    Instead of targeting “customers who don’t want to subscribe to a data plan” with dumbed-down phones, why don’t they offer lower amounts of megabytes for less?

    For example, $10 for 100mb should be easy for them when they are charging $35 for 1,000mb.

    Then, people who can’t afford a big data plan can still use a smartphone.

    Instead, we get yet another dumb phone with an unlimited on-device plan which means the phone has been crippled to only use a basic wap browser.

    I have a blackberry and the only way I can use it to subscribe to a $35/month plan, when I only need to use about 50mb a month. So it’s just sitting in a drawer right now.

    Yes, same here, I only need a max of 100 mb on my blackberry pearl

    This is a good phone for wap. I mean for the others where $10 for 100mbs and so on, carriers aren’t making enough. Let’s face it, RIM and Apple take royaly for every device consumers use, so with only $10, half of that money would not be going to carriers.

    I do agree, just not realistic

    Guys get with the times, TELUS offers social networking plans that keep it affordable on a monthly basis while still having access to our favorite data apps.

    If u aren’t stuck in rogers contract you could enjoy your wireless services, including data.

    Existing TELUS customers even still have access to UNLIMITED DATA for as low as $15 a month, and now with them having a superior network than the Robers, why not be with an affordable wireless carrier???

    I was with rogers back 5 years ago and i would honestly pay $50 a month just for 2 MB of DATA, so i jumped ship onto a TELUS unlimited Data plan with more minutes and features for $50 a month TOTAL!!:s

    Rogers is offering 15$ data plan… it wont trigger promotionnal pricing so you would pay more for your device… and by the there is a 25$ data plan wich is eligible for promotionnal pricing.

    But on the subject this phone is full HTML enabled so with a WAP option the browsing is pretty much the same than on a smartphone so with either the WAP push function well its not BB like but cool for personnal usage (IM SMS email and You Tube)

    anyone know if rogers will be releasing lock codes so this phone can be used with other providers?

    Download Opera Mini with Unlimited Mobile Browsing ($10 standalone or in a Value pack) and you will have a better browsing experience than the Rogers WAP browser. This phone is capable of HTML.

    AND OPERA MINI IS ALLOWED WITH THE UNLIMITED MOBILE BROWSING.
