Rogers/Fido To Release iPhone 3G “S” June 19, 2009

As was announced at Apple’s annual WWDC event, the new iPhone 3G “S” will be released in Canada June 19, 2009! ITS FINALLY HERE! Check out the fun TV ad!

Rogers and Fido

Both Rogers and Fido will be releasing the iPhone 3GS on Friday June 19, 2009. That means you have a little over a week to get all of your launch stuff ready and get to your local Rogers or Fido store!

rogers_logofido

I anticipate lines will be much smaller this year mostly because everyone who bought on iPhone 3G on July 11, 2008 will have to wait until atleast July 11, 2009 to upgrade again, unless Rogers and Fido pull a fast one and change that policy. However, if you did not get an iPhone 3G last year and are eligible to upgrade or are a totally new customer to Rogers/Fido, then you will be able to get the iPhone 3G “S” without a hitch. In any case, you can bet stock will be short, so get there fast and get there early!

Pricing

The iPhone 3G “S” is coming in a few different flavors but will keep the existing 3 year contract pricing of $199/$299 so long as you have a voice plan that is $30.01 or higher, regardless of any data plan option (you don’t even need to buy a data plan to get the iPhone 3G “S”). The prices below will all reflect the requirement of a voice plan that is $30.01 or higher. If your voice plan is $30.00 or less, add $50 to the price.

With either Rogers or Fido, you will need to sign up on a 3-year contract to be eligible for the iPhone 3G “S” and choose an available voice or voice and data plan. You can check out the available Rogers plans for June 2009 here.

New Rogers/Fido Customers

Once you have your 3 year contract plan chosen and a voice plan that is atleast $30.01 or higher, check out the list below for prices for NEW customers:

  • 16GB iPhone 3G “S” in Black or White – $199
  • 32GB iPhone 3G “S” in Black or White – $299

Current Rogers/Fido customers

If you are a current Rogers/Fido customer, most of you iPhone 3G owners will have to wait until atleast July 11, 2009 or later to upgrade, which will mark your one year into your contract. However, if you did not buy the iPhone 3G at all or are eligible to upgrade, then you can get the iPhone 3G “S”.

Current Rogers/Fido customers more than one year but less than two years into contract

If you are an existing customer and are going to be more than one year but less than two years into your contract by the time the iPhone 3G “S” is released, then your pricing may look something like this:

  • 16GB iPhone 3G “S” in Black or White – $299 or more
  • 32GB iPhone 3G “S” in Black or White – $399 or more

The reason you pay $100 more is because you are only one year or less than two years into your contract term and your accumulated discounts are not high enough to enable promotional pricing.

Current Rogers/Fido customers two or more years into contract

If you are an existing customer and are going to be two or more years into your contract by the time the iPhone 3G “S” is released, then your pricing will look something like this:

  • 16GB iPhone 3G “S” in Black or White – $199 or less
  • 32GB iPhone 3G “S” in Black or White – $299 or less

Is it worth it?

If you watched the WWDC keynote, the iPhone 3G “S” is mostly made up of minor upgrades such as a 3.0 MP camera that now includes video recording and autofocus. For more details about the specifications, check out our Apple WWDC roundup.

Considering the upgrades (partial feature list here and at Apple here) to the iPhone 3G “S” over the existing iPhone 3G, will you be updating your iPhone to the 3G “S”?

    Uhm…again. I’ve called Rogers and checked several forums about this topic. How did you figure out that because I bought my phone last year in August all I have to do in two months is to drop 100 bucks more and get the iPhone 3GS?
    Awesome news if it is true? But is it???

  • Prices vary between customers. That why I said “may look like”. To check for sure, visit your local Rogers/Fido, but dont be surprised when the ask for $100 more

    According to Rogers, an iPhone can only come with a 3 year data/voice contract…three years is too many for me because I move around a lot and if you move out of Canada, then you still have to pay the cancellation fee.

