3. The transfer
This is the last step of the porting process. It takes between 1 and 4 weeks to port a phone number to smrtPhone. There is no downtime as the number remains active on your current provider till it is not ported to smrtPhone. When your porting request is approved, we get a specific porting date and time from our telecom partner. And, at this specific scheduled time, your number is switched over to smrtPhone.
Do not cancel your previous provider's account till the porting is completed. Once, we receive the above mentioned docs, we will submit a number porting case with both your and our operators & take this forward.
smrtPhone does not perceives any fees for the porting process, however, the charging for the phone numbers will begin as soon as the numbers are transferred to your smrtPhone account
