On going battle with Telus corporate. They keep saying they design plans and devices specifically for the company. I don't mind what I pay for the plan (although my plan would go up about $20 after taxes), still trying to get them to lower the price of the phone to $0 from $200.

Was Telus giving 30% off on the $60 10gb deal?

I know Rogers does honour that
$40 Phone Plan:
  • Unlimited Data (25gb LTE)
  • Unlimited Talk / Text
  • Unlimited Roaming in US / Canada / Mexico

Haven't seen any Telus users say they could. I know they could design some plans specific to a company. There is an offer (expires soon) of $70 for 5 GB and nationwide calling for Canada Post employees along with 30% off current consumer plans.

Since I've reconfirmed my employment, I've been linked to a Telus EPP website that once in awhile sends me an offer. I still look at Smartcell and Clearwest regularly so I know what's going on.

Quick question. I'm currently on a telus standard account BYOD with 5GB for 50/month (on this for years now). I missed the 10 GB/60 and now can sign up for a telus EPP with one of the standard 30% rates which are would be appealing. If I'm not mistaken though I'll miss out on the port-in credit since I'm already a Telus customer. Is it possible/reasonable to briefly swap to a new BYOD provider (Fido etc) and then in a few days/weeks sign up for the Telus EPP and get the port-in credits toward a new device? Am I missing something since I'm off-contract?

Thanks

I have seen on past topics that you have to be away for at least 6 months. But I have also known friends that have gotten calls after 1 month about coming back with being offered a great win back offer.

I don't know how wildly the EPP offers vary by province/employer, but I am in Manitoba and am now seeing the Samsung S9 for $0 (just came down from $150 IIRC) + $200 port-in credit. I'd put it on a simple unlimited Manitoba + 2.5 GB (which I understand gets bumped to 4GB as a bonus?) plan for $48/mo.

Not bad at all but I think I will give it a few more days before pulling the trigger to see if any bigger deals come up as the big day approaches :)

Unfortunately it varies quite a bit by province. Looks like in MB you could get the 2.5GB plan for $45.50/mth ($38.50 for voice plan for unlimited Canada-wide plus $7 for 2.5GB). In BC the cheapest premium plan is $52.50 for unlimited Canada-wide plus $17.50 for 3GB. It's half a GB more, for $31.50 more per month. Gross.

Hi guys,

I'm on the Public Mobile $120 for 90 days promo plan for a while back -- i'm thinking of switching to the FEDGOV plan as i'm in the reserves -- seems to be a pretty good deal to go with iphone (8/X/XR) of choice with the Unlimited Calling/3GB Data @ $66.

So basically for an extra ~ $30 a month I get a new phone and i'm on a contract for 2 years. Doesn't make public mobile seem like such a good deal anymore?

Can someone verify i'm not crazy to give up the old Public Mobile plan to go on this contract?

Do we still get a port in credit if we're with another Telus subsidiary ie Koodo?

I don't believe the $80/8GB plan qualifies for the $200 port-in discount. Think you have to get their Premium/Plus/Platinum plans for that.

No, if you read the fine print, it basically excludes telus and anything that is telus like, aka koodoo, PM etc. It's right on the website.

The 2GB bonus is only with TELUS your choice plans and not the Black Friday $80/$90 plans.
