Wireless Home Phone: Where do I give the number I want to port in?

During the initial sign up I had to give my full name, phone number, and email address. Is that phone number the one that can be ported or do I give the number after I receive the package?

The reason I'm asking is during the sign up I want to give my cell phone number, which I don't want to port in (I'm assuming this is the contact number?). I want to port in my landline.

I think you would need to port in the number afterwards when the account has been created.

So it's not the number I give during signing up that has to necessarily be ported.

Correct. You can port later.

FYI, when you submit the port request, you will be asked for an alternate contact number. This number is how koodo will try to contact you if there is a problem with porting. It should NOT be the same number you are porting. That may seem obvious, but it happens often enough that it needs saying.
