Damn, I finally got a quebec number put onto one of my new lines, BUT now I don't have the option of changing the plan until December 29th. GAAAAHHH

I just want to make sure this is correct -

If I change my number, I cannot change the plan until the next bill? or is this some sort of glitch?

If your willing to keep the QC number, pretty much you can go with any carrier.

Least they will do is switch you to an Ontario plan (hardly doubt it).
Thanks. Another question. I changed the number to a QC number and switched to a QC plan a few days ago, but now when I go to port in my number, I get a message saying number changes can only be done every 90 days. What can I do now? The billing cycle ends on December 24.

Is the Koodo 1GB student bonus still around? If so, what is the best way to add it without triggering ON account being flagged on QC plan?

Had this happened to my wife QC plan as well. Don't sweat it, just wait for a couple of days and try again. It will happen sooner or later!

I could port my new toronto koodo number to a saskatoon number. now they are not letting me change the plan saying plan can be changed only once in a billing cycle. so i change plan in the next billing cycle, and then port my toronto number back in the billing cycle after that? So that's a ~5 weeks process!

Maybe I'm blind, but where in Self Serve do you change to Quebec?
They changed up the interface since the last time.

/edit: in the manage phone number it says I have to call in to change province.

SK number is not a good idea. Even into the next billing cycle, self-serve will never allow you to pick the 5GB plan for $48. You'll have to call in and somehow prove residency in SK. QC is less of a hassle.

You likely can't. Port a QC # in.

Go to any of the big three website, compare cellphone plans to when you switch province to QC.

Currently the deal is $49 BYOD for talk/text/6GB data.
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
