One of my most enjoyable partnerships over the past 2 years has been with Telus. I like to joke that they are my first long-term relationship. In fact I have been a client longer than I’ve been married to husband. My Telus mobility account has kept me connected through moments big and small for more than 18 years. Yes, 18!
I can still remember the phone that started it all. I had just started my first full-time job and was in the market for a cell phone so that I could keep in contact with my Dad and Step-mom on the long commute to work. Being only 19 I knew nothing about phones, so when a coworker was moving out of country and had to sell her contract and her phone for cheap I jumped on it. That phone went with me everywhere. On buses, on road trips and on every blind date. From that moment on I switched phones every 2-3 years keeping up with technology. In fact even back then I was a bit of at tech stalker and couldn’t wait to get far enough into my plan so that I would be eligible for the next free, or nearly free phone.
A year and a half ago Telus reached out to me and asked if I’d like a front row seat for one of the many special causes that they support and they invited my daughter into their inner circle as well. We Day 2012, was an inspiring event for more than just those children that had earned their way there. My daughter came home energized to do her part to raise pennies for Free The Children, helping raise 300 in her school, and since then has given back in ways big and small to her community. Later in 2012 I followed along as Bonhomme Carnival visited the children’s hospital spreading joy and compassion to both the parents and kids whose temporary home was there. We had fun at Carnaval, enjoyed giving back, and have loved getting to know the people behind the brand. Telus is so much more than just a telecom company.

The latest addition to their cell phone lineup, the Samsung Galaxy S5, has me drooling. I own the Galaxy S4 but can’t wait to upgrade!
The GALAXY S5 is the perfect companion; some of its other notable features include:
- A great camera: The GS5 features a 16MP camera with the world’s fastest auto-focus (0.3 seconds), HDR and selective auto-focus to capture all those special moments.
- Speed: The GS5 features an innovative Wi-Fi technology for boosting data speed, Download Booster, which bonds Wi-Fi and TELUS’ 4G LTE Network simultaneously, allowing consumers to experience what’s trending now at blazing fast speeds. It also features fifth generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi MiMo.
