by Daniel Wolfe Posted in Mobile

And Rogers takes another step backwards in reaching parity with other mobile telcos. Below are the price plans for the iPhone 3G when it hits Canada. Don’t forget the mandatory 3 year contract!

    Nice. Get the scoop here at NorthGeek! This is an impressive leap for the Canadian market, but it’s still way behind other 3G iPhones worldwide. In particular, check out the little things like: evenings start at 9pm (?), call display not included, etc. I am curious what kind of usage this iPhone will generate… in other words, will 400 MB be nearly enough? Still no pricing from Fido. Will it be identical or match Fido’s typical terms (like evenings 7pm-8am, extra minutes, unlimited incoming, more flexible contract lengths).

    And if you’re pissed about this pricing, you can sign this petition at, where already “25,960 people say NO to Rogers.”
