So MNP is real. Then what are all the processes involved in changing the operator.

  1. If you are a post paid customer, do clear all your out standing mobile bill with your existing operator. In the case of pre-paid subscriber, do aware the fact that any balance amount left will not be carried forward when the number is transferred to the new service provider.
  2. Send an SMS (PORT<space>Mobile Number) Eg. ( PORT 999999999) from the number you wish to port, to number 1900. You will receive a Unique Porting Code (UPC) by SMS from your current service provider.
