Zoompass For BlackBerry Now On All TELUS Devices

By Bla1ze on 2 Mar 2010 12:32 pm EST

If you are a TELUS BlackBerry user you may have noticed a new application icon on your device. Now, sometimes carriers have a really bad habit of pushing a ton of stuff to our devices. In order to better educate folks about the most recent app to pop up, here is a look at Zoompass.

  • Zoompass is a convenient way to send, receive, and request money, instantly and securely, on your mobile phone.  Plus it’s FREE to register!
  • Zoompass can be used by anyone on the Bell Mobility, Rogers, and TELUS networks as well as customers of their respective affiliates including Fido, PC Mobile, Solo Mobile and Virgin Mobile.
  • Zoompass is operated by EnStream – a joint venture of Canada’s three leading carriers; Bell Mobility, Rogers and TELUS 

Zoompass is not that bad of a service. I can actually see why some folks may be interested in using it. Aside from mobile money transfer you can also use the option to get a prepaid Mastercard to use wherever Mastercard is accepted. This service is similar to the PayPal offering of Mastercards, where money is withdrawn direct from your PayPal account. Only in this case, it's your Zoompass account or bank account directly. Of course, there is fees associated to the service so keep that in mind should you decide to use it.

Zoompass For BlackBerry Now On All TELUS Devices


Rebooted my storm this week-end and the Zoopass icon was there.

Since this is a service book that cannot be deleted I promptly hide this icon from my device.

Instead of pushing stuff to our handsets Telus should focus on making some radio apps (read Corus, Orb, etc) usable by their customers.

It's annoying to see these big corporations not listening to our requests but pushing these junk apps to our devices.

Verizon gets worse icons pushed to their device. pipotube does Corus not work for you? OH! You said Orb doesn't either. I've got the 9700 on the HSPA so both Corus and Orb work for me. It's the CDMA network that blows. Mind you, I sacrificed unlimited data on my Storm to make the switch..

I wanted to make the switch from the storm 1 to the bold 9700 and telus said that they need to cancel my unlimited data plan.

I might wait a bit even if corus, orb and a bunch of cool radio apps doesn't work right now.
