  1. Yes it is so. Airtel & Vodafone will block OUTGOING calls after 30 Days If You Don’t Recharge. Further they will also block INCOMING calls after 45 days. The minimum recharge for validity extension is ₹35 ( Rs26.66 talk time along with 100MB 3G/4G data, for 28 days). So they have planned to dump all customers of lifetime validity who do not recharge frequently. Though this move will help them shed low ARPU customers and improve their ARPU figures but may also help Jio to induct all Airtel & Vodafone dropouts with ₹49 unlimited calling plan. We can just wait and watch for the outcome of this new development.
  2. After massive porting out request it was bound to happen.
  3. I would say Airtel & Vodafone are "Fishing in troubled waters" since, now they are just trying to improve their ARPU figures by shredding low ARPU users or forcing recharge upon them. I totally agree with you regarding the burden of maintaining such huge network but it is not going to help them by taking this step as by the way of loosing customers they cannot reduce their maintenance expenses but instead more calls will terminate to other networks. Though it is going to fetch them some quick revenue but is surely going to affect their future business, since many lifetime validity users were suppose to recharge a minimum of ₹200 every 6 months to continue their services and now forced recharging for them will only yield ₹55 extra ( since ₹35X13 = ₹455 i.e. ₹55 extra for 13X28 days= 364 days). No customer will ever want to live with the fear of losing outgoing after 28 days without any grace period if he forgets to recharge on the last day. IMHO it is a short term revenue collection policy and TRAI is equally involved since this violates the TRAI's 90 days disconnection policy. I am just concerned about the majority of lower income people using mobile - as they are going to be affected badly by this move.
  4. Attention !! Check "MyJio App" - Jio has silently credited 2GB / day Jio Celebration Pack Today.
  5. Don't go to Recharge section, instead go to "My Vouchers" (in MyJio app). Under "My vouchers" section click on "BUY" -> deselect/uncheck ₹399 voucher which is selected by default and select/check ₹149 voucher -> scroll down and select/check ₹11 booster voucher too -> proceed to payments. You will get an option to redeem your existing ₹50 discount voucher. You will get both the vouchers in your "My vouchers" section which can be activated/redeemed or transferred to any other number. Hope this clarifies.
  6. MyJio App

    I told you in my previous post (see below) that sometimes although the newer version is out but proper apk for specific Android version is not put on Play Store causing such errors.
  7. MyJio App

    My Jio app version 3.2.10 was giving the option "Get jio SIM" though I was already having the Jio SIM in my mobile and connected to Jio 4G network, but after updating the My Jio app to 3.2.11 it is not offering any more. I got the SIM without generating code so it was not required though. May be the IMEI of my slot got registered. I will check by swapping slots - not yet tried. Update: I think it was due to detection of Jio SIM and Jio Network - I found a workaround which again gives the option to generate code with Jio SIM in my handset and connected through Jio 4G network. Workaround: Disconnect Internet - Force stop My Jio app - now open My Jio app - it will show no internet on top - wait for few seconds for the app to settle background checks - now connect internet and wait for a while - within seconds you will see the option "Get Jio SIM" without fail.
  8. India Against Corruption - Parivartan

    Actually, as far as Mutual Fund is concerned I believe that there is no bad or good time to invest, but it is more important to select good (performing) or bad(mismanaged) fund while investing. Whenever the Market crashes/dips it gives an extra benefit if the amount is invested in Mutual Funds, because due to drop in NAV you get more units while purchasing and sooner or later it will revive and cross the current mark yielding more profit too.
  9. MyJio App

    I have experienced this type of issue before with some other app which was resolved later - so wait for 24 hours and then try. Sometimes the wrong apk (apk designed for higher version of Android) gets downloaded and fails to install. Just post your problem in the Play Store under review and it shall get sorted within 24 Hours.
  10. Data Localization

