    Exclamation [EDGE services] Pricing & Options

    Cool. So finally we got everything working on our iPhone.

    A cool 2MP camera, super nice interface, everything seems to be cool.
    I say everything because there is something I don't like, but it is not really
    from the iPhone.

    This thing is my carrier... Well, you may say, why not change to another one.
    The answer is: this is the best one... But let me tell you the facts.

    Cool, so the iPhone got EDGE and a almost complete browser.
    Cool. Wi-Fi.

    What happens when there are no wireless network, EDGE right...

    So today I call my provider, and ask them about the data plans...
    So here we have. 10.5MXN=1USD

    Unlimited module... ($8.00 USD) Month
    OK, this seemed to cool to be true... You know, here, data plans are a bit expensive.
    So I ask, what can I do with this "Unlimited Module".
    Carrier rep>>> "With this module, you have unlimited navigation in our site"
    WTF!!!!! So I told her that what the hell can I do in their site, browse their expensive
    plan and no more... So what else can I do?
    Carrier rep>>> "Ohhh, sorry, I forgot to say that this module includes 1MB for other
    any other sites..."

    Come on, unlimited data plan for browsing their web page... this is s%$#.

    So she says "Sir, if that does not meet your what you're looking for, we also
    got the pay as you go mobile data plan"
    Here are the prices... (they charge per kilobyte)

    1KB = $.12 MXN ($.01 US)
    SO...
    1MB (1024kb X $.12MXN) = $122 MXN ($11USD)
    SO...

    DOWNLOADING A SONG (4MB) OR A 4MB OF ANY KIND OF FILE
    4MB (4096kb X $.12MXN) = $491.5 MXN ($48USD)

    OK, so $50 dollars for downloading a song!!!
    Well, what can I say...

    So the third and last option... a blackberry data plan...
    $30 month additional to the current plan...

    Well, it sounds a little bit better...
    But yeah, it was too good to be true...
    You can only use it with their own "Labeled" blackberry.
    ......

    So... Is there a way I can use the blackberry data plan with my iPhone?

    I am not sure but I dont think so... Edge isn't the same as BlackBerry, blackberry uses 3G or broadband, Edge is entirely different. So I would have to guess not.


    iPhone "2G" - 3.1.3 - Jailbroken + iPhoDroid
    iPhone 4 - 4.0.2 - Not jailbroken (yet)

    My current carrier does not support 3G, just EDGE and GPRS.
