I just turned 18 and wanted to put my phone into my name rather then my dad's. However my dad live's in a different province and is 6 hours away from me. Do I need him present to switch the name on the plan?

Hi there!

You guys do not need to be at the same place, but if you want you can conference the call with your Father and call to make this happen, it is call a Transfer of Ownership.

If not possible on the same call, get your Father to call, authorize you to transfer number and then you can call and complete process, there is a Customer Service fee that applies.

Also very important to mention, this will depend on your credit, there will be a credit check to see eligibility...
