Just like the title says.  

MagicJack will let me reserve a vanity number, but I want to use it with a Koodo plan (I do not want to just use it with the mJ app or have it forwarded to my phone for reasons).  Will there be any problem establishing the number with MagicJack and then porting it to Koodo? Or does Koodo have the ability to reserve vanity numbers?

hi David,
I believe you could transfer the number from Magicjack to Koodo (I assumed it is a Canadian number). However from this, you might have to pay a fee to magicjack: http://wp.magicjack.com/account-management/how-can-i-transfer-my-magicjack-number-to-another-provide...

I would suggest you contact Magicjack to ask, they need to allow you to port the number out first.

You are unable to reserve a vanity number with Koodo
