  • When you activate your new SIM there will be an option to use your existing number, then you will need to input your account number. It can take up to 2 hours, but mine was ported over in about 5 minutes.
  • I want know this too. Nobody answer this question before. I guess a manual porting need to be involved.
  • You can do this when you activate your card and order a plan. Normally, you need to provide your account number in your previous provider. however, it depends, mostly it goes smoothly, sometimes you will confront some problems and can not do a transfer by the system automatically. in such condition, you need to fill a contact form in your file and do a transfer manually. good luck.
  • The problem Is we don't have account numbers with fongo... What info can we provide. The Fizz FAQ shared by M.T.doesn't mention Fongo

    Thanks for letting me know. how you guys made it happend
  • you can also use your IMEI number to do a transfer. To find the 15 digit IMEI number in your phone by dialling *#06#.
  • IMEI won't work with Fongo since it is Voip... Anyone did it?
  • So... I tried to transfer my number... as soon as I enter my phone number the system tell me that it cannot transfer number from Landline.... other people on the forum did it... anyone has an explanation ?
    I just want to recap... I am with Fongo (voip company), I don't have an account number and IMEI won't work with my situation.
    thanks again
  • I got an answer from Fizz. It is impossible to import a number from Fongo. Case closed. Thanks
  • Did some research. Someone port number from fongo to Koodo, then from Koodo to fizz.
