    finally they rejected my port request today stating unpaid dues. Cant understand y did they take so long. Rcom raised a bill for Nov for our 7 numbers.  Except mine all got ported by Mid Nov. Seems they intentionally kept mine pending :( 2800 bucks is what their bill says and will be deposited tomm by chq.

    I have again applied for MNP to airtel. Hopefully this time it shd go thru. 

    You should have cleared payment first and then only applied for MNP. Now if your MNP request from Airtel reaches before your payment cheque is cleared & credited in your account, it will still show as outstanding in their record & they might reject it again for unpaid dues. In fact in addition to last bill amount, you should deposit some extra amount which should cover your rent & usage from last generated bill date till the date of porting. As per actual rule, one needs to make only payment of generated bill. Remaining amount from generated bill to porting date can be paid after porting when that final bill is generated. But they have rejected porting on this amount unpaid also. (Happened to me earlier).

    Has anyone been able to port out their postpaid RCOM number to a prepaid number of a different operator, and activate the same on the new network? I was asked to pay an inflated bill (almost double of what I usually pay) before the initial port out was done. But so far, it's been 5 days, and I'm still on RCOM. I haven't got any sms regarding the port out status. I'm in Mumbai circle.

    A relative ported his postpaid RCOM number to JIO prepaid successfully in 7 days. He received two messages from JIO, 1st when RCOM approved porting request and 2nd intimating day of porting.

    You can call the helpline of network you are porting into and they will tell you the status of porting.

    Did you have to download the Jio app for it (to get the coupon code) or did you directly go to the Jio store to get the number ported to Jio?

    I tried the MyJio app but am not able to get this coupon code. It seems you need some Jio ID for the same, which I don't have. So I'm looking for the best way I can migrate my Reliane GSM prepaid number to Jio. I have the Aadhaar card but getting stuck at this coupon code part. Any specific advise in this regard would be helpful. Thanks!

    No coupon code or App download is needed. Just go to JIO store with your Port Code and Aadhar Card for migrating your Reliance number to JIO.

    I'm on a postpaid Reliance connection. If I port out to a different operator, can I do so to a prepaid connection or do I have to take a postpaid connection with the new operator too?

    You can take either prepaid or postpaid as per your choice with the new operator.

  5. Jio Customer Database of over 120 million users leaked
    could be biggest data breach in India


    In an interesting development , Jio customer data has been leaked on an independent website named magicapk. Several sensitive details including first name, last name ,mobile number, email-id,circle, SIM Activation Date and even Aadhaar Number have been exposed.  To my disbelief I found my own details in the database and also couple of my colleagues are affected too.

    Update: 10:39PM IST with quote from Jio spokesperson.

    It could be the biggest data breach in India as the data leak in question over pertains to a database of over 120 million users of Reliance Jio. The website seems already a little sluggish and expected to go down soon as more users rush to find out if their personal data has been leaked. It took a couple or three tries for the number to show up on the website. It is not clear at this moment why this data has been leaked or how someone outside Jio got access to sensitive customer data.

    We tried finding the details about the owner of the domain in question but seems to be hidden and marked private. Also we observed that those who got the Jio sim card during the preview offer are most affected. Recent numbers don’t seem to be found in the database. Also we were not able to see AADHAR of the customer from the limited numbers we tried.

    UPDATE: Jio has provided the following quote responding to our story.

        We have come across the unverified and unsubstantiated claims of the website and are investigating it. Prima facie, the data appears to be unauthentic. We want to assure our subscribers that their data is safe and maintained with highest security. Data is only shared with authorities as per their requirement. We have informed law enforcement agencies about the claims of the website and will follow through to ensure strict action is taken.

    We still stand by our story. We have checked multiple Jio numbers of our own and 3rd parties on the website where the data has been leaked and our personal information is available.

  6. SMS sending to special numbers starting with 5 & 6 fails with error 29. (For example HDFC bank SMS banking number 5676712). Complaint was lodged but closed without any resolution. Upon escalating to apellate authority, they have informed that sending SMS to special numbers is currently disabled system wide for all. They were unable to mention any timeline when this will be enabled.

  7. As per this report 4G will start in phases from Mid August.

    Reliance Communications Set to launch 4G across india in phases - Starting Mid August

    In the first flush, RCom will launch 4G services in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh.

    KOLKATA: Reliance Communications (RCom) is set to launch 4G services on its own across India in phases, starting mid-August from the key circles of Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and will gradually leverage its sharing agreement with Reliance Jio Infocomm as clearances come through.

    India's fourth largest telco expects clearances from the telecom department on its sharing deal with Jio in eight circles in a week to 10 days, having already got approval for nine others previously. RCom has also received clearances to trade, or sell, its spectrum in nine circles to Jio for some Rs 4,800 crore, and plans to extend that pact to four more service areas for roughly Rs 1,000 crore, people familiar with the matter told ET.

