The Service Centre Representative will then issue you with an MTN SIM Card which will be activated with your number from your old network once the port request is approved by your old network. Remember to take along a valid Identity Card (Driver’s License, Voter’s ID, Passport, NHIS Card or National Identification Card).

Additionally, subscribers are advised to move all their contacts onto their handsets (MTN Service Centre Representatives will assist you). On porting to MTN, you will enjoy an initial free Phone Backup service so your phone contacts can be stored safely.
