You are in the same boat as I am.
I think the best you can do is find a used iphone and use your current sim in it until your plan expires and that way you will have more clout when renewing!
If you find an extra iphone please let me know as I'm still looking!

That's not really true... an iPhone without a data plan is an iPod Touch and a cell phone all in one, which saves carrying two devices with you.

True, true, but I wasn't nearly as interested in the phone part as I was in the wi-fi part.

My main motivation for iPhone is that, since I'm in university, I can use iPhone/iTouch to access the Internet for some quick references when I get bored/confused in class. I can certainly bring my laptop, but it drains its juice way before I'me done with my daily 4 hours of consecutive classes.

So anyway, I'm pretty much done with iPhone, too much hassle with negotiations and contracts and stuff. When iTouch 3rd gen comes out this fall (if rumors are true), I'd get it instead.

A previous poster who pointed out that the iPhone includes a GSM radio for phone calls makes a good point. The iPhone also has a few other very useful things that the iPod Touch is missing: a camera, a microphone and GPS, all things that do not require a data plan to work. I agree that if you can find a used iPhone, it's a better option than the iPod Touch, unless the new one being announced next week has a camera and a microphone. Those are quite handy. Having a phone built in is nice too. And it will work with any existing Rogers or Fido SIM after jailbreaking and unlocking which is trivial these days and has virtually no risk.
