Cellular Phones þ Buy, lease, or rent the phone by the month. þ There is a wide variety of service packages including paying a fee per month and/or a charge per minute of use. There are a wide array of companies to choose from for purchasing telephones and a growing list of companies that offer cellular service. For further information look in the Yellow Pages phone book under ‘Cellular Telephones’. Consideration þ If you lease, you may be unable to discontinue the contract until the lease has expired. þ All calling time is accounted and each service provider offers different price packages. For example, one company may charge you a higher rate for calls during the day on weekdays while on weekends and evenings a certain amount of calling time is paid for by your monthly fee. This fee does not cover long distance calls. þ Long distance fees can be more expensive than on landlines. Landline Phones þ Buy or rent a telephone from Telus. You are required to provide a major credit card, or $200 cash, if this is your first application to Telus. For more information phone Telus at 1-888-811- 2323 (toll free) or access their web site at þ Pay an installation fee to activate the telephone line and set up a telephone number that is unique for you. þ Pay a monthly fee for the service. þ ‘ Local’ phone calls are included in this fee (you will not pay extra to make a local call). þ ‘Local’ phone calls are those calls made to areas which are considered close to where you are calling from. At the front of your White Pages telephone book (described on the next page) is a section describing ‘Local Calling’ and lists all of the areas to which you are able to call without having to pay extra fees. þ Fees for long distance calls are calculated by the minute; rates vary according to your delivery company, and are dependent upon where you are calling, the day, and time of day. þ Contact Telus, Bell, Sprint, AT&T or other competitors for rate information. Each will provide different long distance rate packages. Assess each to determine which one will best serve your needs for the best price. Service Changes If you need to discontinue your service, or if you move, contact the telephone company and they will disconnect the line. At this time, you can request that your account be transferred to your new residence. K If you are moving within the city, request that you be able to keep your telephone number. This is often possible, at no extra charge. To call long distance by landline or cell phone Within British Columbia, Canada or the USA þ Dial "1", then the three digit area code, and then the telephone number

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