    With reference to the Circular issued by RBI regarding "Storage of Payment System Data" Phonepe has published a detailed/comprehensive article regarding Data Localization. The government is framing another Personal Data Protection Bill 2018 (Draft) to keep all consumer related data of Indians within India (Data Servers within India). This is a good move IMHO.
  11. I couldn't find any Mi or Xiaomi sub-forum (Now one of the Leading Brand) so I am posting this Good News for Mi handset users here. " Hi, Mi fans! We would like to share with you an important update. We are migrating our cloud servers to India for local storage. The data migration would cover all Indian user data across Xiaomi e-commerce platform (www.mi.com/in/), Mi Community (in.c.mi.com), Mi Cloud, MIUI (Xiaomi Market, feed, Mi Video, advertising, Mi Messaging, push notifications, etc) and Mi TV. We're migrating our local data to highly secure Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure infrastructure in India and all the existing data would be migrated by the end of 2018. All new Indian user data since 1st July is already being stored in local servers and all existing user data on mi.com/in/ will be fully migrated to servers in India by mid-September 2018. " Full article https://in.c.mi.com/thread-1563240-1-0.html
  12. Offer for Phonepe app users Only!! Now you can get ₹399 recharge for ₹299 only. i.e. ₹100 per month (28 Days). This offer is valid till 21st September 2018, so please hurry if you have not availed it yet. Remember it is only for the FIRST recharge during the offer period using Phonepe payment option & DO NOT PAY USING PHONEPE WALLET BALANCE - you will not get cashback (Use any other mode from within Phonepe viz. UPI, Debit or Credit Card). You need to pay at least ₹300 using any payment mode in Phonepe and pay the balance through Wallet Balance to be able to avail ₹50 cashback. Only proceed further when you see the Green label/tag at the bottom of the final Phonepe payment screen mentioning ₹50 cashback applied. ₹50 Jio Voucher gets applied only while recharging through Jio app and not through Jio website so be careful. You need to pay ₹349 and will get ₹50 cashback in Phonepe after successful transaction. For Phonepe terms go to https://tnc.phonepe.com/tncstore/18/09/10/OF1809101606514421075583/en.html
  13. Jio is giving FREE data to all its customers whereas Airtel is giving DATA to only 4G handset users and not to any 3G handset users. I have AIrtel SIM in my 3G handset and have been receiving SMS as well as calls from Airtel since last month to avail 10GB data. Airtel initially didn't disclose that it was only 4G data and just mentioned FREE DATA but later (since last 15 days) started mentioning 4G in SMS as well as calls. It is likely that some of its subscribers must have activated it and may have lost balances while using it in 3G handsets. I also had the same notion in the begining that it is FREE DATA but thank god I didn't try to avail it.
  14. JioFi2 MiFi

    You can try cleaning the terminals of your WiFi card. Open the bottom of your laptop. Disconnect antenna wires & Take out the WiFi Card. Clean the terminals using Any soft rubber eraser. Re-insert the card, connect the Antenna wires & reboot. Download the latest drivers if required. Should work like before.
  15. Suggest 4G Smartphone

    Yes! You are absolutely right. By the end of this year we can expect several models from different leading brands with Dual VoLTE feature. I am also looking for a handset with Dual VoLTE.
  16. Jio is giving FREE one year extension for prime membership. But one has to manually express his consent for Jio to enable it. See screen shot below : My plan updated
  17. If you elaborate your issue, I may be able to help you.
  18. It is not because of Jio Sim but because of price revision - Airtel revised its ₹399 plan on 22nd January from 70 days to 84 days. See below news https://gadgets.ndtv.com/telecom/news/jio-398-vs-airtel-399-plan-prepaid-extended-validity-84-days-1803191 https://m.businesstoday.in/story/airtel-rs-399-plan-offer-data-per-day-reliance-jio/1/268573.html
  19. 10GB data add on mystery over. See the message from Jio below.
  20. Yes Rcom would collect the money and after 1 year may announce the abrupt closure after launch of Jio TV saying it is difficult to compete in the market.
  21. Jio4GVoice App (JioJoin)

