You need to keep your virgin number active so don't cancel your virgin service. Porting out will automatically cancel the virgin line.


When you sign up you'll have the option to port your number in. You may need your virgin account number and virgin pin if there is one.

It could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Depends in the handshaking between Koodo and Virgin really. During the transfer your old and new phones may still both ring or receive text messages. In all it shouldn't be more than 24hrs but you'll never be without services of some type during that time.

Porting cancels your line.
