Good thread!! Great job Sajjad365..
I got a couple of SIM and I called in to sign up for a new activation and I was provided with a Montreal area code.
I got the basic plan and then I signed up online to switch to the $55 8GB plan but don't know if I got the 1000 long distance plan. How can I confirm?
I will be posting over ny Bell number and my wife is already on the MB Koodo plan.
I understand for her I will need to first port her number to prepaid for 1 day then port to new post paid all via self serve.

With reference to address fraud being a punishable offence (in reference to instructions in this article), I don't believe it applies to comparison shopping. Address fraud is done in conjunction with another crime such as identify theft, putting your kids in a school jurisdiction which you do not have rights to, or voting in another jurisdiction, provincial health insurance, taxes, or other provincial or federal regulations etc.
There is nothing wrong with having multiple addresses, provided that you have agreement with the person that owns the other address.
You are legally entitled to comparison shop and buy from the Vendor and jurisdiction of your choice. It's no different from using the US mail forwarders, to buy US goods from companies that don't ship to Canada.
You may be in violation of Tort (Contract) Law, and they could sue you for damages. But A) Companies don't sue paying customers, B) Damages would be close to nil, as telco carrier costs are only slightly different by province. c) They don't need any more bad PR that they are ripping off 80% of Canadians.
It is civally and criminally actionable ...
The point is not whether or not you would be sued or a criminal complaint filed against you by Koodo ... the point is ... don't pass on misinformation about the legality.. if you have to lie or misrepresent yourself... it's not good ... do at your own risk... and enjoy
sajjad365, you should add something to the FAQ about the bogus 90-day warning, since this came up so often in the other thread and has already come up here (on the first day)!
However, given the fact is that Koodo can bankrupt 99.9% of us with a lawsuit, so it is safer to use the first two methods which does not involve using somebody else's address with permission. However under tort law, Koodo could still seek damages, for gaming their system under the first two scenarios. However, they still make a good profit on the $48/$54 dollar plan, and it's not good business to sue your own customers with frivolous and vexatious lawsuits.
This forum is not the place to discuss or debate Canadian law, so I will leave it at that.
I'm on $48/MB plan. Would like to switch to $55/QC but I want to get a new phone from PC Mobile (they offer good discount) . If I get a new phone + new Koodo ON# line will I be able to switch to QC and do all the magic having a phone on tab?
