  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. If you elaborate your issue, I may be able to help you.
  4. 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
  5. 10GB data add on mystery over. See the message from Jio below.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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).
  11. The 10GB is credited to every device I have and is not associated or given along with any recharge of ₹399. Don't know whether device switching will forfeit this or not but I have additional 5GB add on vouchers received with ₹399 recharges under the Xiaomi offer which will be forfeited if I switch handset.
  12. Cheers!! Jio is giving 10GB to all prime members valid for 28 days as 'add on' which expires on 27th March 2018. Check your MyJio app.
  13. You may disagree, but the fact is that by giving away dirt cheap offers they can easily surpass Airtel (number of subscribers) by the next year & as far as ARPU is concerned they are already well off (reporting profits) so there is no need to concentrate on improving it, at least at the moment - when they are looking for more subscribers. This can be addressed as "Killing the competition" but just think what was happening before the entry of Jio - all telecom operators were simply LOOTING. Now Jio has emerged as a "Robin Hood" and may be killing the competition, but who is benefited - We the users (remember 80%of Indian population is still poor). This is the reason why they are after masses and not merely after the bunch of high ARPU customers. I would like to say that when the things are beyond our control & we can't do anything about the present situation it is better to enjoy the cheap data till the "Looting Era" revives again if ever (although not expected).
  14. I think I know "What Jio wants?" - Number 1 position in India (Dominate Indian telecom). So Jio can go to any extent to achieve it. We must not forget that all these disruptive plans may disappear after 19th October 2019 (the dead line Jio has decided for Vouchers and Plans). Anyway - in spite of all the rumpus going around Jio I am enjoying good speed.
  15. Back to topic! Jio has now modified the add on packs - screenshot below.
  16. A republic day gift for everyone from Jio with right to call & internet... No matter how much we grumble or criticise Jio, one thing is sure that for a poor man "Achche Din Aa Gaye", thanks to Mr. Mukesh Ambani for introducing most affordable plans. (approx. 80% of Indian population is still poor) 1. Now voice users can enjoy unlimited calls, 2GB data & 300 sms for 28 days. 2. Jio Phone users who think paying ₹153 is too much if they are not using data, then now there is a damn cheap ₹49 plan for them with 1GB data and 50 sms too. And ₹153 plan users will get 1.5GB/day and 100 sms/day too.
  17. Is this the way they plan to offer competition to Jio or retain their subscribers from switching or lure new customers? It is really sad to see that such a big Telcom is not even capable of designing a good plan for its subscribers. This proves how much they care for their customers. Still dictating terms - (habit is something which is always difficult to change). It is high time for all operators in the field to come out with pure & simple plans without imposing much restrictions / confusing terms, instead should concentrate in maintaining the service quality so as to force the user to stay on their network. Because sincere customers are looking for good service and moderate prices (rock bottom or cheap pricing with odd restrictions is not required). Jio has left everyone behind in planning as it also has host of bundled apps along with data offering and since Jio has turned into profit (as reported in last quarter) now they may concentrate on strengthening their network wherever users are facing issues.
  18. 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.
  19. Jio band 3 & 40 gives better speed because band 5 is overburdened since most of the people are using indoors and are connected to band 5 (subscriber base has also increased). If you place the JioFi near window you may experience better speed.
  20. Jio - WiFi Calling

    Don't know about the present situation and Jio Fibre, but was working in Jio WiFi network (original Jio WiFi and not Hotspot). As I don't have LYF handset myself will have to ask someone to try again and will get back.
  21. Jio has silently upgraded the ₹153 plan (available for Jio Phone users) and now giving 1GB per day in place of 500MB per day. It is now identical to the Prime ₹149 plan but Jio Phone users have to recharge with ₹153 minimum to get the refund benefit of ₹1500.
  22. MyJio App

    Now you can get rid of the irritating 'Hello Jio' floating icon which appears every time you start MyJio app. Although one could drag and drop the icon on the delete icon near the bottom center of the screen or could permanently stop it by disabling the 'pop up permission' in the app permissions settings, but now after complaining several times Jio has provided a switch to enable or disable it. See the screenshot below : 1. Go to the MyJio settings > App Settings (you can see the 'HelloJio' as activated) 2. Tap on 'HelloJio' - a pop-up menu will appear. 3. Now switch off 'enable'. That's it, done! The thumbnail icon will not appear any more.
  23. You mean that you didn't receive port code. If so simply go to Vodafone/Jio store and tell them, they might be able to arrange code (internally) for you if you switch to their network.
  24. Jio - WiFi Calling

    Most of the 'LYF' handsets (upper range) support VoWifi and used to work with any network initially. Later it was blocked for other networks, but it will work if you try to use Jio WiFi network. Jio4GVoice app also works on the similar principle.
