how do I change my area code without changing my number


I have a nexus 4, and I moved from Belleville so a (613) area code to Oshawa a (905) area code. I want to keep my phone number the same but just change my area code. Is that possible?

Unfortunately, that's not possible The first three (after the area code) digits indicate your town so whatever town your new number is in will be the new first three digits

Hi Catherine, You could call Koodo (*611) to can ask if your particular number - last 4 digits - is still available for the Oshawa area but chances are very, very slim... still, won't hurt to ask 🙂

Telus/Koodo prefixes in Belleville: 343-263 613-438 613-827 613-885 Telus/Koodo prefixes in Oshawa: 289-675 289-685 289-688 905-259 905-809 905-926 Keeping the 7 digits after the area code will not be possible. As Sophia mentions, you might try asking Koodo if you can keep your last 4 digits.
