    Hi Lenbe,


    No you cannot, you can only choose the last 4 digits


    How do I get a new phone number?

    Choose a random number

    Choose the last 4 digits

    Getting a new number for your mobile plan is easily done via your Fizz account. Your plan must be active of course, and you’ll have a one-time fee to pay, which will be clearly should you decide to proceed. You’ll have two options:  

    1. Choose a random number from the selection presented to you.  

    2. Find a number by entering the last four (4) digits of your choice.  

    You can change your number whenever you want, and as many times as you like, but no more than once per month.

    Hello @lenbe, you can transfer only Canadian numbers, and more specifically QC or numbers in the Ottawa area.
