Porting your MTN line is quite easy and the process can be completed within 15 to 20 minutes.

There are certain things you ought to know before porting your MTN SIM to other networks.

They are as follows;

  • Make sure you use up Airtime and data bundles on your current MTN line if not, they would be forfeited when you activate the portability process.
  • You may also withdraw funds from your MTN line to avoid being forfeited as well.
  • If you’re the type that saves contacts directly on your SIM, make sure you have backed them up on your device, Google account or other relevant platforms.
  • Make sure you have not ported your line in the last 45 days if you have… you will have to wait till it completes the 45 days grace before trying again.
