What are you trying to do? If you have an existing account with lines in it, just add another line. You can refer your new line using one of your existing lines.

If I have an eligible PM number to change and I want to switch my 40/6gb plan, is the way to go to add a line to my current Koodo account, and one activated I port my current 40/6gb number to the new 40/8gb plan? Just want to get some confirmation that doing all these in the same account is fine.

Fastest way is in store by buying a new sim. They may make you port your pm number though.
You can not use a old sim you previously used.

You can not refer yourself on the same line as far as I know. Even if you try to open a new account it will say your already registered with Koodo when you give your details. Maybe open a line in family members name if that referral is that valuable to you. (With their permission obviously).

You can't port Koodo to Koodo. You have to port out and back in.

I would not want to be a Telus shareholder. They converted $40 prepaid to $35 postpaid. That will hurt the ARPU. Moreover these new postpaid customers will be paying $20 a month for the first year. The most important thing is the psychological lower limit for cell plans at $40 had now been breached. That is why I keep saying the mother of all migration offers will come in December. Remember back in February, the first migration offer was $40/4GB. That's looking like a cruel joke right now. A $35/8GB Christmastime gift is not out of the question. Along with avoiding Telus stock, Shaw is even more precarious. Why would anyone with freedom not be getting Public Mobile service and waiting for the offers.
Well on the long run they are getting more post-paid subscribers, that was what the CEO wanted in the very first place. Get them onboard first, then try to move them up to spend more later.

Rest assured everyone will be bombarded with $60/mo offers later with a tab. I know I have one sitting in my self-serve. You'd be surprised how many people still argue how "$0" phones are "deals" without looking at TCO.

Seems fine however you can't just port your new 8gb line over the old 6gb line phone # You'd have to have the 6gb phone # leave Koodo postpaid... for example go to Koodo prepaid or Public Mobile first ($25 credit for going to pm) or another company then port back that # onto the 8gb line

Oh so I guess I'll have to add the plan as a new line, port my existing Line to like the 10 dollar PM plan and then port it back to the new plan?

What about referral? Can adding a new line to my account be referred, by another account say my friend's?

ARPU means nothing when customers are no longer subscribed at all. Yes Freedom and other carriers must be panicking. Telus is cleaning up. More subscribers means more revenue. They can work on ARPU later.

No because it's an existing account. It's not a new referral.
You can however get a PM referral credit of $25 by using an existing PM members phone #. If your staying with PM 72 hours that will help pay any fees you paid at PM.

But Koodo no if you have an existing account. Unless you make a new account in a family members name then you can refer each other

I don't want to get too off topic here. I can't see how freedom customers can have signal for long enough over a month's time to use up 10 gigs. By the way that would make a good promo code for freedom customers.

What are you trying to do? If you have an existing account with lines in it, just add another line. You can refer your new line using one of your existing lines.
Can you refer new koodo lines inside the same existing account? I didn't think so but could be wrong.
