How to port SIM to a different network?
If you are wondering “How to port SIM”, here are some steps that you need to follow:
- The foremost thing you need to do is to visit the Airtel website
- At this point, go to the Postpaid tab and click on it
- Now you will find Port to Airtel from the dropdown
- Now as you scroll down, you will find plans from which you can choose one
- As you choose a plan, you can also confirm the port-in request
- Provide your mobile number, address, landmark, and scheduled delivery slot
This is what you have to do online on the Airtel website. After this, you will be contacted over the phone by the executives from Airtel, who will confirm the date and time when they can pay you a visit to collect the required documents and deliver the absolutely free SIM card to you.
While you get the SIM card from the executive, you can generate the Unique Port-in Code and share the same with the executive. Your request would then be logged into the system of the company. If you are transferring the number within the same state which the number was native of, it will take only 24 hours at the max; and if it is transferred inter-state, it may take up to four days. Also, your new connection will get activated during the night, which means your connection will not be out of service at any point of the day.
In case you want to know the status of your porting request, you can log in to Airtel Thanks App using your current mobile number and Unique Port-in Code. In the App, you can track the process live and receive updates on your porting status.
