    Apparently Rogers has caved in to customer complaints and are now offering a 6GB data plan for 30 dollars. Not unlimited, but great news nonetheless!!!

    Select Rogers Plus stores to open early coast-to-coast on July 11
    Launch promotions to include limited time 6GB data offer

    TORONTO, July 9 /CNW/ - In anticipation of iPhone 3G launch on July 11,
    Rogers Wireless today announced plans to open the doors of select Rogers Plus
    retail stores across Canada in advance of regular hours. Starting at 8:00 am
    July 11, Canadians will be able to purchase the new iPhone 3G at special
    launch day events to be held at six Rogers Plus stores across the country. Be
    among the first in Canada to get the next generation iPhone 3G and have the
    choice of a 6GB data plan through a limited time promotional price offer.
    "As Canada's leading wireless carrier, Rogers is excited to bring iPhone
    3G to Canadians even sooner, allowing our customers to be amongst the first in
    the world to experience this amazing mobile innovation," says John Boynton,
    Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Wireless. "To
    celebrate its launch on Canada's fastest wireless network, we're rolling out
    the red carpet with special events at six Rogers Plus stores and a limited
    time price promotional data offer from coast-to-coast."
    iPhone 3G combines all the revolutionary features of iPhone with 3G
    networking that is twice as fast(*) as the first generation iPhone, built-in GPS
    for expanded location based mobile services, and iPhone 2.0 software which
    includes support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs the hundreds of
    third party applications already built with the recently released iPhone SDK.

    Rogers Launch Promotions
    ------------------------
    The following Rogers Plus stores in these cities will open their doors at
    8:00 a.m. (all times local) on Friday, July 11 for advance purchases of the

    of factors.

    I fail to see how this is a good deal or victory? $90 for the basic plan (w/ 6GB) with barely any minutes and text? Most ppl will get the $75 plan because it actually has some minutes and texts, but $105 with that 6GB. Again, how's this such a major good deal?

    I mean in the UK for for $70 CAN one would get double the minutes, 500 texts and unlimited data. Someone explain how this is a deal?

    Great job on just replying without actually reading.

    The $30 6gb can be applied to any plan. Meaning that my:

    200 weekday
    Unlimited Texting
    Unlimited Weekend/Evening
    Caller Id
    Voicemail

    Plan that costs me $45/mth (including taxes and all that other stuff)

    I can add the 6gb/$30 to that plan and use that on the iPhone. For a total of $75/mth.

    Next time, maybe read the article before simply posting.

    I see, not as horrible as I thought then, though still light on the minutes, but if it works for you then well done.

    If your plan is less than a year old like mine is You can't get an iPhone tagged on to existing plan I would have to get a new "Rip Off Plan" in order to get new iphone.
    Rogers what a bunch of ba$tards ...

    Default [iPhone 3g] Finally reasonable data plans in Canada from Rogers...

    I sold my iPhone 4gb today for $250, not bad I probably couldve sold it for more but I needed to sell it today because I'm getting the iPhone 3g. What was a deciding factor for me was the data plans. Rogers had outrageous price but they "changed" the plans at last minute, I somewhat knew this was all planned.

    Now Im sure I can get "unlimited" data or about 6gb for $30 which is more than enough. So yeah Im getting the new iPhone just for a new toy and there was no other way to get this deal anyway. Canada improved but the war isnt won yet as this deal is not permanent. But i'm pretty confident it will shake things...I hope.

    At least I get GPS and louder speakers lol and a shiny new toy with more storage. The plastic back worries me though so Ill have to invest in one of those invisible shields cuz I hate big and bulky cases that ruins the beauty of the iPhone.

    Anyone else from Canada in the same basket.
    Unlocked iPhone 4gb Sold -> godPhone 3G 8gb
    Carrier: Rogers (Canada)
    3G, Appstore, GPS and Unlimited data (6gb data is more than enough) for 30$! FTW!!!

    Waiting for:

    -GPS app (preloaded maps with voice directions)
    -Video recording App.
