How to get region specific plans

Do i need to change my phone number to a number in the province i moved to to get the other province plan??

Re: How to get region specific plans

Hey @Cawtau

 

In order to get a plan from another province, the number absolutely has to be changed. The address is no longer necessary. As long as the number fits the province then it's possible to go ahead and change the plan. Before it was mandatory to have both!

 

Hope this clarifies it  Smiley

@guychiasson2014 correct once you change your address and number to the new province you can get any plan that is currently offered in that province.

Re: How to get region specific plans

Hello,

 

  Can we get a moderator to confirm the information please? According to FidoAmandaN's post here:

 

You no longer need to have both a <Province> number and address as was necessary in the past. 

 

  Is the corollary from that post applicable? If you have an address in a province can you get a plan from that province even though your phone number might be from a different province? Many people might prefer to keep their current phone numbers.

 

 And no, this post has nothing to do with your posts, Kapable-K!

 

Cheers

From FidoAmandaN's post it appears we don't need a number and address for the specific province to get a plan related to that province but you would need to have a number for the province to get that province specific plan.

 

So it looks like the plans are based on the numbers but a moderator can confirm.

Based on what FidoRanya just posted, if someone in Ontario wants to take advantage of, for example, Saskatchewan's $48 BOYD 6GB plan all they have to do is switch their phone number to a Saskatchewan number? What's stopping everyone from doing this because most plans have unlimited Canada-wide calling so long distance is a non-issue?

Right @nick67

 

What I did notice with my experience is that it's inconvenient to give out a number from a different province as not everyone has Canda-wide calls, it's also an inconvenience when making appointments with local businesses . 

 

And remember, the taxes are billed according to your phone number as well!

@nick67 I was thinking the same but I guess the number change is what will deter people from doing it.

Re: How to get region specific plans

Hello, Originally, I got my number and phone plan in Quebec, Now, I am thinking about moving to Ontario but I want to keep my same plan and phone number. Can I keep it or it is obligatory when someone moved to another province they have to change their phone number/plan to the destination province??

Thanks
