Samsung and Reliance Jio have partnered to allow users of select smartphones to avail of the Jio Preview Offer. While the offer was previously only available bundled with the purchase of Reliance Retail’s Lyf brand of smartphones, and the move marks the first time Reliance Jio has tied up with another mobile manufacturer for the preview.
As reported by TechPP, the Reliance Jio Preview Offer gives users of select Samsung smartphones three months of unlimited data, HD voice and video calling, and SMS messages on a Jio SIM, apart from access to Jio applications. The offer is available for both existing and new customers of select Samsung smartphones.
The report lists the eligible Samsung smartphones, all of which are of course 4G-enabled with support for the FDD-LTE Band 3 (1800MHz). The Samsung Galaxy A5, Galaxy A5 (2016), Galaxy A7, Galaxy A7 (2016), Galaxy A8, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 5 Duos, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S7, and the Galaxy S7 Edge are reportedly eligible for the offer.
To avail the offer, users of the above-mentioned select Samsung smartphones will have to download the MyJio app. Once they’ve done so, they’ll find an option to Get Jio SIM. Clicking on that will generate a coupon with a barcode and Jio Offer code that mentions a period of validity. The coupon is non-transferable, and can only be used on the device it is generated on. Users will then have to choose which proof of address and proof of identity they would like to submit as verification documents.
After this, users will have to visit their nearest Reliance Digital store to submit their documentation and pick up the free Reliance Jio SIM card. Once they’ve picked up the SIM card, users will need to insert it into their smartphone and then tele-verify it by calling 1977. At that point, users need to open the MyJio app again and avail of the Jio Preview Offer. Once their 90-day preview is up, users will be presented with the option to continue with Reliance Jio’s commercial tariff plan.
