Telus cuts iPhone 4 to $99, gives Android phones for free

updated 07:05 pm EDT, Thu August 18, 2011

Android deals end September 7

Telus has lowered the price on one of its iPhones, and is running special promotions on several of its Android smartphones. The Canadian wireless provider is now selling the 16GB iPhone 4 for $99, down from its usual $159. It's simultaneously giving away Android smartphones from five different vendors for free with a three year contract in a time-limited deal that ends September 7.

The price for an iPhone without a contract remains $649.

The provider is handing out the LG Optimus Black and Nexus S White, phones that normally sell for $400 ($404 USD) and $500 ($505 USD) without contract respectively, for free with any $50 ($51 USD) plan. Telus is also giving away the INQ Cloud Touch, the HTC Status, and Motorola Defy with any three-year agreement.

Telus' cuts suggest it's ramping down stock of most of the phones, a number of which are several months old. The iPhone 4 is most notable and supports beliefs Apple is finally getting close to an iPhone 5 revision that most anticipate for October.

    Still isn't worth upgrading to iPhone in BC the way Telus has set their price if your on a Pay & Talk plan. iPhones are going to have get a lot cheaper before I even think about buying one.
