You'll have to open an account with Koodo and get assigned a temporary #. Once this is done you'd have to call in to customer service and provide the account # of your old provider along with the Tn #. Generally the port process takes 2-3 hours from cell phone to cell phone.

I'm pretty sure you can, David... you can have a number anywhere you like. However I would imagine you might need to provide a Sask address matching your credit card. There has been a lot of fraud unfortunately of people faking a Sask address just to get their awesome $55 plan, not sure if Koodo is planning on doing something about it but they might want some proof that you are actually there.

They won't be eligible for the $55 price plan because the # is based out of Alberta.They would have to change the # to a Sask # to be eligible for that provincial promo plan.

If he already has the sask plan before the number change would the system notice?

Off chance if he had a sask plan prior, if an address change or telephone # change is done on the account outside of Sask or MAN the system will catch it. Because clients have to have a Sask/Manitoba address and # to be eligible for provincials plans.

Except when you port the number in, Rocky, as a Google search will quickly reveal 😞

In order to be able to get the Manitoba/Saskatchewan rate plan, you must have a number with the following area codes. 204, 431, 306 & 639.

@Sophia again if the address or # is not Sask/Manitoba # they won't be eligible.

Rocky, customer opens account in sask with a sask address. Then ports in the Alberta number.

Ah, you tell that to the hundreds and hundreds who ported in their number and are happily using it with their own address and their own province number... just search for "Koodo Saskatchewan plan" and it'll probably pop up on top of your list. (@Rocky)

If you are currently on the rate plan and change your number to something else that is not the above area codes, then the customer is no longer eligible for the rate plan. Porting a number in from another province does not change this. It will be up to the agent to catch it however.

Purchase a phone, yes. If you are moving to SK, it maybe worthwhile switching numbers afterwards.
