In November 2010, Telus introduced â€œFlex Dataâ€ to its existing iPhone plans. Then Telus expanded the Flex Data to their, at the time, Student 55 iPhone plan.
Eventually the student plan expired and Telus then reintroduced the plan but for $5.00 more at $60/month instead of $55. That $60 plan expired on March 1, 2011.
For reference, the $60 flex plan is detailed below:
- Minutes: 200 daytime
- Evenings/Weekends: Unlimited @ 6PM
- Data: 1GB
- Promotions: Unlimited Text/Picture/Video messages, My10 Nationwide, Free Voicemail 3
- Data flex details: At the $60 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 $80 with 2GB of data. If 2GB of data is exceeded, the plan is bumped to $100 with 5GB of data. Anything over 5GB however is charged at $0.05/MB.
Effective this week, Telus has reintroduced this plan but at $5.00 less. In other words, the plan is back to the original $55/month price. The details of the new $55 flex plan are available above.
