I see people says"If you transfer a number from Petro Canada Mobile to Fizz you will need a Pin number provided by them. "
I just order a SIM from fizz, want to transfer my number from petro-canada, how can I get the PIN, call petro-canada or what?

Yes you can call them.


See section "Porting your Petro-Canada Mobility number to another service provider" in
Petro-Canada URL:
https://mobility.petro-canada.ca/support-number-portability.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1


Usually Petro Canada account number and your name on account is sufficient for porting.

Seems it's also good to get the account password / PIN from Petro-Canada.

I never saw that, you need the contract number or the IMEI

If you need a referral code this is mine K61CD, in order to have 25$ after the 2 month

LGuo,
You need to call Petro - Canada to get the PIN.
In my porting process with another provider, I had to provide the PIN and the address. I guess you also need the address you put on your Petro - Canada's account. The PIN and the address uniquely identify your account.
