Cannot port Halifax (Nova Scotia) number

Postby fan2ma » 01/25/2015

Unable to port Halifax landline number to freephoneline.ca. When I try and go through the process of porting my number there doesn't seem to be a way to select Nova Scotia. So I'm stuck ... Thank you.

Fongo currently does not have any Halifax numbers, so they cannot port them. I have no idea when Fongo will be able to do that, but I do know they want to support Halifax. My guess is that Halifax numbers are currently too expensive to support Fongo's business model. Considering that Nova Scotia got a brand new area code we really do not need (we only have a population of a million) you would think the numbers would get cheaper.

I do notice progress though. Winnipeg numbers have recently been supported by Fongo, so hopefully the same will happen to Halifax also,

Instead, I've used the free number they have provided on and off (mostly off). I went to sign into my account which was registered under another email address and got the message that this username/password does not exist. Granted, I haven't used the account in a long time and I guess they cancelled it because it was dormant. What was disappointing was that there was no warning email advising that this was going to occur.
