    Mike® is retiring

    No surprise here but I received the following notice:

    "Dear Valued Business Client,
    After nearly 20 years of providing individuals an businesses across Canada with Mike® voice, Direct Connect®, and data services over the iDEN network, TELUS will be discontinuing the service on January 29, 2016. This change is required as iDEN technology is reaching the end of its service life and major equipment suppliers are no longer producing and supporting compatible phones and network equipment.

    TELUS will continue to maintain iDEN network coverage, performance and reliability for the next 12 months until January 29, 2016. However, we are no longer able to activate or renew Mike devices with one, two, or three year contract term pricing. If needed, Mike handsets are available for purchase while supplies last.

    .....

    Since we cannot activate new MiKE lines, Plz if someone wants to cancel his MiKE line, I am ready to transfer the responsibility under my name instead. Because i need the service until it's death...in Jan 2016.



    Thanks,
    The future is friendly

    Still working in Victoria too. Last week I noticed a CBSA officer with a MiKE phone on his uniform. Maybe PS users have an extension?
