Default Telus and the 8703e

Please Login to Remove!

My Telus rep told me yesterday that they expect the 8703e to arrive sometime in November. Why they are so far behind Bell I don't know, but it's coming soon.

Well thank you for that find. That is the first concrete evidence that things may finally be happening for us Telus customers.

I have also heard that some time in November, we here in Canada are going to have the option of keeping our Cell numbers forever, regardless of the Carrier we are with...in other words, we will soon be able to transfer our numbers to whatever Carrier we want.

Would any know if this software update would work on a 8703e unit from Verizon?

Still nothing on their website, but that is the news I've been waiting for. Thank you so much for posting that link...I will be monitoring it each day, and on Monday I am going right down to our Telus Store and ordering mine.

Yes it will but the sprint version is the newest. All bb software works on like models providing you delete the vendor.xml file prior to installing
