iPhone coming to Canada SOON!

Posted:
in iPhone edited January 2014
www.microboutique.ca is giving away a iPhone for there 25th anniversary.

They are an authorized apple reseller and service centre here in Montreal.

I doubt they would give away a iPhone if there was no "legal" way to have it work here in Canada and to get service for it in Canada.

I would be very surprised if an authorized Apple reseller and service centre would give away a unlocked iphone.

That would not look too good with Apple.



I think that's a clear sign the iPhone is finally coming to Canada!



The web site is in french, let me know if you need translation.



Thanks.

    Good find even though I can't read French they are def'n giving away an iPhone. I wonder if this March 18th rumour has some truth behind it? Maybe the annoucement will be March 18th and the availability will be a couple weeks later like they did in Ireland.

    this has happened before when Molsons (beer people) tried including an iPhone as a prize in Canada. the prize was retracted - read more here:

    At this point aside from iPhone actually being in apple stores there is no indication it's or guarantee it is going to be coming to this side of the border anytime soon.

    First, where is the 'English version' button? They cry their eyes out when there is no 'French bullshit' button on a Canadian site.



    Besides that though. Rogers is/was Apple's choice as a carrier. Now Rogers won't give Apple the unlimited data plan to go with the iPhone. Otherwise we would have had the iPhone already yesterday. But thanks to Rogers, no way so far..... great, thank you Rogers.

    If another carries is able to pull this off, I am switching everything from Rogers to other companies.

    The ad has been changed to offer an iPod Touch instead.

    There have been other rumors that Rogers thought the back end support for the 1 generation iPhone was too high. But who knows at this point. Interestingly enough, Telus is considering moving to the GSM format: http://www.thestar.com/Business/article/293353

    Also, with the recently ended wireless spectrum auction in Canada, there is hope for one or more new entrants into the national carrier arena. If the new player(s) opt for GSM, which it sounds like they will, Rogers will lose their monopoly on GSM in Canada.



    Depending on who wins the auctions and how fast they can roll out their new networks, Rogers may have negotiated themselves out of the iPhone contract.
