Updated Again! iPhone in Canada: Rogers Hoses Hosers on Data Hose, eh?
I hate to say I told you so. I hate to have told you so. But mostly I just hate Rogers' breathing guts for telling us all so: No unlimited data for Canadian iPhone users and -- wait for it -- no reasonable data rates beneath the meager caps either! (But then, maybe I just hate myself for ever daring to hope the GSM monopoly would ever move off the worst data rates in the data world!). Not even the 5/6GB options available to BlackBerry and WinMob/Palm users?!
Thanks to Cherryhead25 for the tip!
UPDATE: Via Engadget's comments, here's the direct link for the Canadian Competition Bureau, where complaints can be registered:
UPDATE 2: Via HoFo, here's the link to Rep. David McGuinty's petition for House Bill C-555 to promote transparency and fairness in Canadian telcos: http://www.davidmcguinty.com/english/Take_Action/Petition_The_House/Petition_C_555_Frais_d_acces.html
Plans, similar for both Rogers and their Fido sub-brand, after the break!

Rogers Wireless will also offer two voice value packs for popular wireless features: a $15 monthly value pack including Caller ID, Who Called, Caller Ring Trax, 2,500 Sent Text Messages and 2,500 Call Forwarding Minutes; and a $20 monthly value pack including Caller ID, Who Called, Caller Ring Trax, 10,000 Sent Text Messages and 6:00 p.m. Early Evening Calling and 2,500 Call Forwarding Minutes.
There we have it. Caller Ring Trax (?!) if you want them, but nothing competitive with the rest of the world.
