iPhone 3G for Canada! Coming to Rogers & Fido July 11th

Editor’s note: Okay folks so it looks like iPhoneinCanada.ca is temporarily back up in the meantime. The shared server I was on was just crippled with a 2000% CPU overload thanks to the sudden spike in traffice after the iPhone 3G announcement. Things will take a couple days to smooth out, but with that aside let’s get on to today’s amazing news!

Here are the first images of the new iPhone, the “iPhone 3G”…thanks to Gizmodo for the first images…

NEW Features of the Apple iPhone 3G:
-thinner, better battery life: 2G talk time: 10 hours (vs old 5), 5 hours of 3G talk-time, 5-6 hours of 3G browsing, 7 hours of video, 24 hours of audio
-Flush headphone jack; scientific calculator (flips automatically in landscape mode); all metal buttons
-GPS tracking; new USB wall charger
-New iPhone color: WHITE
-Pricing: $199 for 8GB; $299 for 16GB (likely carrier subsidized)

According to my WWDC 2008 predictions, I guessed correctly about 3G, GPS, better speakers/battery, black&white colors, and a change in pricing! I managed to listen to the entire live audio feed today, and it was pure pandemonium at the WWDC when Steve Jobs announced the new iPhone!

When Will the iPhone 3G be Released in Canada?

Mark this date on your calendar folks: July 11th, along with 22 other countries (with 70 countries in total)!

It’s interesting to see on the Apple website that both Rogers and Fido will be carrying the iPhone 3G! So it looks like Rogers will sell a bazillion of these units. A new Rogers press release states I’m predicting a 3 year contract for $199 subsidized iPhone. These new units will sell like hotcakes!

Starting July 11, iPhone 3G will sell for $199 for the 8Gb model and $299 for the 16Gb
model, on a three-year plan. More details on price plans and retail
availability will be available soon.

Here’s a brief statement from Rogers: “Rogers has a long history of bringing Canadians the very best in wireless services, networks and handset innovations,” said Rogers Wireless president Rob Bruce in a statement. “With iPhone 3G, we will provide our customers with an amazing mobile experience over Canada’s fastest wireless network.” (thanks Stevie G!)

    Also, something to remember, the $199/$299 have not yet been 100% guaranteed to reflect Rogers pricing.

    Question will be, do you need to sign up for plan when you get the phone, or only when you activate. That is, can you buy at cheap $$$ then just unlock/activate yourself on any network or will you need to sign at purchase like you do now for most phones. Need more details. Also not, it did NOT list apple stores in canada as a place to purchase, so I assume you must sign your life away(contract) when you purchase not when you activate.

    I sincerely hope they have a reasonably priced “all you can eat” data plan – without one the iPhone is crippled. Its probably too late but you can find a petition for Rogers to create such a plan through my blog http://www.drbashour..blogspot.com.

    I hate to burst anyone’s bubble, but i just called Fido to inquire about the iphone. They said apple made a mistake, the iphone is only confirmed with Rogers.

    He said Fido has made no deal or has anything worked out with apple as of right now. I dunno if he is just uniformed or maybe fido has plans to launch the iphone sometime after rogers?

    I dont understand why apple would put up a fido logo if it wasn’t a done deal though.

    Kinda sucks.

    I’m not sure where the subsidy comes in. Nowhere that I’ve seen has stated that the $199 and $299 prices are subsidized by the carriers.

    Rogers might require a 3-year contract when you buy the phone because they’re probably going to tether it to an all-you-can-eat* (*5GB cap most likely) data plan like AT&T did, but that doesn’t mean that the phone’s price is subsidized; you’ll probably be able to buy it unactivated through the Apple Store for the same price without a contract. The Steve stated pretty plainly at the keynote that the price is $199 and $299 USD globally, full stop, no qualifiers.

    will you be able to buy the phone off a plan, for like 399, 499? or do youo HAVE to be on plan?

    I hope Fido will carry the IPhone; otherwise, I will have to switch network and I don’t really want to because I still have the unlimited talking and long distance plan with no SAF for $70 and a nice balance in Fido $ to pay for the IPhone. Actually, with the target audience Fido is aiming at, IPhone is probably more suited with Fido than Rogers.

    Here’s a recent blurb from AT&T: “But now AT&T will pay the upfront cost for the iPhone 3G and subsidize the total cost of the phone by making customers agree to a two-year service contract.”

    Or this: “Phone Atlas has received word that the iPhone 3G will indeed be subsidized by wireless carriers including AT&T, enabling the $199 and $299 price tags for 8GB and 16GB phone models, respectively.

