Hi All, Really it's a good news. Mobile number portability is going to prove great tool for consumers who were not satisfied with their service providers but had to stick with them due to their cell number. In Delhi, MTS is giving 25% discounts, Airtel has declared 10% discount in Rajasthan, Vodaphone is focusing on existing customers, BSNL is giving first recharge of Rs100 free to prepaid customer and also not taking the initial Rs19 fee. Reliance has other exciting plans. Companies are trying to keep existing customers with them and attracting new customers. People have choices now. They can choose from various options available at their wish.

Hello Kanchan, I think there is a possibility of improving the services because they want to hold back their customers. For me, I don't have any plan to change the service provider. I am using airtel, I felt it costly sometimes but their net work is good and reliable.

there are a lot of service providers with very bad connectivity will loose their clientele to the better service providers. this will also ensure that service providers with deep pocket will only survive.

Hi kanchan, MNP sounds good. However I haven't tried it yet. Maybe in the future. I am not really satisfied with my other network mobile service. It has this bad habit of taking away the prepaid load I have just purchased electronically. I feel cheated if after three days it is gone. Now, why do they treat electronic loads like food items that has expiry dates? The goverment should look into this matter seriously. What we paid for should not be taken away unless it brings/causes harm to the consumer. The number of items purchased should be there until they are all used up regardless of the duration. If I take one year to send fifteen text messages then so be it. Isn't it cheating or stealing from the consumers? I lash back at this mobile network provider by not purchasing a prepaid load for very long periods of time. There are some networks to choose from in the first place. What do you think?
