    Thank you for all the wonderful information you keep us Canadian updated with. I have a unlocked iphone 1.1.1 and it works well with a Rogers sim card. Thanks again

  • jan

    tried upgrading to the wireless 1.1.3 break on my 1.1.1 and it was put into RESET mode with a beautiful graphic of an ipod/usb cord. After smoothly going through all the steps (1st x 4 me) of the 1.1.1 reset, I got an error msg that anySim 1.1 couldn’t work with my Fido sim. Put my blank Fido sim in, did a cold reset. Reinstalled 1.1.1, got an error msg. Then put my Fido back in, and MAGIC, it worked. Don’t know why, but it’s been fine since. Not moving out of 1.1.1 EVER again.

  • Denni Danieli-Polloni

    Great site! Just got my iphone working and have a Rogers SIM card in – I saved my contacts to the Rogers SIM before moving it to the iphone, is there any way to have the iphone read the contacts (telephone numbers and names) on my Rogers Sim over to the iphone?
    THanks

  • Geo

    Thanks a good question Denni. I’ll look for answer.

  • Geo

    OK< try sync-ing it with Outlook first.
    That may be the only way.

    BUT…try looking in installer if you have it. There might be a program there.
    That’s all I got for a quick answer.

  • Graham

    A big Thank you for your advice on how to jailbreak and unlock from 1.1.1 to 1.1.4. It worked flawlessly first time.

  • Doug Robertson

    Graham: I have an IPhone 1.1.1 and would like to upgrade to 1.1.4. My question is do I take my Rogers Sim Card out before doing the Ziphone OSX upgrade, any other tips would be appreciated.

    Thanks Doug

  • Tim Aucoin

    Anyone know if the iPhone falls under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)?? I’m headed to Florida next week and want to bring back some phones, but don’t want exceed my limit if it’s not.

    Thanks for any help.

  • Andrew

    Hey,
    I bought an unlocked iphone 1.1.3. I was going to upgrade to 1.1.4. Does anyone know if this upgrade is the same process as upgrading from 1.1.1/1.1.2? Do you have to unlock again?
    Thanks

  • iPhone Fan

    Yes, you will have to unlock again. Follow my post on unlocking 1.1.4 with ZiPhone. 🙂

  • Nebukadnessar

    Hey, i dont know if you’ve noticed this, but i just saw a 6 min video (modmyiphone.com) of the iphone 2.0 firmware. the video shows more international keyboards including…. you guessed it French (canada) at 3 min and 50 seconds.That to me is pretty strong evidence that we’ll get the iphone in canada by june!

  • thatguy

    Tim –

    For NAFTA to work the product must be made in the USA and typically customs would liek to see this label although “they may” take your workd on it, The iphone box says “Designed by Apple is California” & “Assembled in China” So it most likely depends on the customs agent you get. Tell them it is made in the USA and they might exempt it! I ordered a few through a relative in the states and they came from CHina to USA then they sent them to me. On 2 16gb phones I had to pay $17.60 tarriff charge to FedEx which in turns gives it to canada customs. This was based on the relative writing down that it was a gift “cell phone” valued at $200. So Im guessing that each phone if claimed at $500 would incur around a $8.50 per $100 so around $42.50 tariff (i think thats that FedEx called it) per $500 phone (current price of 16gb phone from Apple)

    Hope that helps a bit.

    that guy

  • thatguy

    just restore to 1.1.4 on itunes then unlock only once with Ziphone..its a very easy process. ask me if you need help

  • thatguy

    use simport from installer..works great

  • Tim Aucoin

    Thanks for the clarification. That does make sense! The question I have been asking myself is; “is assembled the same as made?”!! You’re right, it depends on the agent I get. The most I can bring back is 10 anyhow. When I called the store, they told me they limit sales to 5 per person. Hopefully I can get some 16GB versions (when I called, they were out of stock). Either way, it’s a good deal and I know I can sell them here (or gift them) quite easily and recover my costs.
    Thanks again for the reply, I appreciate it! 🙂

  • Trevor Griffith

    I need a cooler looking springboard. I’m currently at 1.1.4 and I am not able to get summerboard working for any cool themes. My home screen is the plain old one that comes with the iPhone. I can download summerboard no problem, but it says “inactive” at the bottom when I open the app.

    Can anybody help me? I would like to look at something cool and different that this boring screen.

