Wind Mobile to release “lightly loved” iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c

A year ago, Wind Mobile’s chairman Tony Lacavera said the carrier had 25,000 iPhones across its 735,000 subscribers. Customers with an iPhone on Wind have to bring them to them into the store as they are not officially part of their device lineup. However, today, Wind “has more than 800,000 happy customers in Canada” and seems ready to expand the number of iPhones on its network.

While not the new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, “It is with great excitement we announce WIND will carry ‘lightly loved’ iPhone models beginning on Thursday, June 25 2015. WIND will carry these two models in 16GB configuration only,” reveals an internal document we received.

The iPhone 5s will be available in metallic grey, and iPhone 5c will only be offered in white. This is different than the usual “lightly loved” devices that Wind sells – a fancy for saying refurbished – because each comes with a six-month warranty from the date of purchase­­.

As for price, the cost is $499 for an iPhone 5s and $349 for an iPhone 5c, outright. Customers will also be able to purchase these refurbished devices on all Tab options, which drops the pricing down to $0 with a monthly “boost.”

Below is the complete price list:
