Must Read: Jio Call Quality Review.
Rumor 1. Once you purchase & insert the Jio SIM, your mobile will be locked for Jio only and no other SIM will work on your phone.
We all are living in 21st Century right?. we all are aware of Rules and Regulations made for telecom operators by government. So, How can it be possible to lock your smartphone without your permission? You are the sole owner of your smartphone and not the operator then how can an operator lock your SIM card?
Basically a rumor is spreading these days that if you insert a Jio SIM then it will lock your smartphone to use only Jio SIM card. If you have a Dual SIM smartphone, then your sim slot will be locked with that sim.
Did you Ever heard about smartphone hacking through Sim Cards? No, Right? Basically Sims are manufactured just to store few Kilobytes of data which is being used to store your contact details. So don't fear about getting locked by using Jio SIMs because there is no technology developed so far to hack your smartphone with Sim Cards.
Initially reliance was asking for IMEI numbers just because Jio SIMs were available for only few smartphones including Samsung and LYF. And many were visiting Jio stores with Other Manufacturer's Handsets. So, they have only asked for your IMEI number for verification purposes. But now Jio SIM is available for every 4G smartphone.
Reliance Jio have over 10 Million of customers and none of them complain about this issue. You can ask your friends about the truth. I am using Jio and i can use any operator's SIM on my phone.
If you still think that there is a chance of getting locked, then you can take every legal action against jio as you have your smartphone bill and you are the owner of your phone and not Jio.
So, don't waste your time by reading rumors and get your Jio SIM and enjoy the true welcome offer of the Reliance Jio Network.
Rumor 2. After 90 days of Jio offer, your tariff will be enhanced.
Truth:Reliance Jio is a very big company having 10 million of customers. They are offering free voice and data till 31st December as Reliance Jio Welcome Offer. After 31st December Jio will not increase your tariff. Everything is rumor that jio will charge you more after this welcome offer.
Lets clear this Rumor.
Jio has already announced their tariff plans which are highly competitive in this industry. You can check all the plans on their official website www.jio.com.
So, think guys when their Tariffs are very clear to everyone why will Jio charge you more?
You will still have the option to choose Postpaid or Prepaid connection. So it's clear that Jio cannot charge you more after welcome offer and everything is fully transparent.
