BREAKING: iPhone in Canada Announced by Rogers!

Wow…I have some HUGE news everyone. The wait is finally over! I just got off the phone an hour ago with my Uncle who is a Marketing Manager with Rogers back in Toronto and he says the iPhone being anounced in Canada today! The announcement will take place at 12:00 EST, and immediately the iPhones will be available in store. They have been keeping the entire campaign under wraps, hence the silence we’ve observed all this time.

Also, a new combined monthly voice/data plan will be launching just for the iPhone. It’s going to be called the Rogers iPhone Monthly Plan (umm…how original). The following might change, but he mentioned it will include the following:

  • Rogers iPhone Monthly Plan:
  • $75/month + SAF/Taxes
  • 500 daytime minutes
  • 6PM evening and weekends
  • Caller ID/Visual Voicemail (wow!)
  • Unlimited Data Plan on the new 3G handset!!

Anyways, this is just a huge announcement by Rogers! I never saw this one coming–maybe the Great Canadian iPhone Petition had something to do with it? Anyways guys, STAY tuned to the online forums and the newscasts for the breaking news! I’ll be counting down for sure! =)

    I just pre-ordered 6 phones myself from my local Rogers. They are willing to give me credit for the last 6 months service for placing this order. Each phone has to be on a 10 year contract… but hey, it’s an iPhone… I will be using this for the rest of my life, so I figured 8 years per phone… 6 phones… 48 years worth of iPhone and I’m only locked into a 10 year contract on each! Sweet 🙂

  • No wait, it ISN’t an APRIL FOOL’s joke. It’s real!
    Also, did you know gullible is NOT in the dictionary?
    Really! You must check it out- it just ain’t there.
    And further-
    I heard this rumor-
    Vonage is going to partner with Fido and IBM so that everyone can have free world-wide VOIP and Canada will get it first. It will use first generation Atari code. Coca Cola to finance it.

    OK, who’s kidding here …

    You need that phone in canada and I need a new Ship with all the fancies a Bilionnaires like me wants. In order to acheive that goal I need to sell that phone in Canada. And you guys just don’t cut it! You are’nt putting enouph pressure on Rogers to accept my proposed Deal wich is fairly simple!

    1. Unlimited data and calls for 40 buck (canadian money is good now).

    2. That Rogers president use my IPhone as his personnal phone.

    3. That all of you Canadians declare Me as your God!

    Now is’nt that reasonable ?

  • The country that is closest to the States still doesn’t get the iPhone. Where almost every continent overseas gets it. Canada, oh Canada. What a shame.
