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?

Try the free website called fonefinder.
