How to obtain RIO code for your mobile (works only in France)

Warning
This method only work if you have a french mobile subscription.

If you want to know the RIO code (Relevé d'Identité Opérateur) to change your mobile subscription, there is an universal code to compose to get your limit commitment date and the RIO code.

You have to compose : 3179 

This call is free and possible even if your credit is used up. A voicemail box will tell you your RIO code and your mobile engagement deadline (if you are subject to it). These two pieces of information will be sent to you by SMS, so don't panic if you haven't managed to write everything down when the voice mailbox dictated it to you.

The RIO code is necessary to change the operator (for example, if you want to switch from Orange to Free Mobile or vice versa, from SFR to Bouygues, ...), because it is this number that will be used to trigger the procedure number portability. You will be asked for the RIO code when you register with your new operator.

Your new operator will take care of the termination procedures with your old operator, so you just have to choose the exact day when you want to port your number to the new operator (within two months ).
