I'm currently with bell but my contract is up this Friday the 18th. I'd like to switch over to Koodo, but I'm not sure if it would be better to go a day or 2 before my bell contract is up, or on the actual day it expires. Anyone know? Also when I go to Koodo to get my number ported over, can I get a new phone with them right away or will I for some reason have to use my current phone from bell?
Thanks

Well you should only have to pay back what's left on the phone you got from Bell. May as well wait I guess until the day of to port over but iirc when I last ported during the last month of a contract I didn't get charged extra but it can depend. You'll if course get a final bill. You can get a phone from Koodo to use immediately if you so desire or you can use your bell phone still if you unlock it. It's up to you.

Also you should get some one to refer you before you initiate the port so the both of you get 50 bucks each.

Glad to be of help. Just make sure you get referred first and follow the steps for you and the referrer.

Goran's right Becky! Now and until March 5th, you can get $50 if a friend invites you and you'll be happy to know that you can get up to $300 in bill credits (per calendar year) by inviting friends. Make sure you follow the rules http://koo.do/1FDbgqx of the programbefore the activation and your referrals will be approved :)
