    On my experience in certain places of Kolkata - specially in Rajarhat-Newtown area, Jio does not have proper 2300/1800 coverage and SIM shifts to 850MHz even on outdoor areas. And the speed is pretty low - max 5Mbps on outdoor and less than 800kbps on indoor most of the time.

    So in case Jio has no own 4G coverage in this area, it relies on RCom 4G 850Mhz which in turn has better speed - 8-14Mbps most of the time. Why this difference? 

    This is also the problem here in UPE. At my residence, Jio switches onto 850MHz with utter garbage speeds and even outdoor speeds are pathetic. Vodafone on the other hand only has indoor 4G coverage with 5-6Mbps speeds which are fine considering the state of other operators.

    RCOM 4G has shared all its band 5 spectrum to Jio and is deployed by Jio itself. The RCOM 4G you see is actually Jio's network with RCOM's special MCC-MNC codes. The difference of the speeds is a strange phenomenon. At my location both RCOM and Jio has same garbage speeds. Exactly same. RCOM however uses different networking switch systems and that may possibly impact speeds in some scenario.

    This is kind of offtopic, but need some opinion from members. 

    Isuue #1. My parents have 2 MTS connection. Now we all forget the SIM cards were taken by whose documents. Can we port these numbers to Jio by giving probable IDs? 

    I meant to say a SIM was taken with my id, can I port to another operator by giving another person's ID? 

    Issue #2. my brother has left India and requested for port out to airtel from jio before leaving country. Interestingly airtel sims which were given to him, are yet to be active and Jio SIM continues to work fine. Is Jio blocking port out? 

    Here the same question arrives again, as the Jio SIM of my brother lies with me, can I port the SIM to airtel with my documents? 

    Issue #3. What are the dual 4G supported handsets available in market? 

    (airtel 4G/Jio 4G both access needed)

    Issue 1- Yes definitely, i have ported two of the SIM cards from my father's id to my id. There is no mechanism in MNP to check the ownership of the numbers. Please note that while porting they (store executive) may ask if the number is under your ownership. Reply yes even if it is not.

    Issue 2- Ask airtel CC to check the status for you.

    Issue 3- I think they are but very limited.

    You have two options :

    1. Either provide a local address proof for selecting mobile connection in that particular circle irrespective of your address in Aadhaar.

    2. You can port the number to Vodafone Delhi (National Portability) and use only Aadhaar for eKYC. You can have more than one connection from the same operator subject to the maximum limit of total 9 mobile connection one can own.

    Even if you provide Aadhaar for EKYC, you still need a local address and reference to be put in Aadhaar ekyc app if your Aadhaar state does not match the state in which you are porting in.

    My friend had ported his number from Kolkata to Assam last year.

    I am glad that government had allowed it. Earlier it was prohibited citing security order even though BSNL appealed for the ban to be lifted.

    I have a Vodafone number in Delhi. My Rcom number belongs to UPE. Can I port it to Vodafone? Or I cannot opt the same operator in two different circles?

    If you have UID of Delhi then it will be a hassle free process but if the UID is of UP, then you need to specify a local address in the EKYC app. Rest assured, you can port your number inter circle with an exception of J&K, NE and Assam.

  5. I wish to share my experience with FRC on Vodafone. Once my friend handed me his Vodafone unactivated SIM card from Punjab which was waiting to be ported from Idea Cellular. It ported fine and i started with recharging it with Rs 50. Recharge was successful but no talktime was credited even though recharge message was received. Again tried and tried again with Rs 10. All the same. Called CC and he asked me to do a FRC. The cheapest amount was of Rs 4 so went with it. After that i again recharged with Rs 50 and balance was credited.

    So take my advice, do FRC or you would lose more than Rs 100 as in this case. I don't know how much things have changed but first recharge is so named for a reason. 

  6. My RCOM number got latched on Vodafone’s network now. And the fun part is —

    No I/C call, i get “Please check the number you have dialed”
    No O/G call, when i try i recorded IVR “Dear Reliance customer, You are connected on Vodafone’s network, calls cannot be completed. Please port your number to Vodafone. Sent PORT your reliance mobile number to 1900″. For assistance, please call 1800123457 from other mobile number”.

    Really fun to watch TBH!

    I have also requested yesterday.


    But i got 3 sms

    sms on altenative number- mentioning order number

    on PORTING number -sms2 from jio saying porting request received

    sms3- from vodafone saying acknowledged request.


    My request is vodafone (postpaid ) to jio prepaid.

    store person said, change in procedure, we did not pay Rs99+309 upfront. bcoz i remeber on of friend lost 2*99, when his request was rejected by donar twice and jio disnt provided refund.


    @varkey does ur number got ported? which day 4th or 7th?

    If its with EKYC then expect it to be done within 4-5 days as with my every MNP request. Traditional method might take a little longer. Also beware of Vodafone as they are very very infamous for rejecting porting requests on absurd grounds.

    Also keep us updated of the process including the communications received from Jio as i was planning to take up the matter of "lack of communication from Jio side while porting a number" to Jio care.
