Rogers to bring iPhone to Canada? According to Digital Journal, Rogers Wireless will be bringing the Apple iPhone to Canada in a few weeks.
Although not confirmed by Apple or Rogers, Canadian retailers are the sources behind the rumor. However, the price the retailers are citing is extremely high, $799 CAD.

If that price is true, it would be unbelievable to see the device sell well, considering the price is a $400 premium from American retailers.

More information when it becomes available.

That is retarded considering the Canadian dollar is worth more then the US dollar at the moment.

But there will still be a bunch of muppets waiting in line to get one.

Fools!

$799 CAD? retarded indeed.

has anyone else heard that some ppl that have unlocked the iphone from at&t and are currently using it on rogers have been receiving a $2000 charge on one of their first bills?

i have a friend that works for customer retention at the h.o. in vancouver, and he told me they've received about 20 calls.

it's unclear why exactly it's happening, but i will update once i know more. apparently, it happens after a few months.
