Check your TELUS Mobility cell phone messages from any phone and even set it up so you receive your voicemail messages by text or email.
Program your PVR with your phone or tablet.
You’re at the airport and suddenly remember that you forgot to set up your PVR to record Dancing with the Stars while you’re away. Not a problem with the Optik Smart Remote app. Set and manage your PVR recordings on the go from any Apple or Android device.
If you’re a snowbird heading south for the winter or working up north for a few months, you’ll also have to think about who’s going to mow the lawn or shovel the snow, what to do with your mail and how much a goldfish-sitter is.
I can’t help you with your fish but here are some TELUS travel tips:
Make sure you’re on TELUS e.Bill
A paper bill in your mailbox isn’t much good when you’re not there to open it. A TELUS e.Bill shows up in your email inbox on your phone or computer wherever you happen to be. Switch to e.Bill for your home service and your mobility service.
Set up pre-authorized payments
TELUS offers several ways to pay your bill but the easiest way is by pre-authorized payment. Set the payments to come out of your bank account or credit card and it’s one less thing to worry about while you’re travelling away from home.
Put your service on hold
You’re going to be away for three months and you don’t want to pay for TV in an empty home or your cell phone while it sits in a drawer. Instead of paying a cancellation fee, put your TELUS Mobility service and/or home services on hold for a reduced charge. If you have a home security system that requires a home phone or internet connection you’ll want to leave those active but save some money and suspend anything you don’t need.
Whatever takes you away from home, TELUS wants to do our part to help make it stress-free.
