    Default Apple Sticking It to Rogers for Insane iPhone 3G Plans?

    Apple not happy with Rogers over iPhone plan pricing? : Boy Genius Report

    Apple is rumored to divert large stock of Canadian iPhone 3G shipments to European countries due to the customer-unfriendly pricing that Rogers has set for the iPhone 3G. Additional staff who were hired by Rogers to handle the alleged influx of potential iPhone 3G customers were also reportedly fired immediately.

    Looks like Canadian end-users weren't the only ones who are unhappy with Rogers' voice and data plans attached to the iPhone 3G. If Apple takes a stance, there may be hope yet for Canada. Or, we'll just hope that Apple sells unlocked iPhones directly from their Canadian retail stores.

    I'm not sure this is 100% correct, but after Rogers' less then spectacular showing regarding the iPhone pricing, it seems more likely.

    I don't see why Rogers' can't just lower the prices. It'd greatly increase the number of Canadian iPhone users and shed some positive light on Rogers' PR department.
