Looking to switch from Bell land line to Koodo Home Phone. Located in the rural Renfrew, Ontario area (~ 1 hour west of Ottawa).
Bit nervous about hitting "show stopper" issues with this cut over, and so intend to use in parallel for a month both the Koodo Home Phone with a new assigned Ottawa number (Koodo apparently does not have any local Renfrew area numbers available) and still keep the Bell land line account active - but not used.
If after a month all is good with the Koodo Home Phone, I am then planning on requesting my existing Bell land line # to be transferred by Koodo Support to my Koodo Home Phone to use my existing local Renfrew Bell phone # instead and will discontinue the Bell land line account. I realize I may have to pay a transfer # fee but if there are showstopper issues during the cut over encountered, it is no hassle to just switch back to Bell.
In terms of setup my plan is to use existing house telephone wiring as is, and just disconnect the house phone wiring from the Bell demarcation point and instead plug it into the Koodo Home Phone Hub instead. The house has only 1 phone line connection into the house wire which is used with 3 portable Dect 6.0 V-Tech handsets.
Q1. Does above sound like a good approach? Any other recommend tips or suggestions?
Q2. The Koodo Home Phone comes with Unlimited Canada minutes. My assumption is that this continues even after the $5/month promotion is over at which point I believe it is then $20/month (~ 1/3 cost of Bell land line). Is my understanding correct?
Q3. Has the Koodo Home Phone promotion been extended past Dec 1st? I just checked today (Dec 2nd) and it still appears to be offered.
Thanks in advance,
