As you know Reliance Jio Phone is not giving you the Direct Access of Activating the Jio Phone Wi-Fi Hotspot to share Internet Connection. But you have seen many of Youtube videos over the Internet showing you that you can activate Jio Phone Hotspot but let me tell you that all those videos are showing fake step to activate WiFi Hotspot in your Jio Phone. So in this post I will discuss in details about how they used to trick users by showing the activation of Hotspot in Jio Phone. And what fake process they are following in their Youtube videos to activate there Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jio Phone. And that’s not all I will also discuss about how you can activate WiFi Hotspot in your Jio Phone or oven you can expect this option officially announced by Reliance Jio.

So now let’s discuss about those fake Youtube videos where they are showing that how you can activate Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone?

First Trick to Connect Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jiophone:

1st trick to connect wi fi hotspot in jiophone

As I have checked in one of the very popular video in Youtube Channel and they are showing that you can share your Internet Connection through Jio Phone’s Bluetooth. Let me discuss in detail how they are actually doing it by using your Jio Phones Bluetooth Connection. You know that many of the smart Phones support sharing Internet Connection through Bluetooth. In that process you just need to check on the Internet sharing option while connecting to a Bluetooth. So by using this feature many of the Youtubers are tricking peoples that you can connect Wi-Fi Hotspot using the same process. So what they actually do is, They put the name of their Jio Phone in their other Smart Phone’s Bluetooth settings and then they share the Wi-Fi Hotspot off that Smartphone. But now in Youtube video, they are just showing a Jio Phone with activating the Bluetooth option from the settings of Jio Phone and then at the time of connecting the Bluetooth Connection, they connect to the previously activated Smartphone’s Bluetooth Connection because the Internet activation checkbox is there. But let me tell you, this is totally faking the people. Because in Jio Phone you can’t share your Internet Connection through Bluetooth. If you enable the Bluetooth and try to connect that Bluetooth Connection from another Android device, you will not get the checkbox of connecting Internet through that Bluetooth mode. So this is one of the trick by using what people are faking others by saying that you can connect Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone.

Second Trick to Connect Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jiophone:

2nd trick to activate wi fi hotspot in jiophone

Now let’s discuss about the second trick of some very famous Youtubers saying how to activate Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jio Phone… So in the 2nd trick they are saying that firstly you need to go to the settings of your Jio Phone and then you will get the option of Wi-Fi, so you need to enter in that Wi-Fi option and then you have to scroll down a bit until you get the option of advanced settings. Now in the advanced settings, you need to go to the manage networks option and now you will get another option which is called join hidden network. Now this simply shows you to Enter your network name in SSID network name section and then put your Security Mode of your Wi-Fi Connection which can be WPA, WPA2-PSK and then finally enter your password of the WI-FI Connection to connect to a Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone. Okay, this is what they will show as a trick to connect Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone. They will not show you if this actually works or anything else in the further steps of the Video. They simply stop other video in this step. This is also a fake trick and you can’t access Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone using this trick. Let me tell you why this join hidden network option is there in your Jio Phone. You know that in a Wi-Fi router, you will get several options. An option support you to hide your Wi-Fi availability of your router. Means if your Wi-Fi is on through your Wi-Fi router and your Hidden option is ON then no one in your area can find that your Wi-Fi router is actually on. So when you are hiding your Wi-Fi Connection, this option to join hidden network will allow you to connect that hidden Wi-Fi network. So if your home’s Wi-Fi Connection is Hidden then you can go to your Jio Phone settings and then from settings, you need to go to Wi-Fi advanced settings and join hidden network to enter all your Wi-Fi network details as SSID network name, security, password and click the connect button to connect to that hidden network. This is nothing to do with connecting Wi-Fi Hotspot using Jio Phone to another Android Phone. This is also a fake trick and you can’t use this trick to connect a Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone.

How you can connect Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jio Phone?

