“iPhone Prices In Canada”, or “Bad News Comes On Friday”

So, the Canadian iPhone price plans have been announced. I’m not surprised in the slightest that Rogers once again decided to fleece their customers – 450MB cap? No unlimited plans? Three year contract?

Behold the power of the monopoly, folks. Sigh. Unfortunately, it’s JUST within the realm of tolerable for me. I need to find a way to talk myself out of it.

    I don’t think the 400MB is much of a problem. You can’t tether the iPhone to your laptop and all streaming/VOIP applications are banned anyway. I use my Nokia N95 8GB for web/Google Maps/podcasts and I rarely exceed 400MB a month.

    If I ever moved to Canada, the rest of the deal would be way too painful for me to stomach though. $7 a month for “service access”? $15 just to get Caller ID? Plus tax on top? What the hell? Not to mention the 3 year contract. I guess that’s not too different from any contract in Canada though. I did note that evenings start at 9pm with the iPhone, which I guess is pretty crappy even for Canada.

    Just think though – if you get an iPhone, you can ditch that collectors’ item of a Nokia I gave you. ;)

  • About Me

    Hi! My name is Kimberly Horne and I have absolutely nothing interesting to say. Unfortunately for you I DO have an overpowering need to tinker with technology which is explains the presence of this journal. I mostly talk about games (video and tabletop), technology, tattoos, and my pets.

    If you're an Eclipse user you may find my Eclipse category more interesting.

    Similarly, if you're an Arduino nerd then maybe my projects might be of interest.

    Since I've discovered Twitter this journal has been neglected somewhat. If you really want to stalk me your best bet is to follow me on twitter.
