The Reliance Jio 4G SIM is creating waves of excitement among the consumers and everyone is trying to get one for themselves. The main reason is the Preview Offer that provides free and unlimited 4G data, calls and SMS for 90 days.
Earlier, Reliance Jio SIM cards were available only with the LYF mobiles and now Reliance has joined hands with many manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Asus, Panasonic, and others. This way, the users of any 4G smartphone from these companies will get a Jio SIM card and they are eligible to enjoy the benefits of the Preview Offer.
The only catch is that if you use the Jio SIM card on one phone you shouldn't change it for 90 days to continue enjoying the Preview Offer. If you want to change the phone during this period, you can do so with a simple trick. Take a look at the steps to use the Jio SIM card in any other mobile.
Here are the requirements to use the Jio SIM in any mobile
You will need a Jio SIM card, the IMEI number of the smartphone it was used in, a rooted Android device with support to 4G LTE, and Xposed IMEI Changer app.
The Android device should be rooted
The device that you like to use the Reliance Jio 4G SIM card with should be rooted and it should support 4G LTE connectivity. Only then, you will be able to enjoy the super fast 4G speed that the Jio network offers you.
Install the Xposed Installer and IMEI Changer apps
Once you have the rooted device ready, you need to install the Xposed Installer app. Then, downloaded the Xposed Installer and IMEI Changer apps in it.
Enable the modules
Then, go to the Xposed Installer and Activate Framework and click on Modules. Over here, you need to check the IMEI Changer Pro app to enable it.
Play with the IMEI number
Then, open the app on your mobile and entry the IMEI number of the device you were using the Jio SIM card in the app. Click on Apply. You need to replace the last three digits of the IMEI number with any three digit random number.
Reboot the device
Switch off your phone and insert the Jio SIM card in the Slot 1 and restart the device. Now, you can see that the Jio SIM card is active in the other device.
Troubleshooting might be needed
If you don't get signal in the device, you need to head onto Settings → Mobile Networks → Network Operators → Search Manually → Choose Reliance Jio. Then, go to Settings → More → Mobile Networks →Access Point Names → Create New APN with a name and the APN should be Jionet. Leave the rest blank.
LTE Only mode should be selected
Choose the LTE Only mode from Mobile Networks and turn on the data services. You can enjoy unlimited 4G data in any Android phone with this trick.
