Airtel has announced that it is all set to launch National Mobile Number Portability allowing customers to move across the country without having to change their mobile number.
Porting a number within Airtel’s own networks will be processed within 24 hours and all incoming calls on roaming will be free once the number portability request is raised.
Prepaid customers will be able to transfer their balance while post paid customers can carry forward their bill amount while porting their number to a new city.
The move has been a long time in the coming and will save customers a lot of hassle when it comes to moving from one city to another. Mobile phones are indispensable these days and everyone just dreads changing their number.
The process for National Mobile Number Portability is the same as that intra-city mobile number portability. Customers can walk into an Airtel outlet and follow the MNP procedure as advised.
Airtel also said that National Mobile Number Portability will not be available to customers moving to J&K, Assam and the North East owing to security reasons.
