iPhone 4 on Telus?

I visited our local Best Buy and chatted with a helpful salesperson there who said that Telus was launching the iPhone 4 on Monday (August 23rd) in Saskatchewan. It seems like Telus could be the answer to my iPhone 4 woes I’ve been occupying your time with.

Benefits/Drawbacks/Neutral Thoughts

Neutral: Same hardware pricing as everywhere, data & voice plans are the same as far as I can tell so far, possibly better roaming agreements in the states/overseas but not really sure.

Benefits: Shared network agreement with Sasktel, visual voicemail is apparently included in their data plan (Rogers tacks on $8/month for it), better national coverage than Rogers.

Drawbacks: I feel like there should be more because I’ve just always had it in my head that it went, in Saskatchewan anyway, Sasktel, Rogers then Telus/Virgin/the rest.

Now I’m not so sure – any thoughts? Leave a comment or drop me an email.

Update:

Telus to Soon Announce HSPA Coverage in Saskatchewan Besides the terrible headline writing, that seems to be confirmation.

  1. I don't know what to do. I need a new phone, asap (no contract, battery is fried, all I have is a car-charger, flip hinges are starting to go). But, the only phone I want is an iPhone. I would rather go with Sasktel, but if they don't have anything to offer, I don't really have another choice. I'll have to look into the plans telus will offer)

    I might have to make my decision soon though, seeing as Telus' iPhones will probably disappear by the end of Monday.
