Wanted to cancel out a Koodo line, so did a port-in on a Bell prepaid SIM. I was getting " loading" for a long time on Chrome and Firefox browsers , so used Explorer and was able to do the back and forth steps to add the $5 plan with "manual top-up" and "pay-later" option. I am assuming that if I do nothing, eventually the ported in number will become deactivated? Any experience on this ?

so you only pay 5$ without an addition 5$ activation fees? In total it is 5$ + sim?

You can simply port out and pick "pay later" or don't pick a plan. All it cost is the sim card itself. Once you have the sim card number you should not need to enter any credit card information whatsoever. No additional fee is necessary for a successful porting out.

Also the link should be https://mybell.bell.ca/PrepaidActivationLogin or if that doesn't work, go here https://support.bell.ca/Mobility/Smartp ... y_SIM_card and click on "For a prepaid plan, complete the activation online." you do need to sign up for an account once you are there.
