I bought my wife an iPhone a couple months ago...she didn't want the data plan as she will just use wifi at home.
Have you received a bill yet? Any issues or charges due to the lack of data plan?

Our first bill had 600kb of data usage on it. The Rogers store that sold it to me forgot to disable the internet/data as I asked them to do. When my wife first got her phone she went on the app store, thinking she was on wifi. I found out a few hours later she wasn't on wifi, so I phoned Rogers the next day and disabled the internet/data. We haven't had any data charges since then. I just got my 2nd bill and there was no data charges on it.

This is definitely not the first I've heard of this...seems that Rogers/Fido is conveniently "forgetting" to turn off data. This is what worries me about customers without data plans, not checking their bill thoroughly, and automatically paying the bill every month. Good to hear you followed up and ensured it was disabled!

I learned not to trust what a CSR tells you without following up with them once or twice to make sure they did what they say they are going to do. the funny thing when I did follow up, the CSR I talked to said that whoever blocked my internet before, didn't block it correctly. He said there is a certain block they add for iPhones. Not sure what it is. Fortunately there was no data incurred because of the 1st CSR's mistake.

There is a free app, Ultimate Todos, that syncs with Todoodle.com and an app that syncs your Outlook with Todoodle.com. Back assed way to sync Outlook To Do's but for my uses its fine as I just want Outlook to be a back up.

There is also a game based on Tron now! Its called LightBike. The demo/light version is just one player, first to 3 wins vs. 3 computer bikes. Paid version will have same device 2 player and wi-fi play, and maybe more environments I guess.

truphone is pretty much a must have app. call anyone anywhere in the world for $.06 per minute over wifi. call quality seems decent enough, slight latency.

Don't expect Apple to ever jump on that sinking ship, and it'll take Bell some years yet before their network is updated to GSM/LTE.

I believe it's true. No support for Name Display, except of course if the person calling is in your Address Book.

Yeah - if the number is attached to a name in your "Contacts", it'll show the name calling. If not, it's just the number that shows up on-screen.

Default iPhone app that locks most of your info when you lend your phone

I think I read about an iPhone app that allows the owner to lock most of the apps and data, so when they lend the phone to someone, the borrower cannot access photos, contacts, web, etc. Does anyone know what it's called? I can't seem to find it.

Default iPhone 3G now...or wait for new iPhone ?

I've been reading as much as I can find on the new iPhone, mostly speculation of course. A better camera ? that's of little use to me. Sounds like the wi-fi will be upgraded to 'N', but I only have 'g' at home anyway. It's not really a bottle-neck for internet speed around our house. (we're in the country and have a wireless service) The potential of a faster processor sounds promising, do current iPhone owners find this a problem right now ? Maybe good to have for future apps. Then there is always the promise of more flash memory. Do current iPhone owners find the 8G or 16G to small ? That's a lot of music !! Not so much for movies ? I guess what I am really dancing around whether to purchase the current iPhone or wait it out a couple or 3 more months to get the new model. I don't have an iPhone now, I just own a basic clam-shell phone...so I must admit I do have to suppress that urge to just run out there and get it !! Since the new OS will work on the 3G model, I'm just not sure if the wait is actually going to be worth it. Tough to make a decision while trying to compare a real phone to speculation. thoughts ? advice ?? Thanks !
