mobile-number-portability-procedure
mobile-number-portability-procedure

For many years we have been using the same number even if it had network issues, not a good recharge scheme and even if their customer care doesn’t even help us in trouble. Just because changing your network means changing your number. With MNP (mobile number portability) now we have the freedom to change network provider. In this article, we will share with you how to port a mobile number to other network.

Who is eligible to port their number?

  • The number needs to be active at least 90 days before porting request.
  • There must be no due payment on the number if the number has existing bills to pay, then they are not eligible until they clear all dues.
  • The number will be changed in the same telecom circle, it means if you are from Punjab then you cannot port your number to Maharashtra.
  • There must be no credit taken on the number, such as balance loan on the prepaid number, you recharge first and clear all the credit, then you can change the network.

Once you know that you are eligible for porting, you can visit the website of your new network, check their tariff plans and data plans. If you travel outside your state, you need to check their roaming plan as well. Here is the list of websites you can try.

Airtel.in,
BSNL.co.in,
Ideacellular.com,
Tatadocomo.com,
Vodafone.in
Aircel.com

When you know that which company you are choosing, you need to call them and ask for the procedure and special offers. They will suggest sending the port message and give them the UPC (Unique Porting Code), but if you ask for a better offer, they will surely comply and give you one which is not listed on their website.

How to Port a mobile sim to other network?

  • You need to send an SMS from your number to 1900, the SMS will be,
    PORT<Space>Mobile Number to 1900
  • Once you send the message, you will receive the UPC code, you will also get an SMS telling the timeline of its expiry date.
  • You need to visit your network operator shop with the following documents
  1. Passport size picture (1 or 2, its depend on the company)
  2. Address proof, such as Aadhar card, ration card, election card, driving license.
  3. If you are taking a postpaid card and you are not living in the same city as it mentions in your address proof, you can submit, rent agreement, electricity bill.
  • Once the documentation is over, you will receive a sim card.
  • You will be charged 19rs for sim and it may be varied per network you choose.
  • Your current card will be still operating, it will take 7 days to port.
  • During the 7 days, you will be updated of your port required by the network you have port
  • Once your current sim card stops working, you can change it to new sim card which has been given to you.
  • It will take 2 hours for transformation, during those 2 hours your number will be stopped to receive any call or messages. Once it’s activated, you have successfully ported to another network.

Important note

  • You can send porting message to 1900 except the Jammu and Kashmir.
  • It will take 15 days for Jammu & Kashmir, Assam, and North East, not 7 days like in other state.
  • The process and delay are because of the security reason and neither your current operator or new could change it.
  • You can withdraw your porting request within 24 hours of sending the message to 1900

This process is fairly easy and doesn’t require much of your time. You can ask your future network to collect your documents from your home and office and they will surely do that, if not then you need to visit their store. If you have any question regarding Porting to another network, you can ask us in the comment.
