I am moving from BC to Ontario on August 8th, but I want to get a new phone with a Medium Tab (and the $39 deal) before I leave. If I go to a Koodo store in BC, will they be able to set me up with a local number for the place I'll be living in Ontario, or will I get a BC number and then have to call in to change it?

I don't think they'll be able to give you a # for a different Province, unfortunately. I once tried to with Bell but I would have had to jump through way too many hoops.

You can try, but payment and credit anf ID check issues will make it very challenging unless you already have your Ontario address and your credit card is for that address as well as your ID
Thanks for the replies. I went yesterday and was set up with an Ontario number just fine, with only a little bit of hoop-jumping.
