If you look through a couple of these threads here, a member named Kirk was going through a issue with trying to find a sim for his storm to store his contacts on, and it goes into more detail about it. Might have the answer.
Telus did not migrate away from CDMA - its still running full speed. They are still selling onto their CDMA network but have ALWAYS had the policy to only activate phones sourced from Telus.
Telus launched an HSPA network.
Verizon/Telus Tours do not have the HSPA frequencies to work on Telus. They are meant to be used in CDMA mode. Telus does not have a 2G GSM network.
A Verizon Tour cannot be activated on Telus.
