Earlier today TELUS dropped the gauntlet by eliminating the $35 activation and $25 renewal fees (but charging $10 for SIM cards for new customers) forever. Now, the company has also reduced the price of unlocking for the iPhone and other devices to $35 (via MobileSyrup) compared to when it first launched in June for $50.

Here’s the process on how to unlock your iPhone with TELUS if you haven’t seen it already.
This is great news for customers as this move by TELUS will quickly be matched by Rogers (Bell does not unlock iPhones yet). To clarify, as we stated in our article profiling the TELUS iPhone unlock all it requires is a device to be activated for 90 days on a monthly term, while Rogers will only unlock after your subsidy is paid off (and account in good standing).
Who’s excited for this?
