I have just moved from Vancouver Island to Vancouver city and I want to take new fido number of Vancouver. However, I dont want to close my Vancouver Island fido number since I have given it to so many people and I need some time to inform all of them about my new vancouver number.
Can I port the current number to new fido number? However, I dont want to pay for both numbers.
Does fido have auto-divert feature where if somebody calls me on the old number, it will get auto-diverted to my new fido number? Again I dont want to pay for both numbers.
What could be another best solution?
Thanks in advance.
Hey @adityakulkarni and thanks for reaching out.
Happy to have you with us.
Concerning porting in your current Vancouver Island number to a brand new line, that's definitely possible. However, you would end up paying for 2 lines with us. It wouldn't be possible to have the new line at no charge.
About the Auto-divert feature, that's not something that we offer on our end.
I can suggest to send a group SMS to all your contacts before having your line cancelled.
Let me know if this answers your questions
