Best Buy in Ancaster wouldn’t give me a QC number. Dude started the process, and I told him I was fine with an Ontario plan, but just needed the QC number. Midway through the setup, he had to ask his manager something, and manager said without a Quebec ID, they wouldn’t give me a QC number.titaniumtux wrote: ↑Oct 18th, 2017 3:14 pmBestBuy will activate a QC number for you.
But since you're going BYOD, it doesn't really matter. Since you can:
Lolz at anyone who downvotes this post.
- Activate with a local number at any dealer. Go on cheapest plan unless there's a promo you want on a bigger plan (overseas calling allowance, bonus data allowance) in order for it to carry over to the equivalent QC plan
- Hop online (doesn't have to be at home, can even be in the dealer store using their wifi), switch to a QC number
- Change the plan right away (max once per billing cycle, can be done before your first bill)
- Port in your GTA number after the fact and keep the QC plan
I’ll have to try a different mobile place I guess, but I was quite discouraged, as this thread led me to believe that Best Buy was a slam dunk.
