iPhone and Rogers, Round 2

One year after Rogers nearly botched their Canadian iPhone launch with ridiculous data plans and extra fees, it looks like Rogers might have learned their lesson.

According to Rogers PR, they will support MMS and tethering with the intention of making the service availble with the June 19th launch. That means these features will not work with current pre-release installs of 3.0. Rogers would neither confirm nor deny whether MMS/tethering would require a more expensive pricing plan.

Also, Rogers will be bringing back their limited time [email protected]$30/mo plan. So if you’re finding yourself using most of your 3G data, you’ll have a chance to upgrade.

According to the current iPhone and Smartphone data pages on the Rogers website, only data plans with 1GB of data or more will have the ability to tether, and tethering will be free for new plans from June 8th to the end of 2009. Tethering has always been allowed on Rogers’ Network, and it is unknown at this point if people who signed their contracts before June 8th, 2009 will be exempt from charges, or if they will force you into a new contract to enable tethering on the iPhone.
