Find the Best Mobile Price in India with MySmartPrice

Find the best mobile price in India with MysmartpriceThe mobile handset market in India continues to be one of the fastest growing segments. Unfortunately buying a good mobile phone in India is not an easy task as prices of mobile phones fall by as much as 20-30% in a month and at any point of time the price of a particular model varies widely from each other and from the MRP present on the package. Most of us use Google to get idea about the real market price but the resultant websites tend to have outdated information in my experience.

Few days back I had written a post about how to find and compare prices of books across online book stores in India. I was really happy to see that, one of the websites mentioned in that post, has now extended their search functionality to search for mobile phone prices as well. Having a reference of prices across several online stores will help me to bargain better even if I decide to buy the mobile in some offline store as well.

How To Change Your Mobile Phone Operator by using Mobile Number Portability (MNP)

Change your Mobille Phone Operator through MNPPrime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday announced the pan-India rollout of mobile number portability (MNP), which will allow mobile subscribers, both GSM and CDMA, to change their service providers, within a telecom circle, while retaining their numbers.

The portability facility, that was first launched in the Indian state of Haryana in November last year on a pilot basis, would be available to both postpaid and prepaid customers and subscribers of GSM as well as CDMA service. However, consumers will have to remain with the new operator for three months before moving on.

The other restriction is that the portability facility will be available only within a given licensed service area. In other words, subscribers cannot take their Delhi number to an operator in Mumbai. They can only change their operator within Delhi.

Switching from one network to another while keeping the same number is pretty straightforward: All customers have to do is send an SMS with their mobile number to 1900 (SMS PORT <mobile number> 1900) to get their unique porting code. After this, the process is essentially the same as getting a new connection.

The cost of porting a number to a new operator is Rs19, with the maximum porting time capped at 7 working days by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), except in Jammu and Kashmir, Assam and North East service areas, where it will be 15 working days. Read More
