Update (August 24, 2016) – Reliance now extends its Jio Preview offer for Asus and Panasonic Smartphone users.
Earlier this year, Reliance Jio was the most awaited network as it promised to provide more and more benefits to user on its 4G network. Within last couple of month, Reliance Jio has been one of the most talked topic on the Internet. Reliance Jio is currently in testing phase, so company wanted to expand its network and it latest LYF series of smartphones. Reliance is currently providing three months of unlimited 4G internet, call, SMS and access to Jio premium services in its ‘Preview Offer’.
At First, Jio Sim was only available for Reliance employees and people who are referred by employees. Later company bundled with Reliance’s LYF series of smartphones that if you purchase a Lyf smartphone (ranges from Rs.3,000 to 20,000), you will also get Reliance Jio Sim with unlimited data and calls.
Recently, Samsung smartphones users can generate a code using MyJio App and walk-in to any Reliance Digital stores and get a Jio SIM for free. Last week, this offer was extended to more Samsung smartphones and some LG smartphones.
Now, we at PaidFreeDroid confirmed from Reliance that any 4G smartphone owner can walk-in to Reliance Digital or Xpress Mini stores with ID proof & two passport-size photographs and get a Reliance Jio SIM with the Jio Preview offer that gives three months of unlimited internet, calling, SMS and access to Jio premium services.
The problem comes here because this offer is available only in select Reliance Digital stores. Why select? Because Reliance has only passed this latest news to select stores only. So if your local Reliance store is not providing you a Reliance Jio SIM on your non-Lyf, non-Samsung, non-LG smartphone, this means that store is still unaware of latest news that Reliance Jio is available to anyone. The store may provide the Sim after few days because Reliance is currently spreading this news across all stores in India. Till then you can just walk-in to any other Reliance Digital or Xpress Mini stores to avail the offer.
Reliance Jio is expected to do a commercial launch of its network in the coming months, most probably in Q4 according to our statistics. In a recent telecom meetup with JD Deepak, Telecom Secretary, Mukesh Ambani discussed about rollout plans for Reliance Jio. So this can be indication of commercial launch of Reliance Jio.
