Got XR 256GB at $67.50 10GB plus $3 for the phone bring it back $240 amount. You can pay bring it back anytime after 6 months.
Are you sure about that? I got the exact same plan as you so you’re telling me I can pay the $240 after 6 months? I’d pay that in a heartbeat and then own the phone completely... you’re 100% sure about this?

Telus doesn't buy back the phone.
It's a lease program. You never own phone unless you pay the buyout price. Otherwise Telus owns the device and you must return it after 24mo.

In most cases, it works out better to not go with lease. You can almost always sell the phone for more money on Kijiji
I agree with everything you said...I was inferring that its essentially the same thing

paying 300 bucks after you sell an iphone for 500 at the end of the 2 years makes a lot of sense actually. i wouldn't do it with androids though. they don't hold their value at all.
i got 99 problems but PM'ing ain't one ;)

Why did you not do the “Bring It Back”?

It’s a good feature is it not? I mean, most of us would want a new phone after 2 years. I am just curious why you did not participate in that program.
Im planning to keep the phone anyway so I never think about the bring it back.
Also, the end of the day you basically getting the phone for free because of the $300 credit.

Yes. I confirmed with the rep and checked online. I want to keep the phone and at the same time i want to keep the monthly payment low. I will pay them off $240 after 6 months. I believe you can also make the finance payments anytime as well, so you can just pay the plan payments.

For Telus EPP, remember to refer your co-workers for a $50 bill credit for both your referral and yourself!
I was told that the person referred can only enroll in a 2year plan to make the referral work.

Hey all,

After long reading, and a few pages back someone else posted a question and never got a response, so I thought I’d try again.

Spouse works for Fed government, so I definitely think eligible for Telus EPP.

Question is, if we were to get the 50GB share plan, what would be the cost of adding an additional line, and sharing two lines from the data bucket? If the price is right, it may be feasible for us to switch (one with Koodo, one with Fizz)

Get a minimum of one phone (we have iPhone X, and XS respectively) to flip. I just don’t want to go through it without knowing because the process is slow (no access to work email off the intranet).

If anyone can answer this question, or point me in a specific direction?

Thanks :)

If you keep the phone and you consider the time value of money, it’s almost always better to go with the lease. Paying $300 at the end of the contract is always better than paying monthly, regardless of what you sell the phone for at the end.

I know what you're thinking, you cant do that anymore. Each line now has to have their own data plan, share plans just mean your pool is even bigger. You can not buy one 50gb share plan and then add a cheaper ex.$40 talk only line to share it

Seeking opinions from the forum dwellers regarding Telus EPP vs Telus business lines. Telus provides a discount of $20 per line when 4 or more lines are activated on a business account. Since my small business would require 4 lines, I am considering moving all the lines over to that program (currently have 3 lines with Koodo and just moved 1 line (which was the 4th with Koodo) over to Telus EPP, which I was eligible for through a professional association). The business plan would actually work out to a small overall cost saving (approximately $8 per month after all is said and done). This would give all 4 lines access to unlimited data (on Telus) vs capped data (on Koodo), with the same size data buckets as we currently have for each line, but does swap international text messaging (on Koodo) for Canada-only text messaging (on Telus). Are there any other downsides or "gotchas" I should be aware of with regard to the Telus business lines over an EPP line? Any insight/suggestions would be appreciated.

Then perhaps you and other travelers need to voice their concerns to their City Council member and tell them it's almost 2020 and other cities across Canada have Wifi on their transit buses.. you want my vote, put WiFi on my train!
they will surely do that for a fare increase of 20%. Everything has a price to pay my dear.

You are actually better off going with the lease or bring it back and using it as a %0 loan. No point in paying the $300 up front when you can just pay the same $300 at the end.

I see absolutely no down side of doing the bring it back program. You save upfront cost and have more flexibility at the end of your term. It's really a no-brainer.
