There is still some time in the final release of the Reliance Jio in the country but it has already become a sensation in the Indian tech world. The Reliance Jio preview offer has received both huge demand and appreciation from the users. The preview offer provided unlimited 4G internet, VoLTE calls and SMSes for a period of 90 days. Its impact can be imagined from the fact that other major tech giants like Airtel and Vodafone had to cut down their tariffs up to 67% to retain their consumer base.
But all that said, not everyone can get a Reliance Jio SIM currently and there is still some time left for its commercial rollout. If you’re hoping that you can just barge in a Reliance store and ask for a Reliance Jio SIM, then you’re wrong. It’s probably this exclusivity of Jio which makes it even more alluring. But you need not worry as we’re here to help you out in procuring this amazing yet hard to get Reliance Jio SIM. Here are few ways through which you can get a Reliance Jio SIM:
1. Purchase a Lyf Phone
This is probably one of the easiest ways to get a Reliance Jio SIM. Purchase any new Lyf phone with VoLTE and along with it, comes a Reliance Jio SIM. So just go to any Reliance Digital Xpress Mini Store or a Reliance Digital Store and purchase a Lyf-brand smartphone. You can get a Lyf smartphone for as low as Rs.3,000. And trust us it’s worth the shot. You can just turn your Lyf device into a WiFi hotspot and avail unlimited 4G internet on your other devices for a period of 90 days or the time of commercial release whichever is earlier. Considering the current broadband plans and their speed, this seems a pretty fair deal. However, if you don’t wish to purchase a Lyf smartphone, then there are other ways too.
2. Get A New High-End Samsung Smartphone
If you are not willing to purchase the cheap Lyf smartphones, then you’ve the alternative to buy the high-end Samsung smartphones. Reliance has collaborated with Samsung to provide the Jio preview offer with many high-end Samsung devices. Reports suggests that Reliance is even in talks with Apple for the same. The current list of Samsung devices with this offer are the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, A5 2015, Galaxy A7 2015, Galaxy A8, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 5 Duos, and the Galaxy Note Edge.
After purchasing any of these Samsung devices, all you have to do is to install the MyJio app on your device and tap on ‘Get Jio SIM’. A bar code will be generated, which you have to take to a Reliance Digital or Reliance Digital Xpress Mini Store along with your device, a passport sized photograph and a valid ID proof. The staffs would do the rest. You can get the same benefits with this Reliance Jio and you can even use this with other devices.
3. Befriend A Reliance Employee
This is an uncoventional, yet quite an effective way to get hold of a Reliance Jio SIM. Reliance is allowing its employees to refer a certain number of their friends and family to get the Jio SIMs which can be used with any devices. So just befriend anyone from Reliance either through hook or crook and you can have your own Jio SIM. Though it may seem a bit lowly thing to do, but I won’t mind buttering anyone up for getting such an amazing deal. Many Reliance employees have reported to have getting flooded with such requests. So good luck finding your ‘true’ buddy.
4. JioFi Router For HP Customers
Reliance Jio is not only restricted to mobile devices but also focussing on home users, but this is only restricted to the HP customers. Reliance is offering Jio for the new HP customers for both desktops and laptops. But this comes at a cost of Rs. 2,899 and the same three months unlimited superfast internet. Even this seems to be a pretty good deal considering the current available alternatives.
At this cost of Rs. 2,899, Reliance and HP are offering the JioFi which is a compact portable WiFi router which creates a WiFi zone. Now you can carry your own WiFi zone wherever you go. It takes three hours to charge and can be used for six hours on full charge. It can connect a slew of 31 devices at a time. So have a party, call up your friends and still you won’t have these many devices to connect to your JioFi.
All you need to do is to register this form and take out the printout of your referral code. Just take this referral code to a Reliance Digital or Digital Xpress Mini store along with your passport sized photograph and a valid ID proof and you’ll have your own JioFi device with 3 months unlimited 4G internet. Hurry because this offer is only valid until August 15.
These are all we could think of, however you’re free to tell us any other way through which one can get a Reliance Jio SIM. Till then, stay tuned to MobiPicker for all the latest news and updates from the tech world.
