Reliance Jio To Offer Free SIM With Every Smartphone Purchase Over Rs. 10,000
The highly anticipated launch of Reliance Jio 4G services is just around the corner (expected to be launched on August 15th). As India embraces the commercial launch of the services of the world’s largest start-up, we have some good news for you. Reliance Jio is planning to offer free Jio 4G SIM to anyone who purchases smartphone costing Rs. 10,000 and above.
Earlier, Jio connections were available on an invite basis only to the friends and families of Jio’s employees. The company later offered this to anyone who registered interest in testing their 4G network on Jio’s website. All those testers had to buy LFY smartphones to use Jio 4G free for 90 days under the ‘Jio Preview’ offer.
Under this preview offer, the users were offered unlimited 4G data, unlimited video calls and SMS, 4500 minutes of voice calls, and free access to Jio’s premium services ranging from cloud storage to security to media streaming and live TV.
Recently, this preview offer was extended to users having select Samsung smartphones including Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge Plus, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy Note 5 / Note 5 Duos, Galaxy Note 4 Galaxy A8, Galaxy A5 2015 and A5 2016 and Galaxy A7 2015 and A7 2016.
Jio also extended the Jio Preview offer to HP users who were offered to buy ‘JioFi 2’ hotspot device at a subsidized price of just Rs. 2,899.
According to a latest report, Jio would be offering free Jio SIM (under Jio Preview Offer) to all who buy new smartphones costing above Rs. 10,000. This offer would be made available around this weekend, near the expected commercial launch of Jio 4G.
“We have news from our sources that a Jio SIM can soon be availed by anyone with a new smartphone costing over Rs 10,000. The offer will be available around the weekend leading to Independence Day. The other perks of the preview offer may still be applicable for the new SIM where users can access unlimited data and calls for 90 days,” reports Aditya Shenoy of Pricebaba.com.
It is not clear whether the phone need to be specifically purchased from Reliance Digital Stores or not. However, we think, it might be valid on new mobile purchases only in Reliance Digital Stores.
LYF Smartphone Users Can Now Use Their Jio SIM On Any Device
It has been reported that Jio 4G SIM bundled with LYF smartphones are locked to the device only for a period of 90 days. This means if you have been using a LYF smartphone for more than 90 days, then you would be able to use your Jio SIM on any device of your choice now.
Well, these is all about Jio that we have at the moment. Stay tuned on Trak.in for updates.
