How to cancel my plan but keep my number?

I am leaving Canada for eight months. I was wondering if it is possible to cancel the mobile plan but to keep my phone number? Thanks a lot!


  • You can keep your phone number for sure. but contact fizz first. they will confirm that to you.
    also after you cancel any line that phone number stays locked for a year or so
  • No you cannot, you need to pay each month

    You can keep your phone number by first transferring it to another provider. If you don't have another mobile provider that you will use, you can try a voip provider and pay a small monthly fee to keep it alive. If you don't have a voip account, maybe a friend who has a voip account can help you out with that. Voip phone number at voip.ms as an example costs $1 per month to maintain. When you return, you can then ask to transfer it back.
    P.S. just noticed someone else (Pascal) had a similar response to mine

    The answer is no.

  • You can't cancel the line and keep your number
