Man I paid 450rs for 3gb through the app as in chennai there is no broadband internet at home due to the cyclone and work was really suffering. I will check with Airtel. Last time I checked via email they said no offers... 5gb for an extra 100rs is too good. How much is your base plan? My base plan is 399 for 1Gb data, 80 mins roaming, 300 mins local and 90 mins std.

Default Re: Mobile Number Portability: Will you switch operators?

Just ported my Vodafone Prepaid to BSNL Prepaid. They said it will take about 6 days. I'm already using a BSNL Postpaid as my Primary number. Now I know a lot of you will say that the Primary and Secondary numbers should be from different networks. That's precisely the reason why I took a Vodafone Prepaid. But now I'm finding Vodafone service has deteriorated. Besides Vodafone only allows you to divert calls to Idea, Airtel and other private operators.
So what made me change?
1. I give my secondary number for all official calls. My BSNL Postpaid is only for family and close friends.
2. I will now be able to divert the secondary number to the primary free (I have to select my Primary number as the mobile number for free calls. BSNL allows one mobile and 1 landline free).
3. Incoming on the secondary number becomes free on roaming.
4. BSNL prepaid plans are better than others (really cheap).
5. As a result of Point 2, I have the option of carrying only 1 phone when going out at night or riding (cycle or motorcycle). Convenient while driving too. I can use a simple wired handsfree instead of a bluetooth one capable of being paired to 2 phones.
6. There are a few other BSNL prepaid in the family and I can club them together in a CUG plan in future (BSNL CUG plans are really good). I can't include my Primary number as my wife's number and mine are under the old Jodi Plan where I pay rental and other fixed charges for only 1 phone. I can choose any plan so it work out cheap.

Disadvantages: Only one I can think of is; If there is weak or no network both numbers will not work.

Is number portability possible on landlines? I have a MTNL landline that I want to transfer to a new location but would prefer going for a wireless landline like airtel to avoid getting wiring done.

MNP ("Mobile" Number Portability) is only for Mobile Numbers and such service is not available for Landline numbers.

Procedure is same. Visit any Airtel outlet with id, address proof and photo, and they will do the rest. Generate mnp code yourself or have the sim with you when you visit Airtel, and they will generate the code from sim.
