    There is a scheduled review on wireless business in Canada in 2008. Of course Rogers and it's little lap dog Fido are doing their best to lobby against any kind of deconstruction of their monopoly.
    Can I sync my iPhone to my Newton?

    I always get an error when EDGE takes over from WIFI, and I thought that meant it wasn't working, which made me happy so I left it alone...
    If you do not have a data plan you have nothing to worry about

    Anyone use Gmail with their iPhone? I get about 10 emails a day and send about 5. Is that enough?

    And Lardnapkin: 200 emails a day...the iPhone's mail app is horrible for managing those amounts of email messages. How do you manage to delete/set to read for all of them?
    I have set the phone to check mail every 1 minute. I read/delete as needed

    Do you use your company's mail servers (i assume pop)? I use gmail personally and my company uses the corporate-branded gmail. Gmail supports pop but I'm wondering how good (ie. efficient...can't waste bytes on Rogers) it is.

    I don't have my iphone yet...friend is coming back from Dallas with mine next week.

    I do have a data plan, I was using a blackberry. I have no connection to Edge on the iPhone and show 0 usage in my settings. I think ill cancel the data plan regardless cuz i dont really need it now and I don't wanna wait until my bill arrives.

    The problem is that I in graphic / web business. I usually get emails with attachments.
    doc, pdf, Jpgs (5+mbs) , photoshops(10mb+)...
    There's no option to tell iphone not to download attachment by default.
    Any way around it?

    I just laugh at some of you dummys that even bother to PAY for data plans in Canada. And we will probably never see an unlimited data plans around here in a while. I'm sorry. That's just how Fido/Rogers is running things.

    What do you pay???????
    25 ($34 USD) for unlimited data. E-Plus, Germany.

    Unlimited means, they begin to cough if you use more than 5 GB/month two months in a row.

    I love how you call other people dummies when you're the retard that never subscribed to a DATA PLAN in the first place! If you don't have any data plan, turn off your edge settings.. Otherwise you will get billed at $0.05 per KB, which is like $50 per megabyte. So while you're paying $50 per Mb, we're paying $80-100 for 200 Mb.

    Yes, we're still getting charged insane amounts, but if you're going to walk around with edge enabled you might as well reduce your rate.