    RCom "is also set to wrap up tests relating to lawful interception & monitoring (LIM) of its 4G network", completion of which will trigger the 4G launches, one of the persons said. It has also concluded LIM-related tests in 15 circles, and expects to wrap up the exercise in all 22 regions by June 20.

    In the first flush, RCom will launch 4G services in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, UP-East and UP-West, these people said. RCom now holds liberalised airwaves in the 800 MHz band across all 22 circles.

    It has forked out Rs 6,667 crore to the telecom department (DoT) to liberalise its 800 MHz airwaves in 20 circles. Besides, it already had such airwaves in Northeast and Assam acquired in the March 2015 auction. Liberalising or 'paying the market price' for airwaves that were allotted and not auctioned, will allow RCom to use its 800 MHz spectrum to offer 4G services. An email query to RCom did not elicit a response.

    The company's decision to independently launch 4G stems from the fact that it has recently switched off its CDMA network and needs to progressively migrate its 6 million-odd CDMA customers to fourth-generation services. More importantly, DoT approval for RCom's spectrum sharing pact in the 800 MHz band with Reliance Jio Infocomm is still pending in eight circles, including Haryana, Punjab, West Bengal, Assam, Bihar, Himachal Pradesh, Northeast and Odisha.

    Earlier this year, RCom had inked a 17-circle airwaves sharing deal in the 800 MHz band with Jio, and in April, DoT allowed them to share such airwaves in 9 circles.

  9. How about Lenovo Vibe P1 Kanagadeepanji? Does it support VoLTE? There has been a ₹3000 price cut announced.

    Sent using Tapatalk

    Lenovo Vibe P1 currently do not support VOLTE.

    But it is hardware capable so if a software update is provided, VOLTE will work.

    For india LTE bands it supports band 3 & 40 but no support for band 5 (800+ Mhz current CDMA being vacated by R Com for 4G upgrade)

  10. Buy band 5, 40, volte enabled as most of us will ultimately port to jio later

    Sent from my Redmi Note 3 using Tapatalk

    Jio has pan india spectrum in band 40 - 2300Mhz.

    It also has Band 5 - 850 Mhz sharing with Reliance.

    It further acquired in auction band 3 - 1800 Mhz in some circles.

    If Jio's 4G for Reliance CDMA upgrade customers is deployed on band 5, it will also deploy 4G in band 3 & 40.

    Otherwise what Jio will do with spectrum in band 3 & 40?

    My proposition is that a 4G handset with band 3 support should work in some circles & with band 40 support should work in all circles for data.

    (VOLTE will depend on handset support).

    Handset without VOLTE support should also work for voice as Jio has Pan India agreement with BSNL & Reliance Communication for 2G/3G voice fallback.

    So the conclusion is,

    All handset with particular deployed 4G band in respective circle but without VOLTE will latch on either BSNL or R COM GSM network for voice

    All handset with particular deployed 4G band in respective circle but with VOLTE will use Jio data network for Voice & will switch to 2G/3G voice fallback where Jio coverage ends.

    Is my understanding correct?

  11. Supreme Court dismisses 4G spectrum case against Reliance Jio


    Supreme Court has dismissed a plea challenging 4G spectrum allocation to Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd (RJIL).

    In a ruling, the country's apex court said that there are no irregularities in spectrum allocation and turned down plea for CBI inquiry. Regarding the charge of allowing Reliance Jio to offer voice service on 4G spectrum, SC said that it is for the government to take a decision.

    The case was filed by an NGO challenging grant of 4G licences to Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Jio.

    The apex court had earlier issued notice to the Centre, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and RJIL on the petition of Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) challenging the government's decision to allow Mukesh Ambani's company to offer voice services on its 4G spectrum.

    The PIL, filed through Bhushan, had also sought quashing of the permission granted by the government to Reliance for providing voice telephony on Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) spectrum and pitched for a court-monitored CBI investigation in the alleged Rs 40,000 crore scam.

    The petition said that the Centre's decision to allow voice telephony has given undue benefit of about Rs 22,842 crore to RJIL and corresponding loss to the Government and "is therefore arbitrary, unreasonable and discriminatory".

    It had also alleged that the company was allowed "backdoor entry" into voice telephony using BWA spectrum by paying entry fee of meagre amount of Rs 1,658 crore determined way back in 2001, a figure which has been rejected by the apex court in its February 2, 2012 judgement in 2G spectrum allocation scam case.

    The petition had claimed that the decision not to increase the Spectrum Usage Charges to the same level as is being paid by the other operators who provide voice telephony under Unified Access Services licence, was discriminatory.
