Telus has just announced two new devices to add to their HTC linup. Telus already carries the P4000 and the S720 and now they have added the HTC Touch and S640 to their PDA selection.
Telus must have an excellent hookup with HTC since they are the first CDMA service providers in the world to get these phones.
The HTC Touch will be $499.99 without contract, $449 with 1 year, $399 with 2 year and $149 with three year.
The HTC S640 will be $449 without contracr, $399 with 1 year, $349 with 2 year and $149 with 3 year.
If your planning on getting these devices with contract read their fineprint:
“Available for clients who activate voice and data service on a 3-year contract with an Email, Web & Voice or Talk & Email plan of $45 or more, or any Voice Rate Plan $20 or more with an Email & Web add-on of $25 or more. Please review the rate plan offer information attached. TELUS reserves the right to modify eligible rate plans with this offer at any time without advance notice.”
You know that $6.95 System Access Fee (SAF) fee you see on your phone bill every month… Well it’s a big SCAM. Bell Mobility has even increased their “FEE” to $8.95!!
Service providers like ROGERS, FIDO, TELUS and BELL charge this fee claiming thats it’s a “Mandatory Government Fee” but the truth is that it hasn’t been mandatory for a several years.
An estimated 12 Billion dollars has been collected over the years from residents of Canada who own a cell phone. Think about it… $6.95 x 12 months = $83 x roughly half the population of Canada who owns a cell phone!! It is estimated that service providers collect around 1 Billion dollars a year from this so called “System Access Fee”.
Compared to other countries we already have one of the highest cellular rates and this just adds to it!! Don’t even get me started on Data plans!!
Want to do something about it? First off call your cell phone provider right now and start bi***ing and also fill out the form HERE for a class action law suit being filed against Rogers&Fido, Bell Mobility and Telus. Hopefully we win the case and we all get compensated!!
