Carrier and Cell Numbers That BC area code is the same for all cellular users. In Bc and Canada the numbers will still be different as the number is owned by the company not the person using it. Come march of next year they will be introducing what is called phone number portability in which case customers will be able to take their phone number with them to any carrier they choose.

In BC I know that the area code 778 is usually FIDO. celluar carriers are given blocks of numbers within a certain range. Is there any way to find these blocks of numbers?

How do you switch your cell phone number from your current cell phone to a different cell phone?

If you are staying with the same carrier, just upgrade your phone with them. If you are changing providers, the new carrier needs to fill out some forms with the old carrier. The magic phrase to use with the new carrier is "number portability"; in the USA, all phone carriers are required to transfer your number from one device or service to another. If you are dropping your wired service, you can even transfer your home phone number to your mobile. Or, if you want to go VOIP, the provider there can transfer the number for you.

Yes, when you get a new cell phone, your number may change, if that is the case and you want your old phone number back, call your carrier and ask them to reset the phone and ask if you can change your number. If you want a new number, I do not know but it is fairly possible, I would ask your carrier if you can get a new number without getting a new phone. It seems very likely.

For a cell phone it stands for "Mobile Directory Number"basically means that the Mdn number is basically your cell phone number.

Usually, both Mdn# & Esn# are always needed and most of the time they can be found under your cell phone battery on a white strip for Cdma type phones.i hope this helps:-)
