Telus is offering refurbished 16GB iPhone 4S models for $349 outright online, part of their ‘web exclusive’ offers on ‘refreshed’ smartphones.
Apple sells brand new 8GB unlocked iPhone 4S models for $450. These Telus models are refurbished for $349 but locked to Telus. So if you end up paying $35 to unlock the phone from Telus, you are saving about $65 and you get 16GB instead of 8GB (but your iPhone isn’t brand new).
If you’re into contracts, you can get the phone for $0 on a two year term with a minimum $60/month plan (voice + data). But if you’re going to do a contract, a brand new 8GB iPhone 4S is already $0 on two years.
With Telus Certified Pre-Owned Phones, they are physically inspected, undergo a functional test, network quality test and full system and software restoration. All phones have been used no more than 30 days maximum. iPhones come with a 6 month warranty.
