How to Get Reliance Jio Welcome Offer on your Android Device?

Reliance Jio 4G is trending everywhere on News Media and Social Networks due to its Preview Offer of Unlimited Calls, SMS, and 4g Data for 90 Days for Lyf and Samsung Handset Users.


UPDATE 1st September 2016: Reliance Jio has launched officially and any 4G User can avail a sim and get Unlimited Calls and 4G Data until 31st December 2016.

The tariff plans for Reliance Jio are also super cheap. Check out the Complete List of Reliance Jio Official Tariff Plans.

Did you know that Jio has announced JioPhone, a feature phone that you can get with an effective cost of just Rs0? Using it you can do Unlimited Calls, SMS, and the Internet. It supports 4G VoLTE and has all Jio Services like JioTV, JioMusic, JioCinema, JioMags etc. It has NFC and you can use it to do payments. You can add your bank cards there too for instant payments. It also has interesting tariff plans. Check out JioPhone Features from Here.

However, recently many people became successful in getting Jio Sim for their Android Smartphones.

And this caused more hype, as most of us got confused how to do that.

I received a lot of messages from friends asking how to grab the Jio Preview Offer for their Android Device.

It was becoming impossible for me to chat personally with everyone and tell details.

Hence I am writing this blog post highlighting the article of getting a Jio Simcard for your Android Device.

This is not a regular blog post I usually write on HiTricks, and I would rather say it’s a ‘JUST-FOR-INFORMATION’ post written by me with real facts which I observed.

Disclaimer: Everything written in this post is just for the informational purpose, and it represents the facts we saw in reality. Whether you decide to follow this is up to you, I do not guarantee whether you will get it or not. Also, if you get into any troubles from this, I would not be responsible for it. Don’t blame me if anything goes wrong. I didn’t force you to follow it. Got it?

So, let’s proceed with the offer.

Download the MyJio App from Google Play.

Open App and it will show you a list of apps. Click Open on MyJio App.

Now you shall see a screen with the following options: Sign Up, Sign In and Get Jio Sim.

Click Get Jio Sim Option.

Follow the instructions there.

It will generate a barcode for you.

Take a screenshot of the barcode.

You are done. Skip the Unofficial Method and Proceed to Step 2 Below.

Google Play version fixed the bug. So download the old version of Jio from here.

Open App. You shall see a list of apps. Click Install All and Install All Apps one by one.

Now turn off the Internet. Open MyJio App.

From the list of apps, choose my Jio app.

Now you shall see a screen with the following options: Sign Up, Sign In and Get Jio Sim.

Turn on the Internet.

Click on Get Jio Sim.

Follow the instructions there.

It will generate a barcode for you.

Take a screenshot of the barcode.

You are done here. Proceed to step 2.

Step 2: Getting Documents Ready

This step is same for both Official and Unofficial Methods. Take Print out of the Barcode Screenshot.

Make xerox copies of your id proof and address proof. Any one of the Following Combinations will do:

  • Voter Id Card and Pan Card.
  • Voter Id Card and Aadhar Card.
  • Aadhar Card and Pan Card.

Take 2 Passport Size Color Photographs.

Now locate your nearest Jio Store from MyJio App (Or you can find any Reliance Digital or Reliance XPress Mini Store which you know)

Unofficial Method Users: Locate All your nearby stores and note down their locations. You may be going to need them :p

Step 3: Grabbing Reliance Jio Sim from Store

Official Method:

Visit your nearest Jio Store.

Just take your handset and show them your documents.

Relax! They will do everything and give you instructions about it. 🙂

You can proceed to Step 4 once you are done grabbing your Free Jio Sim Card.

Unofficial Method:

Disclaimer: Everything written here is just for the informational purpose, I am not responsible for any consequences. I am writing up just a feasible way to grab it, after confirming from users who got it unofficially. This is cheating Reliance, which isn’t good, and will I strongly suggest you don’t try this.

Visit your nearest Jio Store.

Give them documents with the barcode first and ask for the sim.

If they ask which phone you own, tell them the name of any supported Samsung Device.

If they ask to show the phone, say it’s not with you right now.

You can also say you forgot to bring it, or it’s with your Dad or makeup anything to manipulate them.

Make them believe that you own a supported device.

If they ask your phone bill or phone IMEI you are finished there.

