After complaints, Telia adds unlimited plan for iPhone 3G After receiving tons of complaints, Telia Sonera has changed its tune and will offer upcoming Apple iPhone 3G owners the option for an unlimited data plan. Users will also be able to choose between its existing voice plans.
Last week Telia released details on the upcoming iPhone 3G launch saying users would only be allowed to purchase data plans offering 100, 250, or 1000 minutes, SMS, and data on plans that cost as much as 859 SEK per month. Telia was "flooded" with complaints and has now decided to offer an unlimited plan. There was no word on the price however.

In Canada, a similar situation has been brewing, where Rogers has hit users with very expensive data plans that offer little SMS and daytime minutes. This is also on top of a mandatory 3-year contract. According to Ruinediphone.com, there is a petition going around to stop Rogers' exploitive data rates and has already reached 31,000 signatures.

AT&T's personal know little as to what the plans will be. I have been to various stores and the response is the same. "A new plan will be 200." Besides that they don't know anything, such as if one can trade in our upgrade from the old iphone to the new one and not have to pay contract cancellation fees.

The same happened here in Norway. Netcom, which is owned by Telia, added an unlimited data plan.

Still hugely expensive to get one, though.
