As reported earlier Reliance Jio is planning to do a soft launch by first week of April 2016.
In soft launch period, customers would be able to pick up a Reliance Jio SIM card for Rs.200 (other mobile operators charge Rs.10 – Rs.50 for new SIM cards), which should come with free data and voice valid for three months. The free usage offered to employees in the December launch was 75 GB data and 4500 mins calls. The employees we asked to use the full data and free calls before it expires, this will help Reliance Jio to stabilize their network.
Reliance Digital stores had already received the Jio SIM cards and devices which includes LYF Smartphones and Mi-Fi device. The company has already started selling LYF smartphones across stores and the customers buying LYF smartphones will be getting the SIM card on 1st April, 2016. The bundled SIM cards will come with preloaded data and voice minutes.
