    not true... this is perfect for the masses... just not the hofo masses...

    but seriously for $100 you should be getting unlimited EVERYTHING...these plans are lame but.. $60 is just enough to get people to bite i think...

    Not sure, $60.00 seems a corporate price. They should have tried to have voice+data for $45.00 to $50.00. Anything over $50.00 regular middle income (which in this day and age is majority) will not touch.

    I agree with Nasa25, I sense a ghost town for those plans. You might see a few "suits" go in and get it, thats about it.

    pretty piss-poor if you ask me. I still cant believe CallerID and Voice mail are not std features here like in other countries. Add the $6.95 system access fee and taxes, and the $60 is close approaching $100

    Their plan: $67 + SAF + tax for the cheapest plan and Caller ID... = $3051 over 3 years
    My $23 plan + $30 pack over 3 years = $2563

    The difference is $488, which isn't enough to buy an iPhone without a contract... so I"m going with Roger's plan.. at least that's my initial thought.

    Those plans aren't exceptionally good.

    I was getting 250DT, E&W @ 6pm, CID, VM for $23 + SAF = $30, then adding 1GB/$65 (so now that'd be $60... 300MB isn't enough for me). So I'd be paying $90 + tax (plus the few txt's that I send)

    With the new plans, I'd get the $75 for 300DT, E&W @ 8pm (I'm assuming), 750MB, Visual VM (so I'm guessing VM is free with the packages?? ...it's not listed in the "add-on" packs) and 100 txts. I wonder if SAF is included or not. It'd be a much better package if it was included in the price. The only thing I'd add would be CID ($7?)... maybe early E&W if it's $5. So in total with the package, early E&W and CID I'd be paying $87+tax ($94+tax if SAF is extra).

    So I guess it's around the same price as what I would have been paying in the first place (but with 50 more DT minutes, 250MB less, 100 txt's included, visual VM).

    Verdict, I'll still get the iPhone.

    this is BS though.. why is their a need for a new crappy voiceplan.....my old voiceplan is fine and is compatible with EVERY PHONE and there's no reason it shouldn't work on the iphone.... i'd be happier with a standard (mandatory) add-on data plan.. but i guess they did the their homework and decided this would get the most rapage...lol stupid rogers...

    unlocked, hacked and jailbroken can't wait.. the gray market MUST continue to thrive...

    edit
    i just realized they don't include caller id.. this is terrible....

    I am an apple fanboy...and I will not be buying the iphone 3g! The plans are a ****ing joke!! The plans dont even include caller ID!! Rogers is a money grabbin' crack whore!

    I hope no one buys the iphone in Canada to show Rogers that we won't tolerate unfair data pricing! I feel like they just rip me a new one!!!

    Oh and where is i.Fido??? I said it before...Don't bring me up with the unlimited data $30, only to bring me down!!!!!! Thanks a lot i.Fido, you lost all credibility!!

    Ya.. I'm not getting the iPhone with these plans either. It's not worth it. I'll just go with the BB Bold.

    I certainly won't be switching my 1 gen iphone for this plan. My current retention deal will work for now.

    I'm REALLY hoping that the GSM auction brings in some fresh competition for Robbers. They need a huge slap in the face.

    So much for i.Fido's "news."

    Edit: I've deleted references to the non-existent i.Fido plans, since the reference was causing confusion. Please refer to post #1 above.

    Add me to the list of people NOT buying the iPhone until Rogers decides to stop robbing their customers.
