When Reliance announced their jio services to public earlier this month, they said that the services will be free till the end of this year, which is making every user rush to their nearest Reliance Digital stores to grab a SIM card.
While the free 4G data and voice calling benefits are not to be missed, the actual issues start once consumers get their hands on a Jio 4G SIM card.
The SIM card won't be activated for a while. In our case, it nearly took three to four weeks for activation. This wasn't mentioned in the speech of Mukesh Ambani during the Annual General Meeting (2016), where he claimed that the Jio SIM card can be activated within 15 minutes.
You are lucky if you managed to get your hands on a Jio SIM card in the first two weeks, because Reliance stores and other retail shops have now stopped issuing the SIM cards to everyone because of the overwhelming response.
Meanwhile, if you got the Reliance Jio SIM card but are still waiting for the activation to be done? Here are the five signs, which shows your Jio SIM is activated.
Check for the Signal
This is the easiest way to check whether a SIM card is activated or not. Keep a track of your mobile signals to check whether your SIM card is activated or not.
Mobile Data Works
Secondly, check your internet connection. Try to disable your Wi-Fi connection and open some web pages or installed applications to check whether your SIM card is activated or not.
Activation Message to Alternate Number
At the time of receiving your SIM card, the store authorities must have asked for your alternate mobile number. So, whenever your SIM card is activated, you will receive a message saying that your SIM card is now activated.
Call 1977 for Tele-Verification
You will get a message on your alternate mobile number asking you to call on 1977 for tele-verifications. This suggests that your Jio SIM card is ready for activation. Post tele-verification, you can enjoy the free benefits on Reliance Jio SIM card
