I was wonder how much the activation fee is
Telus has not removed activation fees, they just pretended to. Walk into any Telus store and buy a phone, you will be charged a $30 "account management fee."
This is supposedly for data and phone book transfers, as well as phone set up.
I did not need any of this, as I am capable on my own. That changed nothing, they still charged me the fee.
Enough of these greedy phone companies who make hundreds of millions per quarter in profits by gouging their customers!
A full service account setup fee of $15 applies to all accounts activated by Client Care or by an in-store representative. However, if you activate online, it will be free of charge.
