  1. Just in case Steve Jobs is reading through.

    A. What do you plan to do about this?

    B. Why can I buy the Nokia 95 unlocked for a competitive price on Tiger Canada, but I can’t buy the iPhone unlocked to choose my own carrier in Canada?

    C. Your iPhone costs a fortune. Is it really worth getting a phone that expensive when a small item such as that can easily be stolen or lost. Especially since you have to drag it all over the place and take it out often? You can get an unlocked moto KRZR for a little over a hundred bucks with voice dialing and a 2 megapixel camera.

    D. Your iPhone does an awful lot of data transfer. Our rates in Canada are the worst on planet earth.

    Rogers is the only GSM network here. They have a total monopoly and they are the only network that can support the iPhone. What kinds of steps have you taken Mr. Jobs to insure that people that use your iPhone in Canada do not receive $2000 phone bills from Rogers/AT&T crippling their budget and potentially destroying people’s lives?

  3. monkeyleader: we’ll do something like that. He’s over the top with it. Far more excited than I am and I think it’s the most brilliant product I’ve used in a long time. It just BLOWS AWAY my existing Nokia N95 in many areas.

  5. Booo.. Unfortunately Apple didn’t let my order go through because I had it shipped to my work address (since there’s a signature required), and that doesn’t match my billing address. That’s a really dumb policy.

    I think I’m going to cancel my order and go to the apple store tomorrow. I just called and she said they had some left, they close in 5 minutes, and there’s nobody in the store.

    Hopefully there won’t be a line in the morning.

  7. They’re all smiles and giggles right now…but I wonder if the iPhone really lives up to all the hype. We’ll just have to wait and see if any sad faces emerge after a few weeks when all of the iPhone or iSteveJobs-mania dies down.

    For my money…I’d rather have a Blackberry.