Just take about turn and visit the next nearby store on your list and try the same.

There are a lot of stores you can try until you finally obtain a sim card.

Remember, always give them real documents for your sim. Don’t give fake details; your sim may get blocked.

Step 4: Activating your Reliance Jio Sim Card

Now that you have got your sim card, you can just proceed to activate it.

Open MyJio App and Install all apps which are shown there. If you already installed then ignore this.

Now wait for the Tele-verification SMS you get on your secondary number which you submitted to Jio Store. It will tell you that your sim card is now active and ready for Tele-verification.

The Tele-verification SMS takes at most 48 hours to receive. So kindly wait for it.

Now you can proceed to insert the sim card in your device. Make sure you put it into your Sim Slot 1.

After you switch it on, you shall see Jio Network Signal Bars. If you don’t see it, something is abnormal, check FAQ Section below for details.

Once you see Jio Network signals, turn Jio Internet On.

Now Open JioJoin App. It may show you some permissions to accept. Accept them.

Now it will ask you for verifying your Jio Sim. Click on it to start testing your sim.

It will automatically verify it and activate Jio Services on your device.

It may fail verification or tell you that you are not eligible for the offer if you use different device generated barcode in your mobile. So always use the barcode generated from your mobile.

Now Call 1977 using the JioJoin App while mobile data is still on.

If your phone supports VoLTE feature, then you can use your default phone dialer to call the number. However, if your phone doesn’t support VoLTE feature, you need to use the JioJoin app to make the call.

Televerify your sim. They will ask you to enter last four digits of your Id Card. Enter it.

Now you will get internet settings delivered to your mobile.

You will also get a bunch of SMS and emails with your subscription details.

Congrats your sim is now active.

Note that for making calls you need to use the VoLTE Feature. If your phone supports it, you can use the default dialer to make calls; else you need to use the JioJoin App.

While making calls make sure your internet data is on.

Now open MyJio App. In the Sign In / Sign Up option, Sign up for a new account.

Now Clear Data of All Jio Apps installed on your device including MyJio. [This Step is IMPORTANT to get Unlimited Offer]

You will also get 90 Days Free usage of all other Jio Apps. Make sure you try them out.

Frequently Asked Questions:

These are the list of questions I received from friends. I am trying to answer them to the best of my knowledge.

Note: This list is still growing. I will add up more questions if I get any from people, and try to respond them.

Q: Is the unofficial method illegal?

A: In my opinion, No, only if you got the barcode on your device. It’s a bug from Jio’s end, not yours. But well, as far as getting sim is concerned, you need to tell lies to Reliance about your owning a Samsung Device. So, what will you call it? Legal or Illegal? I guess both words are unsuitable here. It’s somewhat in between.

Q: I Generated Code by Changing IMEI. What to do?

A: Well, The Jio Sim can only be activated on the phone which generated the Bar Code. So don’t try on other phones, you will waste time. It won’t work.

If you have generated code by changing IMEI, then try the sim on that device and see if it activates. It should activate if you still have the same changed IMEI.

Q: I bought barcode from other sellers. Can I activate it on my device?

A: No you can’t. You need the original device on which the barcode was generated to activate it. Yes, it’s full-stop.

Q: I got SMS from Operator about Tele-verification. But I do not see any Network Bars in my Device. What to do?

A: Is your phone 4g? Jio Sim requires your phone to be able to support 4g. Then only you can see the network bars. It won’t work on 3g or 2g handsets.

If your phone is 4g, and still not got network, kindly restart device.

Update: Some users also reported that it took a few hours to see the signal bars even after getting the tele-verification sms. So, I would like to request you to kindly wait for at least a day.

Q: I generated a barcode on a 3g or 2g Android Device. Can I activate it?

A: Absolutely No. You must need a 4g device for activation. Because without 4g, the device can’t use the VoLTE feature for calling.

Q: Is VoLTE Compulsory for my device to support? My phone doesn’t support VoLTE Feature. Can I still use the Jio Sim?

A: Yes. You can. As long as you have a 4g supported device, you can use it.

Q: My Device Supports VoLTE. What extra advantages do I get more than the other regular 4g users?

A: Well, VoLTE supports for Voice over LTE (or 4g network). If your phone supports VoLTE, then calling clarity will be better, and overall experience will be better and fast.

