Porting from Koodo:

If your switching from Koodo postpaid your can port-in your number during sim activation. Just have your Koodo account number, name on the Koodo account and Koodo number ready and enter it when choosing your number.

 

If it's Koodo prepaid then you need to click this link and type in “port request” to be put in touch with a Moderator. Include the Koodo info above.

Re: Porting a number

@Claudine1718 during the activation signup there will be an option to port your number ove

 

If it is Koodo prepaid select a new number and then open a ticket for moderators to port your number over.

 

You can also select a new number when activating to test if everything works before porting your number over. You would click the "? Question mark" and type "port request" then follow the instructions.

 

Ensure that the account with the  number you are porting over is in good standing or you will not be able to port. Unless it is with Telus, Koodo. Freedom apparently lets you port as well if account is not active for first 10 days.

 

Don't forget to use a referral code for a $10 signup bonus.

Re: Porting a number

I tired porting the number and it said my request was rejected by the provider possibly due to incorrect account#, equipment serial#, PIN# etc. Yet no where does PublicM ask for this information in the form it asks me to complete

Re: Porting a number

@Claudine1718  your screenshot shows all your personal information. Plese delete it. This is a public forum and everyone can see it.

 

Click the 3 dots on right of that post and select "edit reply" to remove it.

 

Once you remove it there. Click your badge (sailboat) at top right next to your envelope. Select "My profile" scroll all the way down to your pictures and delete it from there as well.

 

 

As for your issue. Simply way to is to sign-up with a new number and when you're done creating your account contact the moderators to port your number over.. Also ensure on your Rogers account you don't have porting blocked.

Is this Rogers Wireless or a Rogers home phone?

 

If it's Rogers Wireless that you're tranfering in a phone number from, do not fill anyting in for reseller's name.  And while old account password is there, once again, ignore it and leave it blank. It's not your Rogers self servie password, but your Rogers account PIN, but as I said, you don't need it, and really shouldn't use it. Also ignore the IMEI (device serial number) field. Use only your Rogers account number.
