I intend to change to Koodo prepaid plan from Fido. I need a new SIM card to use high speed network.

How can I keep my old number with the new SIM card?

Thanks.

Yes. Just register for koodo prepaid and do not cancel your fido.


Once you are registered and things are working, then go into your self serve and port your fido number over.


You could port your number over while registering, but I feel it's safer to do it once your up and running. But I'm just super safe and cautious

Do you mean that
first, buy a koodo SIM card and activate it,
and then port my Fido number over?

Do you know how long it could take to switch the number?

Thanks for the quick reply.

Usually right away. But can take up to 24 hours. If it doesn't work at that point I would call Koodo to see what's going on
