Mobile Number Portability (MNP) for Jio 4G Prepaid & Postpaid Coming Soon



Reliance’s 4G LTE network, Jio is yet to be launched commercially but it already has a user base of more than 1.5 million, thanks to the LYF smartphones. Though it seems huge, the company has actually expected to have a minimum user base of 5 million by the time of launch. Since the Jio 4G is said to be publicly available from August 15th, the company is working hard to increase its users base as much as possible. The Jio Preview Offer which is only limited to LYF smartphones was recently made available for selected Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

If the leaks are to be believed, the Apple and HP users will also be eligible to get the free Jio 4G SIM with preview offer including unlimited usage of 4G data and voice calls. As of now, the voice calling on Jio seems to be a bigger problem than the network fluctuation. Even the SIM cards aren’t available in most of the locations and the company is working on expanding its distribution network to solve this issue. On 15th August, we may not see a pan India of Jio 4G as it is facing issues in Rajasthan, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

To increase its user base, Jio will be bringing the Mobile Number Portability (MNP) so that user can change their network and can still retain their number. The Apple – Jio Preview is said to be put on hold as the iPhones doens’t support dual SIMs. The current users of Jio preview offer are using the Jio 4G SIM as their secondary SIM and by launching the MNP option we can see even more usage. Last month, Reliance had also lowered the prices of its LYF smartphones as low as Rs. 2,999.

Airtel and Idea are already offering 40% – 50% more data while Vodafone is also said to announce their new plans. By rolling out the MNP, we can see many more changes in the Indian telecom industry. As of now the Jio 4G is available only in prepaid and on August 15th, the company will come with few postpaid plans as well. The Jio 4G postpaid plans will offer 4-5 times more data than other along with unlimited voice calls and SMS. We hope the company fixes its network issues before the August launch and the MNP option will be made available in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more updates!
