Hello

I’m in Ontario and I signed up for a new Koodo account, in my name, with the $60/10GB plan with a new number.

My wife also has Koodo post-paid plan. Also her plan has a Tab which I am willing to pay in full.

I would like to port her number to my new account ($60/10GB).

Is it possible to port from a Koodo Post-paid account to another Koodo Post-paid account?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Yes and no... no you can’t port post paid to post paid directly unless accounts have been active for 3 months... so you port it to prepaid the from prepaid to the new account... did you do the refer a friend?? You could have gotten 50$ credit...

Slight correction, you can't port from postpaid to postpaid at all, regardless of how long you've had the account. I believe you're thinking of a transfer of ownership. Porting out and then porting back in should work fine though.

Thanks for your response!

No I did not do the refer and friend.

So just to confirm:

I buy a prepaid sim, open an account with it.

Then port my wife’s number to the prepaid acxountZ

Then port her number into my $60/10gb account

Is this correct? Does porting happen right away?

Thanks

Just make sure to port the number to a Koodo or Telus prepaid for quick turnaround.  Otherwise you may have to wait up to 30 days to port.

Ok just to make sure, my wife’s account is a Quebec plan (through a loophole) with an Ontario number. Will this affect what I’m trying to do any way?

Porting out her number will kill her current plan.

That’s obviously his goal
