Definitely worth it considering what you're saving over the course of several months +
Not really if Koodo turns the vice a few more turns and starts auditing these plans... What kept me from considering this option is the kijiji professionals turning this into a real job and the numerous people wanting hardware tabs on top. Eventually, there will be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back. BTW, the informed know full well the QC option is live and well.

Does anyone think the small print on the $48 Manitoba plan will come back to bite anyone in the future? In comparing it to the $54 Quebec plan (exact same data/features), it seems like the Quebec plan doesn't actually specify it's for QC residents only, whereas the MB plan says it's for MB only.

Right now I'm on the $54 6GB QC plan, which seems like a great deal compared to Ontario plans. Doesn't seem like it's worth the risk trying to get the $48 plan with just a $6 difference.

Yes not worth the risk
but for QC it does says in the "Nitty Gritty"
#6.Rate plan available for Quebec residents only. Subscribers who move to another province will be migrated to a rate plan available in that province with similar services at the monthly rate plan then available.

That is there in the Nitty Gritty section, you're right, but there's no actual superscript 6 attached anywhere to the $54 plan. Not the BYOD version of it, anyway. If you switch to the Large Tab version of the same plan, then it does say that it's for QC residents only, with the 6 referencing the fine print. I'm not sure why the distinction is there, but as I buy my phones outright I'm hoping it'll never come up.

Do you have their contact information? I'm willing to pay to get this plan.

Latest instructions here: http://www.howardforums.com/showthread. ... -in-Canada

It's really not difficult, you wouldn't have exposure to third person ("kijiji professional" so to speak) and you also save $100.
The loophole is closed. The guy claimed he got someone on Kijiji to do it after they shut down the loophole.

The closed only means you can't see the plan and change it yourself in the self serve, But you can still call in and ask them to switch for you (MB Plan)
QC plan you can change to it yourself In the self serve.

I would make a day of it and drive to Montreal, get the plan, return to Toronto and just port my number over.

Why, when you can get the QC plans from the comforts of your favorite computer chair? The steps are the same as for getting the prairie plans, but get a Quebec number instead. Since we border Quebec, the stores here seem to be more willing to start you off with a Quebec number, thus making the entire process go much faster. Anyway, this is all documented on hofo.

I called to cancel my 2nd line today and I was caught by the cancellation guy, he said to me that I have to change the plan to the Ontario one, for now i switched to $35 with UL talk and text (no data) to keep my number. Will switch to either fido/virgin/public mobile with their BYOD plans.

I had trouble getting a Saskatchewan number from local Koodo kiosks. Had to get a local plan and change number etc. Took two months to complete.

If the kiosks are willing to offer Montreal numbers, this would make it a lot easier.

Ok so I signed up to the 2 gig plan for my wife on the 26th of december. Went online, and switched to a montreal number. I have to wait till Jan 6th to switch to the Quebec 8 gig plan, but now when i click on change phone number it tells me I have to wait 90 days to change the number again - does that mean I can't port her 416 number until march??
