Now, Call STD Mobile Numbers Without Adding '0' or '+91' Prefix:-

A major roadblock to implementing full mobile
number portability (MNP) across the country has
been removed. Several telecom operators have
begun simplifying the process of dialling STD
mobile numbers in the country. Until now, calling
mobile numbers registered and situated outside
one's home network would require adding '0' or
'+91' as a prefix. That is not true any longer.
Customers of most telecom operators can now call
any mobile number in the country without adding
any prefix. We tested this with various numbers on
Airtel, Vodafone and MTNL's networks and can
confirm that the prefix is no longer necessary.
There's a small chance that some operators
haven't yet implemented the simplified dialling
pattern and their numbers may still require a
prefix. But that is likely to change before July,
when the full MNP deadline comes into effect.
