Nope, you walk into an Apple store and buy one. You’re supposed to activate it yourself with iTunes at home. Of course, you’ll have to get one in the USA, as they don’t sell them in Canada.
A lot of different ways to do this. If you’re not technically-savvy, then don’t even attempt it. Get a nerd to do it for you.
Here’s one place:
Switch the SIM with another GSM phone.
For example, you could buy the cheapest pay-as-you go or 7-11, or Petro-Canada, or Fido phone that you can find. 7-11 has one that gives you a free phone if you buy $100 credit, for example.
I’ve been posting to HTMF with the iPhone all day. Works great on wifi. If I get some time, I’ll do a little video of it…
iPhone also has a camera, bluetooth connectivity, and has a nifty e-mail client, microphone and speakers. The iPod touch doesn’t have any of those.
I’ve been pretty much using the iPhone without phone service since I got back in Rupert a few weeks ago. Carry it around in your pocket and it automagically connects to open wifi networks, checks your mail, etc.
