transfer phone number - videotron - previous service provider is invalid message

Hi, I activated my public mobile line yesterday.  I am happy with the service so wanted to port in my number from videotron today.  When I select videotron, it says 'previous service provider is invalid'.  I tried clicking on other service providers and the error doesn't appear and allows you to enter IMEI or account number.  When videotron is selected, the fields remain greyed out.

If I select Fizz, the error doesn't appear.  Since Fizz is a subsidiary of videotron, should I be try the port with that option?

Thanks.

Ya, I tried different browsers in both regular and incognito modes.  I also tried on my mobile phone.  No luck.

I would not try Fizz as your provider. 

The website is finicky. Maybe try a different web browser, clear cache or incognito mode.

If that does not work, you will need to contact customer service agent to help complete port. Landlines and VOIP lines do take several days to port over.
