    I have requested for a PORT IN request to MTNL, Mumbai on 25Feb11, but it is rejected by the Vodafone since then. MTNL engineers are trying repeatedly, but request is always rejected. Whenever I send SMS to PORT my mobile number, immediately I receive the porting code, but I receive a rejection note as follows.
    Vodafone (24/3):
    Hello! Your Porting Request VMxxxxxx dated 24Mar11 has been rejected due to The Porting Code does not match the Doner allocated Porting Code for this number. Request you to call our customer care at 111 or walk in to our Stores for further action.
    MM-1900 (4/3):
    (G)Your Port In request for Mobile Number xxxxxxxxxx has been rejected by your service provider due to UPC mismatch. For any queries please call 1800111503 (DELHI) or 1800221503 (MUMBAI) . Thank You – MTNL.
    From the month long process I understand that there is some lacuna in the system and the customer service of MTNL is unable to assist and solve the problems. Home some body from the MTNL take up this issue and solve the problems facing by many in Mumbai.

    @MTNL BSNL
    I am really moved by your reply (hope, firstonnet, too will respond). In fact for the last 3-4 months I have been knocking the doors, appreciably even friends from TT too tried, for getting a 128k 3G compatible SIM against my two BSNL numbers. At the local level I was offered the USIM but with a new number. I persist, because as you have rightly pointed out that there could be millions of subscribers facing the same fate. Actually no one bothers and take pains, either stay put or find out alternate ways (now one more option, MNP !!) ! We have attained advancement in all the field and telecom is no exception, as such the explanation given to me (that too from a PRO)was not acceptable to me “TECHNICAL REASPMS”= Therefore I would prefer a logical end THIIS – This is the interest of all including BSNL/MTNML too !

    As for MTNL I have 1/2 doz. sims, few received as compliments in your earlier schemes. Till I was in Chembur everything went fine, but after shifting to Panvel border (automatic and intermitant roaming in cellone) sims go into roaming and as children daily go to Vashi/Khoperkhairane/Goregon etc. and each time I find very difficult to establish a stable connection with them. Connectivity problem still exist and one can not exactly pin point the area, time etc. It would be nice on your part to generalize the issue rather than concentrating on individuals, but definitely taking cue from individual complainants !

    Agree with you. They activated VAS on my number and deducted Rs.40 while it was switched off and I’ve activated DND. When I contacted on 198 they said it was activated by me and cut the line. When I tried again to contact they blocked 198 for me.

Kindly bear with us. MTNL already done the agreement with Railtel to acquire land for cell sites in station areas. So after a month you will find better,enhanced 2G & 3G network signals even in railway station, compartment & surrounding area without break.

And second roaming charges are high, third, recharge coupons and bill payment facility are not available out side Bombay circle.Already MTNL has less number of GSM/CDMA subscriber as compared to other private operator.

    No one operator is covered Mumbai city 100% so if you are getting poor or nil network coverage in your area/surrounding area that means you dont assume that in Mumbai entire city MTNL network is poor or nil. Please check UMTs network in your area, it would be 100%, wait & watch entire Navi Mumbai will be covered till Jan, 11 end. MTNL planning, RF team working hard to close such type of network issues, for more details pls send your poor network coverage area’s list to 9869347070, dont make a call. They will call you if they require anything more info. Please telecom talk readers send sms to this number if you have any issue related to mtnl Mumbai network coverage if it’s related to GSM or UMTS.

    Thanks to all of you who send their grievances to this number related to GSM/UMTS MTNL network, FYI please only 3 complaints are received, to verify the complaints we send our JTO, SDE to that location. out of 3 places we already radiated the one site on dated 17th of Jan 11. i.e. Railtel Panvel.
    Please keep sending sms to this number we will keep you updated only on Telecom talk. In next couple of days you will experience amazing, seamless network coverage of MTNL in entire Mumbai gsm circle. Require your support to find out more black spots in our network condition, we already searching but if you hep us then it will be soon clarify by our team.

    Once MNP is implemented both PSUs (BSNL and MTNL) will be pay the price for keeping presence in 20+2 basis. This is TRUE because, if I am correct intra-circle portability is not yet allowed. Their loss will be gains for private players in all the circles. In Delhi and Mumbai those port-out of MTNL will have to choose only private players and not BSNL. Also those BSNL subscribers from 20 circles will have to port-into any one of the private operators. In any way those private operators who have pan-india presence (22 circles) will receive subscribers from BSNL and MTNL thus eliminating the chances mutual port-in and port-out between these PSUs !

    MTNL is just useless. Bad 3G experience & bad indoor coverage at my place. Network vanishes someday since morning to night. Sanchaar haat people don’t know about latest plans. On asking about any plan, they say that plans are listed there, just see that, but latest plans are not mentioned there.

