I think you can transfer the number and phone to your name. However, you might have to pay the tab of the phone (if that one has) and previous balance on that number before doing so.

On the other hand, if you can deal with a fresh start with a new number, you can just open a new account with Koodo and let your ex deal with old number.

You can make the change, but your ex will have to agree and they might make you pay the bill. The tab will transfer out with the transfer of ownership. Hopefully a rep can chime in about the actual bill..
