It is been quite some time now when Reliance first announced about its JIO SIM cards. They have starting rolling out different offers to sell the sim in Indian market but still it not available commercially for common man. It is too early to say anything about the customer experience, are they going to like it or not. But with the help of this post you will know how to get JIO sim for free of cost which is available for exclusive people only and enjoy free unlimited high-speed internet.
Commercial release of Jio SIM will no doubt affect speeds, network availability, and could lead to call drops as well – whereas due to high competition in Indian market, user can get better network service from other leading competitors. That's all hypothetical though - but for now, we are really enjoying using our Jio account, and would recommend that you try and get one too.
Till now we have figured out 4 best way to get the JIO sim card. The network works on 4G, and uses VoLTE for calls, but the VoLTE technology is not available on old phones. Reliance has developed an app called JioJoin by which they offers works around of VoIP calling, in case your phone doesn't support VoLTE, so it isn't a very big issue. You just need 4G compatible phone, and you can get started with Jio, here's what you need to do to get a Reliance Jio sim:
1) Best way is to find friends who are working in Reliance
if you know someone who works with Reliance then nothing like it. Just get closer to him/her before you ask for referral. The Reliance Company allows employees to refer a certain number of people to get Jio SIMs that can be used in your phone. Most Reliance employees are probably used to getting friend requests on Facebook from people that just want a SIM, so if you don’t find one then try other methods instead.
2) Purchase brand new Reliance Lyf Mobile
Just walk into a Reliance Digital Store, ask for a new Lyf phone, and you're live on Reliance Jio. Lyf mobile phones are easily available in market and cheapest price is around 3000 Rs, which will come with JIO sim with a free validity of 3 months unlimited 4G internet. If you go for this option then I would like to tell you is you can convert this phone in a wifi hotspot to get ultimate speed on all your devices. You can connect 12 devices simultaneously. Moreover voice calling is also coming free with this JIO sim card. Here you can find Reliance Retail's Lyf range of phones
Industry watchers say that Jio, which has already onboarded over 15 lakh customers in the trial launch stage, may offer high-speed data at very low price or may bundle free voice calls to lure users in the world's second-largest smartphone market.
This also gives access to all of Jio's apps for three months, or until the commercial launch of Reliance Jio, whichever is later. But if you don't want to carry around an extra handset everywhere you go, there are more options.
3) Buy a high-end Samsung mobile
Purchase any of this phone Samsung Galaxy A5 2015, Galaxy A7 2015, Galaxy A8, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 5 Duos, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Galaxy S7, and the Galaxy S7 Edge. And just walk down to reliance digital store, by showing these mobile you can get a JIO sim. Then you need to install JIO app to run it. There is also talk of the offer being extended to iPhones in the near future but this has not been announced yet.
This method was earlier working on all 4G phones, but the company seems to be plugging the gaps now - however, the SIM you get can still be used on other phones. The SIM, and usage, are both free for now even using this method.
4) Switch to HP
Reliance is also targeting broadband users for Jio. For HP customers, Jio is offering three months of free 4G data, although you have to pay Rs. 2,899 for the wireless compact router.
The JioFi is a small Mi-Fi device that can create a Wi-Fi zone that up to 31 devices can connect to simultaneously; great for taking your phone, laptop, and tablet online all at once. It takes three hours to charge, and can be used to broadcast a signal for six hours on battery, so you can use it at home or on the go.
