    Default Canadian Carrier Telus Slashes iPhone 4 Price to $99


    Canadian Carrier Telus is the first carrier to slash the price of the iPhone 4 to CAD$99 ahead of the iPhone 5 launch.

    Users signing a 3-year plan (and I though two years was bad) with telus will see the price of the iPhone 4 drop from CAD$159.95 to CAD$99, but the offer is only available until September 7th. The end date to this deal seems a little odd considering the latest reports peg the iPhone 5 launch date on October 7th, with pre-orders starting September 28th or 29th.

    Other reports are claiming that Best Buy could be offering the iPhone 3GS for free with a two-year plan starting August 22nd in conjunction with a major promotion leading up to the new iPhone's launch.

    This is only the beginning to what is likely going to be a very long month of waiting and retail and carrier specials.

    Ummmm....ya no. Try using a currency conversion site next time. $99.99CAD is roughly $101.30 American.

    3 years is too long to be locked into a contract. Period.

    i signed up with Mobilicity and got a $25 unlimited plan including data. I tether my iPhone 4 to it lol! $50 is a rip-off.
    60% of the time, it works every time.

    With most Canadian carriers, contracts are 3 years but you can get a upgrade after 2 for the same price as a new contract

    Well you'd have to sign a contract in Canada, so no, not really.

    You can't buy a subsidized iPhone from the Big 3 (Rogers, Bell and Telus) without a 3 year contract. They are all in Cahoots with no competition, offering the same plans at the same price point.
