TECHNICAL DETAILS
A significant technical aspect of MNP (Mobile Number Portability) is related to the routing of calls or mobile messages (SMS, MMS) to a number once it has been ported. There are various flavors of call routing implementation across the globe but the international and European best practice is via the use of a central database (CDB) of ported numbers.

Network operator makes copies of CDB and queries it to find out which network to send a call to. This is also known as All Call Query (ACQ) and is highly efficient and scalable. Majority of the established and upcoming MNP systems across the world are based on this ACQ/CDB method of call routing.

1. You need to send SMS to 1900 in following format: PORT Your Mobile Number For exp: PORT 9999999999 2. You will get an SMS reply with a unique porting code. SMS to the preferred operator quoting the unique code. This code is valid only for a few days and you will have to apply again if it expires.

3. Now your existing operator will check with new operator & if there are no dues then approval will be given for porting. You can change to another operator only after 90 days. The charge for MNP is Rs. 19 and this will be charged by any of telecom operators for porting a mobile number. 4. You will get an SMS on the time and date when porting will take place. The process may take 3 to 4 hours to complete.

LIMITATIONS OF MNP
Consumers allowed to switch operators only 90 days after a connection is activated. Consumers allowed to change operators within their registered circle only (i.e. if you are within the Gujarat circle you cant shift to a Karnataka circle and so on) While using MNP, operators don't wants to lose their costumers easily . So, they divert them by committing extra offers, which are fake.
