Mobile Number Portability from Vodafone

July 14, 2014  •  166 comments

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.
    • 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 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
    • 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 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.
    • There will be about 2-4 hours service disruption during the porting process, mostly during night only.
    • Replace your current Vodafone SIM card with new SIM card provided  by your new Mobile operator.

      Hello Anuj,

      You can stop this process by calling both operators (Airtel & Vodafone) immediately.

    hi
    last month I submitted documents to move to vodafone postpaid from idea postpaid. 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 -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
    Thanks

      Hello Vikas,

      If there are no dues, your port out request should not be rejected by Idea on this reason.

    Dear Telecomdiary,
    I recently applied for MNP from Reliance CDMA to Vodafone GSM (both prepaid). My first request was rejected on the very first day of applying. The message said I have entered a wrong UPC, which clearly wasn’t the case.

    The Vodafone executive suggested I resubmit the form after two days, which I did.

    It has been 10 days since. No SMS or any updates. Vodafone executives say reapply with new UPC.

    Now should I reapply with the new UPC? I don’t see any hope in the process. It is a great mental torture for customers.
    Thanks – DJ

    I am a Vodafone customer for the last 8 years. My post paid GSM number from Mumbai Circle is 9820303390. The service of Vodafone has become horrible.they fleece customers. I now stay in Karjat which falls under Maharashtra and Goa circle. The signal strength of Vodafone is very weak. I want to Port my number to Docomo. I sent several SMS messages to 1900 Vodafone/Docomo.I get stock reply that my message is invalid. Please help me to port my number to Docomo,whose sigal strength is OK.Thanks

      Dear Dr. Venugopalan,

      Mumbai & Maharastra / Goa are different telecom circles and Inter-circle portability is not possible, as of now.

      Hello Shrikar,

      After succesful porting to other operator, Vodafone consider you as closed customer.
      If you have paid any bill in excess, they will send you the check for that amount after the porting.

    Hi there,
    I travel a lot as I’m a Nature Photographer. I’mwworking on Uttrakhand areas from last 6 years now. I’ve to visit Uttrakhand 2-3 times in a year so I bought Uttrakhand local number as Roaming Free in India is only a Topic from past few years.
    I’d Idea number then ported to Airtel Uttrakhand. Now I’m in Mumbai back home & everyday I get several calls from Airtel Uttrakhand for silly offers. I tried to sending DND – 1909 but message failed every time. Airtel Mumbai denies to help saying that you’re not our customer but Uttrakhand circle customer.
    Now, how do I get rid of these annoying daily calls? It gets into brains when I’m driving or in a meeting with clients or editing pictures etc…
    Please help..

      Hello Yogesh,

      All your Vodafone balance/s will be limited to Vodafone only and you will lose then once ported to Idea.
      So, you your balances while with Vodafone. Read more MNP FAQ’s.
