Porting from Koodo, simply says not eligible

I have an active plan with Koodo with a number I want to port to my newly registered and activated Public account with a temporary number.

 

When I try to do this myself I get:

"

We were unable to transfer the phone number you entered. Try one of the following options:
-  Make sure you entered your number correctly.
-  Select a new number.
-  Contact the Public Mobile Community for further assistance."
 
Despite all of the advice shared here, this doesn't appear to actually work for me.  Ive contacted Koodo and all they said is that Public has to take care of this.
 
I believe I need a moderator or admin to assist me.  No idea how to even start in getting that to happen.
 
I'm contemplating if I have made a mistake trying to switch to this service.

Is it a Koodo prepaid you have? If so them you must port with the moderators help. If it's postpaid you should be able to port it through your self serve account

Well I have phoned Koodo 3 times and talked to reps in person at kiosks.  They assure me PM has to do this. I am completely lost at this point.

@ramathorn11  yes pm has to port it.  Just send them a message with your account information and your old account number and phone number you wish to port to public mobile!

@ramathorn11  Because Koodo and Public Mobile share the same backed system your port needs to be done by Public Mobile by sending a message with the Koodo account number, name on account and Koodo number to the moderator team. If you are currently activating your PM sim just pick a temp PM number and message the moderator after completing the activation. Do not close out your Koodo account as it must remain active for the port to complete.

 

To contact Public Mobile click here. The link  sends you to the private message function and adds the moderator team as recipient for a private message. You just have to enter a title and text in the body of the message describing the problem and post. The message will be received by the moderator team and they will respond to it. You will receive the response in your private message inbox.

Moderators are available: M-F from 8 AM to midnight Eastern time and S-S from 8 AM to 10 PM Eastern time.

Note: Moderator Hours are subject to change, but you can always find the current times here

Please note that account verification may be required when contacting the Moderator Team 

 

In the meantime just continue to use your Kood soim until it stops working. Once this is done just insert your PM and you should be good to go.
