    Which seems economically unfeasible given the prices Rogers charges for its data services. Perhaps it’s time for someone to patent one-click bankruptcy.

    Anyone hooking the iphone up to Rogers better be ready for a big surprise when they get their data bill.

    great idea! now if someone can just get a functionally equivalent to the iPhone for a realistic price it will be even better. I wonder what you will have to do if you live in Saskatchewan which I understand is a one provider dictatorship

    I’ve just unlocked an iphone with the opensource unlocker that was released today and it’s running very nicely on Rogers. The prices Rogers charges are outrageous, and I completely agree with another posting on this site that this is relegating Canadian mobile users to envious bystanders. So for anyone doing this, just make sure you use the data-hungry device for calls only while you’re not in wifi range.

    Maybe you guys should do some research first. My Iphone bill is usually around 45 or so dollars a month, with data.
