I'm considering the iPhone 4 (or might wait for the 5). I live in Toronto and would like to know what I need to do to use it in lets say LA or Hong Kong. Is there a specific data plan I need to have signed up for (e.g. Telus, Rogers...etc. are the main carriers).
QUOTE Thanks

Ok thanks Chas. Will keep this in mind when I get my Iphone 5. Wonder if it will need to be unlocked as well.

Didn't know that. I wonder if carriers will lock the iPhone 5 too. Don't think I'll be picking up an iPhone till the 5 or "4s" comes out. Took me this long to be sold on the iPhone. Been using a Samsung flip phone for years. Thought it was all I needed. Then I began noticing all the great apps.

Actually I haven't picked up an iPad yet either. Will probably get the iPad 3. I have a 27" iMac and 15" MBP at the moment. I am an Apple fan. So my wait on the items isn't because I'm not into Apple products. I think most are very intelligent and user-friendly.

Chas,

How are you not on a 3-year contract? I think Fido sells iPhone and I'm guessing service plans. Are you with them?

One of my friends works for Telus...I will be able to get the corporate discount (50% off). But I think I'll be stuck with a 3-year $50 /mth contract.

Hey Chas,

About my Telus corporate discount I was referring to the purchase of the upcoming iPhone "4s" or "5". Or whatever they end up calling it. As for the data plans...I'll be paying full$ and might start with Telus' $50 /mth plan to start.
QUOTE Thanks
