    These strongly evoke GS6, but I think the round camera bump actually makes them look a lot better. Not wild about the stripy back, but assuming the black dots on the bottom of the first image are...

    They have better prices than the sad joke that are current in-market plans, but not grandfathered-plan better.

    New unactivated SIM? I don't believe so. A previously activated SIM can only be reactivated within 90 days on the same account (& number?) though.

    I have an S7 not edge, and it indicates carrier aggregation with "LTE+" in the status bar. It just now pegged the Speedtest needle at a tick over 100mbps.

    The trade-in bonus is on offer until June 30, or Telus changes their mind.

    Business promos aren't published/public, so I'm afraid I can't go into them. Also, they're far more varied and...

    Trade-in offer has been extended and simplified: trade in any device (no more special cases for GS4 & GS5) for a new GS7/edge and get the assessed value + a $125 bonus to put towards the handset...

    Given that 'the authorities' are frequently running into issues accessing encrypted iPhones (NSA aside), I'd imagine they still feel pretty secure. Apple has already requested details of the exploit...

    I loved my M7, and much prefer Sense to TouchWiz, but I already picked up a GS7. I've grown tired of being paranoid about liquid damage, and always bringing a ziplock if there is a chance of rain,...

    Ok, the iPhone 6S/+ sale is over for most of the country, but the trade-in promo should remain until the end of the month (subject to Telus's whim).

    Minor correction: according to a Samsung rep I asked, Canadian S7's also ship with Exynos. I was told only US variants use the 820, because they still need CDMA modems (which Exynos does not offer).

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

    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.