    Has anyone gotten an iPhone with less than a three year contract from Rogers? I wonder if I bought an unlocked phone from a local retailer and activated it through Rogers would be a viable option…

    Is video recording a hardware upgrade or software? I can record video with cycorder so isn’t video recording a 3.0 feature not a 3GS feature?

    Funny how when you call Rogers they have no idea as to what they will be charging, who will be eligible, etc… You’d think that pending the announcement (which they obviously knew about), they’d get all their ducks in a row and be ready for the influx of phone calls they’re getting from now till June 19th!! Way to go Rogers!

  • From my understanding, Video recording is only available on the 3G S. The iPhone needs that faster processor to do video, so I don’t think it will be available on the regular 3G. We’re stuck with Cycorder.

  • Heh, the funny thing is – Rogers likely does not get incessant phone calls about any other model of phone, so they might not have necessarily anticipated that. I doubt any other device they offer gets the same kind of vocal demand at such a consistent high rate. Of course that’s mostly speculation on my part, but when the iPhone 3G release makes national headlines for its huge popularity/demand… my comment is probably not far from the truth. 😉

    I don’t want to wait untill July 11, I would rather buy it outright and stay just under 1 year into my 3 year contract. I wonder if they’ll let me do that? I don’t care if it’s 7 or 8 hundred bucks! I NEED the 32 gigs of space. Otherwise I’ll have to fire up a new contract and cancell it when the new phone arives. Likely cost me 800 that way anyway. Sure hope they let me just buy it outright.

    although I’m happy they improved the camera, I’m surprised/disappointed its not improved to more than 3 MP. With many regular phones now coming out 3.2MP and more and more phones coming out in the 5-8MP range, I’m a bit surprised apple didn’t bump it up to at least 5 MP in keeping with the iPhone being “the only device you’ll ever need” type mentality.

    Are you sure it’ll be available in Canada? I called Rogers and asked them. They said it’s only for US and there is NO RELEASE DATE for Canada yet. Also on their site and on Apple’s site, it doesn’t mention anything about a release date or prices for Canada.

    I did see your links, and also on Apple’s site it also says Canada is getting it. But it doesn’t say we’re getting it on June 19th. That date is only for US according to Rogers. They haven’t decided when it’ll be released in Canada. 🙁

    I’m hopeful I can do what I’m planning. I currently have two cell phones on my account, mine with an iPhone 3g and my son’s with a regular flip phone. His account is eligible for upgrade. I plan to get the iPhone 3GS and give him my 3G. I’m not sure if they’ll do it that way or if I’ll have to “officially” buy the 3GS for him and just swap SIMs to get the new one on my number and the old on his, but one way or the other, I’ll get what I want. ;<}

    I plan on using my Product Exchange Plan from FS. No renewal of contract. 🙂

    Buy your iPhones from FS and buy the Product Exchange Plan!

  • Haydees

    sigh… rogers is failing in the info department.

    i have a bunch of plan and purchasing questions but the people at rogers know nothing. i mean we all know its coming to canada they said so at WWDC, we all know its coming out June 19th they said that at WWDC as well. so dont tell us that its only coming to the us.

    the only thing i could find was on the fido site, a little banner that said “new iPhone coming soon” and then if u click it, it take u to apple.ca. which im sure we have all been to. :@ errrrrr

    okay that was my rant 😀

    My situation, question(s), and comments/venting/information:

    I bought my current smartphone (HTC) between 1 and 2 years ago, and I was eligible for an upgrade to an iPhone 3G earlier this year at I think new customer pricing or somewhere around there. A month or two ago I spoke to Rogers on the phone and it seemed like I was still eligible for an upgrade and could now get an iPhone 3G for cheaper than new customer pricing. Yesterday I call and find out that I am actually no longer eligible for a smartphone upgrade because they increased, sometime in March, the wait period from 1 to 2 years on smartphone upgrades. I also find out that what I was being offered the second time for cheaper than new customer pricing was actually a “refreshed” iPhone (a returned iPhone refreshed by Apple), and that I would have to wait for my 2 years to be up in order to get a brand new one. They said they could offer me other smartphones brand new (including the new HTC Google Android phones I think) for an early upgrade as some kind of customer care early upgrade or something, but not the iPhone because of some deal they have with Apple.

