Reliance Jio

Today among smartphone consumers in India, Reliance JIO is a word that resonates with all the 4G smartphone users in the country. The telecom giant was not only able to capture the attention of mobile consumers but also the other telecom players in the country, namely Airtel, Idea and Vodafone.

The new numbers that are coming in from a trusted source states that currently there are more than 6 Million live users on Reliance Jio 4G connection. Additionally, it is noted that there is a fair number of users who are still waiting to get their SIM cards activated because of the surge of people who have applied for JPO.

Show your 4G Enabled Smartphone & Get a Free JIO 4G SIM Card from Today

As Reliance pushed JIO 4G services via Jio Preview Offer that is now extended to more than a dozen smartphone brands as a partner offer. It was quite obvious that people would que up at Reliance Digital stores and Xpress mini stores to get their free SIM card by showing their eligible handsets from the likes of Samsung, LG, ASUS, Gionee, Micromax, YU, etc.

In the wake of this surge, Reliance JIO would stop issuing new SIM cards for next 4-5 days at their official and third-party authorised stores across the country. As the backlog numbers are huge because they need to be authenticated and verified with proper scrutiny. This information comes from authorised Reliance JIO retailers, while it could be possible that you might be able to get SIM cards at some selected stores.

Mukesh Ambani to Announce Reliance JIO 4G Commercial Launch on September 1st – Reports

Unconfirmed Reports: The whole reason to stop issuing SIM cards for the small period is because the company is targeting to complete the activation of pending SIM cards before the AGM (Annual General Meeting) on September 1st. Moreover, the telecom firm is expecting to increase the active user up to 10 Million before the investors and shareholders meeting, which would be led by Mukesh Ambani.

It is quoted by our source that company is planning to increase the active users up to 50 million by this year’s end.

    True that there is a huge demand, but they surely underestimated the demand and that has caused the backlogs. Sad to hear that they won’t issue sim cards for next few days.

    • Dominic Dmello

      Today I got my Jio sim &was informed 7 to 10,days for activation.

      • Nebu Cherian

        So that shows the huge demand for the sim and the backlogs they have before giving new connections.

  • Gopal Mondal

    It is very sad to say though I purchased the set with jio connection it is merely luck to make a call, always it answered that all lines in this route are busy. How funny. If by chance you get the call my advise to buy a lottery ticket on that day.

    • Yes, Jio needs to address this first!

    • Diganta Choudhury

      Just turn on and off your phone’s aeroplane mode and call again, you’ll see the magic

  • 50 millions in 4 months.. can be achieved if they manage to issue Jio SIM cards timely.. πŸ™‚

  • I am not worried about the demand or backlogs much here… but I am definitely worried if Reliance Jio network has enough bandwidth to support such a huge number… Will the 4G come down to 2G?

    • harshad gokhale

      bro reliance jio only works on 4g frequencies there are no 2g bands

      • Ha ha ha… Assess the depth of the statement sir!!!
        I meant speed will come down… It was sarcasm… πŸ™‚

    This is a misleading news. I got a sim card today in the morning. But I got this notification from Phoneradar about this article and it provoked me to write this comment. Please verify your source.
