I lost my old phone, I am supposed to receive and answer a text message on my old phone in order to transfer my number with bell to my new phone, is their any way to still keep my old number if I can't answer the text message?

    If you contract is with bell, you need to replace the SIM with Bell or contact them to see if they have an other way to confirm the transfer

    I assume your Bell Account is still active? I suggest you reach out to them directly, confirm your identity and ask for some other ways to transfer.
    Another option would be to go to Bell directly and get a new SIM.Usually they can cancel the old one and you can receive texts to the new SIM card. They simply link your number to the new SIM.
    I personally never had to answer a text when I transferred numbers.
