[Advice] A Canadian in america...need data plan.
Hey guys, hopefully you guys can lend some expertise. I haven't seen anyone really in my situation so here goes.
I live in Ontario, Canada. I want to pick up an iPhone and unlock it. No problems here.
The situation is, I will be touring USA in a band for 30 days. I don't really care for the phone aspect, but I want the email/messaging/internet.
The options that my research have found.
1) Use rogers canada and pay $65 unlimited data plus international roaming data charges of 5cents a kilobyte ($128 for a video clip) - no thanks
2) Get a ipod touch and use a wifi plan like boingo or Wayport (wifi in every mcdonalds ain't bad, but its 30-50$ for only certain areas...not so good when moving on the road)
3) Unlock phone and use a data only plan (doesn't matter from who)
4) get a sidekick, i can do prepaid 30$ for a dollar a day unlimited data usage
If I unlocked the iphone, who can I get a unlimited data only plan for use in America - for only one month (so no contracts)? I've heard about tzones but thats an addon for tmobile customers only. is there a blackberry plan that will work on the iphone that can be bought in one month or pay as you go? I don't care who I'm with, At&T or Tmobile or whoever else will work.
Last resort, I'll get a sidekick, but it is bulky, looks lame, no third party apps, and doesn't even have video playback, and will instantly become useless when I'm in Canada.
Thanks for the help guys.
