No. If it's a new account you'll need to activate the phone once received in order to be assigned a number. If you already have an account, you keep the number you have.

Does this answer still apply if the phone is purchased online on a medium tab? My friend is looking to port a number from Bell, but lives 4 hours from a Koodo kiosk. He wants to take advantage of the promo priced iPhone SE, and the bonus data plans!

Can you port a phone number from previous provider online?

Yes. The amount with the previous provider must still be active in order to do so though.
