Idea Cellular MNP.  The process of porting Idea mobile number to another Mobile operator is so simple & easy. Just follow the below 4-steps simple process to port successfully:

  1. Know your Mobile Number Porting eligibility

    • Call the customer-care of the new Mobile operator you wish to port and understand their pre-requisites, documents required and terms & conditions. You can read these in their CAF (Customer Application Form) or ask their executive.
    • If you wish to port-out, fill the CAF & Porting Form. To fill these forms, you will need Unique Porting Code.
  2. Get UPC (Unique Porting Code)

    • Send SMS in below format to obtain UPC from Idea Cellular:
      • PORT xxxxxxxxxx to 1900. Replace X’s with your 10-digit Idea mobile number.
    • If you are from Jammu & Kashmir and a pre-paid subscriber, call 1900 to get the UPC.
    • Idea will provide an auto generated 8 digits UPC; first two characters are alphabets & rest of six is numerical characters.
  3. Mobile Number Porting request

    • Submit the duly filled CAF & Porting Form to your new mobile operator. Below details are mandatory:
      • UPC (Unique Porting Code)
      • Documents required by your new Mobile Operator
      • Last bill paid receipt from Idea, if you are a post-paid subscriber
    • Get new SIM card from your new Mobile operator.
    • Your new Mobile operator may charge Rs. 19/- as porting charges.
    • Note: You can cancel MNP request only within 24 hours from submitting the CAF & Porting Form. Read Idea Cellular MNP FAQ’s.
  4. Activation of your ported Mobile number

    • If your porting request from Idea is accepted, your new Mobile operator will confirm the same in 3-4 working days.
    • Your new Mobile operator will inform you the date & time of when the porting will happen, by SMS.
    • On 7th Working day, you will be ported to your new Mobile operator. If you are from Jammu & Kashmir, Assam & North East, it will be on 15th working day.
    • There will be about 2-4 hours service disruption during the porting process, mostly during night only.
    • Replace your current Idea SIM card with new SIM card provided by your new Mobile operator.

    i have a post paid number with idea cellular 8446434 703 with idea housefull plan. suddently in the month of feb – march 15, i receive bill for approx 1900/- and when enquired, i was explained that i have used internet in excess of normal plan to the tune of nearly 350 mb which is charged for 1250 and rest is the billing plan. when enquired and filed a complain with customercare, it was explained some funny reason because 350 or 400 mb data if charged for 1250 is simply un-authentic and unrealistic. however, being aggreived i have choosed to port my number with some other better service provider with due payment of all their dues, but to my utter surprise, they continuously rejecting my application for porting in one or the other excuse of payment outstanding lately i have paid some additional amount as advance also and send the account updatation which too have been denied with excuse of physical payment receipt. this kind of cheap and dirty game was never expected from adityabirla group. yet i am suffering from their nasty attitude. i shall request all concerned to take note of and whosoever can come in helping hand would be appreciated.

    Wat abt my previous balance and packs going on my old service provider? ? Will I get dem in my new service provider ?

    Also can I get the no of zonal officer for idea I stay at lower parel mumbai.

    • TelecomDiary on 11th Nov' 14Reply

      Hello Sagar,

      1) Normally Rs.19/- is MNP charges, most of the time this will be waived off / discounted by new operator.
      2) SIM charges, depends on the operator and type of SIM you need (Normal, Mini or Micro)
      3) All the balances and packs will be expired, once you moved to new operator.

But since, 13-08-14 morning there is no vodafone network n no message also. So I tried Idea sim, it is displaying full range but for incoming and outgoing calls it says ” This number is incorrect.

      Although, MNP charges are Rs. 19/- only, it seems the Rs.500/- has been taken as security deposit, because of the Postpaid. They would have asked you Rs. 500/- as security deposit, even you apply for new post paid subscription.

    I like the idea services ,but although we are choosing the English language option for the costumer care information you are not providing that ,moreover when we are trying to talk with little knowledge of Hindi there not getting us instead of that your people are questioning us that ”are you calling for time pass”
    Please think then how a customer can stay with IDEA connection ? That happened to me while called Lucknow(E) today around 2;30 pm .one a girl from your customer care executive replied that ”are you calling for time pass”

    last month I submitted documents to move to vodafone postpaid delhi from idea postpaid delhi. Billing date is 15th of every month. using monthly rentals 99/- plus 99/- for 2G GPRS services. (note : there are free 300 minutes calling to any number with my plan).
    I paid extra 200/- and applied to port out on 4rth April (account balance at -200/- (negative))
    Idea rejected it and said this was due to payment issue, my next bill generated on 15th April with amount of 23/- as every amount was paid in advance.
    Again I paid 300 before bill date, At this moment, my unbilled usage is just 12/-, expected rent till 14th May is 99+99+taxes, I am not considering my free 300 minutes and current account status is at-270/- which covers all rentasl/taxes and unbilled usage till billing date.
    Please suggest if Idea will allow to port out this time or need to go for any legal step

        As per TRAI, there has to be address verification for any new mobile connection, in particular post-paid.
        If no one has visited you for address verification, then you should not be porting to Idea, for pro-activeness call Idea customer care and request for porting cancellation and to Vodafone as well.

    Telecom Diary,

    I bought a handful of premium numbers on auction from BSNL CDMA this March. Namely, 9190099999, 919065555 and more. Its been more than 3 months and i decide to get them ported. Now, I request for the port code but these guys aren’t sending me any port codes!? I call up their customer care and one of them says that you just can’t port out of BSNL CDMA. I tell him that since TRAI has issued orders, it stands for all operators and BSNL has to comply. He coldly replies that this is how things are and they cant do anything ?! I’d just like to ask if this is true – The numbers come from Madhya Pradesh circle. Please tell me what I should do as I’ve invested alot of money in these numbers and BSNL CDMA is way worse than GSM.

    PS. According to the latest TRAI guidelines, porting out premium numbers is now allowed.

I get messages saying that i have subscribed for jokes or some tips which I haven’t. When i try calling the customer service, I don’t get to speak to authorized people as they put me on that digital answering machine. once I did get to speak with a person at the service station but that person dint help me one bit.I ignored the issue and did forget my lost balance.
    But off late my plan has been changed without even giving me a notice about it. And the validity of that plan is not yet over. Because of all the problems i have had I’m planning to port to airtel. Please tell me if it is a good idea to port.Or if anything can be done Please let me know.

    The MNP charges are Rs. 19/- only.
    Your services will not be blocked even for 1 sec. It’s just you have to change the SIM card upon receiving the confirmation or your old SIM stopped working.

      Hello Anand Singh,

      This is for your information.
      To port any mobile number, the donor operator (in your case, Airtel) has to release the mobile number so that the new mobile operator (in your case, Idea) will activate their services with old mobile number. You will have to be a customer with Donor for more than 90 days for them to release the mobile number.
      So, check with Airtel, whether you have any pending bills (even un-billed)? Do you got your fancy mobile number for free (if any)? ask them whether they received any porting request?

      Let us know, if the above has not helped you.

      Hello Anil Verma,

      Although MNP seems a simple process, it involves lot of complications and again different from every mobile operator. Check these below:-

      Have you submitted all the required documents to Idea cellular? Have you got the new SIM card from Idea cellular?
      If you are a postpaid customer, do you have any pending bills needs to pay to Aircel or even un-billed amount?
      Still not found a solution, talk to that Idea cellular officer / executive to get the status of your MNP or call their customer care.

      For further help, visit MNP Forum.

    Dear team,

      Hello Amit,

      If your mobile number belongs to Mumbai and now in Pune, there will be no roaming charges applicable as both cities are in Maharastra state.
