Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is a special facility where a mobile subscribers can retain the original mobile number despite changing the service provider or telecom operator.

With the allocation of LRN to Pan India 4G spectrum holder Reliance Jio (RJIL) for all 22 telecom circles, now any GSM or CDMA (2G or 3G) mobile service user can port-out from his/her operator to opt out 4G mobile services of Reliance JIO without changing the mobile number.

Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio Infocomm (RJIL) is rapidly deploying its infrastructure across 20 cities in various circles to launch its 4G LTE service for mobile customers over LTE enabled smart-phones as well as Only data customer via 4G dongles.

As earlier we shared on TelecomTalk, DoT  has also allocated 22 million numbers (2.2 crore numbers) in 70 series and Network Code (MCC and MNC) for all 22 circles to Reliance Jio Infocomm to launch its 4G services.

    Nobody will port to Reliance jio as there will be no voice calling because no cheap device is available in market like gsm and cdma. So only high data users who seek for super speed will opt for Jio and for that they don’t need to port, they can easily take new connection.

    Wow……. after Porting we should go to these 20 cities to make a call……………… ????
    First develop the network. Go for ICR with existing Players…..for Voice…
    Then one can think……..
    Also Jio has 2300 MHZ frequency so it is impossible to give Voice call to the existing Customer as in India most Gsm customer handset are in 900 or 1800 Mhz…..
    Then Jio has to adopt GSM frequency for voice call as Voice over LTE is still not mature and in market no handset available at affordable price…..
    So it has many time to be mature to Launch MNP on JIO.

    I (and many other people) wouldn’t consider MNP to reliance jio as the coverage is going to suck. I would rather stick to my airtel 3g and keep reliance jio as a alternative to use data services.
