I think I should tell telus to switch it to 2 year since they are forgetful on switching it or they they are doing to make money.

Think there might be some confusion on what the CRTC's Wireless Code of Conduct actually means for consumers, all they mandated was that carriers can no longer offer 3 year terms & that by June 2015, all customer contracts must be compliant with the new rules. If you're on a 3-year contract right now, nothing has changed and you are still held to the original terms you agreed to. 

 

FYI, if/when you choose to renew, TELUS will ask you to spend >$70/month on a 2-year term vs. the old minimum of $50/month on a 3-year term.

... and this is great for Apple, Samsung, other phone manufacturers, etc. With this change, more people will buy a new phone every 2 years instead of 3.

Nearly 20yrs ago, cell providers gave you a choice of 0, 1, 2, or 3 year contracts. Longer term meant your phone cost is lower.

It appears nearly everyone saw the low price for 3 years and all contracts became 3 years. The main problem is many smartphones with non-removable batteries (aka iPhone 3) would fail after 18 months. Thus complaints to get out of contracts and we now have shorter contracts, but higher rates.

Thanks Apple???
