I need to suspend my phone plans for me and my wife for 5 months or so...I don't like paying $15 a month each = 30 ... so if they cannot do better than that I will terminate and start clean when I return ( no contract)
You may want to port your numbers out to a voip provider like voip.ms so you can keep your numbers at least. Voip.ms fees per month can be as low as 85 cents to keep your line open. There is a minimum deposit of 25 USD but that's a small price to pay to keep your numbers.
When you're ready to come back to Koodo, you can just port your number back in OR simply setup your voip.ms account to forward to your new number. By doing this. You'll never have to worry about changing your number each time you travel.
