I am using idea prepaid sim to receive OTP and incoming calls, as currently jio offer free porting alongwith 1 month recharge pack.

So if I port to jio and next month not make any recharge in jio

1. can I get OTP in jio without any recharge ?

If I pay additional Rs 99 for prime membership does it help me to keep active my jio sim and allow to receive calls and SMS  without any recharge.

Make sure you opt for some monthly plan initially and do keep a min of 20rs balance on your jio sim because this should suffice your purpose.

I think to get calls and OTP without recharge, Rs 99 prime membership is mandatory.
Can anyone confirm.

yeah plus At many places jio store even gives sim for free.
One can then do recharge himself or herself.
But not all do that all depends on people working there.

Whatever it is.
I am enjoying Jio very much now.
Internet Speed is boosted too much now.
Don’t know if they are testing 5g or it’s due to low congestion.

I ported about a month back and the retailer denied any on going offer. The location is Bangalore. He also mentioned that the 1 month free offer was there in the very beginning.
