Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is started and inaugurated by Prime Minster himself. Mobile users were waiting for this very eagerly as this service will give them an edge to deal with their mobile service providers. Finally, all our tensions are over, from today mobile users can change their operator without changing their number. After lots of delay in mobile portability service (MNP) is been apply in whole country (India). Mobile phone companies will pay more attention towards their users from today. To let their users not go away companies will start more new services. Now you can go and on change the company from Airtel to BSNL or Vodafone or whatsoever and just have the same mobile number.

Steps to be Done for Number Portability :-

1. To begin with, you need to generate UPC (Unique Porting Code) by sending SMS to 1900.
• SMS to be sent : PORT to 1900. Operator SMS charges will be applicable.
• Eg. SMS PORT 98XXXXXXXX to 1900

2. After sending SMS to 1900, you will receive UPC (Unique Porting Code) as a SMS from 1901 giving 8 digit alpha-numeric Unique Porting Code (UPC) and UPC expiry date in MM/DD/YYYY format

3. Visit your nearest new service provider outlet / showroom

4. Fill Mobile Number Porting (MNP) form providing details like • Current Mobile Number,• Current Operator name,• UPC code

5. Submit Address & Id proof documents, self-attested photo and last bill copy of postpaid connection (if applicable) along-with filled MNP form and Customer Agreement Form.

6. Buy the new service provider MNP SIM card from new service provider outlet / showroom. SIM charges, talktime value and porting charge are non-refundable in the event of cancellation / rejection of port-in request.

7. Your new service provider will send an SMS on your old/existing operator’s SIM (existing connection) intimating about the porting date and time, i.e. the date and approximate time till when you can continue to use your existing operator’s SIM card.

8. There will be a 2-hour ‘no service period’ which will begin after the porting time as given above. The ‘no service period’ will be between 12 midnight to 5 am during which your mobile service will not be active on any SIM. All efforts will be made to ensure that this ‘no service period’ causes minimum inconvenience to you.

9. To change from one operator to other, 90 days time period you’ll get means once you changed your operator you’ll not be able to switch to any other operator till 90 days.

Dear Sir,
Ketan Sodha from Mumbai Mobile # 9821423923 (post paid subscriber)
MNP Request porting code # LM318136

I have submitted a MNP (port out) request from loop mobile (Mumbai) to Vodafone (Mumbai) but the same has been rejected twice by Loop mobile, so many subscriber like me are listed on the net and having no clue where and how to solve such issue.

Kindly note that the two requests have been rejected on account of subsisting contractual obligations. However as per the loop mobile helpline and Loop Gallery located at Fort, Mumbai there are no pending contractual obligations on this mobile number. I have made sure that I do not have any free or paid service falls under contractual obligations along with excess payment as credit in to my account.

The relationship manager Ms. Megha (09870900101) (Mumbai) has not been of any significant help and passes the blame of rejection to higher authority which she could explain which higher authority has right to reject and could not provide the guide line set by Loop mobile by saying that “MNP guide line set by Loop mobile” is classified information and she not allowed to disclose the same to any subscriber.
Request you to kindly register a complaint against loop mobile and take necessary action to resolve this issue.

The services of loop mobile are no longer satisfactory and hence this request has been raised to the consumer forum.

Kindly revert at the earliest.
