That's just something that gets added to all new accounts, unlimited first month no matter what your long term plan is. It will vanish but you'll still have unlimited minutes.
Do u sure about this bro? This bugs me too.

Can someone please confirm if the unlimited local calling is included in this bundle each month and NOT just for the 1st month?
My billing details shows "Minutes Local Unlimited-1Month (exp. Jan 18 2018)"...does this auto renew each month?
Noticed the same thing on my bill

Update: was successful in getting both long-distance texting and VVM via online chat. A much better experience compared to the first time. It can be done!
What does the VVM look like one your account? Just curious

Hi everyone. For those of you that activated on December 18/19, any of you get a strange "Jan 4 Rate plan added Promo ULNW 10GB non-share BYOD" in your account's transaction history?

After the fact, due to an email I had sent in frustration during the promotional time period... they switched my plan to "EPP UNLW 10 GB non-share BYOD". My Telus contract had been up for a year.

This was my old plan:

$60 EPP Unlimited Local 3GB

included features

3 GB included data
250 LD min
Unlimited Messaging
TELUS to TELUS CAN Calling
Canadian LD @ $0.10
MHSI APN Access
Canadian LD @ $0.15
Text Messaging Services
SPARK Sampler
911 Emergency Access Charge
Conference Calling
Call Display
Outbound Call Display On
Advanced Voice Mail
Call Waiting

new features added

International Calling On
International Data Roaming
International Voice Roaming


This is my new plan:

EPP ULNW 10GB non-share BYOD

$60.00
Services

International Voice Roaming On
International Calling On
International Data Roaming On

Call Waiting
Call Display
Outbound Call Display On
Conference Calling
Advanced Voice Mail

No charge LD: CAN to CAN
Family Calling LD
911 Emergency Access Charge
SMS Unlimited


Now, via e-mail, they've offered to change my account to a consumer account as well ('cause I had asked for that in my initial email as well). Is there any benefit either way? If I change to a consumer account, will they allow a bundle discount with our home phone? (the only other Telus product in our home). They would not allow a bundle of our home phone with the corporate mobility plan.

They took away the call-forwarding I had included complimentary in my old plan (I had never used it but now that it's gone LOL.... hmmm?)
Based on suggestions here, I am going to ask that that be included and also ask for the Canada - Int'l texting to be added.

What is VVM?

Also, anybody with Telus ever have issues with charges for texts to and from numbers other than 10 digit numbers? The new Telus contract wording is "SMS unlimited" and not "unlimited messaging" as it was before.

I briefly tried Freedom Mobile during the promo and cancelled during the remorse 15 day period. I discovered with Freedom you are charged 10 cents for any text to and from short codes i.e. radio stations, Uber, contests, etc. I had never encountered any charges like that with Telus. Those texts are not included in the "unlimited texting" with Freedom. Freedom only allows unlimited free texting to and from standard 10 digit numbers I was told by customer service after the fact.

Are you not getting 35% off for your corporate line? If you change to consumer, you will lose that discount.

Visual Voice Mail. A nicer way of tracking, listening to, deleting voice mails. I didn't know what it was before people on this thread were talking about. Now that I have it, I like it.
