How to switch to Vi™ offline?
To port your number offline through a store, you need to submit a few docs as proof of an MNP request. To port your number to a new service provider, submit your docs for address proof and ID proof and a few passport-sized photocopies.
To request for MNP, you need to first generate a UPC (Unique Porting Code)
SMS PORT SPACE <ten-digit mobile number> to 1900
You’ll then receive your UPC through SMS on your existing mobile number
Go to the nearest Vi™ store, fill the CAF (Customer Acquisition Form) and porting form of the operator and mention your UPC
You’ll then receive your new Vi™ SIM
Following that, you’ll receive an acknowledgement message from new service provider confirming your port request
Porting to another service provider within the same circle will take 3 working days and porting to another service circle will take 5 days
In case of service areas like J&K, Assam and NE areas, porting will take 15 days
If you switch today, your current service provider connection will be deactivated, and your new connection will be activated in the midnight the next day
Conditions that must be met to receive a UPC
