    3cents/kbyte ... there is no reasonable data package available from either rogers or fido.

    I am sure rogers/fido will offer a reasonable data plan when it will be available... but right now... it's insane.

    I hooked up to the internet using my fido a couple of month ago... and I tried a "speed test page". result... my invoice end up being 360$ (290$ data)

    If you absolutely want the iphone right now... Maybe the logic solution is to ask rogers/fido to "disable web access" and use the phone as a phone ... and transfer files/photos/music using wi-fi.

    Maybe you have a better idea ? I live in Montreal, I too want a reasonable solution... YESTERDAY!! lol.
    i have 200MG data plan for $100 i think it will be very good for email and maps, maybe a little web too

    Live in Canada. Picked up an iPhone over the weekend and activated it with a US number. Sweet device! Using it in Canada for data + iPod. If it gets hacked I'd love to throw a Rogers chip in there but not if I'm going to get slaughtered on data fees.

    Any thoughts?

    I was reading and believe that in the plan you get unlimited data in Canada and Mexico?

    Is this correct?

    I assume you went on the $59.99 plan? But how did you get that without a SSN and a US address???

    I am planning on going across the border to activate it on a US phone. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

    PS: I'm in Toronto.

    I, too, would appreciate any advice. I could always use my grandmother's SSN (or would that be considered fraudulent?), and the company I work for has US offices, so I can always use one of those. Ideally though, I'd like to activate it on PayGo or whatever so I'd get a US phone # for when I travel to the States, then unlock it one day and use it up here...

    I believe the iPhone works only on the Pick Your Plan option under GoPhone. As for using your grandmother's SSN... Why not get her to create the entire account under her name? This way, there is nothing fraudulent about it.

    GoPhones do not work up in Canada.

    Just got my iPhone today. WOW! It is gorgeous. I'm with Rogers in Montreal and am hoping for an unlock in the near future.

    In the meantime it will serve as my iPod and Internet tablet.

    Montrealer here too. No go with Fido SIM cards, but I haven't tried Rogers. It definitely needs to be unlocked. I would happy just having it as a regular phone + wifi, without EDGE. EDGE blows anyways.

    I was out walking near atwater market yesterday and it took me all of 5 minutes to find an open wifi access point to check my email, so I'm not too worried.... plus Ile Sans Fil is ever-expanding

    For those of you that live in montreal, can you do this test with your iphone use the original 3g sim card that it came with and make a 911 call, to see if it works and when they answer just hang up or tell them you miss dialed , I want to know if rogers network supports this call with the 3g sim card, post your results here thanks.