Hotspot in Jiophone

There is two ways to connect Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jio Phone. Jio Phone supports to connect to a Wi-Fi Connection. So this is not the case that Jio Phone hardware is not supported to enable Wi-Fi Hotspot. In Jio Phone, you can connect to a Wi-Fi Hotspot but the problem is the software. For some reason, Jio engineers are not allowing peoples to use Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jio Phone. Jio Phones hardware supports Wi-Fi Hotspot but yet disabling the Wi-Fi option in Jio Phone doesn’t make any sense. So if you can change the firmware of your Jio Phone, you can actually access Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jio Phone. The firmware means the software platform where the Jio Phone actually works. It’s the software part of a Phone which handles all the features of the Phone including all the apps installed in your Jio Phone. There are many developers in India who actually can build a better firmware of Jio Phone and if they does you can install that firmware in your Jio Phone and it will totally change the look of your Jio Phone interface and also allow you to connect Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone. But the problem is there are no such developers are currently working to build a better firmware of Jio Phone because it actually doesn’t worth. It needs so much effort and time to build a firmware and if those developers are giving their efforts and times, they will also try to earn few money but from whom they can expect this money? There’s no one who can pay them some money so that they can build the beta version of the Rom of Jio Phone. So simply there’s no one in today’s date to actually built a beta ROM of Jio Phone.

Another move and I should say the best possible way to enable the Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone is by following the official update of Reliance Jio. Yes this is the only authentic way on what you can depend upon. In my previous paragraph, I have mentioned that Jio Phones hardware actually supports Wi-Fi Hotspot when it supports to connect a Wi-Fi network. So there is a possibility that Reliance Jio in their future update can enable the Wi-Fi Hotspot in there is Jio Phone through an official update. Jio engineers are currently working too creating a better environment to use Jio Phone and also trying to provide other features they have not provided at the time of launching of the Jio Phone. So you can also expect that in future, Jio Phone will support Wi-Fi Hotspot through an official update. But till then you just have to wait for this feature to be enabled in Jio Phone. There are other features are also promised at the time of the launch of Jio Phone. Like using WhatsApp in Jio Phone and using other popular social networking platforms like Facebook and Instagram to use in your Jio Phone through the official App update in your Jio Phone.

Reliance Jio has just launched and started to be distributed among all the Subscribers of the Jio Phone in the First Booking Date. Good Luck to all the Peoples who have booked Jio Phone on 24th Aug, 2017 in it’s First Booking Date. As few are getting Payment Error while tried to book Jio Phone, If you are among 1 of them, then your Show check out the this Page where I have Discussed that to do to resolve this Payment Failed Problem.

Let’s come back to the topic now. Many of us booked Jio Phone because Jio Phone is giving a lot of Features in a Basic Featured Phone only for Rs. 1500/- and the Best thing is that you can get full refund of your Rs. 1500 after 3 years of Usage of this Jio Phone. But we can’t disagree that there’s a big issue in this Jio Phone. You already know what issue I’m talking about!!! Yes…The issue is about the Wi-Fi Hotspot, Reliance Jio by-default has not provided any Jio Phone Hotspot in this Mobile Phone. Maybe because Jio is giving 1GB Unlimited 4G Data with a Month Validity for only Rs. 153/- so Reliance Jio doesn’t want you to use this Special Internet Connection with Other Devices using Jio Phone Wi-Fi Hotspot Connection. So they find it useful not to Provide a Wi-Fi Hotspot in your Jio Phone.

Not Being the Part of Jio Phone, Wi-Fi Hotspot is really missing by some peoples and they have decided not to buy it as it’s not worth without a Wi-Fi Hotspot. Guys that not true. You will understand later that Jio Phone is totally worth event Without a Wi-Fi Hotspot. Though if Reliance would provide a Wi-Fi Hotspot in Jio phone, that would be really helpful for us.

