To port from one sim company to another has become a popular thing. You may find yourself in a situation where you are not getting your desired services from your network provider and then decide to port to another network. Here is a detailed guideline on how to port from Vodacom to MTN in South Africa.
Purchase an MTN SIM Card (You can buy it at any retail stores, or MTN Stores).
Ensure you RICA your SIM Card first but do not insert it into your phone yet.
From the Vodacom Sim card, SMS ‘PORTME#( 10-digit MTN SIM number)’ – The 10-digit MTN SIM number is found on the SIM Pack, thus your SMS should look as such: ’PORTME#0000000000’ and Send the text to 083 767 8287.
Wait for the confirmation SMS, informing you of the request being processed.
Now that you have received confirmation, wait a day before you can insert your new MTN SIM.
Insert the card the following day and select ‘New Number’ to activate your new SIM if prompted.
