  1. I got the JioFi2 MiFi device and 90 days preview SIM from Jio a couple of days ago. The device was being sold to everyone (without HP invite) though the next day the store guy called me over phone and told me that the offer has been withdrawn and is being offered to HP invitees only. Anyway he said that he will activate my SIM. So I'm not sure if this is still available at other stores without invite, but you can try your luck by checking at the nearest store if you don't have a HP invite email. The device is pretty good with a small form factor and good build. It has band 3, 5 and 40 support but there is no option to lock to a particular band. The device is locked to Jio SIM; so you won't be able to use any other provider SIM. The speeds are pretty much the same as a LYF phone's speed but the WiFi hotspot is more stable without getting disabled intermittently (which I noticed in LYF handset hotspot). The device is also very much configurable using the inbuilt web interface: The Power Save timeout can be configured from 10 minutes to OFF setting; useful if you are going to keep it switched on permanently. UPnP (useful for PS4, Xbox) can be enabled/disabled and has options for configuring port forwarding also. The device also has a microSD card slot and you can share the SD card data through the hotspot using the web interface. I have configured it as a HotSpot and connected JioPlay and was able to cast the screen to TV using Google ChromeCast: There was no buffer at all even though the device was connected to band 5 (which has lesser bandwidth when compared to band 40 and so is slower than band 40) Price was Rs.2899 including the 90 day preview SIM. Let me know if anyone has other questions!

  5. Jio Cinema (Jio Ondemand) was working fine on my Lyf Water 1 handset but since the past many days it has been showing the error message in the attached picture. I have tried re-installing and removing data & cache. Its still the same and everything else like Jio TV (Jio Play) works fine. Jio Cinema is working on other handsets as well. Has anyone else come across this issue with Jio Cinema on LYF handsets?
  6. Looks like the port is blocked. What is the port number configured in the Outgoing Mail server setting? 25?
  7. WiFi calling wasn't working when I checked a couple of months ago

  10. You won't be able to
  11. Economic Times Bureau | The Hindu Business Line - 02 November 2015 Anil Ambani owned Reliance Communications is merging the telecom business of Sistema Shyam Teleservices (SSTL) with itself in a cashless deal worth around Rs 4,500-5,000 that will lead to the first major consolidation in the intensely competitive sector since 2009. The move will be a challenge to Reliance Jio, which was the biggest holder of 800 MHz spectrum before this deal. With this, RCom has overtaken Jio as the holder of the biggest amount of 800 MHz 4G spectrum in India. n addition, RCom will assume the liability to pay the government installments for SSTL's spectrum, amounting to Rs 392 crore per annum for the next 10 years. "RCom will acquire approximately 9 million customers and approximately Rs 1,500 crore of annual revenues by virtue of the transaction," the company said in a statement. In addition, RCom will acquire SSTL's most valuable and superior 800/850 MHz band spectrum, ideally suited for 4G LTE services, to complement its own unique nationwide footprint of minimum 5 MHz contiguous 800/850 MHz spectrum aggregating 148.75 MHz. "SSTL will get around 10% stake in the combined entity, but no board seat and no veto powers," a person directly involved in the deal said. ET had first reported on May 20 that Reliance Communications (RCOM) is holding talks on a possible takeover of SSTL in an all-stock deal that could give the latter's shareholders a stake of around 10% in the merged entity. The deal will give India's fourth largest carrier access to airwaves in the 850 Mhz band which can be used for 4G services that it plans to start by year-end. Moreover, it will be able to extend the validity of its licenses by 12 years in eight high revenue generating circles like Delhi, Gujarat, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. On the other hand, holders in SSTL, which has been struggling to grow its CDMAbased telecom business, will get to be a part of a stronger company. Three people familiar with the matter said every shareholder of SSTL, the Indian unit of Russian conglomerate Sistema JSFC, will get one share of RCOM for 11.5 shares of theirs. RCOM is valued at around Rs 19,000 crore according to the company's BSE closing stock price on Friday of Rs 75.25. Besides the stock, RCOM won't take on any loans from pure play CDMA carrier's books, a relief to investors worried about the company's debt, which stood at Rs 38,595 crore at end of June. The company though needs to pay the roughly Rs 400 crore a year, including interest, for 10 years starting February 2016, that SSTL owes to the DoT for the spectrum won in the March 2013 auctions, sources said. Excluding interest, SSTL, which operates in India under the MTS brand, owes around Rs 2,500 crore to the DoT which RCOM is taking on its books. "Post RCOM's board approval, it should take about five to six months for the deal to close, post approvals from CCI (Competition Commission of India) and DoT. This won't need an FIPB (Foreign Investment Promotion Board) nod," the person said. The promoter group holding in RCOM will come down to around 54% from nearly 60% currently. The person added that Sistema JSFC may infuse more funds to raise its stake in the new entity at a later stage, but "nothing concrete has been decided on this issue". Sistema JSFC, which entered India in 2007, holds nearly 57% in SSTL. Other shareholders include the Russian government with more than 17% and Shyam Group holding 24%. Minority shareholders own the rest. Once the deal closes, it will be the first major consolidation in the sector since Telenor bought into Unitech Wireless in 2009. "The MTS brand will cease to exist, while there is a non-compete clause with Sistema," the person said, adding that details on taking over MTS's employees are being worked ou. RCOM's board is meeting on Monday to consider the merger. Sistema's board cleared the deal on Saturday. Spokespersons at RCOM and SSTL declined to comment. SSTL offers services in nine of India's 22 service areas to around 9 million subscribers. RCOM is a pan-India operator offering both CDMA and GSM services and has around 110 million users. "MTS brings in about Rs 1,500 crore of (annual) top line and around 10,000 sites, besides IT infrastructure," the person cited above said. Analysts said buying MTS, which possesses airwaves in Delhi, Gujarat, TN, Karnataka, Kerala, UP (West), Kolkata, West Bengal and Rajasthan, may work well for RCOM given the latter's focus on 4G LTE. MTS bought spectrum in eight of those circles, excluding Rajasthan, in an auction in 2013. Thus RCOM won't have to pay anything more to the government.
  12. FTP Server Not Connected

