This is one of the most easiest way to get access to the fastest 4G provided by Jio and free offer for 3 months. As I mentioned earlier, you would need a code which was only available to Reliance employees, to buy a LYF phone with Jio sim cards. But now if you walk into any Jio Mini Store or Reliance Digital Store and ask for a LYF mobile with Jio sim, you will get one.

#3 My Jio App Method For All Other SmartPhones
This method works similar as Samsung method, but it works on almost all smartphone. This method works because of an apparent bug in My Jio App. We tried it on Redmi Note, Micromax Canvas, Moto X play and it works fine on all the devices. Here is what you have to do to “Get Jio Sim” button on My Jio App.
Step 1: Download My Jio App and Install it.
Step 2: Install all the 10 Jio Apps Shown inside the App
Step 3: Switch Off your Data Connection/WiFi Connection.
Step 4: Then Open My Jio App.
Step 5: App will show “Get Jio Sim” (If it didn’t show Reboot your smartphone and do the same step again)
Step 6: Tap on Get Jio Sim
Step 7: On new page it will show that there is No Internet Connection.
Step 8: Turn on your Mobile Data/Wifi Connection
Step 9: Go back to My Jio App and again click on Get Jio Sim.
Step 10: Follow the instructions on screen, If it shows Sim not available in your area choose any nearby location and try again.
Step 11: Generate the Code.
To get the Sim, just visit the nearby Jio Mini Store or Reliance Digital Store and show the Bar code. Also take Identity proof, Address proof and 2 photographs together. Technically your phone is eligible for getting the 4G Jio Sim but operator may refuse to give it to you. Keep Trying.
Note: Please note that we are still not sure that Jio accepts this code to give the free SIM, but more often they only ask for the code screenshot rather than phone details.
Officially though, The Jio Preview Offer with 3 months unlimited data, calls and entertainment service is available to Lyf and Samsung devices only, so the guys at store might insist you to generate offer code on these device itself. So don’t be surprised if you are turned down. Thanks for reading!!!
