Message pricing for TELUS Business customers

TELUS Business pricing for sending and receiving text, picture and video messages

Sending and receiving messages in Canada to other Canadian phone numbers

Most TELUS Business rate plans already include
unlimited text & picture messaging
, which allow you to send unlimited text, picture and video messages while you are in Canada to other Canadian numbers, whether the recipients are in Canada or international.

For example, if you have a Toronto phone number but you are in Vancouver and your friend has a Quebec phone number but is in Paris, France, it will not cost you to text your friend.

  • Data used by picture & video messaging is not chargeable while you are in Canada

  • If you do not have unlimited messaging, sending and receiving messages will be charged at pay-per-use rates. Messages are charged per message, per image and per video sent to each recipient and are free to receive
