Your Number Belongs to you,
not to the operator

What is MNP?

Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is a mobile number porting service (fully retaining the number while changing the operator)

Now you can port your number to lifecell from any mobile operator in Ukraine, while fully retaining your number (including the code). Meaning, if your number starts with 067, 097, 066, 050 or other codes, it will remain the same.

Your number is half of your life.
It has:

  • bank and discount cards;
  • social media accounts;
  • access to websites and mobile applications;
  • contacts with friends, relatives, or clients.

Your mobile number is your personal information.
With the advent of MNP in Ukraine, your number will belong to you, not to the operators.

The application procedure is not yet optimal. We at lifecell believe that it needs to be simplified, because in some countries you can simply change the operator through an SMS request.

You can also help us with this process.

File a complaint to let regulators know that you are requesting the fullest possible exercise of your right to choose a mobile operator and retain your number.
