If the old number became available, I'd like to use it on a new line.

It will sit in limbo for about three months, and then be placed in a pool of numbers to be issued to another customer.

If you want to keep the number, you will need to port it to another provider (including Koodo prepaid) as discussed in the other thread you started.

And if you port the number, you lose the plan that number was on
