    I wonder why some people are still complaining regarding Jio' pricing & also frowning against the withdrawal of unlimited night (2 AM - 5 AM). Those who have recharged with ₹499/- & above got 100GB Flat for 90 days & those stuck with ₹303/- Summer Surprise 1GB/day can always recharge with Booster-pack if needed. I think they are the one who never complained while 1GB 3G data used to cost ₹251/- for 28 days. How can we be so GREEDY? Why can't we be rational?

    Ref.: Moto E3 Power, a FlipKart purchase Recovery-menu [to Wipe Cache Partition/Hard reset ...etc.] Pls. note, If you use Volume-down+Power button combo to enter Recovery-menu [as per Motorola Device Help/User Guide], a Chinese language Pop up will appear which is a "Testing-menu" and Not Recovery-menu. to Exit this Chinese Pop up, you need to remove the battery and start the device normally. However, Volumeup+Power button combo gets you to Recovery-menu best wishes

    Right now I am using Galaxy C9 PRO and my wife is using A9 PRO. Both are very good. Jio has CA using Band 3 + Band 5 (1800MHz and 850MHz) in most places and in some recent sites its Band 3 + Band 40 (1800MHz & 2300MHz). A9 PRO supports them and I have experienced great speeds. Though Samsung doesn't show LTE-A or LTE+ in signal, we can confirm them via dialing *#0011# on native dialer. Right now I am using C9 pro, because it is having SRVCC facility, which is NOT available in A9 PRO. My main number is in Airtel. Airtel has started testing VoLTE. SRVCC allows calls to fall from VoLTE to 3G without DROPPING it, when we are on call while moving from 4G coverage to 3G or 2G coverage. Only SD625, 626, 630, 653 (used in C9 pro), 835 currently supports SRVCC (not sure about lower end ones). Even SD821 (used in OP3T and LG G6) or 652 (used in A9 PRO) doesn't support SRVCC. But A9 pro supports many LTE bands, including upcoming 700MHz one on Band 28 and 900MHz on Band 8, both are not supported in C9 PRO (at least not till now, may be enabled later via update). Further A9 PRO has better battery life (5000mAh vs 4000mAh of C9 pro) and very very cheaper now. Advantage of both phones is, you can use Airtel for DATA on 3G and still get incoming calls on JIO. It is great feature to use, where Jio data speed is too low, but you want to get calls on both numbers. This feature is supported in very few phones, mostly Samsung. Go for any of them, you will be happy, imho.

    Even Supreme Court is saying different things on different days. So eKYC for mobile connection is MUST, but aadhaar is optional. So they are trying to defend by saying that taking mobile connection is OPTIONAL? WTF?? Mobile connection, even mobile data has become more like a necessity than a LUXURY, even for middle class person today (esp when Govt themselves flooding play store with apps day by day). Actually making aadhaar compulsary with PAN / IT filing is a master stroke to avoid black money rotation. Say for example, somebody is operating bank account without giving PAN for years, with some proof like DL / Voters ID, after linking PAN and aadhaar, that bank a/c is just a simple search command away from Govt side. I will be happy, if they announced aadhaar is MANDATORY FOR ALL, incl Diplomats in India. But they are NOT doing that. Thats why I am suspicious. I wonder how many politicians have NOT taken aadhaar till date???

