Mobile Number Portability lunches in India

India today ushered in Mobile Number Portability that will allow cellphone users to switch operators without changing numbers, with Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal launching the service in Haryana.

The rest of India would get to use MNP from January 20, next year.
How to use:
Customers will have to send an SMS from their phone to 1900
1- They will get a unique porting code as SMS from the existing service provider.
2- The customer can then make an application in the prescribed form mentioning the code to the selected new service provider for porting of number.
3- A period of 4 days has been prescribed for completion of porting (transfer) of the mobile number to the network of the new service provider.
Criteria For Applying For MNP:
MNP facility shall be available only within a given licensed service area. So if you are moving to another city and want to retain your mobile number, MNP is not the answer. Mobile users may only apply for MNP if they want to switch networks in the same area where their existing mobile number is registered.
A subscriber is eligible to make a porting request only after 90 days of the date of activation of his mobile connection. If a number is already ported once, the number can again be ported only after 90 days from the date of the previous porting. TRAI has explained that this minimum period is required so as to enable the service provider to recover the customer acquisition cost.
SMS the operator to which you want to switch and ask for your unique porting code, which is an alphanumeric code allocated upon request. Operators have been directed to set up a mechanism (a shortcode) to receive the SMSs and respond with the unique porting code. Subscribers will also have to give in writing their request to the operator to which they are switching and fill up a customer acquisition form, which the operator will verify.
After verifying the porting code, identity and address of the user, the recipient operator (which the subscriber is joining) has to forward details to the mobile number portability service provider within 24 hours.The operator has to pay a ‘per port transaction’ charge for each request forwarded by it to the MNP provider. They would have to examine the request carefully as there is no provision for refund of porting charges from the MNP provider.
Users will have to pay a porting charge to the operator to which you are switching. The price has not been fixed yet and could be anywhere between Rs. 20 to Rs. 200.
A subscriber may withdraw his porting request within 24 hours of its submission. However, the porting charges are not refundable.

How to take backup of Registry

There are three methods of backing up the registry in Windows 2003. You can backup/restore the entire Registry using the Windows Backup utility; use a little tool called reg.exe from the command line. These are explained in more detail below.
From the Start menu, navigate to Programs > Accessories > System Tools and open Backup – this will start the Backup and Restore Wizard or go straight to the Backup and Restore utility (depending on your previously chosen settings).

Browse for a location to which the backup file should be placed (ideally removable storage or another partition) and click Start Backup. A new dialog box will appear showing the status of the backup procedure. When backup is complete, press OK and close.
To restore a backup file, go to the Restore and Manage Media tab and select Tools > Catalog a backup file. Browse to the location of the backup file and select it. Choose what you want to restore (in this case it is the entire System State) and press the Start Restore button.
Importing Registry:
When you export a section of the registry, it is saved as a .reg file which, when executed, will add its values back to the registry. This is commonly used when a software vendor needs a client to enable “debug mode”, for example.
To export a registry file, select the desired key from the left pane in regedit.exe, right click and choose Export. Select where you want the .reg file to be saved, and press Save. Once the file has been exported, you can edit it using Notepad.exe or any text editor.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Accessibility\MouseKeys]
To import a reg file, simply double click it to bring up the dialog and press Yes. The information will then be added to the registry.
Using Command Prompt
Using reg.exe you can backup and restore portions of the registry with a few simple commands. This tool will allow you to backup one subtree at a time - while the system is running.
For the purpose of this explanation I will demonstrate the uses of REG SAVE and REG RESTORE.
REG save
Use the REG save command to save root keys for future restoration. The syntax for this command is:
reg save
In my example, using the above syntax I have saved the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_CLASSES_CONFIG and HKEY_CLASSES_USER subtrees, as seen below.

The Registry file will be saved in C:\Regbackup.
REG restore
Using the reg restore command you can restore keys you previously saved using the reg save command. Using my example, if I wanted to restore HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT I would run the following command at the command prompt:
Reg restore hkcr c:\regbackup\hkcr
