I just got the deal today for my son and daughter, goes until the end of June, it was the $36 plan. i used a referral code from a guy that got me $25 off. I then referred my wife (for my daughter), and we both got $25 off, so $75 total back. I then paid $150 plus tax on each account to get the Galaxy A5. The J3 Prime is free, the LG Q6 i think was $100. They are going to port both numbers from 7-11 speakout, i also asked them for the unlocked model and not to put the sim in the phone, he said they would tape it to the box. Pretty easy process, took 20 minutes. They will arrive in a couple days. Forgot to mention, it is 3gb LTE data.

AFAIK both the A5 and the Q6 are available for free though Koodo, outright. Just FYI.

Well, it doesn't really matter to me now, I got the LG G4 for my dad when they had that in stock, and it was no extra $$$ needed

but tell me more about the koodo, or do you have a thread link i could read, i need a sim card to use for 2 months when a relative is staying for the summer

Maybe someone can help...

I want to set up MMS on a Samsung S4 phone

For Zoomers I assume I use the Rogers MMS settings or are tere different ones for Zoomers?
I tried the Rogers settings but messages with a picture don't come in.

Do I have to turn the phone off and on to get the settings to activate?
Also under the proxy setting there is an entry for a port number on the phone, but the Rogers settings I found on line show no port for the proxy

Does Zoomer allow you to change the number later through it's web portal or you'll have to call in?

Call in, and just say you were waiting for your old contracted plan to expire and you're porting in that number

Just have a look in the hot deal forum for the Wow mobile and Walmart deals. The give you gift cards. I did see recently that both those phones were effectively free via the deals. You do take a credit hit though and there is some hassle.

Sorry didn't ask the question clearly, not porting, what I'm asking is that after get a new number from Zoomer, if I don't like the number assigned, can I login to some sort of portal and view available number and select one I like?

If you are selling the phone, get the free one is easier to sell. However, if you are using it yourself, the P10 lite is the way to go.

Yes, Zoomer does allow you to change the number but they will charge you and I was told by the Zoomer rep that you cannot pick the number and number is randomly assigned.

What I did was signed up with Koodo because they allow you to pick a number and ported the Koodo number next day. Porting is free.