    Well, to be frank, I am NOT really happy with the Summer SURPRISE and am sure I will be in the minority now. I was planning to port out my secondary number + all of my corporate connections to Jio, except my main number. But we have to wait for minimum 4 months for the speed to come back to normal. I was very happy about Jio's digital revolution in India, where thugs like Airtel are trying their level best to milk their customers (even now if given chance) by forming a CARTEL to sell data as luxury plus killing the net neutrality and what not. I was eagerly waiting for the paid services by Jio. I was expecting new exclusive Postpaid plans, new JioLink plans and even the introduction of VoLTE feature phones. But what happened on 31st March night was tragedy, imho. Well, I can understand the need of the 15 day extension for Prime enrollment, due to last day server fails, crowds in RD stores, etc. Well, it is bad to know that even many Indians do something as simple as 99Rs recharge, on the LAST day of deadline. But for Rs303 recharge and get 4 more months (3 free + one more for that 303) of FREE usage like NHY offer? It is as good as unlimted data + calls + SMS for Rs100 per month. So we have to bear with the 4 more months of pathetic speeds + bad voice calls. Jio is becoming a heaven for freeloaders and NOT for real customers ready to pay for good services. Now let us look from ANOTHER ANGLE:- Asking Rs256 to Rs296 for 1GB of data is outrageous + UnLimited Greed for sure, but all for FREE at just Rs100 per month is nothing short of predatory right?? All I want is Jio forcing the AVoId Thugs to wake up from slumber, connect their towers with Fiber instead of relying on useless microwave backhaul for reliable connections, treat customers the way they deserve, etc. But what Jio doing now is "KILLING / BLEEDING THE COMPETITION", which is NOT at all good in long term for customers, imho. So our earlier assumption about the earlier HNY is an excuse for correcting / testing their network is NOT true at last. Jio is like a very big Giant THUG beating the hell out of the old-bad-tiny THUGs of AVoId group. Well, how can we sure the Giant will NOT beat us next? Decades ago, RIL has done the same in PVC business. Who knows, may be even "MONSOON OFFER" is on the pipeline, after the end of so called "SUMMER OFFER", if Jio finds Competition has still some breath left out. ------------------- I am not sure, how many people will agree with my views. I have started having doubt on Jio's real intentions now.

    For heavy user yes. But for most users, the daily use is variable. So a plan that gives carry-forward benefit is better than one where the unused portion get expired every day.

    Now its back to normal.. I mean more than NORMAL. Its now 32Mbps speed. So sure, they are rigorously testing their network to the limit. ALL IS WELL. Looks like they are just testing after how much data / how many days, they have to reset the server. Now Jio is carrying 16000TB per day (that is 4 times of Airtel + Vodafone + Idea combined usage), becoming the WORLD's largest network, even beating ChinaMobile. So this brings me a lot of hope, especially after STOPPING the free data usage in new year. After real commercial launch, this amount of load will NOT be there even if they give data at flat rate of Rs50 per GB. Dear JIO, I am waiting for the end of free data to all, to make a switch...

    Upon clearing my one abandoned drawer, I found following 1 piece ZTE CDMA modem for BSNL. I am sure it will not have any provisioning. Am also not sure how helpful it will be to get service. 1 Piece RELIANCE modem. 1 screen OK, Moto Razr Maxx. Main board has problem, not getting charged. 1 piece Samsung Epic phone, screen has problem , screen ON but touch pad not working. 1 piece Samsung Moment handset. Working well. 1 Piece modem dead Palm Treo handset. Please let me know if any thing is useful to any one. Else will scrap it.

    ^^^ Seems exactly like that. A very important observation. Even I got nowhere with AirHELL in the past, even after complaining to DoT. RCom and even Docomo though do pay heed to it.

    Good news for the customers whose operator has no 3g license in their circle. But what about the 3G tariff by the private players? Initially the tariffs may be sky high.If 3 biggies form an alliance to share the revenue.Hard times for the customer to escape their high tariffs.

    what is interesting is that Jio has kept the bench mark 149 ARPU level intact and increased the daily data limits. for all practical purposes, most people will not be able to consume full daily limit for entire validity, even if they manage for some days. psychologically, Indians would prefer to go for 149 (o its variation of long term ones) recharges instead of the 98 one, even if their requirements are more than satisfied by 2 GB monthly data. of course, thanks to whatsapp, a good amount of data gets used up just with the useless good morning/good night pictures/GIFs/Videos. JIO is using VOIP for voice so no extra charge of voice, as long as the call gets terminated within their own network. so they are trying to ensure just that by attracting as many person on board as possible. by giving the facility of queued recharges and bundling with cashbacks from various wallets, they are also ensuring that once a person is onboard, he/she remains with them for a long time. again, Jio will keep on coming out with offers and Indian psyche would induce people to keep queuing up recharges even though they may have a few queued up already. Mukesh bhai (or is it Mukesh Jr) has found a new way of perpetual contract carrier model on prepaid, without actually spelling it upfront. they have learnt from RIM mistakes. so in the end, it would be 149 APRU multiplied by number of users, not a small figure by any measure.

