I currently have two cell phones with Bell I want to port the numbers over to Koodo. The issue is the phones I want to get at Koodo one is "In Store Only" (Galaxy S6) and the other is "Online Only" (Nexus 6P). I want to port my numbers over at the same time and have both phones on the same Koodo account. Is this possible?

Its doable.  If the price for the phone is the same, I would just get the Nexus 6P from Bell (nexus phones are unlocked anyways).

Then go to Koodo to port your numbers over.  One account you can get the phone on Tab (if you want) and the other pone you can bring the Nexus 6P over.

If you want to get the refer a friend bill credit you may need to port 1 over. Set up refer a friend and send to your self.  Then switch over the second account

I'd like to put the Nexus 6P on tab too if possible. If I order it online with the tab plan is there a way to port a number over when I get it? 

Or when they send it to me by mail would it already have a number assigned to it?

When you activate you can port your number over.  or you can set up a new number and change your number by porting over at a later time (this is my prefered option as too many steps in one go may result in higher chances of issues that are harder to resolve)/

I would order the Online phone first and get the S6 in store once the Nexus is in hand if you want to do both in one go

So just so I understand I could order the phone online and select a plan. When it arrives in the mail I can activate it on my own (?) and get a new number temporarily.

Then I could go into store with the Nexus and buy the Samsung S6 and port my numbers over from Bell onto the S6 and the Nexus which already has a temporary number?

Yes you will have to call in to activate it.

You can get a new number and it can be change on self serve at a later time on your own (no need to go to the store to do it, and they may not do it for you anyways).
