#5 Make Valid Recharge Plan
I have seen many BSNL SIM card holder not recharged their number and still using their phone as secondary number and time of Porting they try to send Port SMS but it will not sent because you do’t have recharge pack.
After Jio,airtel & Vi BSNL also working on recharge pack their is no lifetime validity plan any more.
At the time of Porting make sure you have Valid Recharge plan who gives validity and SMS sending facility.
#6 Do Small Recharge of Main Balance
Many BSNL SIM card holder doing small recharge pack for porting only and still not able to send Porting SMS to 1900.
The main reason of that BSNL use main balance to send SMS not recharge pack SMS.
