    Highlights of the Story

    1. SMS “PORT” space “YourMobileNumber” to 1900
    2. Save your UPC
    3. Take your ID proofs and last Bill to the nearest Airtel Store

    Moved to a new location, have poor network coverage where you live, or experienced a poor time with Vodafone, and want to switch to Airtel? You must be looking for a way out of this mess by one of two possible options- either by purchasing a new Airtel phone number or porting your current one to Airtel.

    As buying a new mobile number may be redundant, time-consuming, or a hassle, this article by Cashify brings you the only tutorial on porting your VodafoneIdea connection to Airtel that you will ever need.

    Please note that to Port your number to any other brand, it is necessary that your bills are paid, and that you were in possession of your VodafoneIdea Sim Card for over 90 days.

    Step 1: Use Mobile Number Portability (MNP)

    To port Vodafone to Airtel, access the MNP Service via a USSD code. Open your messaging app, and start writing an SMS to 1900. 

    Type “PORT” space “Your Mobile Number” and hit send.

    Do remember to type the word PORT in ALL CAPS.

    Step 2: Save your Unique Porting Code (UPC)

    Your device will receive an SMS with your UPC. Once you have that, proceed to the nearest Airtel Store to continue the process.

    Step 3: Visiting the Airtel Store

    Please carry the following documents required by your new Network Service Provider when you visit the nearest store for porting: 

    • Address proof photocopy
    • Passport Size Photograph
    • ID proof photocopy (Driving License / Passport / PAN Card etc.)
    • Photocopy of last paid Vodafone bill (if you are a post-paid user)

    There will be a Rs. 19/- porting charge along with any other plan charges that you choose when you sign up.

    At the store, ask the customer care executives to assist you with the porting process. They will aid you in filling up a CAF form (Customer Agreement Form) after acquiring your UPC that had reached your phone earlier. 

    You will receive a new Airtel Sim Card which will be activated later.

    Step 4: Activating your new Airtel Sim Card

    Once your documents are verified within 4 to 7 business or working days (till which your Vodafone number will still be active), you will receive a final SMS with a verification code on your VodafoneIdea Sim Card.

    Save that code as you will need it shortly. Your final step to port Vodafone to Airtel will be to replace your Vodafone Sim with your new Airtel Sim and restart your device. 

    When your phone has booted, call up 59059 and verify the code to activate your Airtel Mobile Connection right away!
