So I bought a new 32GB iPhone 3G S this morning at a Rogers Plus store. Was painless and, since I give them so much money each month, I received the $299 pricing.
Different from last time is that the staff activated the phone before handing it over.
I plugged it into iTunes which offered to restore my previous unit’s backup and I’m good to go. Smooth!
I thought I’d let everyone know that I upgraded my iPhone 3G to iPhone OS 3.0 yesterday and tethering Just Works™ over both Bluetooth PAN and USB. In fact, it’s much simpler to use than I expected.
I have an original 6G data plan with Rogers and according to their FAQ, this is a supported feature and I am not going to get a multi-thousand dollar bill next month.