    Thanks,
    Tgriff

  • april fools

  • MikeG

    Does the installer cost money to download things if i don’t have a data plan?

    Thanks,
    Mike

  • Sooruj

    I just wanted to know if I can just go into a Rogers Wireless store and get a SIM card from them??????

  • Tim Aucoin

    Yes, you can just get a SIM card from any Rogers store. You do have to get one of their plans, but you don’t have to buy a phone. You can go month to month, but it’s much better value to go with at least a 1 year plan.

  • Scott

    can any one tell me how to delete a icon from my home page.

  • Josh

    Rgarding SIM card.

    Rogers store wanted to sell me one for $40 but the SONY store has them for $10 and they will sell them to anyone -no phone or plan needed. I activated on my rogers account with no problems.

    Cheers.

  • Jean Major

    HI,
    Ok I wanted to conect my iPhone with Fido but they can’t because I need a IMEI code from a Fido phone. For them to be able to access my file they need this code so that I could have internet on my iPhone. Otherwise than that they can’t have accesss to the program because it does not see that what I have is their phone. Could someone give me a IMEI code from one of their phone from Fido and it has to be a Canadian phone. To be able to have this number take your Fido phone and enter the following *#06# and it will give you your IMEI code, this is what I need..

    Thanks

    Jean

  • Andrew

    to scott you cant delete the preinstalled ones but ones you,ve put on yourself you have to touch and hold an icon and they will wiggle and have an x but you can go to parental controls and take the ones you dont want on and take them off the home screen. they wont be deleted but they will be off your home screen.

  • Rafal

    Rod Harlan has an interesting take on that and the price comparison between the iPhone 1.0 and iPhone 3G. Can you imagine Rogers data plans now, mooo money! Vision Plans or bust.

    http://www.dvconfidential.com/tips/iphone-3g-still-more-expensive-than-previous-model

  • Networx

    WOW! We crashed your server!!! Sorry dude. It was an exciting two hours yesterday and the forum made it that much better. Hope you get everything resolved soon so we can all start hashing out the “issues” that are bound to crop up with the iPhone being a Rogers product. I want one but am afraid of how badly Rogers is going to reem everyone for the iPhone. Hopefully they have to play by some rules set down by Apple or I might as well keep my BlackBerry/iPod Touch combo. Curious to see the charges for the MobileMe service and if it will work with our corporate email system, First Class. Lots more questions but I’ll wait until the forums are back up!
    Cheers!!!

  • noneofyourbusiness

    Why not just use ipod touch for free unlimited data, and continue to use your cell phone.
    My virgin phone costs me very little on pay as you go.

    well, maybe some of us don’t spend all day at home to get wifi or want to carry 2 devices everywhere!!!

  • Tim Aucoin

    You know, at first I was “upset” at no unlimited data plans in this announcement. But then I went back to my last two months usage and compared. I took the 3 month unlimited data promo that Rogers offered me back in April to “test” my data usage on my iPhone. The last two bills were 22.5MB and 49MB usage. I purposely did heavy Edge usage in order to “maximize” the hit on data. I e-mailed, google mapped a ton, used downloader lots, sent and received photos, etc… etc… Maybe not so much as you “power users” out there, but plenty for what I need for home & business. Considering that the lowest plan Rogers is offering is 400MB of data, I’m all giddy about it!!! I’ll likely put myself and business partner on either the 750MB or 1GB plan and be quite happy with it. No complaints here! Come on Visual Voice Mail!!!!

  • Andrew

    to tim yeah mabee it wont be that bad but the fact is for most people they will need a lot of data and you said you were going to go on the 750mb or 1gb plan but for 70 dollars in the us you get unlimited and way more minutes and 200 texts. and another thing about wifi. it says unlimited in rogers hotspots. whats a rogers hotpspot. can anyone clarify for me?

  • Fatima

    Hi,

    I’m having problems with the photos slideshow function on the iphone. It worked fine since I got the iphone in March, however for the past week or so when i tap “play” it shows 1 picture and then jumps to the homescreen where all the icons are. So basically I see one photo for a few seconds.

    Help please 🙁

    Thanks!

  • Rob

    Looks like Rogers and Fido sneaked a change to their evenings start time.

