    So I suscribecd to the 7$ plan whit my iphone whit rogers, used about 10mb of data whit safari ansd youtube, call them to know if there were going to bill me, awnser no, so used another 10mb, called them again, samething not billed, user another 10mb, called again, sir you are billed 1500$ for having used 30mb of data... LOLL they cancelled the 1500$ cuz Ive had called 2 times to be shure... but now im stock whit no edge

    So the fine print was probably right, as we've suspected....
    Hey i'm famous in another thread

    Yeah that sucks big time... BUT... Someone could maybee code a wap browser for iphone (usign wap apn) and then we would be able to at least use wap... I was doing it back in the days to check my bank acount and my stocks.. Ok you can't watch a video on youtube... but you can check your money, online 411 so it don't cost you 75 each time...

    or maybee something that transfert wap request into web reqeust like something that download it in wap and then transfer it to safari !!!

    there is a proxy.pac hack release.
    I change my imei to a old fido phone but i dunno if people using also the proxy.pac to to use wap. But i did call the CSR. like the RAZR2 got full html and that phone doesn't use WAP brower. So I dunno if we have to use the proxy.pac thing or not..

    Guys, I've said this before and will say it again in the hope that some of you will listen and not get a $1000 bill later.

    It's just common sense...you can't expect to get an unlimited data plan (in Canada) for $7. There going to catch on and stop what's happening soon. Is it really worth the risk to be able to download email while your on the road? Just use your wifi.

    I have spoken with the tech department at Fido and they are working on stopping this loop hole, and once they do you won't know it. Then you'll receive a hefty bill at the end of the month. You can call them after, and plead all you want but it will do no good. I know what some of you are thinking well it's been recorded that I asked if I could use an iphone, or I spoke to a supervisor, etc.. is it really worth the risk?? You've used it till now, so maybe take a break and see what happens in the future. There'll be someone who's willing to gamble for us and let us know that they got that huge bill.

    All the best.
