  1. I am able to login to the account and the creds are valid too, however on logon it just gives an error message I am able to access the Profile Settings page, and there I tried to change the email to another dummy email, this went through as well, but the old email is not yet de-linked or available for re-use. Now I can login to the account using the old and new email ids. Weird.
  2. I understand, but I would like to use my email and login with a password.
  3. Yes, my email is visible in the profile section when login with SIM or SMS.
  4. I am in a similar situation So I had a Jio number during the initial days and that was the primary number of my Jio account with my email address. Subsequent Jio connections I just linked to this account. Now that first number has been disconnected for inactivity and has already been issued to another customer. When I login to the Jio account with email address, it says unable to process the request. I am not able to switch to another linked number as well. I went it to the profile and gave a dummy email and verified it as well, but the first email remains linked to that account. I contacted Jio but they don't seem to understand. I have sent another email with screenshots and things, let's see what they say, but meanwhile is there anything else I can do to fix this? I need to access my Jio account with my original email address itself.
  5. Just wanted to give an update regarding the porting. Mine was from Vodafone Postpaid to Jio Prepaid. MNP request / eKYC at Reliance Digital - August 21st, 2017 9 PM Received an SMS from Vodafone immediately ie at 9:02 PM stating Did not receive any SMS from Jio except for the order details on the alternate number. Vodafone called me 2-3 times asking why I am porting out etc and tried to offer retention plans. On the 4th day, ie August 24th, 2017 10:01 PM I got another SMS from Vodafone stating port out request has been accepted. Immediately following the SMS from Vodafone, got another SMS from Jio stating On August 26th night around 10:30 PM, lost the Vodafone signal, but since I was travelling I could get to the Jio sim only after an hour or so. Once I inserted the Jio SIM it immediately latched on to the network and incoming calls were available. I then did the Rs 498 recharge for Prime + JDDD offer. 1. No proper communication from Jio to the affected number. 2. Time of porting was not sent by Vodafone or Jio.
  6. I initiated the porting process from Vodafone postpaid to Jio on 21st, and the only SMS that I received regarding the porting was from Vodafone, which came almost immediately after the order was placed on Jio's side. (After biometric verification etc on the Jio agent's device) The message stated And the only message that I received from Jio was to the alternate number that I provided to Jio, with the details of the order number and things like that. I think Jio can definitely improve on the communication, saying port out request received and all those.
  7. I guess it was a temporary issue around that time period (August 7 - August 15), I was able to initiate the porting process yesterday ie August 21st without issues.
  8. Is there any issues going on with Jio for MNP? I've been checking multiple Reliance Digital stores and Jio Centers in Bangalore over the last 2-3 days and all of them say MNP is down everywhere in India. They said there is some server issues going on with Jio so during the MNP process, it errors out.
  9. ^ 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.

    ^ You don't need the code any more. They are giving sims for any 4G handset under JPO Open Offer.
  12. Reliance CDMA Network Upgrade To 4G LTE

    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 rcom.co.in 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?
  13. Reliance CDMA Network Upgrade To 4G LTE

    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.

    My father's connection in Kochi, Kerala is not working. CDMA is dead but GSM/4G sim isn't active either. Postpaid connection.
