How to purchase
Any TELUS customer can purchase Device Care at a TELUS Store either when activating or renewing a wireless device or within 60 days of activating or renewing.
How to cancel
Monthly TELUS Device Care customers can cancel the feature whenever they want, either by having a sales representative cancelling it in-store or by calling TELUS Customer Care.
Device Care only covers the original device and subscriber at the time of purchase and cannot be transferred between devices or subscribers.
Filing a service request
To file a service request a customer can, within 60 days of the incident occurring, either:
- Call Asurion at 1-866-281-4537
- Submit online at phoneclaim.com/telus
You will need the following information when filing a service request:
- Phone number of the mobile device
- IMEI number
- Postal code
- Device manufacturer and model (i.e. Samsung S6, Blackberry PRIV)
- A credit card to pay the service replacement fee
Note: If your phone is lost or stolen, call TELUS immediately to suspend service and prevent unauthorized usage.
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.
