Note: Customer’s current service provider will issue a bill for the usage on their Postpaid account even though when they have moved to a new service provider.

Who can enjoy Number Portability services?

All mobile or fixed line customers who have an active mobile or fixed line service can enjoy Number Portability service. These mobile or fixed lines must be registered under the customers’ IC held on file by their current service provider.

No, you will not be able to receive any incoming SMS/calls/data from your previous service provider once it has been deactivated.
What happens to my existing **VAS/Quota Top Ups/allocated quota/Voicemail/text messages? **Value Added Service
All VAS/Quota Top Ups/allocated quota/Voicemail/text messages from your previous service provider will be void. However, you will be able to select new plan and VAS with Progresif as you wish.
Can I still be contacted by my previous service provider once I have successfully ported out?
Your former service provider is only allowed to contact you to recover any outstanding payments, should there be any.
Can I still use their current service provider’s service during the wait/transition time?
You will still be able to use their existing/previous service provider’s service during the wait/transition time and you will be liable to pay the period of usage of the service to the previous service provider. Once the service provider receives an SMS confirmation from you to validate your Porting request, you will not be able to use the service.
What if my SMS confirmation to 39000 fails?
The porting request will not be passed to the previous service provider for approval, and the process status will be “waiting user authorisation”. You will receive an SMS notification “Your porting request has failed. Please contact your new operator for further details.”
Will I need to make the request to cancel my existing mobile/fixed line service directly with the existing service provider, before switching to another provider?
No, that is not necessary as when you sign your Porting request form with Progresif, you are automatically authorising us to instruct the former service provider to disconnect the service when port takes place.
What if my service does not work after the port?
Customers would need to contact 177 or visit your nearest Progresif Store for help.
