Telus Updates Student 55 iPhone Plan With Flex Data


In November 2010, Telus introduced “Flex Data” to its existing iPhone plans. Now, Telus has expanded the Flex Data to their Student 55 iPhone plan.

Student $55 iPhone plan

The new Student $55 iPhone voice & data plan with flex data keeps the same base voice plan such as the minutes, evenings, My10, and available promotions but now has flexible data.

What flexible data means is at the $55 price, users get 1GB of data. If that data amount is exceeded, instead of paying per MB overage fees, the plan is automatically bumped to $75 with 2GB of data. If 2GB of data is exceeded, the plan is bumped to $95 with 5GB of data. Anything over 5GB however is charged at $0.05/MB.

Each month, the $55 plan resets back to the lowest $55/1GB tier and then increases again when the data is exceeded during the month.

For reference, the plan is detailed below:

  • Minutes: 200 daytime
  • Evenings/Weekends: Unlimited @ 6Pm
  • Data: 1GB
  • Promotions: Unlimited Text/Picture/Video messages, My10 Nationwide, Free Voicemail 3

So if you’re a student and looking to get an iPhone with Telus service, give this plan a look.

    Note that only basic voicemail 3 is incleded in the student 55 plan. It s $5 per month for voicemail display option.

  • This trumps Bell’s comparative student plan.

    Telus could pay me to use their services and I would still refuse to have Telus phone.
    Remember, you get for what you paid. In the case of Telus, you pay less to have more incompetant services.

    I had to google my plan in order to find out how much data I even had… pretty sad I couldnt find this on my telus account.  Decent plan but get with it telus…

    Wow going Throo the same right now… Telus customer service sucks these days…

    Telus, worst customer service EVER… unless you’re on “pay-as-u-go”. I tried to check my data limits. And it’s not even posted on my account… Everyone needs to stop signing Telus contracts. That’s is when they forgot what loyal customers they had. And started treating people like idiots….
