The mobile revolution has taken a speed after the entry of Reliance Jio into the foray. Last Thursday during an AGM of Reliance Industries, its Chairman Mukesh Ambani announced the launch of this much-hyped telecom company. The company has officially started working from Monday and the enthusiasm of the potential customers of the company is only seeing is believing.
When it was announced that Reliance Jio’s SIM cards will be available for free at Reliance stores; there were long queues to grab them. Previously such events were only possible when a new iPhone was on sale. The reason behind this rush is the zero calling rates and extremely cheap data rates Reliance Jio is offering to its customers. In that very AGM Mukesh Ambani also announced that these rates are available throughout this year and new rate packages will be announced at the start of 2017. But still, people are ready to purchase the Reliance Jio SIM whenever they get a chance.
We are already aware that after getting the special offer code from the Reliance Jio’s app MyJio one has to provide its ID and address proof along with his or her passport size photograph and then he or she can own the Reliance Jio SIM card. But till now many are unaware about how to activate the SIM to enjoy the services.
How to Activate Reliance Jio 4G SIM to Enjoy Its Services
In order to activate the Reliance Jio 4G SIM all you need to do is to follow the steps given below.
Step #1. The Reliance Jio SIM holder is expected to get a confirmation message on his phone from Jio asking him for a ‘Tele-verification’.
Step #2. To do the Tele-verification for both the Voice and Data services of Reliance Jio, one has to dial 1977 from his or her Jio Number.
Step #3. The identity of the user can be confirmed only by providing the last 4 digits of the submitted document as ID proof. Be it a Voter ID or an Adhar Card.
Note: Once this verification is successfully done the SIM will be activated in 1 to 2 hours, although in many cases it has taken even 4 to 5 hours to get activated.
Step #4. Even if your SIM is not activated you can still request to activate your data service and you will start getting it once the SIM is activated. For that, you need to call a TOLL FREE number from the other mobile number mentioned in SIM form. The toll-free number is 1800-890-1977.
Note: Once the data service is activated and once you enter the newly purchased Jio mobile number, you will get 2GB free 4G data initially and afterwards, it will automatically turn into unlimited 4G plan.
Please also note that Reliance Jio is still facing some issues while calling but data services are working absolutely fine. So enjoy your free 4G data on your new Reliance Jio mobile number.
