Air time & data time

Planning to move to Calgary. Once I cancel my current plan I have in Winnipeg, can I simply buy some minutes/data from Telus to use on my current cell phone until I get settled in with a new cell company in Calgary? Can I keep my cell number? Hope this question makes sense….

If you cancel your plan, your number disappears. Usually you can’t port your number out of province, but have to get a local number. Until you are settled, I suggest keeping your current plan. If you determine your existing phone number still has value to you, you can port it to a VoIP provider, and call forward it to your new number, or use an app on your phone to access the number. Or you could get a dual SIM phone, and maintain your Winnipeg number on a second cellular account.

But if I don’t cancel my plan, I will be charged a large amount in long distance charges every time I want to make a call. I’m currently with MTS. So I guess it’s best to cxl everything & just get a new #, and buy some minutes and data.
