Actually the iphone isn't considered a smartphone in Canada. On the carrier web sites, you won't find the iphone listed under any smartphone categories...which is understandable.

Good finally. I hope apple gets hit hard. Microsoft was for the stupidest reasons.. Because apparently Europeans don't know that they can change their browser and as if that really matters anyway. Apple being the most evil and anti-competitive company there is, I hope it burns.

Carriers have always been put under severe restraints by Apple when stocking the iPhone, carriers are literally chained by groin by apple the minute they sell the phone. Especially in Europe,apple has as has been seen is quite quick to ignore even things like the law stating 2 year warranty is a legal free right. I know a lot of carriers were under severe pressure because of the iPhone 4 where thousands of customers were returning the phone saying it was dropping calls and apple wasn't allowing networks to return or swap out the handset as the problem "didnt exist,carriers were literally told f you by apple and deal with it yerselves
