Are you using a Jio Sim? Did you know that you can set your favorite music as CallerTune for your Jio Number? That too for free of cost? Yes, Jio has a service called the JioTunes service that allows any Jio user to choose his CallerTune. This is given as a complimentary benefit to all Jio Users for being on the network.
For almost a year, Jio has launched its free services in India. It is offering Free Calls, Free SMS, and Free High-Speed 4G Data via its Happy New Year Offer, something which no other telecom company has ever given to us.
From 15th April Onwards, the Jio service is no longer a free service. But it remains a cheaper than the existing telecom operator rates. Users can avail the Jio Prime service and which gives them the extra privilege to continue the unlimited calls and the Internet from the Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan Offer.
UPDATE 15th JULY: JIO HAS EXTENDED THEIR DHAN DHANA DHAN OFFER FOR 3 MORE MONTHS. CLICK HERE TO READ.
But, well, the good news is that the JioTunes service is still available which is completely Free of Cost. You can easily set your favorite songs as caller tune using this service.
Let’s look into the features of this service.
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.
