Reliance Jio finally launched but its not yet open to all. Officially its only available for some selected Samsung Devices and All Lyf phones. Here in this tutorial we are going to guide you about How To Activate Jio Preview offer in almost all Android Devices. Yes you read it right, now you can activate Reliance Jio Preview Offer which includes unlimited data and calling feature for next 3 months in all Android devices whether its Samsung or any other brand. So let’s proceed further and check out this awesome way to activate Reliance Jio Preview offer.
Yesterday, TelecomTalk had published a story mentioning that some Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 users are seeing “Get Jio Sim” screen on their smartphones. But then, when we tried, we didn’t see the same. Wondering why that’s the case, we tried around various methods and finally figured out that there’s an apparent bug on the MyJio app which lets you generate the coupon code required before going to a Reliance Digital store.
Please note that we are still not sure if Jio accepts this code to give the free SIM, but more often than not they only ask for the code screenshot, rather than the phone details.
So here’s what we did to get the “Get Jio Sim” button on My Jio app.
Step 1: Uninstall My Jio and other Jio apps if you have previously installed them
Step 2: Download the My Jio app again.
Step 3: Click on Install All button to download all the 10 Jio apps. Exit the My Jio app
Step 4: Disconnect your WiFi and Mobile data.
Step 5: Open My Jio app, and click on “Open” next to My Jio. It’d be throwing “No internet connection” error on top, but don’t care about it. It opens the Login screen, and there you’d see the Get Jio Sim button.
Step 6: Click on it, and it’d throw an error about internet not being available. At this point, switch back your WiFi and tap back to go to the login screen again.
Step 7: Now click on Get Jio Sim button and boom! It will show the preview offer screen and lets you generate the activation/offer code.
We have successfully tried this method on Redmi Note 3, Mi Max and OnePlus 3. It failed to work on the iPhone 6s though.
Alternatively, there is another method which involves downloading all the Jio apps, restart your device, wait for 5-10 minutes, turn on the data and open My Jio.
Both these methods seem like a bug in the My Jio app rather than a feature, but definitely not illegal. Officially though, the Jio Preview Offer with 3 months unlimited data, calls and entertainment services is open for Lyf and Samsung devices only, so the store guys might insist the offer code to be generated on these devices itself. But then, there are no technical limitations, as the Jio Sim offered for Samsung is already unlocked. So if you do manage to get the SIM activated, it should work just fine on any 4G and VoLTE enabled device.
Update: It works on ANY android phone, even those with no 4G (like Mi 4).
Update 2: We are hearing reports of the Jio Sims not being activated as the code is not generated from a Samsung phone. Better to wait for a day for things to get clear.
