Moving, need new BC number, want to call forward old number

Hi

 

I'm moving from Montreal to Vancouver.  I need a new local number in BC for my buzzer etc.  However, I will be getting important phone calls for the next month or so on my old Montreal number.  I want to call forward my old number to my new number for a month.  Does Fido offer this serrvice?

 

If not, I know that VOIP.ms, a voip provider, is able to port my 514 Montreal number to their service, and then forward it to my new number.  However, I don't want Fido to interpret this as me cancelling my contract service etc.  If I did this, I don't know when to initiate it.  They probably won't let me port "my" old number if I have already given it up I assume?

 

Thanks for the help

What you need to do is activate a new line on your Fido account and associate a Vancouver number to it. You can then port your Montreal line to VOIP.ms. Note that your services associated to the Montreal line will be lost, and if there is a Tab on that line, it will be canceled. Once the port is complete you can proceed with the call forwarding.
