Hi:

Recently I have activated two prepaid accounts. When I select Toronto Ontario as the city/province, the only numbers that are displayed are 437 area code numbers. Where as if you go in store and activate a postpaid plan, you have the option to get a 416 number.

Anyone know why the prepaid activations and even change number options are showing 437 numbers only?

Thanks.

It seems that a 416 number is very popular in Toronto and I guess Koodo saves them for their postpaid customers. Pure speculation on my part but other than that I don't know why they aren't available for prepaid.
