Re: Number porting from Fido to Public Mobile

Keep your Fido account active so you keep your number.

 

Get a Public Mobile sim card and activate it.

Pick a temporary number.

Login to self-serve click on change number then select 'transfer a wireless or wireline from another provider".

Type in your Fido number and fill in the required account details and it should take a few hours to be done.

 

If however something goes wrong and certain features such as calling and receiving calls doesn't work then the port is stuck and you would need to contact Public Mobile with a support ticket.

When porting, use your Fido account number if possible, but leave both Fido account PIN, and IMEI blank. Filling those in 2 fields in will not help and could cause complications.

You will need to keep your Fido account open during the porting process.

Here is more info about porting.
