Mobile number portability is a type of service that helps customers to switch from one telecom operator to another operator without changing the phone number. Mobile number portability was first introduced in January 2011 in India. If you are not satisfied with the current telecom operator then you can join another network without changing the number.
How to Port Your Number
You need to send the text message to 1900 by writing PORT<space><Mobile No>. You will get a unique UPC code within few minutes after sending the message. The UPC code is only valid for 4 days.
Can I port my sim online?
You can do it online or you can visit the nearest telecom operator store along with an Original Aadhaar Card. You will get a new sim card for the new telecom operator. Keep in mind it will take almost 4 to 7 days to complete the full process according to the location. For Jammu & Kashmir and northeast states, it can take up to 15 days. At that time of the actual process, your mobile number might not work for 2- 3 hours.
