    Exclamation Warning! EDGE usage pricing (don't get a thousand dollars bills)

    EDGE/GPRS Pricing in México:

    Movistar

    12 cents (MXN) per kilobyte
    aprox. 1 US Dollar per 120 Kilobytes
    11.184 US Dollars per Megabyte

    I think it is the same for Telcel.

    Do not even think about downloading a song in the new wi-fi store, imagine:

    song $.99 + 3.5 mb download $39 = 40 Dollars!!!

    Please post the pricing of EDGE in your carrier, so people won't have
    to pay a lot of money in their next bill.

    TIM Brazil has a few packages... if you have an iphone you NEED one...

    Regular rates, +/- R$5/mb (U$2.50)

    20mb Plan - R$20/mo ($10 +-)

    and others upto 1GB for R$70/mo ($35)

    The first 6 months are much cheaper too as a special offer, so like the first one is R$10/mo for 20mb for the first 6 months, etc...

    How can it be 512kbps if EDGE doesnt go even close to that?

    They prolly mean that for highspeed devices, could you go on iphonenetworktest.com from your iphone and post speeds to? interesting to see how each network does...

    Unless I'm completely off my rocker (Which could be the case), 0.12 per KB = $122 per MB (0.12 * 1024).

    Rogers in Canada charges $0.05 per KB, but they have "E-Mail" Plans, which you can get 200 MB for $70 (It used to be $100 for 200 MB, but Telus now offers $100 for 1024MB and if you get Rogers to price match or give you the 500 MB for $100, they'll give you $30 credit instead because they're unable to match..)
