Q.7. My Jio SIM is not activated. What to do now?
A. If you have got the Jio SIM today itself, then wait for 1 or 2 days. It will be activated by the Reliance Jio Technical Team after verifying your documents/proofs.

If you have taken sim card via LYF phone or via JioFi device, then sim gets activated within 2 to 3 hours or even in 5 to 10 minutes as soon as the store owner uploads your CAF.

But if you got the sim via free preview on 4G phones, activation takes about 1 to 5 days generally, and that too if all your documents are verified and your signature matches.

However if you have already waited for more than 2 days, then look at the Signal Reception Strength of Jio SIM. If the signal strength is there then call on the Reliance Jio Tele-Verification Center at 1977 from your Jio SIM Card.

You should be start using it post tele-verification.

But if you aren’t getting even the signal strength, then restart your phone and look for the signal strength again. If you have tried everything and waited damn long, then try

  • Calling the Reliance Digital Store from where you got the SIM Card to know whether there was any problem in documents verification/submission or something else
  • If the Store says that everything is alright from their end, then just call the Jio Customer Care number – 1800-103-887 or email them at /  to inquire about the status of your SIM activation.

Q.8. What about Jio 4G SIM Support to other Devices?
A. Officially there are no such announcements regarding supporting the other devices on Jio Network as of now. However you can subscribe the comments thread or our newsletter so that we can keep you posted on this as soon as we come to know about any information about further devices or updates.

Q.9. Can I get more than 1 Jio SIM card from 1 LYF (Life) Mobile?
A. Officially No, you can’t get more than 1 Jio SIM card from 1 LYF Mobile phone. But it’s possible via rooting that Mobile Phone and changing the IMEI number.

Q.10. Can I use the Jio SIM by entering Reliance LYF Phone IMEI?
A. Yes, you can use the Jio SIM by using the IMEI of a LYF Mobile Phone, but please make sure your phone must be rooted in order to change the IMEI number.

Q.11. What is the Jio Customer Care Number, Email and Address?
Customer Care No. – 1800-890-1977 (From Other Mobile Phones)
Customer Care No. – 199 (From Jio Sim Card)
Jio Official Website:
Jio Careers Website:

Q.12. Do the sim card providers from Reliance Digital / DX Mini crosscheck for registered IMEI no. before doing registration?
A. Some of the showrooms perform that check, but not all. So you’ll have to kind of hit-and-try with near-around showrooms if any Reliance Digital person asks you about IMEI.
Infact most of the showrooms will now ask you to get the Reliance Jio allowed handset to bring along in order to get the Jio SIM Card.

Q.13. What is VoLTE?
A. VoLTE stands for Voice over Long-Term Evolution, equivalent or even more than 4G technology.

Q.14. Can I use Reliance Jio SIM card in all mobile phones?
A. Yes, you can use it on all 4G and 3G mobile phones. But if your phone doesn’t support VoLTE, then you can install JioJoin app to make VoLTE HD Calls and SMSes via Reliance Jio SIM card.

If you don’t want to use JioJoin, then just wait or ask your mobile phone manufacturer to provide VoLTE update.

Otherwise you would only be able to use the internet if you don’t have a VoLTE phone.

Q.15. What download and upload speeds are coming in the Reliance Jio Speed Test?
A. We have identified that the speed is fluctuating from 10Mbps to 50Mbps as Downloading bandwidth and Upto 8Mbps as Upload Speed/Bandwidth.

Here are some screenshots to prove the same

Q.16. Can I use Reliance Jio SIM Card in airtel 4g dongle for using the internet?
A. Yes, you can use Reliance Jio SIM Card in all 4G Dongles but you need to change the Dongle Profile in order to do so.

Q.17. Does JioFi 2 (MiFi) Hotspot Device works? Does it generated heating or gets heat-up if I use it as normal Router for long hours? What’s the review of JioFi by
A. As per our constant usage of JioFi 2 MiFi Device, we observed that it doesn’t heat-up as any other Phone would. It is just like any other Normal Router+Modem, which also gives you method to configure the Wi-Fi Settings as you would do in a Router like MAC Address Filter, TKIP+AES Encryption, Wireless Modes e.g.. B/G/N, B/G, G/N and much more.

