Receiving your replacement device

The replacement device will typically reach you within 24 hours of your request. It may take longer in certain remote locations of Canada.

What if I have an embedded SIM (eSIM) phone?

You will be provided with a new TELUS eSIM voucher along with the replacement device.

If your phone’s eSIM line is active on TELUS, you will need to download the new eSIM card on the phone and transfer the line from the old eSIM to the new eSIM using self-serve or by calling into TELUS.

Note: TELUS and its subsidiaries (“TELUS”) are not responsible for loss of carrier service as a result of an eSIM download wipe performed on any non-TELUS eSIM. If your phone’s eSIM line is currently active through a carrier other than TELUS, you are responsible for obtaining and downloading a new eSIM card from the carrier. You are responsible for any charges that your carrier may apply for a replacement eSIM card.
