    BlackBerry Bold headin' to Canada later this week

    Jeez – after hearing about the Bold for over 3 months, it’s hard to believe this thing still hasn’t touched down in North America. Fortunately, that won’t hold true much longer. Read the rest at MobileCrunch >> Read More

  • Rogers whipped into submission

    Rogers whipped into submission

    Rogers has conceded that its pricing is a bit outlandish and is now offering a $30/6GB monthly plan for those who intent to download “105 hours of YouTube” or maybe 10 emails a day. No word on Visual Voicemail or whether Apple stores will carry the phones. Read More

    In response to egregious Rogers pricing, Apple won't sell iPhone 3G in its Canadian retail stores

    This “Apple hates Rogers” story is hotting up! Now it looks like Apple won’t sell the iPhone 3G at its Canadian retail stores, leaving Rogers (and Fido, its partner is crime) flapping in the wind. You can feel the annoyance in Apple’s voice in this quote: We have nothing to do with the service plans. Those are Rogers’ plans Hell hath no fury! Keep bitching, Canadians. Read More

  • Rogers gets Apple slapdown

    Rogers gets Apple slapdown

    Rogers, the Canadian carrier that pissed off an entire kind, gentle, and non-warlike nation, is now getting some nasty treatment from Apple after creating a pricing plan that was so sufficiently onerous that even the calm Canadians created a sternly-worded a petition against it. The Rogers deal was supposed to bring great rejoicing to the frozen North. Rogers would screw its customers and they… Read More

    Rogers launching BlackBerry Bold on July 25

    Attention Canada- By now you’ve read that Rogers will be bending you over on data plans if the iPhone 3G is something you’re lusting after and you’re none to happy about it, so I suggest you look down a different path. Why not stick to a homegrown company like RIM and wait a couple weeks for the Bold? Read More

  • Compared to AT&T iPhone 3G data plans, Canadians get screwed by Rogers

    Compared to AT&T iPhone 3G data plans, Canadians get screwed by Rogers

    We’re still sifting through AT&T’s iPhone 3G presser, but one thing is clear: Canadian users are getting screwed by Rogers compared to AT&T’s prices. (American users get screwed, too, but that’s for another post.) For starters, the number of minutes Canadians get is so low, I wonder why you’d even bother. The most expensive Rogers plan gives less weekday… Read More

  • Would-be Canadian iPhone buyers ticked off, start petition over data prices

    Would-be Canadian iPhone buyers ticked off, start petition over data prices

    The just-announced iPhone 3G pricing plan for Rogers in Canada isn’t going down too well. One intrepid Canadian started a Web site, RuinediPhone.com, that has a petition targeting the rather unfair prices. So far, more than 17,000 people have signed the petition, which is intended to make Rogers drop the price of the iPhone data plan. The site’s creator has even written an open letter… Read More

  • Leaked Rogers activation process points to in-store activation also could be BS

    Leaked Rogers activation process points to in-store activation also could be BS

    An “anoymous user” sent in a document purporting to be an internal document from Rogers Canada detailing iPhone activation. There’s not much we don’t already know except that they’re using a secret version of iTunes for activation, which requires a special module. There’s one niggling problem, though. The terminology is fairly rudimentary take this, for example… Read More

    Rogers announces iPhone plans

    Crack open a Molson, Canada! A picture is worth a thousand words so I won’t bore you with the details. However, all you “north of the border” types better start lining up for your iPhone 3G. With these kind of data plans – which are actually quite reasonable – you now have a reason to throw away those old boring phones you’ve been using all these years in… Read More
