Rogers – come on!!!

So I’m on the market for a new phone. Since I heard that the new 3G IPhone is comming to Canada I was jumping on the walls. This was all good until I found out the the carrier will be Rogers. And to make it worse their data plans suck. There is no unlimited data plan with the IPhone on the Rogers network.

When I heard that I was about to cry and then storm the Rogers headquarters and knock some sense into the people that made that decission.

  1. screen on the Touch Diamond may be smaller, but it’s higher res – full VGA.

  2. You know Tim…. you’re totally right. I might go with it after all.
    And then I find out that Telus is going to start charging for incoming sms texts as well. Also there is no shipping date on the Diamond.
    It’s “Comming Sooooonnnn”…….

  3. […] Rogers for Better Data Plan! So after my “ranty” post yesterday (found here) about Rogers Wireless’ Data Plans I came across a petition site that anybody can sign. The […]
