What prefix is your number?
The following is just the prefix 200. It's used in many area codes. You could try any of the area codes in AB and your 7 digits and see if anyone answers. Those area codes are 368, 403, 587, 780, 825. Then the challenge is getting it.

hai, I'm planning to transfer my number from Ontario to Alberta, any idea if I can get the same phone number?
You can change your number to a new Alberta area coded number OR you can just keep using your current Ont area coded number while anywhere in Canada.
That might not be practical for people calling him as not everybody has free Canada wide calls. And it might be confusing - this person lives in AB, why I am calling ON number??
This is old school thinking. If there was no such thing as long distance, then the area code is just an extension of the 7 digit number. I don't remember contact numbers anymore. Look up a name and dial the 10 digit number whatever it is.
My thoughts exactly. Thank you for making the effort to supply the info necessary for the OP to determine if it's possible to fulfill his request.
Start by calling the different area codes with your 7 digit phone number. If any of them are not in service then go from there to determine if any if them belong to telus. If they do then Contact customer support to see if they are available to claim and see if it's possible to help you out in that regard. If the number us available thru a voip provider then attempt to acquire the number thru them and you can port it in eventually to replace your current phone #.
To contact customer support : Submit a support ticket via SIMon the chat bot Click here
Or if you cannot submit a ticket via SIMon then Click here ....for additional member supplied info.
Sorry no dice, you can still keep the same number with the Ontario area code, I'm assuming you have Canada wide calling? Also if you are moving to Alberta and make the switch of address etc I believe you will get dinged a little less in tax if I'm not mistaken
The address associated with the account doesn't determine the sale tax rate. This is solely based on the province of the phone number or the purchase location of retail vouchers.
@JL9The area code of the number decides the provincial tax rate for paying by credit card in the account. If you live in AB you can just get vouchers and pay the provincial rate in the store. Some sellers only charge GST in other provinces. With Canada-wide you can be anywhere and call anywhere. People calling you depends on their own calling plan.
