It's been over a month since the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ hit the market and the overwhelming consensus is that it's a winner. Of course, it's one thing to distill (impersonal) sentiment from a large user base but quite another to hear about it from someone we trust.
From June 5th until the end of the contest, comment "I’m in" on this blog post.
On June 10, 2017 9AM PT, we will provide the clues needed to find the identified Neighbourhood pages.
We will comment the following picture on the selected posts.
Once you've found it, make sure to like the picture comment.

I can’t believe it’s over. I waited with bated breath for this year’s conference to begin and no sooner did it kick off, am I now sitting here by my lonesome contemplating life after I/O. Maybe I’m being a bit dramatic but boy, I’m going to miss it.
If there are any comparable moments in my life that elicited the same feeling of anticipation in the weeks leading up to my Google I/O trip, it would have to be Christmas eve as a kid and the birth of my child. Is today real? Somebody pinch me.
As a senior product manager with the Device Acquisition team at TELUS, one of my main roles is to help bring technological enhancements to our network and, in-turn, our customers. I have worked on bringing to market some really sweet features like VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling. It can be argued that I have one of the coolest jobs at TELUS!
Here at TELUS, we’re always trying to innovate our products, but it’s not everyday that we launch a brand new service. So as one of the proud Product Managers for TELUS Pik TV, I thought I’d pull back the covers and give you a peek behind the scenes...
Have you ever wondered how a phone performs in the real world, before you buy it?
Us too! That’s why we had one of our Neighbourhood tech savvy users, Esteban Contreras, test the Samsung Galaxy S8 for everything from apps to the camera, in order to answer all of your questions live on the Neighbourhood.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 27th 8pm ET, and continue reading to learn how to submit your questions.
Back in September 2016, I found out TELUS was installing Fibre optic service in my neighbourhood. Knowing the kind of speeds that are possible on a fibre optic network, I knew I had to sign up. But it was important for me to first consider my environmental challenges against my requirements.
The digital era is in full swing and it has made our lives much more convenient. However, the abundance of personal information online also motivates cybercriminals to try and gain access to it as well. I want to talk to you about an initiative we’re working on but first, let’s talk about online security.
That feeling you get when you know a new phone is on the way can be as exciting as Christmas morning. There’s nothing quite like ripping open that crisp new packaging and being the first person ever to use it. There’s even that “new phone” smell.
We know that the wait can be excruciating and it’s no secret the process to get there isn’t always as quick and easy as making a trip to the nearest TELUS dealer and walking out with your new phone activated and ready to go. To assist you with this process, I’ve compiled a few articles I think will help you from ordering to accessorizing, and everything in between.
There are good surprises, then there are the ones that manifest itself as an unwelcome data charge on your monthly bill. Streaming media and sharing files all contribute to our ever-increasing consumption of mobile data so you’re probably left wondering how you’ll ever keep it under control.
Think for a second about how many different online accounts you use every day. We have email accounts, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, bank accounts and online shopping accounts, just to name a few. Collectively, almost our entire lives are contained in these accounts, and there is typically only one thing protecting all of these accounts from the prying eyes of hackers: a password. We've all forgotten passwords (yes, even me!) and have struggled to come up with a password that meets some strange set of requirements.
Our TELUS Neighbourhood Community Managers, Moderators and Power Users work hard behind the scenes to create content, maintain community health and ensure threads stay on topic and occasionally weigh-in where possible.
