With the roll out of ‘Switch to Idea’ campaign, IDEA Cellular has affirmed that it is ready to enable Mobile Number Portability (MNP) on its network. Post the announcement of MNP launch on November 25th (i.e. today) from Haryana circle, by the Government, Idea is trying to make mobile consumers aware of the upcoming mobile portability service, through its latest campaign.
The new advertisement from Idea which broke on TV recently, shows Idea’s Brand Ambassador, Abhishek Bachchan proposing a new idea to unhappy mobile users to switch to a network that offers better services, better products & tariffs, and better network, through the message – ‘No Idea, Get Idea’.

The first circle where MNP is slated to be launched on November 25th is Haryana, where Idea will allow mobile subscribers to join its network, soon after the launch.

We have made substantial investment in network, technology, processes etc. to allow mobile subscribers to switch network and move to Idea, post MNP.
