    I have been considering a new phone lately, and decided that iPhone would suit me best. The only thing that really worries me is the data plans and all that stuff, since I'm in Canada, so I have a few questions:

    1. Is pre-paid available for iPhone in Canada?

    2. If pre-paid is available, can it cover SMS and Edge?

    3. If pre-paid is not available, what is the cheapest plan that would preferably include Edge (I guess I can do without Edge, but I'd really like it)?

    Thanks in advance.

    From my knowledge, nothing is supported in Canada for iPhones.
    You'll either need to travel to the states or import it here via eBay to get it.
    Theres no such plan in Canada for the iPhone.
    Theres also, no "cheap" data plans for Canada also like the $20.00 unlimited internet or $7..00 TZones hack in the US.
    Yes the iPhone will work with any GSM carrier if you unlock it, like any other GSM phone.
    Do you know what prepaid is first?
    Prepaid is being billed for everything you do on your phone.
    SMS is covered, but I don't think Edge would be for the iPhone.
    Cheapest Edge plan is the 1GB data plan for $60.00.. :s

    My friend got it in The States, JBed it, and went on Rogers. 100% functional, he didn't try Internet though.
    Don't go Fido since you can't receive MMS.

    Ouch, $60 a month? It doesn't work with any other data plans? darn! I geuss pre-paid will do, even if Edge isn't covered. And yes, I know what prepaid is.

    ISP? There's no such thing as an ISP for phones, you just have to get an internet plan for your phone.
