jattdesi is right. Somehow refurb Telus prepaid phones come with a generic prepaid card that can be used on any account as a refill. Brand new Telus prepaid phones now come w/ Activation Credit only, unlike the Prepaid Activation Kit that came w/ the phone years ago. The amount is also smaller than what it was. At one time, some phones even came with $50. Activation Credit and $25. additional refill card, making it $75. in total. Those were the good days.
Now $100. refill card is good for 1 year. That is probably the best bet on the long run.
