Follow our below guidelines and learn how it’s done with ease.
How to port from Cell C to MTN
Since you’re moving MTN we will focus more on them in these steps. You need to buy an MTN sim first.
Register (RICA) the new sim you bought. Make sure you with your ID and proof of residence.
Once you’re done with the two above steps, don’t insert your new MTN sim yet.
It’s time to make use of your Cell C sim, use it to send this SMS ‘PORTME#(10-digit MTN SIM number)’ to 083 767 8287. It will look like something like this; ‘PORTME#0000000000’.
A confirmation SMS will be sent to your Cell C number that your request is being processed.
You can insert your new MTN sim the next day.
Note: This is a very simple process, and you won’t spend anything apart from the sim card you bought.