    Now, X1Zero, you mention that customers between 1 and 2 years can get a 3G S for an increased price, but Rogers was telling me I can’t get a brand new 3G right now for any price at all, only a “refreshed” one. Do you have info indicating that once the 3G S comes out I can get it brand new (even if for an increased price)? Or is that only for customers who already have a 3G?

    I’m not impressed that their policy change means that even though I was already eligible for a smartphone upgrade at one point, it has now effectively been taken away from me. What they should have done is once a person was eligible that they remained eligible despite the policy change, like when customers are able to keep older plans no longer offered, but I guess it isn’t a flag that is set in their system, but rather just a time period calculation at whatever time a customer wants an upgrade.

    I had the same concern when signing my 3 year deal, when I eventually ended up leaving the country I simply posted on craigslist offering my phone for free to anyone that would take my contract over. I paid the small fee to change over the account and avoided the cancellation fee all together.

    That’s the thing, though. I think last time I was in Best Buy, it didn’t show any smartphones. I think that’s why I called Rogers for that second upgrade quote. Now I see why it wasn’t showing up in Best Buy’s system. I guess I’ll just try again once the 3G S comes out and go from there. If Rogers is saying it’s an issue with their deal with Apple, maybe I’ll have to call up Apple and see from there. Maybe if I complain enough…lol

  • Cycorder and Qik are jailbreak solution to record video with iphone 3g. The jailbreak process make the phone slower and those solution doesn’t provide 30fps, Vga quality. I don’t think they provide editing and sharing tool either (qik is sharing, but the quality is much better with cycorder wich make the process of getting the movie out of the phone difficult).

    I hope this help.

    I think apple give just the right amount of new feature to make everyone want that phone…

    Is Rogers & Fido still charging you $50 more for the iPhone if you get a voice plan under $30.01?

    Thanks.

    Is this possible?

    Go into a US apple store buy the iphone for $99 and get it unlocked to work with Fido here in Canada?

    I don’t want to sign 3 year contracts or a data plan because I’m usually in areas with free wireless like school.

  • $99 is a contract price. So the answer to your question is no.

    Also, as far as I know, you can’t unlock the new iphones just yet. None of the unlocking softwares work with the new baseband on the new phones.

    Does anyone know the iPhone 3G S pricing for corporate plans?
    I’m on a $20 corporate plan since Sept 2007,
    so basically I’m 22 months into my contract (almost 2 years).
    I’m wondering if I could get a 3G S Hardware Upgrade this Friday?

    Because last year, they gave bullshit non-contract prices for corporate plans (i think it was around $599 for 16GB), so I started a new plan with the 16GB for $299 and gave my existing phone and plan to my sister.

    however I broke my iphone within a few weeks of getting it (being the klutz that I am) and Apple would repair it for $400 which is way more than I got it for -___- so I passed with the repairing and right now I’m stuck with a very, very old Nokia phone.

    I really want to get my hands on the iPhone 32gb with my corporate plan..
    🙁

    I’m signing on a 3 year term but voice is under $30 and no data. Does that mean the 3GS
    16gb is $249 and
    32gb is $339 for me?
    Does this sound right?

    I can’t imagine what will be the image of Fido after they have screwed up with IPhone 3G S promotion. I always thought Fido is cheap and service is OK – what else to expect.
    But when I heard about promotion and ordered an IPhone 3G S more than a month ago (they said back then that I’m going to get it in 2 days!), called them I don’t know how many times, was given promises that “next week it will be here etc.”, have been added to “waiting list” (sort of black hole) – I found yesterday that …. MY ORDER HAS BEEN LOST IN THEIR ***** SYSTEM!!!!! So, all that pain I went through is for nothing and I would never get an IPhone….If and only if I would not try to find it myself – I printed out a list of all Fido kiosks/stores and after calling a few and receiving an expected answer – I found one, available right now and without all these “waiting lists”. So, I ran to the store and got one the same day.
    BAD FIDO!!!!!
