In March, Telus discounted the 8GB iPhone 3GS to $0.00 on a 3-year voice and data agreement. The promotion was originally ending in March, which was then extended into April 10 and now extended again into May.
However, like the previous promotion extension, customers may choose between the 8GB iPhone 3GS (black) or the 32 GB iPhone 3GS (black).
Purchased at a Telus Store
If you’re looking for an 8 GB or 32 GB iPhone 3GS, Telus is giving them away for free on a $50 or higher 3-year contract. It is a great price for the iPhone 3GS; free!
- iPhone 3GS 8 GB Black (on contract): $0.00 (was $49.00)
- iPhone 3GS 8 GB Black (without contract): $549.00 (locked to Telus)
- iPhone 3GS 32 GB Black (on contract): $0.00

All new iPhone 3GS units already have iOS 4.0 or later preloaded out of the box.
Purchased at an Apple Store
Customers who purchase the 8 GB iPhone 3GS outright (no contract) at $549 from an Apple Store will have the device unlocked. The 32 GB iPhone 3GS is not available at Apple Stores.
Customers who purchase the 8 GB iPhone 3GS on contract for $0.00 from an Apple Store will have the device locked to Telus (just as if you bought the device at Telus for $0.00). The 32 GB iPhone 3GS is not available at Apple Stores.
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 (for free) if purchased outright.
