  • This is how Mobile Number portability would work for a normal user.

    1. Send the following SMS to 1900 – PORT <Your Mobile Number> – eg. PORT 9123456789
    2. You will get an SMS with your unique porting code. This is a unique number that will be maintained along with your mobile number with a third party called  MNP Service Provider (Selected companies for this service in India- Syniverse Technologies and Telcordia). The unique code has a expiry time. You need to apply to the new preferred operator with that code within the stipulated time.
    3. The new operator will communicate with existing operator and ask for permission. If approved thenew operator will set a time for porting and communicate this to MNP provider and existing operator.
    4. On the set date and time, the current operator will disconnect the number and pass the message to MNP provider.
    5. The new operator will now claim that number and MNP would maintain a central database with the new details.
