Canadian carrier Telus has cut some of its contract prices for the iPhone ahead of launching the iPhone 4. A brand new 32GB 3GS can now be had for $149, while a refurbished version of the same unit costs $99. Similarly, a new 16GB 3GS is $99, and a refurbished model is $49. An iPhone 3G can be had for free alongside a subscription.
All of the above prices do, however, involve a three-year contract, in contrast to many other countries, where people have the option of two-year or even 18-month agreements for an iPhone. A contract-free 32GB 3GS is priced at $799 with Telus, while 16GB lowers the cost to $699. The carrier should be one of several selling the Canadian iPhone 4 when it launches in July; none of them have announced prices.
