Porting in non-QC and non-Ottawa number - will it go through?

Hello!
Can I port my non-QC and non-Ottawa number in? I live in Ottawa now and got Manitoba number (204).
Fizz plans are sooo delicious so the only thing that prevents me from jumping in is portability question.
Thanks!

You absolutely need to have a Quebec or Ottawa number in order to port-in with Fizz.
For Ottawa region, Here's the detail :

It will not allow you activate the number. Plus even if you were willing to accept a different number, if you were not in the service area of Quebec / Ottawa for more than 3 months in a row, fizz would have the right to terminate the service anyways.

Just something to keep in mind.

Since you actually live in Ottawa, you can still get an Ottawa number to take advantage of the lower cost, then use a VoIP provider to port your Manitoba number and have that CFWD to your Ottawa number. It will cost you a little bit for CFWD, but over time you can give your new numbers out.

Here is the solution. Get a 819 (gatineau) or 613 (ottawa) or 343 (ottawa) Fizz card. After everything all set. Download a Fongo app and get a 204 number, then forward it to this Fizz number.
