    Okay guys, I need help.
    Our family is looking towards a family plan at Rogers in Canada (which is where I reside). I told my parents that I would love to buy an iPhone, and that I would pay the 300 bucks myself. Everytime I mention this, they are undecided. They tell me that I don't need one and all of this other crap. I currently have a 16GB iPod Touch, and I am planning on selling it to my brother for $250. I would then save some money and get a 3G iPhone.

    I was just wondering if the family plans include the iPhone or do they have to be another phone or only certain phones. If they have to be certain phones, is there anything that I can do to convince my parents in letting me buy my own iPhone.

    I wouldn't really call all that much, but at the end of school for rides and stuff is where I would use it. And to make plans and all of that crap. I would be using it like an iPod Touch, and would get the App Store and games and apps on there. I also would probably use it on the go for email and text messaging.

    What do you guys think? How should I convince them?
    Thanks
    Much appreciated.

    thank you a lot
    i was just looking on the rogers website for the iphone and the $15 data plan lets me use 2MB of data included but free data included for e-mail on select domains. Can you please explain how much data is 2MB because 1 extra mb is 10 bucks extra (ouch)

    I believe that would be the speed at which the data is transfered to you, i would get the highest amount possible for you budget
