I went online to try an buy a SIM, and found out I need to complete the entire account creation and order process just to get a SIM card.
My plan at PM doesn’t expire until March 15th so I wanted to wait until March 14th before switching. I wanted to order the SIM online and have it delivered so I was ready to go, and I would have NO interruption in service.
I will also be porting my number from PM to Koodo.
I find it difficult to get to a Koodo Kiosk, and frankly would prefer to do it online.
I was reading somewhere that I can still go ahead and create my account and order the SIM, and that my billing wouldn’t start until I ACTIVATE the SIM.
Is this true?
Also should I ask for a new phone number first, and then port my PM number over after I activate?? Or do the porting process at the same time as creating the account.
The goal would be to have as little interruption to my phone service as possible. Obviously I will not cancel the PM account until the porting is done.
So I guess what I am asking is can someone explain the process to me. (Or confirm what I think is correct below as being true or not)
1) I go online, enter my promo code, create an account, select order SIM, give all my info, pick my plan, pay my $15. I am assuming I should ask for a NEW phone number at this stage???
2) I get the SIM in the mail within a week, a day or two before my PM account expires on March 15th, I activate my SIM and my Koodo account.
3) I go online to port my PM number to my new Koodo account which can be done in less than 1hr.
Will the above method work? Or am I missing something? Koodo is asking for my current PM number as a verification PIN, does this mean they will automatically Port the number and close the account immediately? Leaving me without service until the SIM arrives in the mail?
Any help appreciated, especially a reply from someone who has completed the process, or who knows how it will work.