    Jio has already complicated things but here are some of the FAQs that may help. Personally I recommend not to recharge too many vouchers in advance. Is there a limit to the number of recharges which I can do? You can have a maximum of 25 recharges on your Jio number at any given point of time including add-ons, top-up, plan recharges, ISD/IR packs. However the maximum number of recharges of Rs. 398 or above Plans, during the offer period, can be upto 5 recharges only, per account. What will happen to the cash back vouchers (50*8) which I have received under Diwali Dhamaka / Triple cashback / Surprise cash back before 9th Jan'18? Can I still use those cashback vouchers and get an additional discount of Rs 50? Yes, you can utilize the Rs. 50 voucher (One Voucher at a time) to buy new recharges of amount greater than 300 and on 91 and above data add on plans via MyJio app. If I have recharged with multiple recharges of Rs. 398 and above plans, is there an end date by which I need to activate the queued|upcoming 398 or above plans to avail the Jio 100% cashback? 1. The maximum number of recharges of Rs. 398 or above plans, during the offer period, can be upto 5 recharges only per account 2. The cashback vouchers (in multiples of 8) will be credited immediately as soon as you recharge 3. The maximum validity of any 398 or above plans can be upto 31st October 2019. Hence recommend you to kindly activate any upcoming/queued 398 plan before 31st October 2019 to avail the full benefits and validity. If I have purchased multiple vouchers of Rs. 398 and above plans, is there an end date by which I need to redeem them for getting Jio 100% cashback? 1. The maximum number of vouchers purchased of Rs. 398 and above plans, during the offer period, is upto 5 vouchers only, on your Jio number at any given point of time 2. Kindly redeem the pending 398 and above plan vouchers (if any) before 31st October 2019 to avail the full benefits and validity 3. As soon as the 398 or above plan vouchers are redeemed, the cashback vouchers will be credited in the respective MyJio App which can be further be redeemed till 15th November 2019. Details from Terms & Conditions: https://www.jio.com/en-in/jio-surprise-cashback-terms-conditions Cashback Voucher of Rs. 50 Cash back will only be applicable for Rs. 398 or above recharges/vouchers purchased during offer period (26th Dec ’17 – 15th Jan ‘18) Cash back of Rs 400 will be given in form of 8 vouchers of Rs 50 each by Reliance Retail Ltd. & these vouchers can be redeemed, one at a time, against recharges of Rs 309 & above plans and against Rs 91 & above data add-ons. If a customer does a recharge of 149 then 50 Rs voucher cannot be redeemed for that transaction. Cash back (FOC Rs 50*8) vouchers will be given to MSISDN on which the 398 or above voucher is redeemed/ attached. 50 cashback voucher cannot be redeemed while recharging using own account balance. FOC cash back vouchers (50*8) are non-transferable. All vouchers will have validity till 31st Oct’19

    There is a big 'Price war' in telecom sector while trying to pull more customers. As far as 'Quality of service' is concerned, it needs more money to maintain it and cannot be achieved using handful of customers with 'High pricing' but can be achieved by increasing the number of users on board and the marketing heads of Airtel, Idea & Vodafone are well aware of it. As I said before, Mukesh Ambani is here to do business & not charity but by its liberal pricing policy has been successful in achieving targets (increasing its subscribers) in a very short period of time as compared to other operators in India. Every one is playing his own card whether Jio or AVOID to sustain their business so we cannot blame either of them but yes, we have our choices and can opt for the services best suited to us from the operator of our choice, reason why MNP is there. Yes, I agree that the choice is limited now but switching to any of these provides nationwide services too. Vodafone is a strong and reliable network in Mumbai now, but when I took the connection several years back it was "Orange" (later became Hutch & finally Vodafone and may become Idea after two years) and did not have much towers unlike "BPL" (the main operator in Mumbai at that time). It was people like me who kept writing about network issues to them and at least three new towers were installed as the outcome of my effort alone. I still have the confirmation letters from them regarding the installation of the towers in the areas against my complaints. I even forced reliance (CDMA) to erect one tower in my area. It wasn't easy switching operators as MNP was not present in those days and switching operator meant losing number. But today we are free to switch network if we are not satisfied instead of complaining and getting the things fixed. One thing should be clear in our mind that we cannot force any company to change its policy but can pressurise them to improve services. A customer rules - Companies are providers and we are the choosers these days.

