To answer my own question, I used the account number.
Once I hit Submit, got the spinning wheel for a while then nothing. No confirmation or error message and the Submit button was greyed out. Turns out the port went through after I decided to test by texting/calling another phone. Didn’t get a text from PM that the port was completed either. Just FYI for others.
Make sure you can receive calls and texts on your newly ported line that is usually where a hung up port will show itself

What’s the limit on the $25 referral?

Can I refer 5 people and get $25 x 5, and they each get $25 (to March 18) ?

How often do they offer the $25 credit for referrals? I am topping up a line to keep it going until the next time.
No one can say for sure when/if it will be back. This promotion has occured a few times in the past.

I think every 2 - 3 months.
I went through three $25 referral promos ended on 13 Sept 2018, 1 Jan 2019 and 18 Mar 2019.

Thank you! up and running now.
I'll try porting my number in later
Also regarding the PIN, mine did not start with a 0 and I also got a text with a different PIN. I was trying to see where I could change it online (since I'll never remember the one they provided) but couldnt see anything.
During the activation process, it should ask you to choose a new PIN. You should get 2 text messages, one with the preset PIN, then one with your chosen PIN.

So best to activate a line before porting, correct?

So it will generate a new phone number, and then can port over existing # ? Is there any time limit on when I have to port over old #?

You get to pick the area code your phone number is in.
No time limit for porting. You can't change your number more than once every 30 days though, but this won't apply to your case.
Give the service a good test first.

Yes, it is safer to get a PM number first to test the service until you are happy with the service before porting your number. I
There is no time limit to port your old # over to PM.

Last Q’s... I read the referral credits take 72 hours or so to show up.... can I activate a SIM and wait for the referral credit to show up before picking a plan... therefore getting the first month free (on the $25 plan)?

Or do I need to pay for the first month upon Sim activation?

You have to pay for the first month when activating.

Usually the referral credit takes about 24 hours to show up, up to 72 hours. You will need to pay for SIM card and 1st month (+ taxes)
