Telus offers 8GB iPhone 3GS for no cost on 3-year contract

Telus has 8GB iPhone 3GS for free until March 31

Canadian wireless provider Telus has launched a limited time promo that has the 8GB iPhone 3GS free on a three-year contract. The deal lasts until March 31. With no contract, the handset costs $550 CAD ($561), or more than choosing the contract and accepting the early termination fee.

Users need to choose from one of three plans, ranging from the $50 CAD ($51) per month, 200-minute, 500MB plan to the $100 CAD ($102), 600-minute, 5GB plan.

If or when competitors Bell and Rogers follow suit remains to be seen. Right now, the same phone at Bell costs $100 CAD ($102) on a three-year contract, and $99 CAD ($101) at Rogers.

Free-on-contract iPhone 3GS pricing isn't new in other parts of the world and has been common in Europe, but the iPhone is rarely discounted as much in North America. A Radio Shack deal is also giving away the phone for free, but only with a trade-in. Price cuts were rare for Apple in the past few years but have been common in 2011, in part due to the threat of Android but likely also to help avoid oversupply until an iPhone refresh this summer.

    don't forget the bogo offer

    It's implied if the cost is $0 that you can buy one get one free as well.
    just sign two contracts, and you are all set.