    All these operators have some sort of capping on no of minutes used and on no of unique numbers called. I don't think such capping is there on Jio. Even though it should suffice normal users, they should highlight them. Vodafone T&C: Customers using more than 1000 minutes (local +STD) in any period of consecutive 7 days, will be charged at 30p per minute for rest of 7 days period (eg if a customer consumes 1000 mins on 2nd day),he would be charged for rest of the five days). Customers using more than 250 minutes (local+STD) in a day will be charged at 30 p per minute (local +STD), after consumption of 300 minutes for the rest of the day till midnight 0.00 hrs. Customers calling more than 300 unique numbers in any period of seven consecutive days will be charged at 30p per minute (local+STD) after 300 unique numbers, for the rest of validity of recharge. Idea T&C: Customers using more than 250 outgoing minutes (local+STD as per Unlimited Pack benefits) in a day will be charged at 1p/sec (local +STD), after consumption of 250 minutes for the rest of the day till midnight 0.00 hrs. Customers using more than 1000 minutes (local +STD as per Unlimited Pack benefits) in any period of consecutive 7 days, will be charged at 1p/sec for rest of 7 days period (e.g. if a customer consumes 1000 mins on 2nd day , s/he would be charged for rest of the five days). Customers calling more than 100 unique numbers in any period of seven consecutive days will be charged at 1p/sec (local+STD) after 100 unique numbers, for the rest of validity of recharge.

    The fact that Airtel opened Payment Bank accounts without consent is wrong and needs to be dealt with strongly. However, the credit of LPG subsidy to such account is not the handiwork of Airtel. It is a basic flaw in the system of LPG subsidy credit for which the concerned agencies/UIDAI themselves are responsible. The LPG subsidy gets credited to the last bank account that has been linked with Adhaar, irrespective of whatever bank account a customer has opted to receive subsidy given in his written application. This has been faced and reported by many. e.g. If a customer has an account in SBI and linked it to Adhaar and then given a written application to receive subsidy in that account, the subsidy is expected to be credited to that account only. But if 3 months later, he linked his second account (say with PNB) with adhaar then the subsidy would start getting credited to PNB instead of SBI, without the consent of the customer and even without any intimation to the customer. Now further 3 months later, if he opens an account in ICICI with the same Adhaar, the subsidy would start getting credited to ICICI, again without his consent and without any intimation. This is a known issue and people have raised complaints against it but UIDAI has done nothing on this. So it is the concerned agencies and UIDAI who are responsible for the credit of the Rs.167 Cr to Airtel payments bank.

    Subscriber base of Jio has increased drastically without similar increase in infrastructure and that has resulted in pathetic speed. Actually we all should fight for good speed and voice calls rather than low cost.

    After recharge it shows 84 days validity for the 2nd upcoming plan also as experienced by some users, but has anyone confirmed that once the 2nd plan gets activated does the expiry date is after 84 days? Update : Ok ! finally I got the details from the PDF from Jio website wherein the following is mentioned under terms. So only existing customers who recharged with ₹399 before 14th September 2017 will get 84 days on second recharge too. Read below: i. For all new subscribers opting this plan on or after 14thSeptember 2017, tariff benefits will be available for 84 days on first recharge with this plan thereafter customer has to recharge with Rs. 399 every 28 days. ii. All existing subscribers of this plan voucher, who recharged with this PV before 14thSeptember 2017 will continue to get committed tariff benefits of 84 days and on one more recharge with this plan will get tariff benefits for 84 days. Thereafter customer has to recharge with Rs. 399 every 28 days. iii. All existing subscribers, enrolled with Jio under any other plan Voucher and migrating to this PV or after 14th September 2017 will also get 84 days on recharge with this plan. Thereafter customer has to recharge with Rs. 399 every 28 days.

