Transfer of ownership/responsibility

I know the process of transferring the account ownership to other person. But I'm wondering is there any minimum time limit that the account or line should be active?

E.g. With Bell mobility, if the mobile account is 6 months older, user can add another line on the account, and transfer that line right away to the new party.

But with Telus/Fido, the line itself should be active for at least 90 days before transferring the ownership regardless how old is the account itself.

I want to buy a phone for my gf as gift and wondering how soon she can take it over? What if I add the line to an existing Koodo account?

Must be also in good standing before it can be transferred to someone else.

True, although unlike an unlock request, the TOWN can still be completed as long as any remaining balance is paid off before the transfer is completed.

- What if I add the line to an existing Koodo account?

If you purchase the 2nd phone and activate it under your account you’ll be able to enjoy unlimited calling between you and your gf.
You’ll receive one bill but it will show you a breakdown of usage for each phone/line.
:D
