Vodafone MNP.  The process of porting Vodafone 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.

  2. Get UPC (Unique Porting Code)

    • Send SMS in below format to obtain UPC from Vodafone:
      • PORT xxxxxxxxxx to 1900. Replace X’s with your 10-digit Vodafone number.
    • If you are from Jammu & Kashmir and a pre-paid subscriber, call 1900 to get the UPC.
    • Vodafone 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 Vodafone, if you are a post-paid subscriber

    • Note: You can cancel MNP request only within 24 hours from submitting the CAF & Porting Form. Read Vodafone MNP FAQ’s.
  4. Activation of your ported Mobile number

    • If your porting request from Vodafone 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.

    I am using Vodafone network….& I was told by someone that when we send port message, we get a call from Vodafone(or current network) for offering better plans…is it TRUE that they offer discounted plans to whosoever is porting from their network..

      Hello Sunpreet,

      It depends & differs from Operator to operator on customer retaining policy. It is not necessary and mandatory.
      However, good luck if you got better offers from your mobile operator.

      Hello Amy,

      If ownership of the mobile number is individual and is on your name, you can go for the Mobile Number Portability.
      If the ownership is with your employer or ownership type is Corporate, your HR team can initiate the MNP Process.
