Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani making important announcements on Reliance Jio mobile services during RIL Annual General Meeting on Thursday.
Reliance Jio’s announcement on September 1, 2016 shook the telecom companies in India. Not because of the fact that Jio will offer lowest 4G data at Rs50/GB, but for voice calls on Jio that are free for life. Now Jio is available for everyone.
So, if you want a Reliance Jio connection without giving up your existing mobile number, here’s how you can port your number to Reliance Jio.
Step 1: Send the following text message – PORT followed by your 10-digit mobile number to TRAI’s central number for mobile number portability – 1900. Example: Send ‘PORT 98xxxxxx98’ to 1900. You’ll receive an SMS back with a Port out code.
Step 2: Download the Jio App bundle on your Android Smartphone and generate an offer code.
Step 3: Get yourself a Jio SIM. You can walk into any Reliance Digital Xpress and Reliance Digital Xpress mini stores and provide them with an eKYC verification via your Aadhar Card number and get a Jio SIM. Provide the person assisting you with your port out code.
Step 4: Settle any remaining payment of your old telecom provider and seamlessly get your number ported to Reliance Jio.
And then just sit back, relax and enjoy the 4G digital revolution.
