Now, even iPhone users can enjoy Reliance Jio 4G Preview Offer till the end of December 2016. But the catch is that you can only use Jio 4G SIM on iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, 6 Plus and iPhone SE. Only these iPhone models are 4G compatible and support VoLTE (Voice over LTE). But if you already own of these, it shouldn’t be hard to get Reliance Jio SIM up and running on your iPhone. Follow these simple steps to quickly get the Jio 4G SIM –
1. Download the App – MyJio
The first that you need to do is to download the MyJio app from App store. If you own a device other than iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, 6 Plus and iPhone SE, we suggest you to stop right away. Unfortunately, you cannot use Jio 4G SIM on other models of iPhone.
2. The Most Important Part of the Process – Generating a Barcode
To control blatant misuse of free Jio 4G SIMs, Reliance has now made it mandatory to generate the barcode. This measure basically translates into “One Jio SIM for one device”. The barcode that you will generate will be unique and depends directly on the device IMEI number. To generate the barcode, follow these steps –
a). Download the latest version of MyJio App from the Google Play store for Android smartphone and from App Store for iPhone. If you have the app already installed, update it. Open the app.
b). From the list of about 10 apps that you see, open only the MyJio app.
c). Select State and City. Follow the on-screen instructions and enter your name and phone number.
d). You should now get an OTP. Once you submit this OTP, you will be able to generate the barcode.
3. Visit Reliance Jio SIM Outlet
Once you have the barcode, visit a Jio SIM outlet as soon as possible. The barcode usually has a limited validity, after which it expires. So be sure to visit the store with the generated barcode and get your Jio SIM at the earliest.
4. Wait Patiently For Network Signals
With demand greatly exceeding supply by staggering numbers, Reliance is having a tough time activating all the connection requests. So the activation process is bound to take time. Once you see signal bars on your device, dial 1977 to complete tele-verification.
