Many people who have managed to get a Reliance Jio 4G SIM are facing a great delay in the activation of the SIM card. The issue is due to the huge load in the system as there is a great demand for the Jio SIM.
Users looking for Jio SIM are facing two issues right now. One is that they are not able to get the Jio SIM and the other problem is those who have got one are facing a great delay in getting it activated.
There is frustration among users for Jio SIM and SIM activation. Jio has announced the Aadhar based eKYC verification process that will activate the SIM in just 15 minutes. Despite this effort, Jio is taking over 10 days to activate the new 4G SIM cards. Take a look at eight possible fixes to get the Jio SIM activated soon.
If you haven't got a Reliance Jio SIM, you can wait for the eKYC activation to be made available in the nearest Jio Store. This way, you need not wait for a long time to get the SIM activated.

If you have got both the Jio SIM and the order SMS, you need to dial 1977 from a VoLTE enabled phone or 1800-890-1977 from an alternate number asnd enter the last 4 digits of the documents you have submitted. This is for data activation. For voice service activation, you must call 1977 from a VoLTE phone or use the JioJoin app and enter the last 4 digits of the documents. This way, you will get the SMS confirmation instantly.
