What are the Documents Required for Mobile Number Portability

The majority of the people in India use prepaid numbers. Of course, the prepaid plans are much affordable and the number can be changed or even bought easily. However, one drawback that the prepaid connections come with is running out of balance. Maybe you are on a very important call and all of a sudden the call gets disconnected because you ran out of balance. It may also happen that the recharge packs change suddenly and your favorite monthly recharge is discontinued. How do you find a solution to such a problem? The easiest option is to go for a postpaid connection. When we consider getting a postpaid connection, you must take a look at the Airtel postpaid connection and the amazing plans that come with a host of benefits.
