This week, Telus became the first Canadian wireless carrier to discount the 8GB iPhone 3GS to $49.00 on a 3-year voice and data agreement.
Purchased at a Telus Store
As the iPhone 4 is in full swing and 16/32GB models of iPhone 3GS are removed from sale, the 8GB iPhone 3GS comes in at the lowest price ever for a brand-new iPhone.
If you are looking for a deal and do not care much for the iPhone 4, then check out the iPhone 3GS from Telus:
- iPhone 3GS 8GB Black (on contract): $49.00 (was $99.00; $50 price drop)
- iPhone 3GS 8GB Black (without contract): $549.00 (locked to Telus)
All new iPhone 3GS units already have iOS 4.0 or 4.0.1 preloaded, so the device is completely ready to go out of the box.
Purchased at an Apple Store
Users who purchase the 8GB iPhone 3GS outright (no contract) at $549 from an Apple Store will have the device unlocked. Users who purchase the 8GB iPhone 3GS on contract for $49 from an Apple Store will have the device locked to Telus (just as if you bought the device at Telus for $49).
Customers purchasing at an Apple Store will receive a Telus SIM card in-store when purchasing on contract, or will get to choose any carrier SIM card if purchased outright.
