Sales of the iPhone in Canada are still outpacing supply, but the device’s exclusive carrier Rogers Wireless says it’s getting weekly shipments from manufacturer Apple Inc. to help meet the demand.
MTS will probably never be offering the new iPhone, as it doesn’t have the technology for it. Rogers, well Rogers does offer the handy little mobile phone but for exorbitant prices.
Well, Rogers mobile phone services is a lot cheaper than MTS and I liked the phone they were offering with their plan. It wasn’t the iPhone of course, but it was a top of the line Nokia. What I also liked alot was the fact that the technology used enables me to switch the SIM card in the phone and use a different mobile phone provider when I am in Europe. They also told me that the Rogers phone services would work in Europe, but admitted that the roaming costs would kill me. One thing I just cannot understand though, is why in Canada we have to pay extra for every little thing that Europeans consider to be part of a standard mobile phone package – such as ‘caller-id display’, ‘call forwarding’, ‘voice mail’, etc. In Europe nobody would accept a mobile plan where you have to pay for incoming calls either.
