TELUS My Account Updated to Let You Block Data for Free for the Month

Telus has updated their My Account iPhone app to now allow customers to block their data for the month—for free.

Normally, Telus offers a $2 Data Block feature which blocks all data except for picture and video messages, available through their self-serve portal on the company’s website.

But now, within the Telus My Account iPhone app, a $0 Data Block option is available, the company explains. Here’s how to enable it in the app:

Plans/Travel > Data & Add-ons > Data Top-ups and Add-ons > Data

Blocking data is handy if you’re traveling outside of Canada and worried your kids will incur data overages from Smurf berry in-app purchases, surfing the Facebooks and more.
