Reliance Jio 4G SIM has been selling like hot cakes, thanks to its disruptive Welcome Offer. The company is offering free unlimited access of high-speed 4G data and calls, till December 31st. The new offer is available for all the eligible devices with Jio SIM bought from Reliance Digital or Xpress Mini Store. However, due to huge demand, it’s not easy to get a new Jio 4G SIM and get it activated. Selecting the right Reliance Jio 4G SIM [Orange or Blue] might help a quick activation.
It has not been a smooth sailing for the Reliance Jio 4G so far. The company is facing multiple problems, including major operators reportedly refusing to provide sufficient points of interconnection (PoIs), resulting in severe calls failure. Reliance has claimed that as many as 120 million calls to the top three telecom operators [Vodafone, Idea Cellular, and Bharti Airtel] failed everyday in September.
Vodafone and Idea Cellular have been asked by Jio Infocomm to provide sufficient points of interconnection (PoIs) as directed by the regulator Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai). As on October 8, Jio SIM users experienced 87 percent average call on Vodafone and 67 percent on Idea network for NLD service.
While the company had gathered over 16 million users under the Jio Welcome Offer, several Reliance Jio 4G SIM owners have complained that the company failed to activate the SIM even three to four weeks after registration. However, selecting the right Jio 4G SIM might lead to quick activation. The Jio 4G SIM comes in two colors – Orange and Blue.
The Orange Jio 4G SIM was initially released for Reliance Jio employees during the testing period. Later on, it was made available at Reliance Digital and Xpress Mini stores, bundled with Lyf phone and JioFi router. The Orange 4G SIM comes with a mobile number and company’s SIM code, which takes just a few hours for activation.
The Blue Jio 4G SIM was launched to meet the excessive demand for the Jio SIM. It comes without a phone number, which is offered after user verification. The Blue Jio 4G SIM has been receiving complaints of late activation.
