I'm currently with Rogers Wireless and want to switch to Telus Mobility. Can I keep the same phone number?

To top up on what @NFtoBC said, it can take up to 2 hours for a Rogers cellular number to be ported over to another carrier, longer if it's a landline number.

 

I've ported to and from quite a few carriers over the years, if you provide them all the information needed, it's usually takes a matter of minutes. I believe they require the account number, IMEI and security PIN from your outgoing provider. 

 

Hope that helps. 🙂

You can port your number from Rogers. It may take some time to occur, so discuss with Telus when you buy your phone to confirm the process.

Hey! "Lisroy" switching carrier, great idea.- Regarding if you, can keep the same Phone Number, Yes, absolutly this was one of the success, put in practice, last year by the "CRTC" how long the switch, would take, 5min, hrs, 1day, isn't too relevant

as long as you keep the same Phone#. Report any result to forum & welcome to the TELUS Network.  <Bye>  "v9"
