It's a paperclip neutered of its original function!
Yes, because it's digital, then that means there was hardly any work put into it to make it in the first place, and even if there was, trying to recoup that investment is just wrong if the incremental cost is tiny.
The thing that kills me about all of the cell phone data plans and the broadband prices out there is that they are pretty much making pure profit off of all of these things. It's not like they have to "manufacture and distribute" an actual physical commodity. They just have to make sure that the network is open and up and running.
It would be like me charging someone to get onto my WiFi network at home. Once I covered all my expenses of the hardware and service that I have to pay, it is all profit and I don't have to lift a finger to do anything.... ANYTHING!
Just a hint, reliable cell towers are a lot more expensive to build and maintain than your WiFi network. Your network goes down, you can fix it at your leisure. A cell tower goes down, you have thousands of customers upset and without service, and repair must be done in a very timely manner.
Point I was making is that this is indicative of the entire problem with this whole launch in Canada right now. There is no clarity on any aspect of this and even Rogers can't agree with itself on what is what.
Makes it hard to make an informed decision with only 3 days to go don't you think?
Friday isn't a deadline. No one has to buy the iPhone on Friday. Personally, I'm waiting for someone I know to get one so I can see how good of a signal it can get in my workshop. That may be a couple weeks.
