Bit of a funny situation for me here. Switched Public to Koodo for the $40/6GB offer (plan 1), somehow still got the offer for $40 8GB plus $180 bill credits (plan 2). They called this morning and said plan 2 will be added to my account as another line. So how do i switch my current number from plan 1 to plan 2? Do I port out to pre-paid then port back into plan 2? If so, whats the cheapest/best way of doing this? Thanks!

Port out to prepaid either Koodo or PM. Don’t go outside the Telus family. PM is cheaper. $10 plan

Oh, that would be nice.
My assumption was from reading about those who signed up for the $45/6GB, still waiting, despite already receiving their simcard.

I thought Koodo doesn't automatically port online activations?

If there select new number, Koodo Rep might raise red flag, this PROMO for migration not new number but when the sim card arrived, he/she have option to choose

Not too sure about the specifics, but when I was checking out I was offered the option of "give me a new number" or "transfer my current number."

Yes, from my experience it appears right after activation email

Look like you have Koodo account set up already, login in your Koodo account, your sim card already activated

I don't think that should be a concern, they'll have some other check you need to clear before they port your number (like, asking for your PM account number or PIN or something).

The advice so far has actually been to choose "port" even if you're using someone else's number, or don't want to port your PM number when signing up for the promo, so that you don't raise suspicion when they process your order. Apparently they have to send you a SIM card with a temporary number anyways, so then after you activate you can port a different number or I guess keep the number that came with the SIM.
