When is HLR mobile better than MNP?

HLR and MNP are two different kinds of databases. MNP stands for Mobile Number Portability and HLR stands for Home Location Register. The HLR databases hold information on mobile phone status in terms of network, roaming, validity of the number and whether or not it has been ported from another network. The MNP databases hold information purely on which network a phone is subscribed to.
