Hello everyone. I’m in a strange situation that I would like some clarity on.
I used to live in Quebec. When I got a new phone/Koodo plan a few years ago, I went with: Tab Lrg $46 5GB UL min QC SFD ($46.00). At that time, I transferred from Telus to Koodo and transferred my Ontario phone # over with me. (I wanted to keep my old number as I was only in Quebec temporarily.)
Therefore, during my time in Quebec, I had a Quebec plan (with a Quebec billing address on my account) and an Ontario phone #; I never ran into any issues having an Ontario phone # with a Quebec plan.
Recently, I moved to British Columbia (BC). However, I hesitated to update my billing address because I had thought it would prompt me to change my Quebec plan to a BC plan. (As far as I can tell, there is no $46 5GB plan in BC as there is in Quebec). Also, I pay my bill through my chequing account (and not my credit card)… which means my billing address serves no functional purposes. (As far as I know, Koodo is not sending anything in the physical paper-mail to me anyway).
So yes, I’ve continued along with my Quebec plan, and my Ontario phone #, while living in BC.
It sounds like I shouldn’t touch anything… right? My guess is that if I were to change my billing address to BC, it would force a chain-of-events that would prompt me to lose my Quebec plan AND (perhaps?) make me lose my Ontario #? I don’t know.
So… why am I really saying any of this?
I recently received a Koodo offer, via text, where I can take advantage of ‘Bright Friday’ deals to add a friend/family member to my account. I’ll get $5 off, per month, for 24 months, and the friend/family member will get 3GB of additional data.
Simply: I want to do this for my partner - who is with another carrier; she would be BYOD. However, if I click ‘Add another line, BYOD’ - the only address they’ll ship the new SimCard to is my billing address, which is presently my old Quebec address.
Coming full circle: It seems like the only way to take advantage of this offer - for my partner (adding her, as a new line, BYOD) - would be to risk me losing both my own Quebec plan AND my Ontario number. Is there anyone who could corroborate/clarify these assumptions of mine?
