I cancelled my Koodo account in mid-july, and was wondering if I reactivated my account with koodo would I be able to get that phone number back.

Hi Anais,

When you cancel your account your old number goes back into the phone number list for people to choose from so you would need to choose a new number unfortunately.

Hope that helps answer your question :)

I can't say that they do this for all the numbers, but they will hold a number for 90 days before they release it again. CSR asked me if I wanted Koodo to hold the number just in case I want to get it back later when I canceled a line. (long time ago)
You can ask them if your old number is still available :)

If your account was closed in mid-July your still within the 90-day window to reactivate, in which case you can reactive with the same plan and number.
