Those of the Frozen North, rejoice – Telus has introduced a new unlock policy that will unlock a GSM handset for the comparatively paltry $50! Beginning February 15th, Canucks who have spent a minimum of 90 days under contract to Telus can bring in their handset for a little unlock action (Rogers, though already offering this service, requires a user fulfill the entirety of his or her contract first). Perhaps the best part of all this? The service will soon include the iPhone itself.
While the service doesn’t break one’s contract with Telus, it can still be useful while you wait for your contract to run out – utilizing prepaid SIM cards when traveling internationally, for instance. Don’t travel internationally? Well, no better time to start than now.
