Mobile Number Portability

  • Starting September 30, 2021

    Mobile number portability, or MNP, as a global practice enables a mobile phone customer to keep their number even when they switch networks or change their subscription from postpaid to prepaid and vice versa, free of charge.

    Porting involves two types, internal and external.
    Internal porting means moving only within your mother network.
    External porting means bringing your number from your mother network to an outside network or vice versa. The network where you're coming from is called the originating network, while the network where you’ll transfer to becomes the receiving network.

    NTC said customers of a telco can keep their mobile numbers when switching networks.
    As stated by law, you can be able to port to telco from another network when you meet the following criteria:
    Have an active mobile number
    Your mobile number shouldn’t be part of a bundled service or product
    There must be no pending request for the transfer of ownership of your mobile subscription
    Your mobile number must not have other accounts under your subscription
    No porting request in the last 60 days
    No fraudulent activity
    No remaining balances from your previous postpaid bill or financial obligations
    Your mobile number must not be linked to a device that is still locked.
    Your mobile number must not be under any NTC, court or law prohibition.

    At the very least, you should be able to submit these basic requirements:
    A valid unique subscriber code (USC)
    A government-issued ID
    Proof of ownership of your mobile number

  • Too late, no one bothers about their Cell numbers now a days other than to top-up their SIM cards with load. Most of our contact information are done now over messaging apps (FB messenger, viber, etc...), imbis na kunin mo yung actual number nya, the people is asking for their facebook account instead and add them. Cell number, meh, that thing is only good for 2FA.

  • sir my hindi po gumanaga ang txt USC to 5050 ng globe, plano ko sana mg port from globe to smart kaso yung hotline nila na 211 wala rin customer service representative, automated voice lang sumasagot.
  • as of now wala ka makaka usap sa customer care ng globe...

    advise ng globe at smart na mag book appoinment sa website nila then sa store nila iprocess USC mo...
    UPDATE: kung magpa book ka sa Globe e bukas ka na lang magpa book October 1, wala na slt for this month...

    kung Dito naman port sa Globe, text DITO USC to 5050 kasi ilan pa lang store ng DITO

    for Gomo...
    Hey, GOMO Fam! We wish to inform you that Mobile Number Portability (MNP) for GOMO will be available by October 2021 due to unavoidable technical issues. We're sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
    Don't worry, we're working hard to make the service available at the soonest time possible.

  • My nakausap na po ako na nag work sa globe pro sabi niya wala pa dw sa kanina my alam regarding sa USC.
  • pag ganitong meron ng MNP, nakakatempt lumipat ng ibang network. from smart to dito. lol!

    main reason kaya di ko maiwan yung smart number ko dahil yun na ang known contact number ko for more than 10yrs. sya din kasi may pinakamatinong signal sa amin.... DATI. nakakawalang gana naman kasi yung mga load at promos ng both smart and globe, mga nagsasayang ng pera style. yung P100, pang 7-15 days lang ang peg.

    pag lumipat ako sa dito, pede ko masulit yung P100 promo for 30days. madalas e malakas pa signal nia, di na ako tatayo or lalabas para lang sa signal. hahaha! pero kelangan pa nila ayusin yung problema sa call system nia, may mga problema pa kasi dun lalo na pag dito-other network calls.

    ok rin sana lumipat sa gomo, pero same as globe, sinumpa ang signal nila sa bahay namin. pang-pocket wifi lang talaga sya samin. lol

    Sakin naman baliktad. Matagal ko na gusto mag smart kasi nahihinaan ako sa signal ng globe (ewan ko ba bakit eh nasa manila naman ako). Tapos yung non expiry data din ng GOMO / Smart. Once or twice lang naman ako umalis ng bahay, at magastos yung mag pa load. Sobrang stable ng Converge samin kaya pati Globe at Home Prepaid ko, di ko na nagagamit lool.

    ok rin sana lumipat sa gomo, pero same as globe

    May nabasa nga ako dito na di daw maganda maganda GOMO lalo na pag nag text daw yung bank (kahit anong services siguro) sa inyo kasi kailangan ng regular load para mag reply. Which is may point nga naman.

    Bwisit kasi, bakit wala kasing Prepaid Esim!? Naka iPhone kasi ako kaya di ko magamit parehas Globe at GOMO.

    Mapipilitan pa tuloy ako pumunta ng Globe Store para sa USC.
  • tanong ko lang, pag lumipat ba ng network, yung 7-digit phone number lang ang maililipat o kasama pati yung code? halimbawa 0999-1234567 o 1234567 lang at yung code ng lilipatang telco ang gagamitin?
  • This is good news!

    My CP number is more than 20yrs old na. Yung SIM nya yung malalaki pa, so I have to buy an old style cellphone that support the original SIM size. Smartphone doesn't support Standard Size SIM anymore.

    Paano ba process nito?

  • @emilbook
    Mobile number portability is for changing network pero mareretain yung existing number mo. If sim upgrade lang, you can go to sa store nila then you can upgrade your sim. My experience sa Smart when I upgraded to 4G sim back then, mabilis lang yung process.

    @rudy. ayos pala yan, di na malilito at di na rin kailangan sabihan ang ibang tao na lumipat ka ng network

    My CP number is more than 20yrs old na. Yung SIM nya yung malalaki pa, so I have to buy an old style cellphone that support the original SIM size. Smartphone doesn't support Standard Size SIM anymore.

    Paano ba process nito?
    @emilbook kung globe at tm, kailangan mo pa pumunta sa globe business center, need mo magpakita ng 2 id's.free lang. kung smart at tnt, free din magupgrade sa smart center pero meron din nabibiling upgrade sim ng smart at tnt na tig-10 pesos sa mga tindahan na ikaw na ang maguupgrade.

  • ^ Puro all networks na ang mga call and text promos ngayon ng globe at smart so that will not be an issue anymore. Kung meron pa ding existing old promos, malamang paphase out na.
  • SIM upgrade lang pala kelangan!

    Salamat sa lahat ng nag suggest :)
  • sana naman makalipat na ng gomo. wfh naman at gamit na gamit ung gomo. ung initial load ko 9months tinagal kasi minsan lang lumalabas.
  • tumawag ako sa smart, need daw matapos yung 2 year lock in period before ma grant yung request for transfer.

    1 year to go. need ko lang naman yung number kasi madaling memorize.
