Earlier, we noted Rogers/Fido would start their iPhone 5 pre-orders at 6AM EDT (3AM PDT) on September 14th. Now, we have confirmation Telus will start their iPhone 5 pre-orders at 12AM PDT (3AM EDT)–the same time we saw last year’s iPhone 4S pre-orders kick off.
The time was noted by the @Telus twitter account:

Keep an eye out on this page: http://preorder.telusmobility.com/ once the clock strikes midnight PDT (3AM EDT).
As for pricing, Bell revealed earlier today 16GB iPhone 5 units will start at $179.95 on a three year contract. We can assume 32/64GB models will be priced accordingly at $289.95/$389.95, based on last year’s upgrade pricing.
Thanks Skylar and DaBes!

Update (Sept.20, 4:45pm PDT): According to our commenter ‘Polish Hacker’:
Just finished speaking with a Telus Shipping Representative at (6:00 EST), she said that a huge amount of orders are being prepared to be shipped Tonight! She said that if you live close to Mississauga/Concord Ontario you are very likely to receive your iPhone 5 by Friday the 21st. If for some reason the shipping companies can’t fulfill the orders by Friday you will receive your iPhone by the following Monday or Tuesday, she said all the orders are High Priority Shipments. Tracking Info should be emailed out later today or very early Friday morning.
