Mobile Phone Portability a useful facility




Most awaiting service “Mobile Number Portability” nation wide from tomorrow. Customers now can change their operator without changing mobile number. Honorable Prime Minister Manmohan Singh have launch mobile number portability all over India.

We hope mobile operator now enhance quality of service such as call drop after launching of this service due to fear of customers run away. Some of operator now charge customers when they call on their customer care number however most of the companies customers care numbers are toll free. TRAI have fixed charges Rs. 19 to be paid to new mobile operator along with identity proof and address.

Get 8 digit Unique Porting Code (UPC) by sending sms to service number 1900 in following format.

PORT <10 digit mobile number>


You will get an SMS reply that contains a unique porting code.
SMS to the preferred operator quoting the unique code. This code is valid only for a few days, and one must apply again if it expires.
Your existing operator will check with new operator & if there are no dues then approval will be given for porting.
You will get an SMS on the time and date when porting will take place. Rules mandate that process be completed within 4 days of applying.

After porting is complete, wait for an SMS from your new operator confirming the switch. Your phone may be dead for about 2 hours when the porting takes place.

Do  you know that :

Your post paid number can be switched to pre paid number and vice versa.
Only mobile number can be shift. No MNP for land line numbers.
Your CDMA number can be switched on GSM network.
Switching only allowed within circle. Technically, this restriction possibly due to that number series assign by government to specific circle and operator and system in place to identify if porting allowed from one circle to another.