  1. I too didnt get any ‘more’ function there in my new Jio phone for activating wifi hotspot as you said above………
    Please suggest how to solve this….
    If you didn’t have this feture then why you had mentioned on your official site how to configure wifi hotspot and even on specification you had mentioned hotspot – yes.

  2. You mention on this site
    “Maybe because Jio is giving 1GB Unlimited 4G Data with a Month Validity for only Rs. 153/- so Reliance Jio doesn’t want you to use this Special Internet Connection with Other Devices using Jio Phone Wi-Fi Hotspot Connection”
    But on your store they said you will get 512 MB daily…
    So please confirm wether it’s 512 or 1GB. On this 153 recharge………..

  3. NO Wfi Hotspot Option available
    unable to connect Jio Phone to CRT TV/LED TV…. thrir is no such app available.
    Not facebook..
    Not Whatsapp..
    Internet speed is to slow.
    i thought its a wastage of money…

  4. Reliance jio made us fool.. No wifi hotspot we can connect.. Its useless..!!! Plz dont buy the phone.. This phone is rubbish.

  5. Looks It is not jio official website.. Otherwiste how can they provide steps for enable hotspot. Even which is not available in Jio phone..

  6. You have to switch on your wi fi in Jio phone to get more options. I’ve successfully connected to other Android device and used data shared by them. Internet speed is very good in low signals too and it supports 360p Mp4 videos , Data and battery usage is low when streaming. Its the best phone at this price . I love it

  7. jio will not enable wifi hotspot in feature phones, as this will gradually decrease the sale of jiofi’s.
    I think, if they launched next version of this phone too, it’ll not have hotspot facility.
    yeahhh.. without hotspot.. its a dabba phone. better be aware before you buy.

  8. There is no wifi hotspot connectivity option.. how to connect internet connection to other Android phone.? Please tell me.. it’s very urgent..

  9. Faltu phone ever…..please….never try to buy this phone…

    No wifi hotspot
    Poor battery life
    Bad display quality it may damages your eyes

  10. Faltu phone ever…..please….never try to buy this phone…

    No wifi hotspot
    Poor battery life
    Bad display quality it may damages your eyes

  11. There is no wifi hotspot connectivity option.. how to connect internet connection to other Android phone.? Please tell me.. it’s very urgent..

  12. Please do not ever buy this phone, this a total shit, waste of money this phone do not have a WiFi hot spot feature also it does not accept sim other than the jio, you have to buy other cable for watching TV, this phone just lock you up with jio company of ambani only.

  13. Like millions I spent Rs. 1653 and bought jio feature phone and I became a fool and Ambani became more rich and rich. This phone is a damn shit. I think we Indians never learn lessons and fall trap to smart people.

  14. I kept aside the phone. A sheer waste of Rs.1500/-. Who the hell may be fortunate enough to get back the Rs.1500/- after 3 years, whereas the life of an average phone is designed for 3 years? Once again the reliance group fooled the Indian people and plundered the poor pockets. Nothing more. Again they may appear with another trick. Don’t fell in it.

  15. In place of divert people jio could data limit use only dwnld on 4g movis vdo talk 256 kb talk 22 kb give hotspot end to limit use app like airtel 3g wifi talk vdo
    u can regd 3g volte as new

  16. Misleading article. I am also one of buyer who got fooled. Like many of you, I also registered assuming Hotspot feature is available. I could have as well gone for Rs. 999 JioFi instead of this. Anyway now not buying anything from Jio . Funny thing is, the SIM got with this phone will not work with other phones I was told. So cant even use as second SIM in my Android phone. Total waste 1500+ precious time.

  17. Jio is not going to provide hotspot function in Jiophone because if they provide this function in Jiophone then why do people buy their JIOFI.

  18. Hey Mukesh Ambani please set the hotspot in all the JIO phone’s please you will get money more please give update fast

  19. Kind of funny that this crazy blogger made us read his entire Essay criticizing other youtubers and himself ends up without any explanation.
