Want to change my ph #, but would really like to get a 416 area code number.

Is this possible?

Can you ask for one?

You can always ask but it is very very improbable that you will be able to be assigned a 416 number..

Koodo numbers are pre-assigned and are not selectable. You can always port your 416 number if you have one with another carrier.

You can always try to see if any are available. They come and go into the pool but don't last long. If nothing pops up in self-serve you'll have to try with a Rep. I'm quite rusty on the matter if they can specifically get one that's available for a fee or what tho.

When you are in Self serve you have to go to change your number and choose from the list provided.  If you dont see the option for the area code you will need to try again to see a new list of numbers.

But note that the 416 area code is extremely popular and with the exploding cellphone market the number is difficult to get and may not be available at all.
