Are my Canadian Friends Getting an iPhone?

If you’re in Canada, you’ve likely heard about the outrageous amounts that Rogers is wanting to charge people for use of the iPhone. Some people are refusing to get an iPhone just because of this, while others are being quite outspoken. Here’s what some of my friends have to say about the situation.

Ouch. Sorry, Canada. – Hao Chen

I’m glad you saw this Chris, now you really know why I called you up to tell you how Canadians are not going to bother with the iPhone nor Rogers! – Michael Forian

Sucks. I’m on Rogers. 🙁 – AJ Batac

Maybe the iPhone can be a positive thing to consumers to bring notice and hopefully positive change to the corrupt and greedy cell phone companies like Rogers. If I lived in Canada I definitely would not be buying an iPhone. Those plans are outlandish. 🙁 – Chris Rodgers

I’m on Fido with an iPhone, which is owned by Rogers. My current plan is decent, but without unlimited data, the iPhone 3G loses its appeal entirely. – Granteezy

I agree with Granteezy. Will stick with my Blacberry Curve until I see the BB Bold. Then I will decide. Rogers data plans don’t look to appealing. – Stephen Kennedy via twhirl

Thanks for the links fotographic. This is exactly what I mean about the iPhone. I hope this creates a stir and people leave Rogers or really show their disgust with the cell plans and not buy the iPhone. – Chris Rodgers

Thanks for the info. I will hold off getting the iPhone, as much as I really would like to have one. I presently own Apple’s touch, so I will console myself with the features it has and use my conventional smart phone. – Nellie Root

I am an iphone user in Canada. I was eagerly waiting for the 3g iphone – even at this moment, I am tempted to get it irrespective of how ridiculously priced the plans are but I won’t because I don’t like being taken for granted and also, if I got for it, I am basically vountarily lowering my pants, bending over and asking Rogers to go for it – and do the same to others… – Kamath

gee I’ve only been saying this since Rogers first announced they were going tobe selling the iPhone but that doesn’t change the fact the Bell would have done the same thing if they were selling it. – Steven Hodson

If you live in Canada – or anywhere, actually – what are your thoughts?
