    Upcoming iPhone on Rogers....date?

    Any idea when we can expect the new iPhone to arrive for Rogers?? My blackberry is on its death bed, and I can't wait to kick bell in the knackers....Are we expecting simultaneous release courtesy of the leaks or are we going to have to wait for no reason at all?

    And are we going to get boned with a 3yr only subsidy? If the phone were to be purchased without contract is there any decrease in the monthly bill, or is it the same?

    The earliest you will find out a date is going to be in 1 week on June 7.

    It will almost certainly require a 3yr contract for a decent price but I don't expect the pricing to be much different from what you see today though you will get more bang for the buck. (eg the top model now is 32GB but the next version your top model is certainly going to be a higher capacity but likely the same prices as today)

    And if you do not take a subsidy you still pay the same prices for your plan though you can often negotiate a better retention deal if you sign a contract but do not take a hardware discount.

    We think everyone should be able to afford a wireless phone. That's why we were the first wireless company in North America to offer pay-by-the-second airtime, and why we don't charge an activation fee. NO scary contract to sign. Immediate national coverage. And a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Yes, it's finally time to get a wireless phone.

    I have about $250 worth of FutureShop gift cards. Will I be able to buy the new iPhone there even if I'm already Rogers customer ?
    (I think I'll pay full price anyway since I got my 3GS only few months ago)

    I've always wintered this question. I did some thinking and and figured since it's billed to you it's impossible to pay for it in stores. If your a new customer, or buying it outright you shouldn't have a problem using them at all.

    i hope they'll let us buy it outright. I just signed a 3 yr contract in december, so i cant sign another one for awhile.

    i wonder if it was done as part of a way to try to ... help? with inventory issues or if canada was jsut such a small market? or it having 4 providers for it was more of a hassle

    Think they'll offer "early" HUP again?

    Bought my 3G late August '08, with 3 yr contract.

    Also, will they let me renegotiate my retention, if I resign?

    It looks like the iPhone is on the way out, what a joke.

    1 The video chatting joke, nobody will use it
    2 No 64 Gig
    3 Oh boy iAds !!!!

    The display and battery life are the only two things I like, but not enough for me to switch.

    July works for me, because I will not pick one up