However, note that if your phone does not support VoLTE, you can still use Jio on it. The JioJoin App can make any 4g enabled device to support VoLTE.

Q: Can I use the sim card in other phones after activating?

A: If you have other 4g phones, you can use it. However, you need to activate it first from the original device which generated the code.

Q: I have Lyf Handset, and I activated Reliance Jio Sim using it. Can I use the sim in my other phones?

A: Yes, if your other phones are 4g enabled. 

As reported by an user Harsh Arora, you can’t use it on other devices. 🙁 Sorry.

Q: More than 48 hours have passed. Still, I didn’t get any activation message. What to do?

A: Wait for more 48 hours. If still not got then Contact the Store you grabbed your sim card from. I can’t help. Either they did something wrong, or you are unlucky. But you should get activated within that time.

Q: Is this preview offer officially available on Apple Devices or Redmi Note 3? Many people were saying so.

A: No, again I am saying, No. The preview offer as of now is only available to Lyf Handsets and the list of devices I gave above. For other devices, you need to use the unofficial method to grab it.

Q: My network speed is too weak. How to increase Speed?

A: First check your location. Try moving to different areas. Mostly this issue is caused by weak network at your location. It should work fine in the major cities.

Well, another thing is VoLTE Supported Phones and the phones which catch all bandwidths of the 4g network in India shall experience better speeds. (Like OnePlus 3, Mi 5, etc.)

But if your speeds are in kbps, then you need to try some different locations.

Q: My Torrent Speeds are too low.

A: Its normal. Torrent speeds are boosted by peers given by Wired Broadband Internet. The wireless networks can never give fast torrent speeds even if there is a lot of seeders. So either you need to download torrents from a Broadband network or download directly from the web, not torrents.

Q: I have generated a barcode using fake IMEI Method. Will it work on my VoLte Supported mobile, If I put that sim on it with its original IMEI. (I’m Non Rooted User)?

A: Well, as you have a VoLTE Supported device, I am hoping it will work. But I am not sure of it. Please experiment it yourself and see if it works. Let me know in the comments whether it worked or not, so that I can update my post accordingly.

Q: Can I obtain Two Sim cards from the same document?

A: Yes. You can. There are no per person limitations for grabbing the sim card. As long as you have the barcode, you can grab it.

Q: Will this Sim work on 4g Modems or 4g Dongles?

A: No. It won’t. Sorry. This sim card only works via the Jio apps on an android device.

Q: Reliance Store is asking for IMEI or Phone Bill. What to do?

A: Simply come back and go to a new store. That store won’t give you sim card.

Q: Can I give fake phone bill?

A: I strongly recommend NO. That’s riskier. You are submitting a fake document here. It’s totally cheating and may bring bad consequences. Don’t do it. Instead you may want to visit other stores.

Q: I am still getting 2GB Data. How to make it Unlimited?

A: Check post again. I have written it in Step 4.

Q: What is the price of one Jio Sim?

A: Its Free of Cost. You just need to show the Barcode to avail the offer.

Q: When will Jio support other devices officially?

A: As of now there is no update about this, but maximum it will launch by 2 months from now.

Q: Hi. I got only 2 GB Data even after following all your procedures. What to do to get Unlimited?

A: Try any one of 3 approaches:

1. Install all jio apps. Install old myjio apk. Signup. Clear all jio apps data. Sign in.


2. Open My Jio App. click Top Left Menu. Get Customer Care no. Call Customer Care. They will manually activate the offer. Else, if they ask for IMEI no, you are finished, you won’t get it. Bad luck 🙁 But if they don’t ask for IMEI no, you will successfully get it directly by them 🙂


3. Wait for a week. You will automatically get an sms from jio, that will tell you to click a link to avail the preview offer. [I got this sms exactly after 4 days of activating my jio sim.] It comes automatically.

Hope this helps. 🙂

Have more questions? Don’t hesitate to put them in the comments section. I will respond them and also try to put it in the FAQ Section if its important.

  26. Hello,
    I got one sim on 25th aug for my oneplus 3. They said there is no requirement of barcode for oneplus 3 and they gave me one jio sim and till today on 5th sept it is not activated.
    What would be the problem..?
    One of my friend with samsung phone got sim a day before with barcode n all n it is now activated.
    The store i got sim said it would be activated in 4 days. I visited store after 4 days he said “abhi 3-4 din aur lagenge”. Now it’s almost 10 days and yet it is not activated. 5th sept, jio is going live for all. Will I be getting my sim activated?

