I got the 10GB plan but paying $85 because of a phone upgrade. I also had to pay an upfront fee for the phone as well. My question is after the 2 years and the phone is paid off will the plan revert back to $60? I am basically paying $25 more a month but that is too pay the phone off ($600 over 2 years). If the plan won't revert back to $60 after the 2 years then its better to buy a phone out right and pay $60 a month. I can't get a hold of TELUS online chat and I can't even get through on *611.
"Also eager to figure out the email. Been on hold over 25min to try and figure this all out and, what's worse: calling from outside Canada because I'm out of the country until the weekend so I can't even walk to a real store!"
Chad, the $60 promotion is not offered in store to existing Telus customers. You could try logging into the chat instead of being on hold. Good luck with it
I can confirm that it is firstname.lastname@example.org. I got through on the phone after 2 hours and was told the system was down and they could not even access my account and so I should email the above. Come on Telus, can't you say that in your hold message so I don't have to waste my time there?
I, too, had difficulty understanding what the email in the message was... epb2? app2? apb2? I had sent an email to epp2 yesterday and got an automated reply from "employee verification service" which doesn't really sound like the right thing, but the CSR confirmed it was but advised me to send it again "just in case."
TELUS really flubbed it this time. After years of pushing the 'Customers First' mantra, weak attempts to boost digital adoption through the feature poor telus.com self-serve portal, lame attempts to get customers to turn off paper-bills & set up pre-authorized payments; the perfect opportunity came along to get everything TELUS wanted for Christmas through the $60 / 10 GB mobile phone plan. All TELUS had to do was set this up as an online self-serve only offer with all those conditions and your system would have crashed due to the flood of happy new customers signing up. Instead everything crashed and you spent (presumably) millions acquiring new pissed off customers in the most expensive way possible. Not only did TELUS demonstrate yet again they are a market follower being the last to jump on the bandwagon, they did exactly the opposite of what they claim to stand for. The only way to get this plan was to sit on hold for hours if you could get through to the call centre at all, sit on an endless chat queue that kept crashing, or go into one of the stores and wait in a long line. In my experience *611 didn't even connect, at one point there were over 8000 people in the chat queue ahead of me but the chat kept crashing, when I did find time to go into a store it was empty because the system had just crashed I was informed they couldn't help anyway due to other discounts on my non-contract plan (this was incorrect and demonstrated a general lack of knowledge by the poorly trained staff). In the end I was able to get the new plan but I have no more loyalty to TELUS and will switch providers when a cheaper plan is offered in the next upcoming price war. Freedom Mobile's network will only get bigger and their plan is $10 cheaper.
I had been a loyal Telus customer for 19 years. I have a cell phone and an iPad. I was about to switch to the 10gb for 60 plan. I managed to talk to an operator after waiting 8 hours over 3 days. I was told that the $ 60 plan doesn't apply to me as I share my data between my two devices and there is nothing they can do for me. I'm now very mad. Wny can't I get more data for less money?? I'm quitting Telus. I bought my phone outright so I can switch anytime with ZERO penalty. I had it..
I received an email Dec 27th saying I was eligible for the $60 10GB plan and would receive a callback in 5-7 days. The callback never came. I replied to the email inquiring and again received no response. I finally called TELUS myself and, three days later, am told that the plan is no longer available. Although the plan seems to have been available the first day I called, but again a lack of response from TELUS delayed things until now.
Customer service isn't rocket science. Keep your promises.
Surprising, as the deal ended on December 19, that Telus would be still sending offers more than a week later. Had you called in to get the deal, and been offered a call back at the time? They certainly weren't making cold offers on December 27!
I tried to contact them on Dec 17 and 18th, but given their problems on the phone and the web chat, was unable to get through. I sent them an email on December 18th indicating I was interested in the plan and had been trying to get through to them without success, and this was what they responded to on Dec 27th.
