How Mobile Number Portability Works in India

Mobile Number Portability (MNP) enables users to retain their existing mobile phone number even if they opt to switch for another network service provider.

Below is the process to be followed:-

* Send an SMS: PORTMobile Number to 1900 (eg. PORT 9123456899)

* You will get an SMS immediately with a 8 digit alpha-numeric porting code

* Submit the code to your preferred operator along with necessary paper documents (Note that the unique porting code expires after 24 hours)

* Once you are done with the documentations with your new operator, you will be successfully ported to the new network within a maximum of 4 working days.

* You are done.

It costs you a maximum of Rs. 19 to change your operator which sounds pretty reasonable. However any existing balance with the old operator won’t be carried forward to the new operator, spend them before applying for mobile number portability.

you have ported to different service provider, you can not change the operator for the next 90 days. The whole process of switching from one operator to another should not take more than 4 days and your number will be dead for about 2 hours between 10PM to 5AM.

Google working on a secret project named 'caffeine'

A recent news making its round in the blogosphere is, that Google is currently working on a secret project code named 'caffeine'. Well what exactly is this 'caffeine' project? Its basically a next-generation architecture for Google's web search. Caffeine focuses on increasing speed of its web search along with more accurate relevancy to topics searched.

Look-wise, the new search engine doesn’t appear much different, but its developers hope that the technology they have used will noticeably index new web content more faster and efficiently. Google engineers are said to have invited web developers to test the new search engine, and give feedbacks.

If you are interested to give feedback on the differences between Google's current search results and the new system, this is how you do it.

Do a search at and look on the search results page for a link at the bottom of the page that says "Dissatisfied? Help us improve." Click on that link, type your feedback in the text box and then include the word caffeine somewhere in the text box.

There is no doubt that Google is relentlessly working to push the search quality forward. Way to go Google....

The Web is Live again - Real Time Search

Google the god of online search has something missing, it search results may not be real time. If you are searching for something very recent or live a typical Google search could lead you to a material which is months or years old.

The web is alive with real-time information, live updates. So why search a stale archive? Well we have news for you... Collecta is a website, infact it is a unique search engine that allows you to view results in real-time on the web. Collecta makes sure that you don’t received old, outdated results and only shows you what’s happening at that very moment.

Collecta monitors the update streams of various news websites, popular blogs and social media sites etc, so it can show you results as they happen when they happen.

Try it for yourself, I tried. I twittered an article and it was instantly reflected in the live search on Collecta.

Searche results from Collecta are saved in tabs so if you have one search open and want to look for something else, you won’t lose your original search until you manually close the tab out. For each tab there are also a few search options. You can choose whether or not to show stories (blog posts, articles), comments (on blog posts), updates (Twitter, Jaiku, Identica) or photos (Flickr) in your search results.

I definitely do feel like it’s a better alternative to Twitter Search and I have already been using it on a regular basis. Its a must check out website tool. Try it and share your comments below..
