  1. ^ They might throttle your speeds if you use non-supported devices. Two of my connections got throttled, to around 200-250 Kbps. When I called them they said the device (they had the correct model number of the device on their end) isn't supported and they cannot help me with it. I inserted the sim in a 4G handset, the speeds were restored to the usual (slow) speeds in 1-2 Mbps that I get usually.
  2. Reliance Digital @ Elements Mall, Nagwara
  3. ^ You don't need the code any more. They are giving sims for any 4G handset under JPO Open Offer.
  4. Circle - Kerala, Location - Perumbavoor, Ernakulam I have a RCDMA connection which I used to use only for one day unlimited Rs 41 plan, just recharge when needed and use. I had not registered with the 4G SIM for this connection. I just tested it today and it was registering to EVDO network and was able to make calls and send/receive SMS. I had a 4G sim lying around which Reliance sent by post as my father has another postpaid connection. I used that SIM and used the website to register for 4G. Entered the number/MDN, new 19 digit sim number, the old 15 digit RSN (RECRUCxxx) and provided my alternate number. Within 5-10 minutes, the CDMA SIM stopped working and GSM/4G SIM got activated. Calls, SMS all working fine. The GSM signal here is so poor, I didn't bother trying data. Anyway I also sent START to 1925 for data. After that checked data balance sending MBAL to 55333, got SMS saying I have 0 3G balance, but 10240 MB of 2G balance. Is this the free 4G data they promised? But only 15/14 days validity. I have not recharged for Re 1 or Rs 93 or Rs 97. 1. Does the 2G data mentioned here work with 4G if and when it is available? 2. Is 4G active in Bangalore? If so if I use this 4G SIM in Bangalore, can I make use of the free 4G data technically while roaming?
  5. Yep, had done done few weeks ago. Anyway I did send an email to Nodal/Appellate authority and also my father sent someone to the Reliance Store, not sure what fixed it, now both incoming and outgoing is working fine. He doesn't need data, just voice/sms, so not sure about the data.
  6. My father's connection in Kochi, Kerala is not working. CDMA is dead but GSM/4G sim isn't active either. Postpaid connection.
  7. Is this after you migrated to RGSM? My porting request is getting denied (I haven't yet registered the sim) in Bangalore.
  8. I submitted my request to port out to Idea from Reliance CDMA at Bangalore. I have not upgraded to 4G, but my porting request has been denied (got SMS saying it has been denied by the donor operator). I called Reliance customer care and they are saying porting is not allowed and everyone MUST convert to 4G. This is BS! They are not even ready to take a complaint for it. :@
  9. Updated to Marshmallow today, no issues. Everything working well with EVDO data. Using RUIM.
  10. Got a notification for the Marshmallow update, did anyone try it? Everything working without issues after the update?
  11. Did you get this working? Could you please share the steps?
  12. Thanks @iamrafic -- Unlocked GSM with that ROM. CDMA Data also is working fine on that ROM. Will now go ahead and install the latest Lollipop RUU.
  13. Can you link to the rooted kitkat with init.d that you flashed to get the unlock working? I have a Sprint HK Edition M8.