    The cashback is applicable on recharge of Rs. 399 done between 12th Oct. to 18th Oct. from all available recharge channels viz Jio stores, MyJio, Jio.com, Reliance Digital, Partner Retail stores, JioMoney, Paytm, AmazonPay, PhonePe and Mobikwik. You can redeem the cashback vouchers of Rs. 50 each after 15th Nov. 2017 from MyJio app. These vouchers can be redeemed, one at a time, against recharges of Rs 309 & above plans and against Rs 91 & above data add-ons. When will I get the 100% cashback? You will get 8 vouchers of Rs. 50 as cashback on recharge of Rs. 399 immediately. These vouchers will be credited in your account and visible in MyJio app under My Vouchers. In case you have purchased Rs. 399 as a voucher during the offer period, then the cashback will only be credited once this voucher of Rs.399 is redeemed. How can I gift 100% cashback offer? You can buy Rs. 399 voucher using MyJio by going to My Voucher section. This voucher of Rs. 399 can then be transferred to your dear ones. The cashback vouchers will be credited to the MyJio account of person redeeming the recharge voucher of 399.

    Reliance Jio, the latest telecom company to enter the market, has started its fiber to home operations in Chennai — making the southern city only the third telecom zone to experience the service, after Mumbai and Gujarat. The address of JioFiber has been given as 2nd Floor, Prestige Palladium Bayan, Greems Road, Chennai 2. The offer promises a speed of 100 Mbps, and states that a 5 GB true-HD movie will download in less than seven minutes on the connection. source

    ^^ Even after more than 1.5 years of testing if the network is not ready then it shows the infra and the preparedness of jio in a negative light. In the quest of pulling more users from other operators Jio must ensure they dont loose out on existing customers or prospective heavy users. Atleast 70-80% users are ready to pay and use Jio services if it improves there is no point in going free free free and loosing prospective customers. When Mr.Ambani announced that jio sim is available to all he said he has put in so much money into infra that he can launch 5g 6g as and when available present state even g is not working properly. Mukesh Ambani is a more dangerous business man than a Sunil Mittal if he reduces competition or gets into monopoly it would mean disaster to customers. People may not leave jio if free services continue agreed but at same time customers who chose jio for better services will leave jio if services are not upto mark

    You are right. Jio prime offer is just to retain the existing customers who have tasted the flavor of unlimited free and might feel suffocated with Data limitations. After 31st Jio will offer new schemes exclusively for MNP customers to pull them onto Jio Network. So those who are still stuck with other networks need not worry about missing Jio Prime Offer. Mukesh Amani is known for playing cards after cards (way back when Reliance CDMA was launched no one expected him to offer handsets for ₹ 500/-). So just wait and watch, the game is on.

    Yes, I have already done Rs999 (60 days -- 60GB) recharge once. May do another 5 times to get 420GB ( [60GB+10GB] x 6 times ) per year. JIO Prime Membership Terms & Conditions HERE. One interesting thing reg PRIME membership TRANSFER as below:- WOW.. Very Nice.. I think this will be very useful for people who (most of us) are using Jio as secondary (or even tertiary) number and are waiting for April to see improvement in network, so that they can PORT their primary number WITH JIO PRIME membership benefits.. Great going JIO...

    Good news is that SPR L720 works on OMH very well with data. I received a few phones last week which were shipped on 4.3 OTA. Rooted, flashed phil's recovery and updated to NAE 4.4 modem.tar, flashed rooted stock TW NAE 4.4 flashable ROM.zip from recovery and it reads any RUIM. Have also tested other international CDMA SIM cards on this baked tutorial. Chinese tutorial:- http://www.cdmamod.com/thread-1840-1-1.html the files:- http://pan.baidu.com/s/1hqsUCJU Note 1:- that GSM unlocking requires MDC modem, s4 unlocker and such, and that hidden menu may not be operable on 4.3/4.4 so please make sure its done before this procedure. The chinese tutorial states that a stock MK2 odin file is used, and then the 4.4 zip and the NAE modem, but i have not updated to 4.3 bootloader. Note 2:- OMH/GSM/NV mode (3 networks as called in China) also works on MDC base and CM roms. *Please use your favourite CDMA software to make the phone RUIM only/RUIM if avail before proceeding to this topic. *GSM usage by this method is under development. The entire tutorial is experimental and aimed towards achieving stock like performance.

    forgot yo post the cdma experience. so I bought a Motorola droid maxx (GSM/CDMA single sim) and a reliance prepaid sim. There was no voice breaking, no call drop on any floor as against GSM network. Great relief for me. I have ported my number to reliance cdma with advance rental plan of 16999/-. Data speed in evdo is not more than 600 kbps.

