If you see an error "Mobile Number entered is invalid. Please check and try again." after changing your number, log out of self-serve and log back in. It should update the number.

Nice, I got this plan last time it was around. As an added bonus, Koodo has a $25 referral bonus for new activations. You need a referral from a current koodo member before you go through the activation process, otherwise you will not receive the credit.

The loophole is fairly straight forward:

Go to your local Best Buy/Walmart/WOW Mobile and request a QC number. You will be able to hop on the QC plan right away, and simply need to port your existing number via self-serve when you get home.

If they refuse...

1) Register for a monthly (post-paid) plan with an in-province number.
2) Go home, register for Koodo self-serve online.
3) Request/change to QC number via self-serve.
4) On the first day of your billing cycle, the system will allow you to select desired QC plan. *Some people may be able to do this instantly once changing to a QC number.
5) Afterwards, port your existing in-province number from the other carrier via self-serve. *It may say you need to wait 90 days, but will work once the billing cycle renews in a few days.

Fairly straight forward. Good luck!

I posted this summary in an earlier thread, here it is again!

For Ontario residents, here's a quick how-to I put together for my friends from the boxing day 8gb QC deal (based on info from this forum and HoFo):

1. In-person, go sign up for a new Ontario monthly plan and new phone number from Koodo from a kiosk, Best Buy, Walmart wherever. It doesn't particularly matter what plan. Don't bring your old number over yet.

Go ahead and get a new phone too if you want, or you can use your old phone (but only if it's unlocked* or from Telus). With the last deal, I think you had to start with a tab-large to be able to easily switch to the QC plan.

If they can give you the QC plan directly then you're done (e.g. if you do business in QC for example - FYI do not give a fake Quebec address, we're doing this legit). Otherwise,

2. Go home, and use a referral to create an online account. You and the referrer can both get a 50$ credit with the current promotion.

3. Create your online self-service account and check your billing cycle starting date, write it down, it's usually in 6-10 days.

4. In self-service online, go ahead and change your new ON phone # to a QC # before your next billing date. You now have a QC phone number for a week, congrats!

5. After that first billing date (again, wait usually 6-10 days), change the plan to the $54 QC plan. If there's any free data bonuses or addons you want like visual voicemail (+2$) go ahead and add those too.

6. Wait 24 hrs. Go back to self-service online and port in your existing/old Ontario phone #. You will need your old phone number and your old account number to do so. This will automatically cancel your old plan wherever you come from (e.g. Rogers for me). And you will get a bill from your old plan pro-rated to the date you switched. It usually takes about 15 minutes to switch over. FYI: do NOT call Rogers or whatever to cancel your old plan first, you will lose your number if you cancel before you port!

And we're back, you now have your old number, on a new great plan.

If you're already on Koodo, there's a process of porting out and porting in that's doable, but not my expertise, check out the last post or HoFo for details.

*If you're bringing your old phone, call your company before you start this to get it unlocked. An iPhone unlock is 50$ with Rogers, most Android phones are much cheaper, but don't forget to negotiate to get it unlocked free or discounted.

Went from Rogers to koodo on a similar deal and never looked back. Koodo is great and has same coverage as telus/bell for anyone who's unsure about switching. :)

Sigh, we shouldn't have to go through that length to get a freaking phone plan that isn't downright douchey. If people in the states now can get $60 unlimited talk/text/data that includes a subsidized phone, then there is no reason for us over here in ONTARIO not to get something similar.
