iPhone Price Cuts: Free 3GS from Best Buy and $99 iPhone 4 from Telus


As the iPhone 5 gets closer to release, resellers are starting to offer reduced pricing on older iPhones.

Canadian carrier Telus is offering the iPhone 4 for CAD$99 with a 3-year plan. The Telus deal runs through September 7.

We are also hearing that Best Buy will be offering the 3GS for free with a 2-year plan on August 22 as part of a larger promotion. Best Buy has done this particular promotion in the past, as well.

3 year plans suck ass. I don't get why we have to be locked in for so long for more money and less services then most us carriers. Greed is all I can say.

Wow a 3 year plan, I hate one-year plans, I couldn't imagine being tied in for that long. This doesn't even sound like an eye-catching deal!

The Telus deal runs through September 7.


There's that Sept. 7th date again ;)

Also I agree that Canadian customers really get screwed by the "Big 3" in Canada (Telus, Rogers and Bell). There's very little competition, although new carriers like Wind Mobile have recently arrived. But they don't offer the iPhone and have very limited coverage.

Canadian carriers really need to push these deals on 2-year contracts, considering the phones retail for the same price in the US and the contract deals are also the same value, but US has 2-year standard while Canadians do 3 (so we pay 50% more for subsidized phones).

Don't like 2 or more year plans? Stop signing up for them!

Seriously, the only people who can change this outrageous behaviour by carriers is consumers.

Canadians already have 3 year plans. Before we know it, they will be standard across the globe and some plans will last 5 years. You don't even have some personal relationships for that length of time, so why tie yourself to some faceless corporation for that period?

Thr.....three years?! My 2.2 year old 3GS barely chugs through the day. My 1.7 year old Edge iPhone that the 3GS replaced had a ton of gray hairs on its last day too. But *three* years stuck with one of these?? Are Canada's telecoms simply bulletproof against market forces and consumer desires?

free ip3gs w/2yr plan - not bad


Not bad? By the time your 2 year contact expires you'll have a phone that is 5 years old!

You'd put your hand up to pay a two year contract on 3Gs knowing the the next iOS update you do will be the last, God knowing what it will to to the phone's preformance

I can understand that someone might buy one outright, not wanting to be tied to a contract and hence assecpt it's limitations.

I would think that the 3Gs would be dropped with the release of the iP5 and the iP4 will be delegated to the 3Gs' current place

I think apple rushes the iPhones. i think that the upgrade from 3gs to 4 is huge yes, but with iOS 5 coming out what is new that can possibly make me want to go from 4 to 5, 1080p 64 gig? nah i don't need it i might as well wait till 6 since the update is 100 percent compatible and supportive of the iPhone 4.
