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.
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.

Have you tried this? The reason bell seems cleaner is because it is not through a third party, but is directly on eordering.bell.ca. If it was a third party, I would assume the system wouldn't be as robust, but Bell's actual website allowing this seems odd. Any thoughts?

Never tried, but been with Virgin for years. I know insiders at Bell Mobility. Used to work back in the day, but that has changed a long way back.
