OP, have you tried this yourself (or anyone else)? What provider are you with?

Being with Koodo, and with a plan I thought was great, I might be interested, but I don't really want to have a Ontario #, I live in Montreal. And from what I hear, Koodo has little to no retention

You would end up with an Ontario number. Which is fine from your end, since you would have unlimited Canada wide calling, so no LD charges. But anyone at home in Montreal that calls you would pay LD. You could port your montreal number to FreePhoneLine or something like that and then forward that number to your Ontario Telus number and you would be covered. The only caveat then would be when you call people, they would see your ON number.

For most people, how?

1. how do they get a Thunder Bay address?
2. how do they "live" in Thunder Bay but is using different area code such as 416?

Step 1: Go to a Virgin Mobile store.

Step 2: Ask for a month to month plan and a SIM card with a thunder bay number (use current address).

Step 3: Register your online account and change address to Thunder Bay.

Step 4: Ask customer service to switch your plan to the new $50 one (ask about the 10% discount for bringing your own phone).

Step 5: Port your number to the new plan.

Step 6: Change address back (Not really important if you are on e-bill).

Note: There are a couple of college/university residences in Thunder Bay (good options for an address).
Your TBay address will be 'virtual', some are saying to use a university residence address, but really any TBay address is fine. Since you have online billing, the address doesn't actually matter to you, only to them when activating the plan. If you want, after you have the plan and ported your other number onto it, then you just go online and change the address back.

Should be good times if/when the carriers catch these people for fraud. Never saw people so eager to join Big 3. :D

I don't think the carriers want to shine a light on one side misrepresenting themselves. It's not like their reps don't bend the truth/lie occasionally. That and they would be turning away customers on lucrative plans.
