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.

    Hello Kasi,

    “Per Port Transaction Charge” defined by TRAI is up to Rs. 19/-. However, Idea may not charge this as a complimentary. Check with sales executive.

    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.
    4) Mumbai – Idea: Mr. Milind Manjrekar, Ph- 9702012888

    Hello KJHKJH,

    As per Idea, You can dial 12345 from your Idea connection when roaming using Idea network.
    Else visit their web-portal and use contact page.

    Hi TELECOMDIARY,
    I am a idea karnataka prepaid customer but i am on roaming since last 7 months and i am not able to connect to any customer care number(121, 12345, 198 etc). Only number getting connected is 9844012345 which is paid and puts on hold for long.
    i have experienced many irrelevant deductions and want to discuss them or else i’ll switch to another operator. Please give me a contact number which is toll free and can connect on roaming
