    a very credible poster over at howard forums has posted that telus has hammered out a deal with apple to launch the iphone. According to howard forums this will be happening in october. He goes on to say that telus will be switching over to HSPA in september and then launch the iphone the following month.

    theres at least 2 people I work with are already plotting and planning. lol

    In all honestly if telus has offered it back in december I wont have bought a storm. I have a pretty bad taste in my mouth in regards to the device and they way rim has rolled out and hung us 9530/9500 users out to dry.

    Wow that is good news. Now if only Verizon would get it my feeling is you would see a lot of the younger aged BB users switch in a heartbeat. Nice find.

    I guess more inportantly are they will they be breaking the long standing no wifi issue when HSPA is up and running.
    The way I hear it they are dropping the unlimited data plans and will not be grandfathering any plans. instead they will be offering a 6 gig plan and a 500mb package. If you have an exsisting conteract like I do your rates/plan wont change but if you want to re sign a new one. The u/l data will no longer be offered.

    Again this is just what I've heard no hard info ..take it for what it's worth

    So Telus doesn't implement wifi? That's one of the best features with the iPhone is that when your surfing Safari with wifi wow it is truly like having the internet in your pocket. What they have done with the web, multimedia and gaming has revolutionized the mobile phone world. Once they figure out the whole email thing, RIM will be screwed.
