Do i need my rogers sim in before i jailbreak it and unlock it?
Or can i jailbreak and unlock with the at&t sim in and there and then later place my rogers sim in. thanks.

Mitch

When you jailbreak the iPhone, you're giving the device the ability to run third-party applications. That's a process that is entirely separate from unlocking your iPhone so that it will accept a SIM card other than AT&T's. If you are running a jailbroken, unlocked iPhone in the US, it's going to roam and connect with whatever local provider it can find.

By the way...you can save quite a lot of $$ by purchasing a roaming plan from Rogers before you go stateside. That way, you specify who your LD carrier will be for calls and you get a substantially lower rate. *But* you have to buy it before you go and time it so that it gets added at the start of your billing cycle (and removed before the end of that same cycle).

Rogers raped me a few months ago when I used my phone in New York for a few calls... had at least $60 in long distance (@75 cents per minute).
Actually it wasn't Rogers...unless you specify your LD carrier while roaming, you automatically pay whatever the roaming company wants to charge you. That cost gets passed to Rogers who then bill you. That's why you are better off to pay for a plan in advance, keeping it only for the duration of your travel.
