I'm planning to switch for pre-paid koodo plan from fido. I'm planning to port my number. Do I need to buy a koodo simcard before starting the porting process?
Just in case, I have my own unlocked phone(nexus 5).
Also, how long does it usually take to port the number?

Yes you need the sim before hand.

Porting takes usually 15 mins. But it can take up to 24 hours to fully port. Any thing longer than that I would call customer service to check if the port went wrong
