Oh I see... sadly, you can only have one number on one line. If you want to keep your Alberta number, you would have to open a second line for your Sk number. As for the plan, I could be wrong but I believe that is based on where you live, not on your actual number

I'll explain you my case again let suppose my Alberta number is" A" with alberta plan and my Saskatchewan number is "S" with Saskatchewan plan. I want to port my alberta "A" number over "S" and I like to keep my Saskatchewan plan and I no longer need my Alberta plan I just want to keep my Alberta number with Saskatchewan plan and I live in Saskatchewan reason to keep my Alberta number is that everyone has my Alberta number and Alberta plan cost me lots

What you want is not officially supported by Koodo, Emran... so I'm afraid I can't really help you with that. I hope you find what you are looking for :)

Port your Alberta number to a VoIP supplier, and have it call forwarded to your Saskatchewan phone number. Should cost you a couple of bucks a month.

Search VoIP on this forum for more ideas on this track..

Most VoIP services can supply you with numerous DID numbers (virtual numbers in area codes of your choosing) that are all forwarded to one main number.

Within a half hour's drive, I can cross one US and four Canadian area codes. The DID numbers are a blessing if you place any classified ads or have regular contacts within those areas, since many folks will balk at calling you long distance. I can also use VoIP from my cell anywhere there is a wifi connection by using a third party app.

Since you live in SK, there is no question you are eligible for SK plan with SK area code.
