I bought a jiophone just an hour ago. The shop gave it for Rs 699 + 125 ( new sim with 1 month pack).

Now I have an old Jio number, which I want to use in this Jiophone. It does not have any current packs, and I want to utilise Amazon flash offer of 75 to accumulate 75 rs packs in this old Jio SIM of mine, which i want to use in the jiophone. The shop guy asked me to keep the new sim running at least for 10 days, and then insert the old sim.

I want to know :

1. Can I remove the new jio sim which came with the jiophone and start using my old jio instantly, right now?

2. If no, can i accumulate 75 rs packs in the old jio sim which i want to use with the jiophone, without inserting it in the jiophone, bcoz the flash offer will run till 9 pm only.

3. Can i use both SIMs as and when required in the same jiophone, without affecting plans of either SIMs.

I would appreciate a quick reply.

yes you can recharge now and use later, and no need to keep new sim in mobile

1) you can use any jio sim in jiophone anytime.
2) no need to do any “first” recharge for using your existing jio sim in jiophone.
3) You can recharge your jio sim with JioPhone plans even if you don’t put your jio Sim in the jiophone. When your jio sim inserted into the jiophone, then the jiophone plans previously recharged by you will be start working.

one more important thing

don’t recharge your jio sim with jiophone plan if you regularly shift your jio sim from jiophone to smartphone, or smartphone to jiophone.

because, jiophone plan will work only on jiophone. not work on smartphone.

suppose, you are currently using your sim in jiophone. you recharged with 75/- jiophone plan and enjoying the plan benefits.
suddenly, you have to use your smartphone instead your jiophone. then, you removed jio sim from jiophone and inserted into the smartphone. now you cann’t make outgoing calls or outgoing sms. because 75/- jiophone plan works only on jiophone. when you insert your jio sim back into jiophone, outgoing calls and sms facility will be back.

yeah sure. the sim will almost always remain in the jiophone only. just might take out once in a while to put the new sim that came with it, for otp purposes, etc.

After all, i have to make up for the 125 that i paid for the new sim, so swiggy, freecharge, amazon, notring etc will pay for the 125 extra. wink

Some are incorrect statements above.
Jio phone SIM is tied to ANY JIO phone only, Can not be used in smart phones for making calls or receiving calls.
Smartphone SIM (issued by JIO) can not be used in ANY JIO phone. Period (English language period).