Basis our usage of constant 48 hours, we can say that this device is perfect for you, if you are getting pissed-off by the huge Internet/Broadband Data Bills at home or even at office. You can use it as a normal router. This works with a Jio SIM and you can do the Calling and send SMS by installing JioJoin App on your any phone whether 4G, 3G, or even 2G or Wi-Fi Android and iOS Device. JioFi allows you to connect upto 31 Devices wirelessly and 1 device via its Micro-USB to USB (Tethering) port.

All these settings can be changed by visiting the modem IP or configuration page at: http://jiofi.local.html/

Q.17. What is the Default password for JioFi 2?
A. JioFi does have the default username and password both as administrator

Q.18. What are its disadvantages and advantages of Jio MiFi2 Device?
A. As far as we have used the JioFi 2 Wi-Fi Device, we have come across only one issue that it does restart sometimes (once or twice a day if you are using it continuously for more than 12 hours). Also if you had set-up the static IP Addresses at your PC/Laptop/ Mobile Phones or any other device, this would generate a conflict in few hours. To resolve that just remove the static IP from that device and make it as DHCP (Full form : Dynamic Host Control Protocol)

Q.19. Can I use any other SIM Cards in this device for 4G usage. e.g. Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, Aircel or anything else?
A. Yes, you can use this device to use the 4G Data from any SIM Card, if later-on you find that the commercial plans launched are expensive. It could be done by changing the APN Setting in the Device Configuration Page URL provided above.

Q.20. Why and How Reliance Jio is giving free unlimited 4G when other companies charge hefty amount for the same?
A. Reliance Jio is world’s largest start-up with a funding of Rs.1,50,000 Crore. (Source: Economic Times), and by analyzing this much figure, company has the capability to run such lucrative offers till at-least 2 years.

These offers are actually the demand or need of our Indian Consumers. Currently we get very less benefit in terms of speed and usage data against what we pay. In short, Indian Consumers aren’t getting value for money.

By going this way, Jio wants to dominate the whole Indian Mobile-Internet Market-space, and gain the massive market-share.

And that is the need of hour actually, to create a healthy-competition for the end-users or consumers and bring more value for money for every penny they spend.

Q.21. What will be Reliance Jio 4G rates after 3 months offer expires?
A. As Reliance Jio hasn’t yet revealed the commercial plans, no one can be sure about it. But based on our informal conversation with Jio Officials, we were able to get some sort of hint about pricing.

The price would vary around:

  • Rs.100 per month for 10GB 4G Data & Unlimited Calls (via VoLTE), SMS & all Jio Services like Live TV, On-Demand movies, music, Magazines access etc.
  • Rs.200 per month for 30GB 4G Data with Unlimited VoLTE Calls, SMS & Services
  • Rs.500 per month for 80GB 4G Data with Unlimited VoLTE Calls, SMS & Services
  • Rs.1000 per month for Unlimited 4G Data with Unlimited VoLTE Calls, SMS & Services

Q.22. Why is Jio 4G slow in my city?
A. Jio 4G is under Beta Release as of now, and hence the speed fluctuates from location to location.

The average speed we observed in Delhi (Mahipalpur and Dwarka Area) is around 15 to 60 Mbps.

Jio Speed might be slow in your city or the area you are in currently due to any of the following reasons:

  1. Due to Multiple Apps Using the Data in your phone
  2. Low Network Signal Strength (Tower Connectivity)
  3. In case of JioFi, multiple connected phones or devices divide the speed among themselves

However in Gurgaon we observed speeds around 10 to 12 Mbps.

Q.23. How can I call using Jio VoLTE Technology, if I don’t have True 4G phone?
A. There’s no need to worry, even if you don’t have a VoLTE phone. You can install JioJoin App from Android Play Store or Apple App Store, which allows you to Call and SMS via Jio’s own App. This app can be installed on all the Android and iOS devices.

Q.24. On which platforms, I can use JioJoin App.
A. As of now, JioJoin App only works on Android and iOS both.

