Issues telcos create when trying to port away number

My experience is that airtel and vodafone find all possible ways to delay the porting of a number away from them and keep coming up with lame excuses. I dont know why TRAI is not stricter on this.

Can members of the circle share there experiences and perhaps LocalCircles can escalate this issue.

In latest a friend was told there is signature mismatch between your 2010 and 2020 signature and hence porting cannot be processed. more

But my experience tells a different story. Only last week I got my phone ported from Vodafone to BSNL hassle free. I just sent my request to 1900 from the phone to be ported and immediately I got the required Port Out Code No. by return SMS. Next day I went to the local Bsnl office who issued me a new SIM Card after obtaining the required application along with a photograph & a copy of the aadhar card. Activation of the SIM, however, took 3 days, which is normal. more
