As predicted, the Rogers iPhone packages are horrible compared to the AT&T ones, and downright shitty compared to Europe and the rest of the world. They still won’t do unlimited data, and their voice minutes don’t roll over (use 'em or lose 'em), and they are fricken expensive.
Then they want you to lock into a 3-year contract just to buy the phone.
I predict the grey market will continue to flourish in Canada just like it has for the last year.
I’m gonna get another iPhone for sure, but it will be on Speakout or some other pay-as-you go plan, not on Rogers.

Hopefully the upcoming spectrum auction will bring real competition to Rogers. What we need is European-style mobile freedom, not this constant lock-in and contracts to force customers to stay with you. Competitive companies don’t need to force their customers to stay.
