Canadian Apple Stores to sell iPhones

updated 10:50 am EDT, Thu June 18, 2009

iPhones at Can. Apple

Canadians should now be able to buy iPhones from Apple Stores, Apple has announced. While the iPhone 3G has been on sale in Canada since its 2008 launch, buyers have typically had to turn to a Rogers or Fido store to pick up the product. People should now have the option of heading to one of the country's nine Apple outlets, located in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Vancouver, Laval and Montreal. An Ottawa store opening is anticipated for August.

The company has simultaneously revealed that it will begin selling the iPhone 3GS in its Canadian stores on Friday, starting at 8AM. Most subscribers will have to agree to a three-year voice and data contract from either Rogers or Fido. As an option however, Apple Stores will be selling contract-free versions of both the 3G and 3GS. An 8GB 3G is set at $599, while a 16GB 3GS will cost $699, and a 32GB model will cost $799. Rogers (which owns Fido) has yet to publish this pricing on its own.

    not totally true (yet)

    I just called the Apple store in Vancouver and the guy who answered told me that they will not be selling off-contract price iPhones at least at first and he has no certain information that they will ever do it. So while they will sell you an iPhone with a new three year contract, they won't sell you an off-contract one. There is some "feeling" that they will do this at some point but they specifically haven't been given that direction yet.

    Who me upgrade

    I will be skipping this phone and I think many 3G users will as well. The cost of breaking your existing contract is too high unfortunately and I won't be spending $700 for a cell phone.
