Going on vacation tomorrow to Quebec - I live in Prince Edward Island. Can I go to the store in Quebec and purchase a phone and go on line and activate it for my existing number or must I purchase the phone only in my own province and online?

You can visit any Koodo location and purchase a device sure.
Thanks very much! It seems in Charlottetown you can only buy cell phones on the large tab and were interested in buying it out right or the small tab

Why do you think it will be cheaper in Quebec?

The Pixel 2 should be available on any type of Tab size tho.  (It's depends on your plan).    Did some one told you that you can get it only on Tab L?

You will get some upfront saving on Tab Large, but it's not worth to change your plan to one of Tab L plan.

Also keep in mind that the larger storage size the 128gb and the 64gb in white or blue are only available online so if you wanted one of those you will need to purchase it online as they don't have them at physical locations, only the 64gb black model is available in store

If you get the phone, you just need to put the old sim in the new phone (if they are the same sim card size).  If they are not, then the kiosk can move your number to the new sim
I don’t think it will be cheaper. Just a lot of places in Charlottetown do not sell anything unless you choose a large tab which comes with a more expensive plan and we currently have an awesome plan so I want to buy outright or on a small tab. Would like blue and that seems primarily online and thought a bigger city like Montreal or Quebec might have a bigger selection is all

No its unfortunately online only for the blue. You could always get a black model and put a DBrand Skin on it to change the color if your not going to put a case on it whivh will cover the color anyways.
Check out DBrand.Com out of Toronto Ontario they're a awesome company that sells the best quality skins
