Chad I think he means cell reception isn't working.

You need to have reception to forward the number unless I'm mistaken

Koodo cannot forward your number to Magic jack becuase Koodo doesn't own Magic jack. Magic jack is a third party app that koodo doesn't control. Just a heads up Magic jack works over a internet connection only so you must have internet to send and recieve calls, also must Magic jack numbers are Florida so if your in canada your friends and family will get charged long distance. The only way to make people call you over Magic jack would be to tell all of your contacts your new magic jack number and make sure they no longer call you on your regular cell phone.

In any event you can't call forward to American numbers anyway.

If you have call forwarding on your plan and you have a magic jack phone and number then yes you can call forward to it.
As long as you have call forwarding you can forward to any number yhou wish.

If you want to call forward (to a Canadian number) without an active phone you can call Koodo at 1-866-995-6636 (choose option 6 for tech) to activate call forwarding in their network. You should also add the $3 unlimited call forwarding add-on while your at it to avoid paying by the minute for all the calls that are forwarded.

Also, your forwarded calls count toward your minutes, so watch for that.

I'm not sure, but I think that once you have an active phone you can disable the call forwarding in the network yourself by dialling *31# from the new cell, if that doesn't work you'll have to call tech support again.

I didn't know Koodo could do this. Good to know.

You'd be surprised (or terrified) to know what we can do.

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

(don't worry, doing anything would leave a paper trail, not that we would abuse this power if it didn't)
