Got in contact with Telus and they are offering me this EPP plan:
iPhone XS Max 64GB; 10GB infinite plan
$75/month minus 10% discount = $67.50 + tax = $76.27 + $30.92 = $107.20/mth

The $30.92/month (cost of device for two years) = $742.08

$0 upfront, $0 at end of contract for the hardware. **Although, will have to pay $163.50 (tax for the device) upfront

In the end, Rogers offered me vs. what Telus offered me:
-$430 upfront fee vs. $0 upfront fee
-$430 price of phone vs. $742 price of phone
-$80/month (reg. $115) 10GB vs. $67/month (reg. $75) 10GB infinite

Have been a loyal Rogers customer since 2005, but think it's time to switch over...
I was deciding on the same thing (whether or not to move to Telus) - doesn't it come out to the same in the end?

With Rogers, you pay $430 upfront and $80/month instead of $67 - for 24 months, that's $13x24 = $312
$430 + $312 comes out to exactly $742 which is the phone cost at Telus

For Telus, you'd have to pay connection fee and tax upfront? Unless you value the infinite data...

For Telus EPP, remember to refer your co-workers for a $50 bill credit for both your referral and yourself!

The S10+ is a much better deal

Do both parties get the credit? I thought it was just the one that refers the coworker for Telus?

These phones are unlocked correct?

My wife has Telus Epp and I want the s10 but I'm on Rogers.

Is it as simple as her ordering the s10, upgrading her Telus plan to an EPP plan, then when the hardware arrives, I simply isey Rogers sim card in the s10?

Decided to pull the trigger on the Telus deal after being with Rogers for over a decade. Currently with an iPhone 6 Plus on a corporate 10GB plan for $65. I don't like what coming down the pipe for the 2019 iPhone and mine is showing signs of age. Felt like the price for the iPhone XS Max 256gb was worth the price seeing as I have been BYOD devices for years and the same device straight from Apple is $1729 pre-tax.

Went with the 50GB Peace of Mind plan for $87.50 as I regularly have to regulate my data usage since I usually hit my monthly 10GB allowance on my current plan. 50GB seems like alot now, but I don't think these large data bucket plans are going to get any cheaper in the future. Might as well lock it down now.

As for the phone, here were my calculations for the iPhone XS Max 256:
Upfront cost: $0
Device tax: $113.04
Device payment plan: $573.35 ($21.33*1.12*24)
Bring it back: $405.44 ($362*1.12)
Total Device Cost After Tax: $1091.83 - $300 in bill credits = $791.83

All phones in Canada are now sold unlocked. If not, they have to unlock it for free if you request it.

The EPP plan needs to be in your name. You'd have to have her call in, authorize a xfer of ownership into your name, then you need to call in and have them create an epp account for you. There's (of course) a $50 fee to do this.

I feel like that if we wait until the fall release barrage of iPhone + Pixel we might actually get a deal, even leaving Black Friday out of it. But I guess if you need a phone now or you don't wanna hunt during BF, its not a bad time to upgrade.

S10+ won't drop below these prices. The XS may.

Thanks for the reply. I don't want the Epp plan, just the hardware. I'd put my Rogers sim in the new phone.

She'd upgrade her existing Telus plan to the Epp plan, but use her existing phone.

Wouldn't that work?

For Telus, can I move my plan now without getting a device, then get the device in the future at some point? Meaning I wouldn't start a 2 year term until I chose to take the hardware?

Also, I see some people mentioned sharing data on Telus, but my EPP terms say you can't share. Can someone confirm if sharing works for them?

Does your company need to be enrolled with the TELUS EPP program in order to get those rates? I currently have Rogers as our main provider but I'm not sure if TELUS makes exceptions for these kinds of things