Q.25. My JioJoin App always shows offline. What to do?
A. You can try following steps in order to resolve the offline mode issue

  • Exit the App, and restart JioJoin
  • If your problem is still not resolved, restart your phone and start JioJoin. This should resolve all problems, but if it doesn’t,
  • Uninstall the JioJoin App and Install it back

Q.26. JioJoin goes Offline in between calls. What’s the issue and possible resolution?
A. Due to beta or NON-COMMERCIAL release, Jio hasn’t yet got the proper channel quota for placing the calls to other operators. Hence the COAI (Cellular Operators Association of India), the dominant telecom-operators like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea are refusing to provide more channels or slots to Jio to call to their phone numbers, as Jio is commercializing without even launching officially.

Due to this reason the call-drops are very often. Hope this may get resolved very soon.

Also, if there is any single interruption in 4G Service, then also the call will get drop, as all calls are being made via 4G technology, instead of the conventional 2G technology.

Please note these prices are just based on our assumptions, and have no relationship with Reliance Jio.

Q.27. I purchased JioFi Router Device at Rs.2,899 2 weeks ago but it is now being sold in Rs.1,999. Can I get the refund?
A. Yes we at are in talk with Reliance Jio to get your Rs.999 money back. Also we have created a petition at Change.org which you can sign to encourage the justice by the company. Your petition can get all JioFi owners money.


Thanks for your time. Please do not hesitate while asking any further questions about Reliance Jio.

Solution – Got the error: Server Error while trying to obtain a website: Connection refused

Do you ever get such kind of errors on your Mobile Phone or Computer/Laptop while Browsing the Internet?

Do you see something similar to:

Got the error: Server Error
while trying to obtain
Connection refused

If yes, then you are not alone. Even we got the same error many times but then we deeply analyzed the issue and here are our observations, which might not help you get it resolved but at-least you will have an idea that why such error is coming. This could be a great help to the Normal Non-Tech-Savvy audience.

Here is the screenshot of a 4G Phone where same issue had forced us to roll our eyes:

Got the error Server Error while trying to obtain a website Connection refused

Steps to Reproduce the Error:

  1. Enable 4G LTE/3G or even 2G on your Smartphone
  2. Browse any website via any of the browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Opera Mini etc.) in your Phone or Dongle attached to the Computer/Laptop

Why this error comes:

According to our findings, such error could arise from any or combination of the below reasons:

  1. Issue on Phones and Dongle connected devices like Laptop or Desktop/PC:The Mobile Network Operator can have some issue on the towers nearest to your location, while providing Internet Access to the audience.In our case network operator was Airtel, and we faced this issue while we were traveling in NCR (from Delhi to Gurgaon – Near to Iffco Chowk). The error persisted more than 2 hours in normal day time: 11 AM to 1 PM.
  2. Issue on Phone Only:There might be the case where you have Rooted your Phone and installed Ad-Blocker Plus on it. In this case, if your Ad-Blocker Settings are not updated or not properly saved, it may lead to such kind of errors while browsing the Internet.


What could be the Resolution or Solution to resolve such errors:

  1. If you are getting the Connection refused bug onto your phone even if you haven’t yet changed or modified any core-Android file settings, then there is a high possibility that your Network Operator does have some issues in your locality.To just cross-verify, try Turning-on the Internet Data on another SIM Card, if you have the other. If another SIM can run your Internet, then certainly the issue is with the Network Operator of your previous SIM.Additionally, you can verify with your mate around that whether he/she is able to access the Internet or not.To resolve this, please call onto the Customer Care number of your Network Operator.

    Customer Care No. of Different Mobile Network Operators in Delhi/NCR:

    Airtel Customer Care Number – 121 / 198 (Toll-Free), 9810198101 (Prepaid), 9810012345 (Postpaid)

If you don’t have a Samsung Phone, get it from your friends (Model must be from above list) and go to the Reliance Digital / DX Mini Store and ask for Jio SIM Card. They will most-probably see the Handset, some of the stores also note down the IMEI no. of the Samsung Mobile against which they provide the Jio SIM card.

You’ll be lucky if the store doesn’t ask you to show the Samsung Mobile Phone, and if that happens then you’ll get the SIM on Non-Samsung Phone as well. 🙂
