot of masochists out there? Why would you want to do that to yourself?
When Rogers offers unlimited data like the rest of our friends have in the civilized world, THEN it will be a worthwhile thing to purchase. You're a fool if you sign on to what's being offered. A fool and his money are soon parted.
The one thing that Rogers is doing that is decent is to send a text message to the user advising they have used 80% or 100% of their Data for the month. I could potentially see issues though with people not receiving these text messages. I still say give even the first month or two unlimited to see where everyone is comfortable with their data use. From there you choose which plan is right for you.
