iPhone hits TELUS stores today

November 6, 2009

iphone_home.gifToday is the official launch of the iPhone running on TELUS’ new HSPA+ network built in partnership with Bell.

Pricing is the same as what is on offer from Rogers or Bell – $200 for the 16GB iPhone 3GS with a 3-year contract & $300 for the 32GB model ($99 for the iPhone 3G). TELUS also has 4 plans ranging from $50-$100 per month (with no extra fees), offering from 100-450 ‘anytime’ minutes & between 500MB & 3GB of data per month (including tethering). TELUS also includes its ‘5 Favourite Numbers’ package or double ‘anytime’ minutes in all plans plus enrollment in its ‘PERKS’ promotion, which offers various undisclosed offers to participating members.

Interestingly, none of the plans offered by TELUS mention Visual Voicemail, instead offering TELUS’ Voicemail 3. TELUS does adverties the Visual Voicemail service, however, leading me to believe that regardless of the plan you purchase, Visual Voicemail would be an additional fee.

While it is true that TELUS has waived the System Access & other fees it should be noted that they have boosted the core prices of their plans by $5 to make up for the difference in revenue.
