Reliance Jio‘s 4G services are yet to be officially launched, but its preview offer is already talk of town. The Ambani-owned telecom network is available to consumers across the country in the form of Jio Preview that offers 90 days of free data and voice calls (across all networks and even on roaming).
As the company extends its preview offer to more smartphone companies, people are standing in long queues outside Reliance Digital store. Well the good news is the exclusive deal for Reliance Digital’s LYF smartphone buyers, has now expanded to over 10 smartphone companies.
How to get a free Jio SIM card
One needs to first head over to the Google Play Store to download the MyJio app on their compatible 4G smartphone. In the app, tap on the ‘Get Jio SIM’ option, and you will be asked to fill in details like name, alternate mobile number, and location to verify if the offer is available for you. This process will generate a unique code that needs be shown when getting the SIM card.
Take the code along with valid address proof and one passport-sized photo to the closest Reliance Digital or Reliance Digital Xpress Mini store. Submit the documents to get your hands on a free SIM card, and once accepted you will receive an SMS on your alternate mobile number. The last step involves inserting the Jio SIM card in your smartphone and dialing on 1977 to activate it.
