If you are a Vodafone Prepaid customer who plans to switch to Vodafone Postpaid, your remaining balance will be credited to your Postpaid number in advance. Moreover, the validity of your recharge pack will be discontinued. Once you send the porting request, a UPC code is generated and sent to your existing mobile number.
