BlackBerry Bold 9700 and Motorola Milestone for Free on Contract - TELUS Gives a Special Offer

Canadian wireless carrier Telus has put in place a new special offer for its users, with two highly appealing smartphones, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and the Motorola Milestone available for free on contract. The promotion started on Monday, but there are still some good 40 hours or so left for those interested in one of these devices to take advantage of it.

What should be noted right from the start is that the deal is available for new activations only, and that those looking to upgrade won’t benefit from it.

The 72 hour sale is exclusive for online purchases and includes the aforementioned post-paid devices, along with two pre-paid phones in the carrier’s offering, namely the LG Keybo 2 – Refurbished and the LG 490 Fastap – Refurbished.

Free of contract, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and Motorola Milestone would cost $449.99 and $549.99, respectively, while the two prepaid phones are available at usual prices of $59.99 and $49.99, respectively.

According to TELUS, the deal is “available online only until April 27, for clients who activate on a new 1, 2 and 3 year term with a Voice and Data rate plan of $50 or greater. TELUS reserves the right to modify eligible rate plans with this offer at any time without advance notice.”

The good news, of course, is that users would be able to purchase one of the said smartphones for free without committing to a lengthy 3-year contract agreement with the wireless carrier. Not to mention that the smartphones are as appealing as they can be.

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 lands on shelves with a great deal of communication features, along with fast Internet browsing capabilities, access to applications available for download via the Android Market, and with the popular Bold outer design.

The Motorola Milestone was released with Google’s Android operating system on board, and provides support for various Google Mobile Services, a large touchscreen display, QWERTY keyboard, access to applications via the Android Market, and more.

Canadian users interested in benefiting from this deal at TELUS should head over to the carrier’s website here to learn more on it.

TELUS Makes Smartphones Free Until March 31st

Canadian mobile phone carrier TELUS has just kicked off a new appealing promotion for its customers, with a wide range of smartphones made available for free upon the signing of contract agreements with the operator. Those Canadians interested in taking advantage of this offer would have to commit to a new 2-or 3-year contract agreement with the wireless services provider, on a $50 per month or higher plan.

Until March 31st, the carrier’s smartphone lineup, save for the Android-based HTC Desire HD and Samsung Galaxy Apollo, can be purchased for free.

Appealing Android devices were included in this promotion, such as the HTC Desire, the LG Optimus One with Google, Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate 3G+, Motorola Charm, LG Shine Plus with Google, the Motorola Backflip, or the Motorola Milestone.

In addition to these handsets, TELUS customers can also opt for free BlackBerry smartphones, including the BlackBerry Style 9670, BlackBerry Bold 9780, BlackBerry Bold 9700, BlackBerry Torch 9800, BlackBerry Pearl 3G, or the BlackBerry Curve 3G and the BlackBerry Curve 8530.

The wireless carrier also made the LG Optimus 7 and HTC 7 Surround Windows Phone 7 devices available for free, along with the already highly popular Nokia E72 smartphone.

Unfortunately, the HTC Desire HD would still go for $99.99 on a three-year contract agreement, while the Samsung Galaxy Apollo was priced at $49.99.

Moreover, we should note that the Canadian operator did not lower the price tag of the Apple iPhone 4 either.

Undoubtedly, the wireless carrier is trying to clear up some inventory to make room for newer handsets that should make it to its offering soon, such as the Nexus S, the Samsung Galaxy Fascinate 4G, and more, including a 42Mbps Internet Stick, as the guys over at MobileSyrup note in a recent article.
