2 words. NEVER HAPPENING. At least not in Bell's current state. By 2011 or so they should have the GSM up and running, the best you could do then is get an unlocked one. But, much like AT&T, Rogers has exclusivity deals. I switched to Rogers, if you want the iPhone then I suggest you do the same or you could be waiting a hell of a long time.

Never say never. O2 had an exclusive deal but by next year there will be 3 carriers in the UK. Bell Gsm service is expected to be up by next year and did Rogers/Fido had a deal or was it exclusive by default. I am not a fan od Bell, but I hope they get it since competition is helpful.

Rogers/Fido got the Iphone because Telus and Bell's network wasn't able to work with it atleast that's what I heard. I haven't heard anything about Bell but I heard Telus was supposed to be getting Iphones soon. I don't know how soon though.

I keep hearing how Rogers has exclusivity deal on the iphone. If this was true why does a small GSM cell phone company in northen Ontario have the iphone??? It's WAY over priced though, no contracts. I have a contact with Bell and he has said that they dont have a list of HSDPA phones yet. Also, didnt Bell just sign a contract with AT&T for service in Canada? I hope the iphone will appear on Bell when they switch to HSDPA.

Boy Genius Report just posted that the iPhone is coming to Bell & TELUS and that the GSM network is going to launch in November instead of next year.
Bell and TELUS to offer the iPhone next month? : Boy Genius Report

Just read a headline from a newspaper this morning regularly delivered to my workplace. Bell and Telus are about to get Iphones bringing competition to Rogers. So looks like the exclusivity is not so exclusive after all. I'll go read it to give some more info. Just excited about this
It was in The Globe and Mail, I tried to scan it but cut off a bit but the basic info is there
