Mobile Number Porting Process Across INDIA [Step by Step Procedure]

MNP India




Mobile Number Portability (MNP) was launched across all the circles in INDIA on 20-JAN-2011.  The procedure for MNP is as follows:

1. Send a message as  PORT <space> Mobile Number to 1900 [Toll Free].
  Eg: PORT   9999999999    and send this message to 1900.

2. You will receive a UPC Code in message. Note it down.

3. Now goto the nearest Customer service centre (or Retailers) of Network you want to shift. (for ex, if you are shifting from X to Y network, Goto Y's Customer Centre).

4. Fill the Form and pay Rs. 19. In the form you have to mention UPC Code ( From Step 2). Submit your Photo & Address Proof.

5. The customer centre will give a new Empty sim, after your payment and document submission.

6. With in 24 Hrs you will receive an Acceptance Message to Confirm the Porting (for your old sim). Then You have to Agree with that by replying to the Message.

7. In the next 24 hrs you will get a another message (for your old sim) to select a 2hrs time slot.
In this time your number will not work because the porting process will be done at this time. So give a 2hrs time which is convenient for you.

8. After this 2hrs the new sim (From Step 5) will work.

9. Insert the new sim in your phone, Now You are in the new network with old number.

The whole porting process is taking 1 week time.

Once you ported to new operator, the minimum time to stay with the new operator is 3 months. So in this 3 months time you can't able to port your number once again.

So are you porting your number? If yes, from which network to which one and why ? Share your views about your current Mobile Operator to others in comments.

vodafone 2g is horrible!! and Docomo customer care is the worst!! plz think again if you r planning to switch to either of these useless networks!!

Sameer Kulkarni said...

Have been a loyal GOLD customer of Idea for last 10 years. Switching now to Airtel as Idea does not offer Blackberry services with 3G and their 2G i.e Edge sucks bigtime.

lucky said...

unior worthless hopeless network i have ever used
simply they r deducting amounts without my permission and moreover just they r waiting for my recharge as soon as i am recharging they r deducting money .I tried to reach customer care number.The most funniest thing they can deduct money even when our mobile switched off.
kind suggestion never opt for this network my friends.
