MNP - Mobile Number Portability for Vodafone subscribers

As a Vodafone subscriber, now you can change from Vodafone to other mobile operator without changing your current mobile number.

If you are not a Vodafone subscriber, choose your Mobile Operator for Number Porting.
If you are Corporate Mobile Subscriber, read Mobile Number Portability for Corporates.

Follow the below simple 3-Step MNP Process to switch your Vodafone number to other operator, using Mobile Number Porting services.


Unique Porting Code
You need to obtain UPC (Unique Porting Code) to authenticate your ownership to other mobile operator.
Aircel-MNP PORT XXXXXXXX to 1909. (Replace X’s with your 10-digit mobile number.)
Vodafone will send you the UPC by SMS in return.
MNP Application
Call executive / customer care services of your desired Mobile operator, fill CAF (Customer Application Form) and Porting Form or visit their nearest offices. (Vodafone’s major offices in India) Submit the required documents as well; Photo ID, Address proof, if you are a post-paid customer submit your latest mobile bill & last paid bill receipt also. Once above process is completed, you will be given a New SIM card from your new mobile operator.
Network Change
You will receive an acknowledgement SMS from +1901 on / after 4 days for your porting request. Within 3 days from then, you will receive confirmation SMS from +1901 of your successful porting request. After 12pm midnight, mobile services from Vodafone will be deactivated and you will have to use the New SIM obtained from another Mobile Operator keeping your current mobile number.

    i am basically idea user…
    From that i have converted to airtel and now i am in vodafone…
    But now i want to go back to idea through mnp…

    But the shopkeeper said that normal mnp card doesn’t work to come back to idea…
    He also told me that you have to purchase some “win-back” card or something like that…
    And for that i have to visit the idea office…

    And i called the idea costomer care there they told me that there is nothing like that card…

    What to do…???
    Please help…

    • Telecom Diary said on

      Hello Himanshu,

      Send SMS PORT XXXXXXXXXX to 1900 (replace xx’s with your mobile number), you will receive Unique Porting Code, keep that with you.
      Call idea customer care to arrange a executive visit to your place or visit any Idea showroom, submit the MNP application with code.
      That’s it.

  15. Vikram said on


    Here’s my question. I am currently using a vodafone postpaid connection and want to change the connection using MNP but here’s the catch. I want to switch to a pre-paid connection. Does the procedure remain the same? or are there any changes?

    Also, my bill would be due by the 19th of this month. Now if i switch, can i pay the new provider directly instead of clearing the bills off with vodafone first?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Telecom Diary said on

      Hello Vikram,

      You can switch to pre-paid connection to a new operator by MNP from your existing operator’s post-paid connection.

      MNP will be accepted only if all the dues are paid to current operator only.

    Hello there, I am Naresh. I am currently on Vodafone and want to migrate to Idea due to some signal problems in my area where I live. I am a postpaid customer and I paid a refundable deposit of INR 500. If I port my number to Idea will I get my deposit transferred as-well?? Please reply as I am pissed off with Vodafone signal.

    • Telecom Diary said on

      Hello Naresh,

      Once you are port to other telecom operator, your current operator will settle all dues and they will send you a check, if any positive balance in your postpaid account.

  34. Hi,

    Previously I ported my number from Vodafone to Idea. As i found Network problem in idea i lodged a request to port my number from Idea to Airtel and today i got a Airtel sim but now i just want to get back to Vodafone.

  40. Kapil Semwal said on

    I am changing my 5 years old Vodafone number due to the worst network & service & false commitments from the Vodafone Executives.
    I am using Vodafone Mumbai, I traveled to Haridwar, Uttarakhand for my photography tour. I found my 3G working fine but the GSM at it’s worst. I was totally unable to receive or make any calls from Vodafone. I called up 198, I spoke to a female executive who assistance was unsatisfying so I requested her to transfer my call to the floor supervisor but she kept on giving clarifications later I had to insist & my call got transferred to the floor supervisor & something that unexpected from the supervisor,”Sorry Sir, I cannot help you because you are not my customer, you are Mumbai customer so please call Mumbai Vodafone for assistance”.
    OMG!!!Vodafone trains their Supervisors like this?
    I am complaining for network from past 4 years as I get only 1 or 2 bar on my phone network tower & they commit that the engineer will visit your house soon but till date nothing happens & then you often get the SMS, Dear Sir/Madame, your complain blah blah blah has been resolved. But, how the hell do they know that my problem is resolved (what if not?)

    So, I have decided to do PORTING from Vodafone to Idea (maybe) yet not sure.

  58. Vikash Gupta said on

    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

  59. DJ said on

    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

  60. DJ said on

    from Gujarat. I reapplied today with new code. Had to submit all documents again. Got retention call which I politely declined.

    • TelecomDiary said on

      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..