    • Hi, the reason for delay is not because of your device. Its because there is a huge queue of sim card processing. They are working day and night to televerify each sim. Give them some time. At least 2 weeks now they are taking. Fingers crossed. You have got sim you will get it activated very soon. Don’t worry.

    3. Access To Unlimited SMS (Limited to 100 per day by TRAI).
    4. Access To Premium Jio apps.
    5. No Roaming charges.
    6. 25% Extra Data for Students.
    7. No Blackout Days.

    So I would suggest all to take this benefits and enjoy Jio for 3 months.

    I don’t say leave Idea, Vodafone but I think most of the people have got Old Reliance 2G or GSM Sim. Port them to Jio 4G and take the benefits!

    • Hello, kindly wait for a few more days. There is a huge queue for televerification. It can take up to 2 weeks. Rest assured you got the sim some day it will be avtivated. Many people haven’t got the sim yet. So kindly wait. Hope you understand. Thanks.

  61. My jio sim has not activated since it took 5 days and it is showing emergency calls only what to do??

    • Well, I am trying to tell you the reason. Recently there has been a huge demand for jio sim cards. Per day around 150-200 jio sim cards are sold per reliance shop. So, they have to manually process all the documents, which is kinda time-taking job. So, there may be a huge delay in the activation. Kindly get in touch with the reliance shop you purchased the sim from and they will help you out. Thanks.

  62. Hi guys i got jio sim for oneplus x. Store people just ask phone bill. If you provide they will generate code in store itself and they provide u sim..and this is done in some stores only..

  63. Air i generated the code on my zuk z1 and failed to buy the my code has expired… Can i use this code still?

  64. I have got the jio sim but they didn’t ask for the barcode at xpress digital store(and I didn’t even had any) so I wanted to ask will I be able to get the preview offer or not. My phone is Asus ZenFone 2 ZE551ML

  65. sir i have samsung j3 (2016) .and i am not getting ” get jio sim ” option in my jio app..what i do.whenever i try to contact jio helpline number always goes busy…and when i go reliance digital mini store they says come with barcode…otherwise we can not give you jio sim …

    …is samsung j3 (2016 )not wor with my jio app..

    • Hi, Kindly wait for a few days, the myjio app will be updated and you can see the get jio sim option there. 🙂
      Also in a week or two they will start giving sim without bar codes for any 4g phone (like in kolkata we will be getting sim without barcode for all 4g phones from monday onwards in 3-4 stores i contacted, so I will be grabbing it for all my 4g phones). So, kindly wait for it.

  66. After 3 days of getting jio sim..
    But it is not activated till now ,what to do any suggestions. …..

    • NO, kindly wait for a week. Now there is a huge demand for sim cards, per day 150-200 sim cards are sold per shop. So it is taking time to verify all sim cards one by one… Hope you understand the reason for the late response.

  67. bro… I’ve jst recieved one message saying ” We have recieved ur application” from jio… one day ago…. but no tele verification message after that 🙁 should i wait or contact the jio office?

  72. sir i have samsung j3 phone and reliance jio also listed Samsung j3 for preview offer still i am not getting get sim option on myjio app. plz help .

    • Hi, Please wait for a few days, the MyJio App will get updated and then you can generate the bar code and grab a sim. Or, you can simply visit the Reliance store and tell them to do it for you. Thanks.

  73. its been 30hrs my sim is activated but its not showing signal bars 🙁 yu yureka

  74. Hi Nirmal,I am an HTC user.I have downloaded the same my jio app which u have provided above.The old version.But I am un able to install it.It asks me ” do you want to install an update to this exixting app.down I have cancel and install option.When I click on install it says app not installed..can you kindly help me .What might have went wrong?

  77. Hi Nirmal ,

    Such a Wonderful article , Very briefly written article available on Internet for Jio Sim cards . Thanks you so much writing this .

    I got the SIM using your unofficial trick on Redmi Note 3 today. I’m waiting for activation . How long it will take to activate ?

    • Hi, Thanks a lot for the appreciation. It means a lot to me.
      Well, currently, there is a huge queue of getting jio sim cards, so, you won’t probably get it activated instantly. Kindly wait 2-4 days, it will be activated.
      Rest assured, you have the sim now, just wait and you will get access to the Jio Network soon. Thanks.

