Maxpower magazine with MentalM3's chrome M3 on the cover banned in CANADA!



Since i still work at Chapters, i know this crap, the issue with MentalM3's car on the front is officially quarantined until futher notice, most likely, it will not go on sale! Suxs

camera audiovox , a colour nokia (6500) series, and a audiovox flip cameraless. They have alot of features tho, like fake call, so you can get out of a bad date, free voicemail, caller id , etc etc..... Way better deal then ANYTHING we had in Canada before. Downside, you gotta buy a phone. Upside, the fully loaded cameraphone WITH FLASH is 219 buxs, STILL cheaper then ANY rogers phone LOL!!!

well , i talked with the distributor, so far its in quarantine, they might release it however, we can't enter it into our systems, since of something that was printed in it, but i CAN look at the copies, LOL i will find out what. They guy didn't wanna tell me! I ll find it on a break haha!

Right now its banned, but this could lead to a complete recall.... The couple that did the paintjob are soo pissed, they reserved copies for their shop with me, and now they can't get any>>>>:S

I was wondering why I never saw the new Maxpower mag with his car on it at stores that usually carry it!

Haha do you actually think that Bell/Virgin is better then Rogers then you are nuts. Sure rogers has steep prices on phones but with the contract its cheap and all the providers do that to get the contract. Telus/Bell/Virgin all share the network together did I mention Rogers has a bigger line-up of phones then all 3 of those put together? But then again a lot of peopel like those silver flip phones =\

^ are you insane??????? " with the contract its cheap" why don't you tally up that contract and see the TOTAL you are paying, and then tally up virgin's total, with the same plan and hours..... You'll be shitting bricks, i had 2 rogers phones for about 2.5 years... the plan that virgin offers cost nothing on rogers fortune. Might want to check your stats...1500 dollars extra is not a good deal to me, but then again i don't have money flowing freely out of my ass.


Not to mention , i worked at radioshack selling your damn rogers too, everybody who worked there knew rogers was a freaking rip, we laughed at how stupid people were who actually signed up ahaha. contract!! hahaha, you gotta be kidding me, try signing out of one early, pretty cheap too eh?
