The preview offer by Reliance Jio, one of the most awaited launches of the year, that includes attractive data and calling offers among others, can now be availed by all Andriod smartphones in India. The preview offer could initially be availed only by Samsung and LYF smartphone users.
According to tech blog TechPP, any smartphone user can follow some simple steps to generate a code to get a Jio 4G SIM.
- First download the MyJio App from the Google play store.
- Open the app. There you will see a button saying "Download all" to download all Jio apps. Click on it.
- Once you have finished downloading all the Jio apps, close the MyJio app.
- Now disconnect from WiFi and switch off the mobile data.
- Then open the MyJio app again and click on the open button near MyJio. You will see a button called "Get A SIM".
This has been possible due to a small bug that has been reported, forcing some stores to ask for the IMEI (International Mobile Station Equipment Identity) number.
