swapping two cell services

I'm on Fido, and my wife is on Bell. I'm trying to figure out if it is possible for us to swap our services, while keeping our respective phone #'s. The reason for this is that she has unlimited data, which she doesn't use much of, and I have nationwide calling, which I don't use much of.

Ideal would be for us to take over each others plans without losing our cell #'s or plans. No contracts involved, as we are both on month to month.

Any thoughts?

It might more trouble some, but why not just change phones you take her phone with her number and you use Fido and she uses yours, you just pay each others phone bill. True you might have give all your contacts the new numbers. The only thing is I'm not sure if your SD card will work in each others phones if want to keep the same phones?

Yes, that would be the easiest, but she's not too keen on changing her number.

Pretty much guaranteed that you won't be able to just "swap services". It would involve porting your numbers to the other carrier, but any older plans wouldn't be available.

Unless you can convince her to give up her number, or you can get a better plan somewhere else for both of you, you are probably out of luck.
