Can I change from 450 to 514?

I have a 450 number at the moment, and some systems I want to use have problems with that prefix and work better with a 514 or even a 438 number...

Is it possible for me to change only the prefix with no real impact on my internet plan?

    You cant just change the prefix but you can change the number to a new one with the same nomber, exept the prefix, if he is availlable.

    Because there chance your number with another prefix is use by another person :) Prefix is part of the number you dont own all version of this nomber with all prefix only your number is reserved to you.

    Yes it is possible but you will have to pay a fee for that change; nothing is free unfortunately ..

    PS / Fizz has only 438 prefix number.

    Thanks for the info, but it doesn’t really answer my question...

    When I go to ”change this number ”, it only proposes me to change the number itself, not the prefix 😕

    So, except if I move to Montreal, I can’t change my prefix manually, is that what I understand or I’m lost?

    (If I can change my whole number to a 514 or 438, could I know how pretty please)

    Yep, as far as I know Fizz only has one prefix ( I am not 100% sure though)

    @Whizz something for you!

    You can order a number from in the 514 zone (or anywhere else in North America) and then port that number to Fizz.

    There will be a ~$25 charge to port out from, but I know that it works. I've done it for a friend.

    (I also have a referral code if you want).

    There is a level of technical ability required that may preclude the typical user, but it's doable.

    I commend you for wanting to get a 514 number. Avoid 438 as that is exclusively for people who need burner phones for illicit activities.
