I was trying to sign up for a plan today online, and I already own my own, unlocked device. I checked out Telus plans a few weeks ago, and saw they offered a plan for bringing your own device, which was a cheaper option. However, today I was looking for those plans, and it seems as if they have been pulled from the website? Does this mean you can now only sign up for Telus by buying a new device, or is there no longer a discount for bringing your own device anymore?
Solved! Go to Solution.
BYOD has disappeared from Telus online, but shops like Tom Harris Cellular still show BYOD / SIM only plans. https://www.tomharris.com/telus-rate-plans/category/820/your-choice-plans-sim-only/
I deal with Tom Harris, but I haven't been into the shop for a while and so I have no idea if BYOD / SIM only is still valid in-shop. Wouldn't hurt to call and ask. I'd be super surprised to hear of Telus quitting unlocked phone service.
Dec 1 unlocking fees will be gone as mandated by the CRTC. I can't see BYOD not being popular, but not having it does force a customer to "Create a plan" for additional costs. Maybe @Mobility_Princess can chime in with some inside info.
