    I pay for a data plan, and don't have a problem with it.

    I just got it before Fido got rid of it, but I still have it on my account.

    We had it once, how do we get it back?

    This is wrong. Somewhere in roger's EULA there is a section that says data transfer is at $0.05 per kilobyte and that adds up.

    I was on the Couples plan with the SIM I put into my phone, without any data transfer mentioned in the contract. When I talked to the rep last night, he said without contract, you get charged this.

    You really have to talk to these people carefully!

    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.
    You're an idiot.

    Changing the EDGE settings to jibberish was the very 1st thing I did as soon as I got the damn phone. And why would you need to 'turn' it off when EDGE settings are set to Cingular/AT&T settings out of the box. And if you're getting that Edge error when you try to browse a site then that means it's not working in the 1st place.

    Dummy..

    I just tried to get Rogers to match the Telus $100 / 1024 MB plan (http://www.telusmobility.com/on/busi..._100_pda.shtml) and they said they couldn't, since they don't have a 1024MB plan. So then I tried to get them to give me the 500 MB / $210 plan for $100 and they instead gave me $30 / per month credit on my $100 / 200 MB plan...

    FYI. Times are changing.

    RE: Rogers Data
    I have both Rogers and ATT plans, my US plan [post-iphone] is +$20 for unlimited iphone data, visual voicemail and 200 SMS (above vanilla voice plan) - that's a different universe [comparitively] to $80 for limited data, rape-me over usage fees and hang myself roaming charges.. my American roaming was $0.015 p/Kb in Canada and $0.02 p/Kb worldwide.. Roger's would have to stoop to common human decency levels to match that.. Seeing as they're possibly the worst SP on the planet in that respect, and Apple would never sign their loyal customers up for extortion-centric services I can't see it happening...

    Just a thought: It's not that absurd to drop a CDMA chip in place of the GSM radio.. sure its a different fab run manufacturing-wise however they may not be producing the EU phones in the same factory runs as the US ones anyhow.. meaning a CDMA iPhone is certainly not impossible, just unlikely unless Telus can really sweeten the pot for Cupertino.

    God I hate Rogers -

    Dude, go throw yourself off a bridge or something. You're the most useless person on this site.

    The only types of messages I see from you is you trolling around calling people names or complaining about how much Rogers' sucks, etc etc. You're posting about how you got raped by Rogers' and calling other people idiots, yet everyone else was smart enough to get a data plan (or keep their mouths shut).

    And before you randomly post someone else's image, you might want to clarify it isn't your own. Even right now you never bothered to clarify that the data usage image wasn't your own, and you're like "Why would I turn off EDGE settings? I never turned them on to begin with..." Realize that not everyone on the Internet is going to try to keep one step ahead of your stupidity.

    First off:

    You must be related to Stevie Wonder if you were blind enough to realize that the picture obviously did not come from me but a user named "kurrent" that JUST made the post and included the picture in his thread about receiving his phone bill from Rogers with the ridiculous data fees he was hit with. And you REALLY need to re-evaluate your life if you're catching feelings from the "name calling" you see on message boards. Like why does it concern you. Tell me. Like come on, how old are you? Just ignore it. At the end of the day there are some pretty illiterate folks on this board who are uneducated and I feel that it's my job to really school some of the folks on how shit works over here in Canada and how much Rogers and Fido will RAPE you when using data on this damn phone.

    At the end of the day, just don't be an idiot and put Fido/Roger's EDGE settings on your damn iPhone, start browsing then complain when you're hit with a $500+ phone bill like you didn't know it was going to come in the first place. Nuff said.

    And _imthatguy_ basically said it best:

    It's actually borderline stupidity. What did you think was going to happen? No data plan to speak of and you surf around for a month. This is the kind of behaviour Rogers is banking on. For the love of Jebus, disable your EDGE settings, or buy the 10MB for $10.

    While I agree that Rogers is gouging customers, they didn't force you to buy/unlock/use a phone that essentially lives on data, and then NOT sign up for a plan that at least included a few MB's.
    Dummy's..

    And if you have really feel you need to reply again 'cj', just go ahead and PM me.
