Rogers to Be Canadian iPhone Provider… Again?

Dear Canadian iPhone enthusiasts,

I know I’ve been juggling your emotions around with this whole Rogers Wireless deal.

First I said Rogers would be the exclusive iPhone carrier in Canada.

Then I announced that the wireless company had changed its mind and denied that they would be Canada’s iPhone provider.

Now, O’Grady’s PowerPage is reporting that a customer service rep. at Rogers Wireless said the company “will be carrying the iPhone and will actually function as the exclusive Apple iPhone carrier.”

To tell you the truth, I don’t know whether the news is true or not. I can’t imagine that a customer service representative would be so uninformed as to not know whether Rogers would be carrying the iPhone, but remember when a Cingular rep. said iPhone would be debuting June 11, despite my calls to 25 Cingular stores nationwide suggesting otherwise?

In any case, just know that there is hope for your country. If Rogers accepts iPhone as part of its service line, you may in fact be seeing the revolutionary mobile device reach your shores sometime in the near future.

I promise to keep you updated as new information becomes available.
