    Order phone online STARTING with out of province number/plan

    Is it possible to order a phone online starting with an out of province number/plan? That way when it arrives you can simply port to it?

    Shipping to a local, real address of course (not the same province as number). Thanks.

    Nope, Koodo will cancel it right away. I've tried it , few friends have tried it (with or without a phone (just a sim)) and all got cancelled.

    Ty. Wasn't sure if my thread was being seen - we've got a huge discussion going on about the out of province plans again taking up the top spot despite the 1700+ reply thread that got locked. Find it odd

    It may or may not work. A friend of mine is on SK $48 plan with an Ontario number. He ordered LG G6 recently and received it.
    Cell phone history:
    Motorola DPC 550 - Ericsson DF388 - Sanyo SCP-4000 - Samsung SCH-N150 - Samsung SCH-T300 - LG TM520 - LG VX-4600 - BlackBerry 6750 - BlackBerry 7250 - Samsung SGH-807 - T-Mobile Dash - Motorola RAZR - BlackBerry Bold 9000 - BlackBerry Torch 9800 - Samsung Galaxy S Captivate (rooted) - Samsung Nexus S - Samsung Galaxy S III LTE (rooted, running SlimBean 4.3) - Oppo Find 7a - Moto X Play - OnePlus 3T Midnight Black Limited Edition

    From my experience, getting a new out of province plan, regardless with or without a device is the problem. Koodo might be lenient on existing customers. I've replaced my wife's Koodo sim (also with the $48 SK plan) probably 3 times for the past 4 years and never had any issue.

    Why?
    You normally need to wait 5+ days to bill cycle anyways

    So order with in market plan
    Wait 5+ days
    THEN start process to change


    As far as upgrades go, never had any issue with SK, MB, or PQ plans
    Public $120 Province Wide + 12GB - $6 Autopay - $6 Loyalty - $42 Refer = $22 per Month
    Telus SK North American Wide 7GB = $65
    Chatr (Mobi) $40 North America Wide + 6GB + 30 Mins Roaming

    I just tried to order a new iphone7 on the brightfriday deal (in ON, using a QC plan), and when I try to add the tab to my plan it says "this plan is not available in your province)... any tips?

    EDIT: strange solution, switched from chrome to safari and I was able to proceed with the purchase!

    Let me know if you actually get the order. Others have indicated that their orders were cancelled.