    Will CDMA suffer from this hike too? I thought this whole 2G scam was related to GSM cause CDMA works on different frequency. I thought 2G scam was about the 850MHz/900MHz(whichever works in India) band.

    Karbonn releases 3G-enabled low-cost Android phone at Rs. 6,999 - Karbonn A1 Source. Karbonn has launched its first Android-based handset in India, the Karbonn A1. Priced at Rs. 6,999, it joins the ranks of low-cost Android handsets from companies like Micromax, Spice, and Huawei. Like the Huawei Ideos U8150 and the new Micromax Andro A70, the Karbonn A1 comes with a capacitive touchscreen. The Karbonn A1’s most remarkable features are its connectivity options, which include 3G (7.2Mbps HSDPA) and GPS, as well as Wi-Fi hotspot functionality, apart from Bluetooth. Running Android 2.2 Froyo, the Karbonn A1 has a 2.8-inch display (resolution unknown), a 600MHz processor, a 3.2MP camera, a 3.5mm audio jack, and expandable microSD storage up to 32GB. Also onboard is SWYPE text input functionality, as well as various bundled apps, such as Bollywoodji, Saavn Music, and Tune Wiki. Karbonn is looking to get behind the popular Android platform in a big way in India, and apart from strongly promoting the A1, it intends to launch three other Android phones shortly. Let us hope it manages to deliver usable and well-built devices at prices that trigger even greater adoption of Android in India, providing choice in a still rather empty low-cost market.

    AFAIK, if a operator uses another operator's network to offer 3G services in a circle where they do not have 3G licence, then how will they bill for voice services or can they use the other operator's network only for 3G data? Will it not be roaming for the subscriber? Maybe all operators will remove roaming totally pan India - only then, this is possible. I had asked RCOM about Chennai since they do not have licence here - how they will offer 3G services here? This was the reply I got from them. But anything is possible in India. Though they did not divulge any details, they did hint at tie-ups with other operators, but then voice roaming will apply. Lets wait and watch as things unfold.... And IMHO, competition will not allow 3G pricing to be very ultra premium. Maybe for the first few months, operators may want to make merry, but even then people will start comparing BSNL's pricing for 3G services.

    And what about the services that the operators starts/activate without the customres concerns and no balance refund after 24 hrs....... huge revenue earning by this way..... TRAi should also take care for this........

    The termination charges for SMS was fixed at 10 paisa but TRAI never monitored the transactions in SMS charges which resulted in operators sending messages without paying any termination charges to each other. The business logic for operators was that SMS constitutes a major chunk of their traffic thus non-charging would negate any payment towards termination charges. This resulted in operators offering free SMS packs with mutual understanding. This started choking the networks as new entrants also started the same practice of offering free or lower SMS rates pack. Older telecos are not comfortable with new entrants utilizing similar strategy as majority of old customers reside on their network. Thus Bharti Airtel recently started charging 10 paisa as termination charges without dolling out any favors to other networks Currently a voice call is charged less than a SMS. The SMS charges ranges from 50 paisa - Rs.1 without considering any value added package plans. Thus the levying of termination charges will bring transparency to the whole messaging system at the same time see irrational telecom packages going out of market and SMS charges falling inline with calling charges. This move will hardly increase SMS charges but if TRAI interferes to bring down the SMS prices as majority of this revenues goes into operators kitty it could start a downfall in SMS charges.The operators currently earn a hefty profit through messaging as network cost is minimal in terminating messages thus they needs to bring rationality in their chtarges to benefit the subscribers
