i've got an iphone on the way from the states and I've been weighing my carrier options (albiet limited) and am curious as to what carriers and plans ehmac members have gone with.

I'm leaning towards fido's 25$ student plan. It has unlimited incoming, evenings and weekends and 150 anytime minutes. The only downside seems to be that if I decide I want to add data to my plan down the road, fido doesn't exactly have the best rates. But I've heard good things about their reliablility.

student phones has a 25$ fido plan, but as mentioned by Mirkrim, it's more like 35 after the extra 7 dollar fee and taxes. Also, fido charges you extra for options like call display, text messages and voicemail. they bundle these, but still...I'm looking at 25 for the plan, 7 for fees and another 11 for voicemail, call display and they throw in 50 text messages a month (not something I really use, but nice to have the option).

The only downside perhaps is that I've heard that rogers voicemail works as visual voicemail on the iphone, but not so much with fido. and perhaps it's cheaper to go with rogers if after all the extra fees with fido the plan comes to 36 plus the extra 7 bucks. Also, if I decide that wireless hotspots aren't enouhg and I want a dataplan, fido is ridiculously expensive compared to rogers. perhaps Rogers bears further investigating.