      • It’s my pleasure to appreciate your time to help others . Actually I got this sim in Trivandrum ( For TVM users : Vazuthacaud next to geethanjali ENT hospital ) . They said it will be activated before evening or tomorrow morning . Will I expect the same Nirmal

  78. Hi! I I bought the jio sim from the shop and I also got the verification for activation, but I’m still not getting the network signal. Been 2 days now.
    P.S – in using a MOTOX XT-1053 (got this phone from the USA) but it’s a 4G phone.
    Any idea why is it not working?

    • Hi, this is unfortunate and highly unexpected. I would request you to kindly contact Jio customer care or visit a Reliance Digital store to resolve the issue directly from them. Thanks. 🙂

  91. Hi bro , i ve generated a barcode on my xiaomi mi4i mobile and i want jio sim to worm on that only.. Since the offer is valid for samsung devices luckily i ve that eligible samsung device of my friend too . Problem is digital express store guys are asking for an samsung device wherein theu want to note its imei no. The problem is when they note that imei no. Does the sim which ill be getting work on my device? Or providing imei no.of samsung device may be risky or not let it work??

    • It isn’t risky at all or stop your sim from working. You just show the samsung phone and imei of that phone and collect sim and then use that phone to activate sim card. After activation, remove the sim and use in your 4g phone. 🙂

      • Hi Nirmal are u facing any problem with call? In my case once i reboot my phone i can make one call and after that it shows busy …….. All the time.. what to do ?any sol?..

  107. When i go ti store they ask about phone whewhere i obtain my barcode …I said I didn’t bring it .. As her expression I realise that she is not caring about Lyk or samsung phone ..Maybe she just need imei no. and even that i time the barcode is generating in Myjio app without any trick ….Should i try again and hand over my CPN3P to her ??

  108. I am buy sim card on redmi prime 2 from old apk and now waiting for activation so bro, i have lenovo a6000plus so what i do ? Means try to active in redmi or my Lenovo?

  109. Hi
    I generated the bar code on a moto g4 and went to the store and turns out they were aware of the bug and were asking for the device on which I got the barcode I said s6 edge but they insisted on confirming before giving me a bad luck I went to 3 stores the same thing happened…BTW I also have a lyf wind 4 and it came with a sim…so what if I remove my Jio sim …root the device ..make its imei same as of g4 and then take the barcode and ask them that give me a sim for my lyf.mobilre.

    • Hi. You can surely try that. But I am not sure whether it will be successful or not, as you are the first one who reported this kind of method. Nobody tried it before. So try and see. I can’t assure you about it. Thanks. 🙂

  110. i am not get pop up submit button what will i do.
    please help me o got only 2gb data

    • Try any one of 3 approaches:

      1. Install all jio apps. Install old myjio apk. Signup. Clear all jio apps data. Signin.


      2. Open My Jio App. click Top Left Menu. Get Customer Care no. Call Customer Care. They will manually activate the offer. Else, if they asks for imei no, you are finished, you won’t get it. Bad luck 🙁 But if they don’t ask for imei no, you will successfully get it directly by them 🙂


      3. Wait for a week. You will automatically get an sms from jio, that will tell you to click a link to avail the preview offer. [I got this sms exactly after 4 days of activating my jio sim.] It comes automatically.

      Hope this helps. 🙂

      • can you tell me the link. submit button not appear i tried 7 8 times uninstall and install all apps and sign in but i m not succeed to getting submit button

  111. Wonderful , before visiting this site I had all steps and I had 2 gb data only .. clearing data of jio apps works perfectly. I am using HTC one me .. code generated in asus ZenFone5 and activated same mobile .

    • No Lyf handset jio sims won’t work on other phones. This is specially for lyf handsets. Their sim cards are working in a different way which is preventing this. Sorry, you can’t use. 🙁

  113. Thnx Brother i got the sim but the concern is i got the barcode from my frnd… So will it work if i activate it using lyf phone

  114. I genrated code from redmi note 3 and when asked for imie i have given gf samsung a5 imie to theam which is from pakistan so can able to use the sim in my redmi note 3 or i have to change the imie no.. Of the phone for activating it.. I purely genrated code from my redmi note3 but they ask for imie no.. From every single coustmer so i am asking will my trick work or not..
