So the questions start:
- Is there a bandwidth cap?
- Are 3rd party applications like ShoZu and Qik (if ShoZu and Qik don't port to the iPhone others will) allowed?
ShoZu-like and Qik-like applications appear on the iPhone 3G and they work well and Rogers allows them with a reasonable bandwidth cap (reasonable to my multi-media creation needs is 2GB YMMV :-) !!!),
THEN (it's not a r*poff, hurrah!) AND I'll get a 3G iPhone (since net-net, it's only about $10 a month more to pay than my current $50 per month grandfathered EDGE Fido plan).
The only thing that still gives me pause is the 3 year contract but I can live with it if the apps are there!
So I guess I don't buy one on my birthday but wait to see if the 3rd party apps that I want appear and if Rogers allows them.
