    NFC + weak $ means their cost went up. So of course they passed that on, with a <cough> 'fair' markup.

    I'd love to win this, 'cause then I might be able to trade yesterday's winner for their more manageable 5X :)

    I can never renew a contract again or I'll lose my reasonably priced, reasonably sized data allowance. I'd love an upgrade from this GS4 that I tolerate, but dislike.

    Pre to post is what Telus wants (guaranteed revenue), so there are migrations on the account automatically. OP asked about Post to pre.

    As far as I know, the only way to accomplish this is to port the number out to another carrier (yes really), then port it in to the new prepaid account you set up. Sure hope you don't like that new...

    If I were to buy one it would be from Google, direct. I'm just trying to wrap my mind around why Telus would launch the 6P at par, but mark the 5X up by $131.
  11. HSPA: Good to know; they used to charge for shipping, I...

    Good to know; they used to charge for shipping, I didn't think to check whether that had changed. I wonder if $130 markup is consistent though the rest of the lineup.

    The 6P 32 is $699CA direct from Google, & $700 from Telus (which is actually good, since there's no S&H).
    The 5X 16 is $499CA direct, or supposed to be priced against the iPhone 5S from Telus, which...
  13. HSPA: Nexus 5X - To be priced for the shareholders?

    A number of sites have already reported that Telus will offer the Nexus 5X. If what a little birdie told me is true, I really hope they reconsider their pricing. A stone's throw from the 6P is...

    I know all of the design elements have been used on previous HTC models, but it still looks like they threw an M7, iPhone 6 and S6 in a blender. Not that that's a bad thing.

    Not entirely true; if OP is on a business account of 10+ units (just as for corporate accounts), 3 year contracts are still in effect and also still obtainable. The CRTC ruling only applies to...

    SurePress was a capacitive screen mounted on top of a button (or 5 acting as 1 in the 2nd edition). I don't recall touch release actually activating anything, so you basically moved a 'cursor' with...

    Unethical is creating artificial restrictions so you can charge most of your customers twice as much for the exact same service.

    The last phone I bought was a used HTC One (M7) because I got a screaming deal very soon after it launched, and I wasn't entirely loving the Nexus 4 I'd purchased from Google Play. One 50%-off 3rd...

    SK, & MB are about the only parts of the country that don't desperately NEED Wind service; they already have 4 strong players and thus reasonable pricing.
