Reliance Jio is all set to launch commercially and will be soon available to the public, but that’s not stopping them from coming up with new ways to tap into new users. Previously, we have seen how the company is offering 4G LTE speeds for comparatively less price, and it also introduced MNP service which could also get them more users. They are also bundled free Jio SIM cards with the LYF smartphones. They already have over 7,00,000 users even without launching officially in India.
And until now, the SIM cards were not readily available to everyone but after announcing the SIM supported for Samsung smartphones, the company is apparently trying to get more users by offering a Preview offer code for all the Android users. According to the sources, it is possible to install the My Jio app now on any Android smartphone and get a preview offer code. We tested this initially on the HTC 10 smartphone, and it worked perfectly, so did on other few smartphones like OnePlus 3, etc.
So here’s what we did to get the Preview offer code on My Jio app.
- Uninstall all the Jio apps if you have installed any of them previously.
- Now download the My Jio App again.
- Click on Install all, and install all the ten apps. Once done, exit the app now.
- Disconnect your Wi-Fi and mobile data.
- Now open the app and click open on My Jio to see “No network connection” prompt on top. Ignoring that you can also see “Get Jio SIM” button.
- Click on it to see “No network” prompt again. At this point, go back and toggle your Wi-Fi or Mobile Data on.
- Now when you click the button, you will see Preview Offer code instruction.
- Follow them to get the code and proceed further by submitting your documents etc.
Note, that this method works for almost all the smartphones if followed correctly. And it when we say all the smartphones, we mean the ones included without 4G as well. So basically almost any smartphone running Android is eligible for this preview offer. Various reports are claiming that this is a bug in their Jio application. But this is not illegal by any means. So one need not worry about any of it and proceed with this if he/she wishes to.
What’s in it for Reliance
Well, it is clear that at this point, the company wants more and more new users to join their network. Offering 4G LTE speeds for comparatively less price and now this, all these promising offers on free usage, etc. will definitely get more attention. Also, if you noticed, the procedure involves the users to install all the ten application from Jio as well. So indirectly, they are also getting more users to use these apps as well. All these services are not bad by any means, but after all, they are all just value added services that users may or may not use. So now if you manage to get your SIM activated, then you can use the Jio services with all their promotional offers. Let us know if this worked for you and would you be interested in switching from your current carrier to Jio.
Note: We have started getting a lot of updates/reports stating that, this offer is not valid, and the Reliance Store is asking the users to return the SIM card back. However, on the other hand, many of them have managed to get the SIM successfully with the above procedure. Here are some proof to back it-
So stay tuned for more info on that. But if you want to be sure and avoid all the confusion, you can still get the Jio SIM cards and enjoy these offers, if you buy one of the eligible Samsung smartphones. Click here to know more about that offer in detail which is still valid.
