    Well, that post doesn't make much sense. But yes, you can buy it on contract and then pay the cancellation fee, you also have to pay the first month.

    Yes, you can also use any GSM sim card once you unlock the phone. However to the best of my knowledge Rogers is the only one with sim cards in Canada (except Fido but they're the same company). Bell and Telus are supposed to be moving over to GSM but I have no idea when the completion date is going to be.

    I'm currently looking for a cheap iPhone to do just that.

    So yes, in short, that will work.

    But my old phone ws not gsm based on phone but does itmatter??
    Let me summarize for ya what I says

    Basically cancelling is cheaper than buying without contract

    if I jailbreak and activate it rite after jailbreak it should be able to activate
    then I go Rogers and activate my old sim card then pop that one to iPhone and turn off edge or any data plan u said this is going to work??

    Before I pop up simcard I can't use edge rite so before I do that I turn off edge and 3g

    Heres what you HAVE to do for you plan to work:

    Buy iPhone on a 3year contract from Rogers. Activate it. Unlock it. Call and cancel your contract. Pay cancellation fee, pay for first month etc. Get a new plan without data. Either from Rogers or Fido, or if your old phone is from one of those two companies you can use THAT sim card. Turn off 3G or call Rogers and ask them to block all data on your account as not to incur any data penalty fees.

    Then it will work.

    $400 plus the first month and taxes

    You go to a Rogers store and say hello I would like a basic voice plan. No jailbreaking the phone has nothing t do with activating it. Activating it is done through Rogers.

    If the phone you are using right now has a sim card then you can unlock the iPhone pop the sim card from your current phone IN not ON or UP and it will work the way it did on your old phone.

    It does work, but the cancelation fee costs a butt load.
