Is it possible to have a data-only flex plan for a phone on Telus's network? Alternatively, would a prepaid data add on (no plan) work, or do I need a plan of sorts regardless?

It is not possible to have data only flex plans for smartphones on a monthly plan. It's only possible for tablets. You can also have data only packages if you go on prepaid

Thanks, WongTong. The prepaid option sounds good. The wording on Telus's site is a bit confusing, as the data is called an "add on", and the "Getting Started" page for Prepaid says to pick a rate plan and add on.

You can simply activate an add-on. No other rate plan needed when on prepaid. See here for available data add-ons http://mobility.telus.com/en/QC/prepaid/add-ons.shtml
