Bell / Telus EPP SK plan with AB phone number

Quick question, as I was able to do this for both Bell and Telus...

1- I got an EPP code and website link from my employer with a username and password

2- I went on the website Bell Business eOrdering portal and logged in with the EPP info provided to me (For Telus, I logged into the provided link)

3- During the sign-up process, I have been able to select an LTE sim card only for BYOD

4- I was able to select usage city as Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

5- There is also a step to request number port, and I entered my Alberta phone number on that screen

6- Final step asks for address, and I put my AB address

7- It allowed all the above, while choosing an SK plan with 15gb data

8- The last and final step is to click on the "Buy" button, and it says that it takes 3 business days to receive the SIM.

So, in summary, will this work, or will it be stopped by Bell / Telus, even though their site is allowing it, because of my AB number or billing address? Thanks!

Bell will definitely force a rate plan change once the AB # is ported in. Telus, OTOH, will likely allow it to work.
Motorola phone. Linux on 2xcomputers. Brew beer & wine @home.
Home service reseller internet + FPL + antenna with streaming on smart TV
Wireless 1 line w/ Virgin on QC plan, few lines w/ Koodo to get phones, couple FreedomPop SIM's for roaming

Would it be a good idea to sign up with Telus first, and THEN port the number after? Or is that not possible anymore?

Haven't tried it myself on Telus. Not sure at what point you'd port in the AB #. @zaidyboy would likely know.