    If you are using it with JioFi device then just switch off the handset on which Jio4GVoice is installed. Then connect the new handset to JioFi on which you want to install Jio4GVoice. Download the latest version of Jio4GVoice and install & configure it using the JioFi number and Otp. Once completed the older Jio4GVoice will get disabled by itself.
  22. Jio has provided details regarding Jio4GVoice app at https://www.jio.com/en-in/apps/jio-4g-voice (Link updated) https://www.jio.com/en-in/apps/jio-join Read the FAQ's carefully at the bottom of the page - will help to solve issue as well as clear several confusions too. A few of them are here. Calling features are disabled on JioJoin for VoLTE phones as they are already available natively. Jio4GVoice brings 4G HD voice & video calling on your existing 2G / 3G, LTE smartphone & Rich Communication features on all smartphones including VoLTE phones. It uses the Jio SIM number (which becomes your Jio4GVoice’s app number). In addition to app-to-app calls, it lets you make & receive calls from any mobile/ landline number. It allows you to send SMS to any mobile user. It also has chat, file sharing & never-seen-before Rich calling features. I have enabled the 'Grant Write Settings Permission' to JioJoin but am not able to proceed. What should I do? This is a standard Marshmallow (Android M) permission required by JioJoin app to proceed. If you have enabled ‘Grant Write Settings Permission’ but are still not able to proceed: 1. Tap on 'Grant Write Settings Permission' 2. Scroll down the list of apps & select JioJoin 3. Turn off the ‘Allow Modify system settings’ slider 4. Turn on the ‘Allow Modify system settings’ slider to enable it once again Go back and continue with the registration process How can I start using Jio4GVoice? 1. You can download Jio4GVoice from Google Playstore. Please note Jio4GVoice is currently available only on Android phones running OS 4.0 & above. 2. After downloading it, you have to configure it using a Jio SIM. 3. If you have a 4G phone, you can just insert a Jio SIM & configure it. 4. If you have a JioFi with Jio SIM, you can configure any 2G/3G/4G smart phone with it. Once you configure Jio4GVoice, the phone number of Jio SIM with which it is configured becomes the phone number of the app & the app is ready to be used. Can I use Jio4GVoice with any kind of data connectivity? Yes, you can connect JioJoin with any kind of data connectivity provided the Jio SIM is present in your device. But if the app is configured using JioFi SIM, then you can use JioJoin only when the phone is connected to the JioFi SIM with which it was configured initially. Presently, it can only be used with Jio's network. When does Jio4GVoice app get connected? JioFi: When Jio4GVoice has been configured with a JioFi SIM, then it will go to connected state only if the phone is connected to the same JioFi SIM with which it was configured. OR Jio SIM: When Jio4GVoice has been configured with a Jio SIM in the device, then it will go to connected state when the phone is connected to Jio Network any 4G data / Wi-Fi/ other mobile data, provided Jio SIM is still in the device. Important : If your Jio4GVoice is giving error you may need to make the following changes - under the Network settings enable Global. LTE or any other option may not work. Can I configure Jio4GVoice using the personal Hotspot of my phone with a Jio SIM? Jio4GVoice cannot be configured using any personal Hotspot even if it belongs to a Jio SIM. You can configure Jio4GVoice in 2 ways: 1) On any smartphone by connecting to a JioFi with a Jio SIM in it 2) On an LTE DO phone by inserting a Jio SIM in the phone. (DO =Data Only/non-VoLTE) Please follow this before attempting to configure Jio4GVoice: Before inserting the SIM in a non - VoLTE handset you must activate data by dialing 1800-890-1977 from your alternate number and completing Tele-verification by punching the last 4 digits of your POI / Aadhar Card when asked to do so. Now insert the SIM in your non-VoLTE handset. Now once the data gets activated you can download Jio4GVoice and configure it. (Sometime though the data starts working but still it will not be possible to configure Jio4GVoice immediately due to late updating in servers - so wait for approx. 1 hour maximum before trying anything else.) IMPORTANT: Once the Jio4GVoice is configured using OTP, you will still not be able to make calls (SMS will work but no calls) unless you first dial 1977 and re tele-verify to activate voice services.
  23. 5GB add on you got must have been under Xiaomi offer & is associated with particular handset and cannot be used with any other device. It seems they are giving on lot basis - so keep checking, you may get the 10GB on the other sim within next few days. Good luck!
  24. I have changed one of my sim from mobile handset to newly purchased (26th January 2018) iBall Tab and got 10GB on that device too. The particular sim was lying without any plan from 8th Nov to 26th January when I inserted it into iBall and restored the services by redeeming one of my ₹399 stored voucher on that sim. I don't know what exactly is the eligibility criteria for getting 10GB but I got it on all my connections - Lava X11, Redmi Note 3 Pro and iBall Tab too (purchased in January 2018).
