It will cost you $793.19 to get 8gb 3G iphone, if you sign $60 plan with rogers or fido and cancel it after one month. I dont think 3G is worth this price.

I\'m in Scandinavia, and thanks for being so thoughtful :) Norwegian customers protested against the plans that NetCom presented, and then they presented a new plan that was even worse. $ 80 for 100 minutes, 100 sms and 100 mb data, I don\'t think so. Scandinavian customers, buy the first generation iPhone from the bay and wait for the carriers to get their heads out of their asses.
