HTC Dream pulled by Rogers due to a 911 problem
Attention Rogers users in Canada who own a HTC Dream. If you are not upgrading your device to the free HTC Magic, then pay close attention. As of now, there is an issue effecting the Dream where you cannot place 911 emergency calls unless the GPS on the phone is deactivated. Because of this serious issue, Rogers has pulled the Dream from store shelves and on-line. There is a work-around for current owners (until it's fixed in a software update), which requires you to go into the Menu/Settings/Location and uncheck the Enable GPS option. Once that is done, you should be able to properly connect to 911. This issue seems to only effect the HTC Dream and not the Magic.
