TELUS iPhone 5c Pricing: $129 for 16GB, $229 for 32GB, 2 Year Terms


TELUS has launched iPhone 5c pre-orders for new and existing customers this early morning and two year contract pricing has been revealed for the first time in Canada:

  • 16GB iPhone 5c – $129 ($99 in the USA)
  • 32GB iPhone 5c – $229 ($199 in the USA)
TELUS will deliver orders free of charge and there are no activation fees.

So it looks like there’s a $30 premium for the iPhone 5c on two year terms in Canada compared to the USA. This year, unlocked iPhone 5c pricing is also $50 more in Canada compared to our US neighbours.

As for the existing iPhone 5, TELUS has lowered two year term pricing for remaining stock:

  • 16GB iPhone 5 – $129 (previously $199)
  • 32GB iPhone 5 – $179 (previously $299)
  • 64GB iPhone 5 – $229ย (previously $399)

The 16GB iPhone 4S is free on contract as well as the 8GB iPhone 4, which hasn’t died just yet. Note the 16GB iPhone 5 is the same price as the 16GB iPhone 5c; the same goes for the 64GB iPhone 5 and the 32GB iPhone 5c.

Anyone going to pre-order their iPhone 5c from TELUS?

    Nope. Telus has increased the minimum cost of a plan to get the subsidy to $70. These new plans also come with almost no data (starting @ 250MB!). I currently have 3GB for $60. So I’ll stay month to month to keep my awesome plan and save another year to buy the iphone directly from Apple unlock for $900. ๐Ÿ™ I had only saved $500 thinking I would be going back on contract to get the subsidy.

    Also just a month or two ago I upgraded from $55 plan with 1 GB of data, 150 min talk, 10 favorite numbers to the $60 plan unlimited nationwide talk and text and 3GB of data.

    So how in a month or two does their plans lose 12 times the data they had before and go up $10 a month? Total BS!

    iPhone 5c 16GB $129.99

    iPhone 5s 16GB $229.99
    iPhone 5s 32GB $329.99

  • I think this is a price point the carriers should have been able to match, considering how much more expensive the plans are. How hard would it have been for them to subsidize that extra $30, even if Apple might be charging them an extra $30 for the phone?

    I would have recommended you guys to pickup a wind sim and grab an unlocked 5 (1700/2100 bands included model, after April 2013)/5C/5S – 33$ gets me unlimited everything thats including unlimited DATA + 20 months of unlimited US calls. Then again I dont leave Toronto much (apart from travelling to NYC) so do think twice about sticking to these 3 thugs.

  • Would love to, but I live outside of Windโ€™s service area. ๐Ÿ™

  • steve

    The only problem with that is that iMessage and FaceTime will not work with your Wind phone number. I hope I’m wrong on this, because I want to switch to Wind.

  • steve

    How’d you get the 20 months of unlimited US calls? Are you referring to the $300 bring your own device credit that pays for that extra for 20 months?

  • steve

    throw it on the credit card and forget about it. just kidding.

  • Hasan Choudhury

    Yah, I took the bring your own device credit. $200 (as I have the 30/month plan)

  • Hasan Choudhury

    Facetime and iMessage is working for me on Wind! I think you can seriously consider it now.

  • grantalias

    I wish ๐Ÿ™
