Could it really be happening? 3-year contracts on the way out? Probably not, but TELUS has started to sell select smartphones on a 2-year contract for $0. It’s part of a promo they have going on now for the big Q4 holiday push and although it’s not the latest and greatest iPhone or Android handsets, it’s a start. According to the internal doc we received it states that the LG Optimus Black, Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate 4G, Samsung Nexus S, HTC Desire HD and the iPhone 3GS 8GB have all been knocked down to $0 on a 2-year term. Something to think about, and TELUS notes that “The competition has yet to follow suit, which gives TELUS a definitive competitive advantage.”
