    .....just wanted to say that I just ordered online from Telus mobility an HTC Desire.

    1 question: I chose the option to make a new cell number, but during the proccess of ordering, it didnt give me any option to create any cell phone number for my new device. anyone know when i get to create my own number or choose one?

    hmmm..... didnt know they let you choose your own..... sounds odd......... maybe when you chose to create a new number what you actually did was create a new line....... and now youre gonna be billed for 2 lines

    You kinda can make your number, but with a choice of restricted first 3 digit (area+3dig) and as long as the last 4 is available, plus you get charged an extra $10 for doing it. I added a number today so I saw the feature and figured I'd skip it and use the auto assign one.

    You WILL be billed for 2 lines.

    No as long as you're on the same account it'll be on the same bill, but you're going to have 2 seperate lines with seperate plans, they got rid of the plan sharing feature.

    I used the auto assign, which just gives you a random number.

    what do you mean 'if im on the same account'?

    can i just delete the number they gave me and choose one of the 3 they offer me?
