Transfer your Mobile Number

transfer your mobile number (1)


Many a times, we feel that the our current service provider is charging too much or that other service provider is having better offers.

The CITC in Saudi Arabia gives customer the right to his number from one service provider let’s say from STC to Mobily without changing the number. This process is called Porting.
It can be done very easily by going to the office of your service provider with the following:
1. Valid SIM on your iqama
2. Your original Iqama
3. Paid all existing bill
Once you go the sales office, he will take your information and then ask you to sign a paper. The process will be initiated online. You will have specify which plan you are shifting to. You will be given a new SIM.
The process will usually take a day. You will know the transfer is done when your old sim will stop working. Then you can starting using your new sim from your new service provider.
Sometimes, the previous service provider will not approve the transfer due to non-payment. Sometimes, even if the bill is payed, they still give bogus reason to delay the transfer. In such case, just re-apply for transfer again in one or two days. If you have no dues, the previous service provider has to release you as per CITC regulations.
