    Default Activation required? (Future Shop/ Best Buy)

    Looking online I found Z10's going for 649 at both of these stores to reserve in store. Only catch is it says " Activation Required". Now as an existing Telus customer looking to buy out right and keep my current contract going, can someone please explain to me wtf this is. I tried calling them yesterday twice and both times the person couldn't get me through to the mobile department.

    Because your a current customer they should not give you any issues because they are going on to an account.

    If not, go to T-Booth. I have got 3 Z's off of contract for full retail with no issues.

    What that means is that Best Best Buy and Future Shop (same company) in Canada have a policy that says if you're not upgrading, porting or starting an entirely new line, they won't sell you a phone.

    However, you can just go to Walmart and pay $648.00 and they'll throw in a free MicroSIM (Telus Z10's don't have them in the box) and let you walk out of the store and call client care or use your online account to swap the phone.

    I plan on only using the z10 instead of my 9860 under my current contract that has roughly a year and a half left on it. Does that pass as porting?
