How to Change Jio Phone SIM Card?
Hey Friends, Jio Phone that is Worth Rs. 1500/- is now one of the Most Selling Feature Phone ever in the Country. And not Only Jio Phone, Reliance is getting some major popularity in terms of their Apps also. Like Recently Reliance Jio’s JioTV App has Awarded with the Most Watched TV App in this Year. And that is why Reliance Jio Offered us a 10 GB Extra Free 4g Internet in our Jio SIM Cards but that Offer has released only to them who have used their SIM card to Register in Reliance Jio’s Jio TV App.
How to use Other SIM Card in Jio Phone?
Anyways, As almost everyone has this Rs. 1500 Priced Jio Phone in their Hand, and to Utilize the Most of the Mobile Phone, a Question always arises in our Mind that Can we use a Different SIM Card like a Vodafone or Airtel or Idea in a Jio Phone? You already know that Jio Phone has a Simple SIM Slot in their Back Panel which Holds a Micro Jio SIM Card in it. And as Jio Phone is like Regular CDMA Phone, So you can’t by Default use another SIM Card in Jio Phone. Right?
Does Jio Phone Actually Support Other SIM Cards?
From a very long time, we are constantly getting a lot of requests to mention whether a Jio Phone can operate with another Telecom Operator’s SIM Card like it can be Idea or Vodafone or even Bharti Airtel. I have also seen few Youtubers are saying that Jio Phone actually Operate with another SIM Card. Is it really True? Or they are just Faking?
Can I use Vodafone SIM in Jio Phone?
So I have Decided to Come up with this post where we will check whether a Jiophone can actually support all this other Sim cards or not. For a Beta Testing purpose of Jio Phone, I have Opened the Back Panel and tried to remove the Jio Sim that is Inserted at the back of Jio phone and then Replace it with a Vodafone Sim Card and finally Turn On or Switch On the Mobile Phone but to my Surprise the Jio phone is not Displaying any Network and instead it is giving us an Error that “The SIM Card is Locked. Please Insert a Valid Jio Sim.” So that clearly means that Jio phone is not supporting a Vodafone SIM card. Yes, That’s Sad but True. You can’t use Vodafone SIM in Jio Phone that’s Confirmed now.
Can I Use Airtel SIM in Jio Phone?
But what else I can get If I insert a very popular network provider in India which is Bharti Airtel. Do Reliance Jio Phone will support Airtel SIM Card in their Mobile Phone? This time also I have Inserted an Airtel SIM Card in my Jiophone and Switch the Phone on. Again and this time also, I can see the Same Error Message coming on the Screen that saying “The SIM Card is Locked. Please Insert a Valid Jio Sim.” so that means you can’t use Airtel or Vodafone or any Other SIM cards in your Jio Phone.
So if you are buying a Jio phone thinking that you can insert any kind of SIM cards and any mobile operators in Jio phone then you are wrong you can’t use Another Mobile Operator’s SIM card in your Jio phone. You have to use the Official Jio Sim Card which is being provided with the Jio phone mobile handset at the time of buying the Phone. And if you are confident enough then you can also try this with your own Jiophone if you are having one.
Jio Phone Software Updates:
Maybe in future Jio can come up with several other features like as you already know Jio phone does not officially support WhatsApp or Facebook using their Jio Phone Apps. So definitely there will be an update regarding this issues and if we are lucky enough then we might see other changes like inserting other Operator’s SIM card Option in your Jio phone. But so far there is no Official announcement yet so you have to wait for future update if Jio Engineers are working on this thing.
