Azerbaijan, Baku, August 1 / Trend H. Valiyev /
Azerbaijani mobile operator - "Bakcell" company launched a Mobile Number Portability service (MNP), the company told Trend on Thursday.
According to the company, at present, subscribers of other operators may contact Bakcell customer service offices, by submitting a Sim-card and identity card.
MNP service in Bakcell's network is free. The migration term from one network to another will take six days.
SIM-card must be replaced while migrating to other operators' networks.
However, this service is not available for SIM-cards used in Data-cards.
According to the rules, the service will be available again after three months.
One of the project's important components is the subscriber's migration to another operator without an outstanding bill. Otherwise, this service will not be rendered.
Introducing MNP services will allow mobile users to keep their phone numbers while changing operator.
Number portability means full migration of a subscriber phone number with the operator's prefix (050, 051, 055, 070 and 077).
