    Sorry, lets try this again.
    My local Telus store just called and said the Passport will be launching on Telus Oct 2 !!!

    Awesome eh, my last thread stated the wrong date, and this one now has a typo in the title. What a goof. I should just go back to bed...
    I guess I was too excited to post this morning.
    So embarrassing....

    There, thread title fixed for you and other duplicate thread deleted too.

    Exciting news about Passport! I guess they didn't have pricing for you yet, did they?

    Your telus store is wrong. Telus already posted a bulletin for it. The launch is Sept 24th. Orders begin today and retail is $700. 2 year pricing is $200 for the first week and $250 after.

    It's only available to Telus employees, not to the general public yet.

    I dont, and I'd rather not post it for risk of getting in trouble. I think if you look through my post history I posted some info and images about the Bold 9900 release before it launched if you need some credibility to my claim.
    And yes, I am a Telus employee

    750 off contract? 150 more than in the US? Doesn't seem right....

    Hi, so do you know when it will be available to the public? I'm wondering whether to return the iPhone 6 I bought this morning! If it's this week I'd return it

    700 - 750 is not good enough.

    Even importing the American version will be cheaper.

    If it was 600 US, which is a good price, then I expect no more than 650 Canadian, which is the max I'm willing to pay.

    Guess I'm still not gonna get it then.

    It seems obvious you don't know that HST is 13%. If the US price is $599 and you factor in the currency exchange rate then CDN price should be around $649. Add HST of 13%, the total will be over CDN$730.00

    I cam back from my Telus Store, couldn't give me a date, but said that there's a shipment in transit which will be there Wednesday. He said it was conceivable they'd be available then.

    Thanks Unbrick date means the device is supported from that date? Would that indicate wide or reasonably wide availability from the 24th? The Telus guy I spoke to said that there was a week of exclusivity that Telus had - which pleases me if true

    Personally, I'm buying on contract anyway, so I'm not quite as sensitive to that price.

    I'm not crazy about that Canadian pricing, agreed, but I think we also know that even at $700-750, there will be a lot of Canadians buying the Passport. That doesn't keep me from being pleased that they went with something more affordable in the US.

    ETA: I just went on Bell's site to check out their pricing, and they have the Q10 currently listed at $699.95 off contract. I doubt they sell many at that price.

    Bell is ridiculously priced anyway. They had the Z30 at 750 even when Telus and Rogers had it at 599.

    I paid 599 for my Z30, and don't want to pay more than 649 for the Passport.

    I'll have to pay tax, unlocking fees and potentially shipping fees on top of that, so not acceptable.

    If Telus has a one week exclusivity deal, I'll buy it from some US reseller. Even with exchange rate, shipping and price gouging. It will still be less than 750
