Rogers extends iPhone prices, revamps data plans

Rogers Communications Inc. is revamping its data rate plans and extending a limited-time offer on the iPhone in order to spur sales of smartphones.

The Toronto-based company, Canada's largest cellphone provider, on Thursday said it will extend the $30-a-month data plan — which lets owners of iPhones, other smartphones and computer laptop aircards download up to six gigabytes a month — until the end of September. Rogers announced the plan, which was to expire on Aug. 31, in July when it launched Apple Inc.'s 3G iPhone.

Liz Hamilton, spokesperson for Rogers, said the plan is being extended so that buyers of the BlackBerry Bold, which was released last week, can take advantage of it.
