Living in Canada, I will wait until it is available through some provider up here. I want it! Looks so cool.

Of course being up in the high Arctic now means it is of now use to me, but when I return home in July, I hope to upgrade my phone to an iPhone!

If it means changing providers, then so be it! Who cares if I get a different number!

re: canadia, a long chat w/ cingular informed me that unlike verizon they have no plan to offer a... um... plan that would include calls to/from nafta countries, instead suggesting that perhaps while their Canada Package of $5/mo would enable you to receive/send calls FROM canada for minutes + $.50, their rollover model (your unused minutes get credited to next month's) should make up for the difference.
hrmf. that's all i have to say to that. think Fido/Rogers/Tellus/Bell will bite?

Actually, Rogers will be the Canadian provider for iPhone and it'll probably take about a year to get everything ready.

My email reply from Roger's:

Rogers is actively working with Apple to launch the iPhone in Canada as
soon as possible and will be the exclusive provider of the iPhone in

Rogers will be offering the iPhone exclusively in Canada but launch date
and pricing for Canada are not yet available. Other Canadian wireless
carriers will not launch the iPhone, Rogers will be the only Canadian
wireless carrier to offer the iPhone.

Being the only GSM phone provider, Rogers is the only one who can support the iPhone. Also, I think you can keep your cell. no. now when you change providers.

Why do you need to change number if you change provider?