    MTNL Mumbai going to offer toll free number for MNP. They are set up more than 150cellsites in last quarter. They are still working to add more 50 cellsites. Currently mtnl subscribers are not facing call drop, network busy on net. Lowest call rates for ISD, no hidden charges, no blackout days. Its really superb operator who have active, positive escalation matrix. I m a VF subscriber & im getting poor indoor nw since 2years & i will like to port MTNL for lowest call rates, no unwanted telemarketing operators calls, sms, for 3G services etc.

    Sushil Modi :
    @Arif Mtnl is 3rd largest gsm operator in mumbai, network is perfect in mumbai except navi mumbai load shedding area and online recharge facility is there so any one can recharge mtnl Number not even out of mumbai anywhere in the world.
    Except roaming charges your all blame are not correct, wait and watch. Vodafone user also says high roaming charges, very high GPRS cost, no full freedom on GPRS with vodafone over all each and every operator has advantage and disadvantage and ppl will select MTNL for no false vas activation, cheap mobile internet
    t/3G, lower call charges, highest talk time. I guess your thinking is just based one one small area of navi mumbai not total Mumbai

    I am a MTNL subscriber from Last 3 yrs and I have seen that their network is getting strong day by day.

    Abhijit :
    many friends and relatives are going to leave mtnl because of roaming charges while in Maharashtra bsnl network. So most are saying either they will port to airtel or docomo as no roaming between mumbai and maharashtra circle.

    Y it is true but now MTNL should reduce this roming call rates but they have nice 3G/ GPRS roaming rates

    Arif :
    As per my experience people will leave MTNL instead of joining MTNL, it is because of bad network of MTNL. And second roaming charges are high, third, recharge coupons and bill payment facility are not available out side Bombay circle.
    Already MTNL has less number of GSM/CDMA subscriber as compared to other private operator.

    Since MTNL is only operating at Mumbai and Delhi hence they have less number of subscribers

    Webly :
    5 days to go for the deadline of MNP implementation.

    Nice wrote!!! But it’s not happens only within MTNL but its for all Indian mobile, wireless, FWT operators so requesting you all telecom readers port on your own risk, compare to other pvt operators MTNL Mumbai is better among all operators of Mumbai in all the needs like number privacy, Truely DND, no cc calls to convert your prepaid to postpaid, or for any VAS activation please press 1,2,3…. etc. This is not offered by MTNL to disturb their VIP, loyal subscribers at anytime. Best support form the officers if you have any issue. They always try to solve subscribers problem & earn more revenue.

    Ya its true. They have really nice cc. They have solved my GPRS problem in few minutes only. And one more plus point is they do not publish false ads.

    Truly free CC and truly careless executives in fact bunch of supreme quality of IDIOTS!
    >>>The company said that with MTNL one can get Truly toll-free Customer Care

    As long as your MTNL is working fine u will be very happy but if you run into some problem then u r at ur own! Dead and knocking every door to solve ur problem but unfortunately no one is available to hear ur complaint(s)! ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK! ;)

    If we change from one operator to another using MNP what will happen to prepaid balance in the old operator?

    MTNL Mumbai going to offer toll free number for MNP. They are set up more than 150cellsites in last quarter. They are still working to add more 50 cellsites. Currently mtnl subscribers are not facing call drop, network busy on net. Lowest call rates for ISD, no hidden charges, no blackout days. Its really superb operator who have active, positive escalation matrix. I m a VF subscriber & im getting poor indoor nw since 2years & i will like to port MTNL for lowest call rates, no unwanted telemarketing operators calls, sms, for 3G services etc.

    many friends and relatives are going to leave mtnl because of roaming charges while in Maharashtra bsnl network. So most are saying either they will port to airtel or docomo as no roaming between mumbai and maharashtra circle.

    @Arif Mtnl is 3rd largest gsm operator in mumbai, network is perfect in mumbai except navi mumbai load shedding area and online recharge facility is there so any one can recharge mtnl Number not even out of mumbai anywhere in the world.
    Except roaming charges your all blame are not correct, wait and watch. Vodafone user also says high roaming charges, very high GPRS cost, no full freedom on GPRS with vodafone over all each and every operator has advantage and disadvantage and ppl will select MTNL for no false vas activation, cheap mobile internet
    t/3G, lower call charges, highest talk time. I guess your thinking is just based one one small area of navi mumbai not total Mumbai

    As per my experience people will leave MTNL instead of joining MTNL, it is because of bad network of MTNL. And second roaming charges are high, third, recharge coupons and bill payment facility are not available out side Bombay circle.
    Already MTNL has less number of GSM/CDMA subscriber as compared to other private operator.
