Reliance Jio’s announcement on September 1, 2016 shook the telecom companies in India. Not because of the fact that Jio will offer lowest 4G data at Rs50/GB, but for voice calls on Jio that are free for life. Now Jio is available for everyone.
So, if you want a Reliance Jio connection without giving up your existing mobile number, here’s how you can port your number to Reliance Jio.
Step 1: Send the following text message – PORT followed by your 10-digit mobile number to TRAI’s central number for mobile number portability – 1900. Example: Send ‘PORT 98xxxxxx98’ to 1900. You’ll receive an SMS back with a Port out code.
Step 2: Download the Jio App bundle on your Android Smartphone and generate an offer code.
Step 3: Get yourself a Jio SIM. You can walk into any Reliance Digital Xpress and Reliance Digital Xpress mini stores and provide them with an eKYC verification via your Aadhar Card number and get a Jio SIM. Provide the person assisting you with your port out code.
Step 4: Settle any remaining payment of your old telecom provider and seamlessly get your number ported to Reliance Jio.
And then just sit back, relax and enjoy the 4G digital revolution.
