Reliance Jio, which has just recently started providing 4G coverage across the country, has gotten millions of people excited about making it big with this new technology. However, before you can enjoy the benefits of Reliance Jio, you will have to activate your SIM card first in order to get access to their services. Here’s how you can do it in just 5 simple steps.
1: Select your plan
There are three plans available, each with their own usage and price. The first is a free plan, where your 4G data limit is 1GB per day and you’ll have access to unlimited voice calls, SMSes, and a few live TV channels. This plan will be free for all Jio subscribers until March 31 next year. Once that date comes around, it’ll cost you Rs 50 a month (or Rs 500 for all 12 months). You can choose to pay using prepaid or postpaid billing options.
2: Register your mobile number
To continue with activation, you will have to register your number with Jio. The mobile number that you need to provide is that of your SIM card. Once done, you will receive an OTP on your registered mobile number via SMS. Once entered correctly, you will be informed of successful registration and asked to verify it by pressing a confirmation code sent via SMS. In case of any difficulties or errors while registering, simply call Customer Care at 1800-88-9999 and help will be provided instantly. In order for you do not to miss out on any details regarding the activation process of the Jio network, we have posted its terms and conditions on our website.
3: Verify your mobile number
You will receive a one-time password (OTP) on your registered mobile number. Enter that into your computer and click Next.
4: Complete KYC and get an OTP (One Time Password)
Once you’ve activated your new Reliance Jio number, you can start using it right away. Keep an eye out for more details on when 4G services will begin, as well as additional offers.

5: Done! You can start using your SIM card.
After your SIM card is successfully activated, you can use it to call or text anyone at no extra cost. The calling minutes come bundled with your plan and once those minutes are used up, you can purchase more (if required). If you’re not quite sure how much calling time is left on your account, just pop into your MyJio app and it will tell you. You can also add data packs to start using data services straight away. Now that you know how easy it is to activate a Reliance Jio SIM card, what are you waiting for? Get one for yourself!
