Might be easier to just port out to some other operator.

well i have a company owned outlet in my local market so i just go there. sim replacement is quite simple. i just recently got mine replaced without aadhaar. filled up a form, copy of id. got sim for free. was active in around 2 hours.

and about ordering sim online to swap with sms ?
Well, I have tried ordering a 4G sim to swap my old Airtel sim multiple times (from their website and the Airtel app), never received anything. Not sure if it was because the delivery address was not in a city.

You could get 4G sim from any Airtel store, you can swap by sending the SMS, no need to give any ID docs.

i do not think they give away blank sims these days. the sim swap scam is too widespread. they ask for id, fill up a form, and process the sim swap from their system.

though i have heard that third party retailers are still doing it.

i don't want a new number, just the 4g kit to swap it with my old sim. So wanted to know if id proof or worse aadhar verification would be required.

I will visit airtel store and update.
