First, I am trying to port my number, but it self-serve says it does not qualify due to this:
The number entered is not eligible for the following reason:
No, this number isn't eligible to move to Koodo Mobile because it is already active on our network. To switch to Koodo Mobile with a new number, please visit our Web Store (link to Webstore) or a Koodo retailer to activate with Koodo Mobile. (RC E8)
Please check your number and try again.
The thing is, this number is currently attached to Bell, and was even previously ported from Rogers many years ago.
Second question, should the Bell SIM still be in the phone and the phone turn on when porting, or does it matter?