    WeÂ’re not sure yet what this means for the purchase and activation process. Previous iPhones were bought in-store at AT&T or Apple retail outlets, or from AppleÂ’s online store then activated at home. With subsidization, however, activation may be necessary to purchase the phone in the first place, potentially obviating an in-home, iTunes-based activation scheme.”

    So we’ll see. Roger’s put out a press release earlier saying they required a 3 yr contract for the iPhone for $199. They haven’t said whether or not there’s a non-subsidized version available without a contract. I suspect (as someone else said) that they will tether it to the data plan and force a contract.

    No plan price yet… that sucks. I have a feeling that this could be a stopper of the wide Canada iPhone spreading… if it goes for an average of $80 per month as mentionned somewhere… that means that after only 3 months, your $199 iPhone would cost you a $240 of service… $960 for a year and $2880 after the 3 year contract… Sounds a great deal for Rogers.

  • X1Zero

    The $199/$299 prices are subsidized on 3 year contracts.

    The phone WILL NOT be able without a contract unless you have a friend in a Rogers store willing to sell it to you for the full price (not cheap).

    @gray, As I have mentioned to many others at this point, I cannot reveal any details regarding the plans yet. However, I will be able to as soon as we get our iphones for training purposes. That will make the reps trained on all the new plans and iphone features, as well as making the plans public.

    As I have said to others, Stay Tuned!

    (I TOLD you the plans were JUST around the corner) :)

    As a side note, can someone explain to me the decision to make it glossy black? I REALLY liked the aluminum.

  • 11thIndian

    I think that was at least part of the reason. I have heard complaints that signal strength wasn’t astounding on the iPhone, due to the mostly metal enclosure. With the 3G and GPS in there now, I’m guessing Apple was willing to take a hit looks wise to make sure it worked really well as a phone first. Perhaps partly it was also a price consideration. At the subsidized price [and with revenue sharing now gone], perhaps Apple is taking less of a hit per unit with a plastic enclosure vs a aluminum one.

    I guess the only thing I’m a bit disappointed about is the lack of the front facing video camera. Perhaps not something I’d use all the time, but the coolness and “future” factor is undeniable.

    @X1: I was thinking about July 11th and the madness that may ensue. Obviously the best thing to do is not be in a major city or mall store, as those are more likely to be crowded, but is it safe to say that all Rogers Wireless stores will have some iPhones in stock at launch? Driving to my parents place last night I was scoping out what I though would be less hectic locations in smaller bergs.

    Hi,
    I just hate fido… Bunch of retards…I just signed a new contract 3 months ago with this shitty comp. and now because of that customer service tells me there is no way to get the IPHONE with out a new contract… I told them cxl my old plan and start a new one with data witch would cost me double even triple the price… they said no problem yet you have to pay them cxl fees. ( witch was 400.00$ a line and I have 2) ARE YOU F***IN KIDDING ME. He told me he understands my frustration ( because at this point I’m screaming my head off at the rep. after all I’ve been with FIDO for 10 years…) and that he would get a supervisor to call me back in 24 to 48 hrs witch was on the release date. Just received the call this morning, and supervisor told me the same thing… WHAT? ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND? WE’RE ALREADY GETTING RIPPED OFF FROM YOU BASTARDS? NOW YOU WANT ME TO PAY 800.00$ in CXL FEES SO I CAN GET THE IPHONE. Like a retard he proceded to tell me, well mr. white, if you want the iphone that is the only way at this time. WHAT? and again I stress WHAT? This is to show how FIDO/ROGERS is a retarded comp. they will do nothing for a loyal 10 years customer yet for a new cutomer they will bend over and take it up the ***. NO LOYALTY AT ALL. If anybody had the same problems and found a solution besides buying it on EBAY ( Wicth I just did) could you please let me know. Thanx, and again WHAT? =)

    Hi,
    I just hate fido… Bunch of retards…I just signed a new contract 3 months ago with this shitty comp. and now because of that customer service tells me there is no way to get the IPHONE with out a new contract… I told them cxl my old plan and start a new one with data witch would cost me double even triple the price… they said no problem yet you have to pay them cxl fees. ( witch was 400.00$ a line and I have 2) ARE YOU F***IN KIDDING ME. He told me he understands my frustration ( because at this point I’m screaming my head off at the rep. after all I’ve been with FIDO for 10 years…) and that he would get a supervisor to call me back in 24 to 48 hrs witch was on the release date. Just received the call this morning, and supervisor told me the same thing… WHAT? ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND? WE’RE ALREADY GETTING RIPPED OFF FROM YOU BASTARDS? NOW YOU WANT ME TO PAY 800.00$ in CXL FEES SO I CAN GET THE IPHONE. Like a retard he proceded to tell me, well mr. white, if you want the iphone that is the only way at this time.
