What Is MNP And How To Change Network Without Losing Your Mobile Number?

MNP – Mobile number portability – has made life easier. But, why do you need it?

Sometimes you get mad at your network connection, most likely because its package plans and call rates are too high, or you are not getting the signals properly at your home or office location. You want to change your network, but you want to stay with your number because all your friends have your current mobile number. The solution is easier than you think. Do the MNP.

Before biometric-based SIM verification was in practice, you would need to call the respective cellular operator’s helpline to change your network. However, after biometric, things have changed.
