I'm moving to BC from Ontario. I already changed my number online because I want a BC number. Do I also have to change my plan or would it be the same because I have the Canada Wide Data Double 35 plan? I also have a tab of $10/month.

You would have to change to a Ontario plan. It should of prompted you to do that after the number change...

moving to BC from Ontario. I have a Canada wide plan. It says nothing about any specific province.

At the top right corner of the page you will see a little black square that says something like EN/ON or FR/QC when you shop for plans without signing in on the main Koodo site. Click on it and check out the plans available for your new home province.

As long as you don't change your phone number to an Ontario one, your current BC plan will stay in place. If you choose a new Ontario number, then you will be billed according to what's available there.

Just keep in mind that your local Ontario friends may be put off if they have to call you long-distance to them from just next door. That can be solved by setting up with a forwarding or VoIP service such as CallCentric where you can get a local Ontario number and very cheap forwarding to your BC number.

Moving TO BC... changed number TO BC number, not Ontario. I checked under the British Columbia section & they have the same plan that I currently have... so I guess there is nothing to worry about.

Hey Courtenie! You're absolutely right. We offer regional plans in Quebec, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, so since you are going from Ontario to BC your plan can certainly remain the same :)