    Rogers was from 6pm, now it is from 9pm
    Fido was from 5pm, now it is from 7pm

    Sneaky

  • Excited about winning your contest! Have you sent me an email yet? Sometimes my spam filters are overly enthusiastic. 🙂

  • Parren

    Hi, can anyone tell me why it costs to go on the internet with the iphone 3g but not for the itouch? Thanks.

  • Rob V

    Any idea of the upgrade path for current “gray market” iPhone users in Canada?

    Will we be able to upgrade in iTunes and lock to Rogers?

    Will we be able to upgrade like we did for 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 and then be able to buy apps in iTunes?

    I have seen lots of coverage for people wanting to buy the new iPhone, but I would sure like to see an article or two on how the new iPhone 2 system affects current unlocked users.

  • Apple pulls iPhone from Canadian Stores!

    Apple, disgusted with Rogers Wireless for dumping egregious service plans on would-be iPhone 3G buyers, has decided that its Canadian retail stores will have no part in helping the carrier market the new handset to customers, AppleInsider has learned.

    As a result, Canadian Apple Retail stores won’t be selling the new 3G touchscreen phones come Friday, representatives for the Cupertino-based company said during a private conference call on Monday evening. Instead, it will be up to Rogers and its partner Fido to lock subscribers into steep 3-year contracts that require a minimum monthly payment of $60 for just 150 minutes, 75 text messages, and 400MB of data.

    Calls to Canadian Apple retail stores early Tuesday confirmed the move once over. Although the majority of the of stores contacted by AppleInsider said they were still unsure whether they’d be selling the new iPhone, one representative ultimately confirmed that Rogers and its partner stores will be the only place to buy iPhone 3G come Friday. Canadian Apple retail stores will, however, have demo units on hand the same day.

    Rogers can lick our cracks!!
    Asked whether the decision not to sell the iPhone was a result of Rogers’ poor service offerings, the representative would only say that: “We have nothing to do with the service plans. Those are Rogers’ plans.”

    Word of Apple’s abandonment of in-store sales comes just days after the company was reported to have sanctioned Rogers by diverting a significant amount of Canada’s iPhone 3G shipments to Europe as initial retribution. As a result, the Canadian carrier will likely receive only about 10 to 20 units per store, and therefore should “exercise caution” not to promise ample stock on launch day, people familiar with the matter have said.

    Apple’s knee-jerk reaction is believed to have been further stimulated by public outrage on the part of Canadian consumers following the release of the local pricing plans. Always concerned with its image, the iPhone maker has watched nearly 50,000 of its loyal customers sign an anti-Rogers petition at ruinediphone.com, which has in turn sparked hundreds of potentially damaging reports on the matter by bloggers and members of the mainstream media.

    For its part, Rogers in official statements has attempted to justify the cost of its service and data plans by arguing that the “majority” of international iPhone carriers have capped data. As such, a spokesperson said Rogers believes its plans to be better than those of Orange France, for example, which include a 500MB ‘reasonable use’ limit versus the 2GB maximum on the top-tier Canadian iPhone plan that fetches $115 per month.

    “Unlimited plans could end up costing customers more for what they don’t use,” the spokesperson said. “Our iPhone plans more than accommodate the vast majority of customers.”

  • Rafal

    Rogers should not be comparing plans with France as it is a different market as their Euro is worth more. Compare our plans with our neighbours in US with same dolloar ratio. US AT&T is getting more bang for their buck than us here in Canada. Rogers can freaking kiss my ass as I will not buy their iPhone 3G as I am happy with my existing iPhone.

  • Tim Aucoin

    Actually, Apple never did plan to sell the new iPhone in the Canadian retail stores. Since the day the phones were put on the Apple.ca website, Rogers & Fido were the only two locations available to purchase the iPhone.

    I think this whole thing is being blown way out of proportion! I agree, the plans from Rogers really suck, especially compared to the US. But, there are a lot of complaints from our friends to the south regarding the service they get from AT&T (just google it and you’ll see). Are we getting screwed… YES!!! But, we’re not alone. I honestly don’t think all this hype is going to cause Rogers to budge one bit, and I think if anything, Mr. Jobs would find all of this quite interesting, if not amusing. Apple and Rogers are doing exactly what they planned… CAUSING MASS HYSTERIA AND HYPE over the iPhone 3G. Look now much press this phone has gotten (FREE) over the last couple of weeks. People will line up for these phones… probably even more so because of all the hype and press.

    I hope I’m wrong. We’ll see in just 3 more sleeps!
