Third-party vendors provide customers with a method to download pay-per-use applications and Web-based services (i.e. Mobile Dating and Social Networking sites) and pay for the chargeable content by applying it to their TELUS invoice.
How it works
Order wireless applications directly from a vendor’s site.
Downloads are charged to your TELUS invoice as an application purchase instead of having to use a credit card or PayPal payment process.
You have a simpler way to find, order, and pay for wireless applications.
If you never subscribed to a service
If you think that these charges are invalid, you will need to contact the vendor directly to dispute the charges. If you’re not sure who the vendor is, ask us here and we will let you know.
