I called last night at around 11:50pm EST and ported my number - the rep told me he had '6 minutes until they closed' so it should be fine. Strange that you got an answering machine.

Has anyone successfully gone from the TB $45 plan to the 2 year contract version and gotten a phone? If so what were the steps you went through.

Much appreciated!

You better do it today because Bestbuy has a one day flash sale - $0 phone (htc, LG2, S4) on telus 2 year contract.
1. sign up on virgin mobile on 2 year contract pm telus flash sale for $0 phone
2. change to tbay postal code online if you have a valid one
3. call Care specialist near midnight to switch to tbay plan
4. profit
5. port in number any time after that

So you're saying I'll have to make a account with virgin and then cancel my existing Bell one after I'm done successfully with the phone upgrade?

And risk losing everything since it's only applicable for thunder bay residents

Who pays for the difference? BB or Telus?

Virgin is under Bell though, not Telus. Still applies?
Cell plans - anything more than $10/gb is a ripoff.

You don't Cancel Bell. if you cancel you can't port
when you port out from Bell, the account auto closes
you will get charged 30 days service or give them 30 days notice and them port after that
if you want to port right away, you can try to file complaint to CCTS to get your 30 days charge refunded from Bell (after you see the bill from Bell)

FYI. After extensive conversation between the mods and admins, it has been decided that any discussion regarding getting this deal outside of Thunder Bay will no longer be allowed. This thread will remain open, but anyone discussing how to get this deal outside of Thunder Bay will have their post deleted. Repeated violations may result in a temporary ban from the site.

I'm surprised it took a year...can you add something about all the other bickering / trolling and general forum rules? Those should be enforced in this thread as well for all users.

It's been brought up to a couple of users and we expect things to improve going forward. Just like the MB/SK thread, there will be zero tolerance in this thread as well. Anything off topic will be deleted and constant bickering by the same people will result in bans.

On a side note,

How did you guys setup Youmail with Virgin Mobile ?

I tried to change the conditional call forwarding number but it didn't work.
