any idea of the pricing?
how about price for the unlocked version?
I have a feeling this is going to be $199 or $299 on a 3-year plan. Most likely $599 or $699 no-term.
Telus does not sell unlocked versions, but you could always get one no-term and unlock it.
I really, really hope this is true.
do they ship to the USA?
I'm pretty sure they don't. You'll have to find a Canadian friend
yeah, that's what i expected
there's always Ebay unless someone can help me out if i decide to get the phone depending on the price
A rep at a TELUS stand was very cryptic about the milestone. When asked he made a contorted face and said "well I saw the motorola rep a few weeks ago, we were supposed to receive them at the end of the month, but they may not be on sale until early march".
So, yeah. More non-answers to our burning question. I'm betting on a mid-february release though.

Soon, my friends, soon
Keep your eyes peeled and report here if you find more details!
From BGR this morning:
"Canadian Android aficionados who wait with baited breath for TELUS to release the Motorola MILESTONE might soon be able to breathe easy if a new rumor has any truth to it. According to the folks over at MobileSyrup, TELUS recently sent out a memo its employees that the MILESTONE will make its debut on February 18th with pre-orders at Best Buy starting as soon as the 5th. Pricing wasn’t mentioned, but it’s looking as if the MILESTONE start at $199 and max out at $549 without contract"
Best Buy DOES take pre-orders today! 50 bucks up-front, in-store only. Should I pre-order it there or wait to get both the phone and a new plan at a telus store?
Any word on locking? Would swapping in a Rogers SIM work?
Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!
