Got a mobile phone? Then you must read this.

Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is the ability for users to switch to a new mobile service provider, while retaining their existing mobile number. MNP is a government directive and regulatory requirement. There will be a Limited Live Trial from 29 August, to early October 2008. MNP will officially be launched in Malaysia from early October 2008 onwards.

Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said "Service providers are allowed to charge up to RM25 each time subscribers change their mobile phone service provider. This will give the users choice and freedom to choose their service providers without the inconvenience of having to change their numbers."

So in the very soon future, while holding a 012-prefix number, you might be a celcom/digi/umobile user but not necessary to be maxis/hotlink. The same goes to other prefixes.