    What does telnet command to FTP port (21) show on your PC?
  13. ^^ I am guessing that is from the Jio website. Since they have mentioned "prepaid and postpaid customers", I think that is for the FUP limit in the paid plans and not in the Free Welcome plan since the speed changes to 128 kbps with unlimited data transfer.
  14. 1 GB per day limit will be applicable for the Happy New Year offer
  15. JioFi2 device has UPnP and port forwarding options
  16. ^^^ interesting... I've got a similar request from AirTel some time ago though I did not follow up as I was out of station. I guess you had submitted the form at ril.com where they were looking for interested parties to lease space for installing cell sites? Anyway don't worry about radiation as it is certified not to cause harmful radiation. Go ahead and let us know how it went.
  17. ^^ tried network reset but it's the same Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I have 25.1 too on iPhone 6 (A1586) but the Personal Hotspot option is still not working/enabled.
  19. Digital Xpress store here received some stuff related to porting this week and should be available for everyone by next week
  20. iPhone 6 and above will work with VoLTE for Jio A previous carrier update removed the hotspot option in iPhone which was working fine earlier
  21. VoWifi

    I have tried VoWiFi on iPhone 6 with Jio SIM. The option does show up in iPhone 6 which suggests that the operator supports it. However it doesn't work on other broadband connections; it requires a Jio WiFi.
  22. It's basically the more you pay the more you get. Rs.50 per GB is an average effective price depending on the plan you choose.
  23. It is the starting rate. Device could be different.
  24. Clever marketing strategy there... Lower segment will go for Rs.149 plan as it has unlimited voice, which will give them a stable ARPU... Higher segment will go for Rs.499 plan for the data, which will give them high ARPU
  25. With the Non-compete Agreement scrapped couple of days ago between Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani, do you think Mukesh Ambani will give another shot at Telecommunications by starting a new telecom company? In my opinion he may not and would enter into the financial sector, but he can't start a new bank since Reserve Bank of India will not give a license to an industry house. Maybe Mukesh will foray into Power sector?
