So here is the thread with all answers regarding JIO free services for 90 days along with LYF handset purchase.

Important Numbers:
JIO helpcare is quick enough https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

JIO Helpcare: 1800-889-9999
JIO Money: 1800 891 9999
LYF Care: 1800-890-9999
Reliance Digital Toll free: 1800-103-1044
Call this no. if your sim is activated: 198 or 199

Q. What quality services i could expect from JIO ???
Their support is damn good.
Call quality is really cool, it was also mentioned by dimers in other threads(JIO mention it as HD Call)
Internet speeds range from 15-23 Mbps indoor and 30-50 Mbps outdoor.
Ping is 50-99ms if tested from reliable Indian servers.
Unlimited data with FUP makes this deal cool.
Free 4G data, unlimited calls, free text….
Other services include free music/movies/HD TV/magazines/news/many more which are available via different different JIO apps…

Q. Is RJIO live in my city ????
RJIO has PAN India licence however it may/may not be there in your area.

You may check the JIO network from other 4G handset with other 4G sim inserted. Just search the network, if you find the option there for RJIO, then yes then RJIO is available in your area.
Or you may call to JIO Helpcare.

Things to Remember!!!

One year warranty is already there however you may extend it to two full years via LYF Care app after entering required details within 15 days.
Extended warranty do not cover for battery, charger or accessories.

After receiving the handset, insert your sim in sim slot 1 and till when sim services/offer isn’t activated, don’t pit another sim in the handset as this may delay the activation of offer as reminded by dimers and confirmed by customer care guy https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

You may purchase LYF handset along with free JIO sim from nearest Reliance digital store. See the image below for supported stores.

Reliance Store locator >> http://www.reliancedigital.in/store_locator.htm...

Don’t purchase it online as you may not receive the sim and free services.

You may pay @ Reliance stores with Reliance digital gift card however do ask the store manager before purchasing and billing whether he has proper systems to redeem the voucher.

Q. What is the the cost ????
Below prices includes everything right from taxes to sim cost https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

Flame Series(Economical Option)

Flame 1 >> Rs.4999 (1GB RAM, 4.5 inch display)
Flame 2 >> Rs.3499(1GB RAM, 4 inch display)
Flame 3/4/5/6 >> Rs.2999(512 MB RAM, 4 inch display, no playstore on flame 6)

Refer for specifications >> https://www.mylyf.com/flame-smartphones-coll...on

I am not listing other series but you may find links below with their price range.

https://www.mylyf.com/wind-smartphones-coll...on

EARTH(Rs.19499-19999)

Q. What free services attached with JIO ???

You will get free JIO sim bundled with promotional offer for 90 days from date of activation.
Promotion offer includes free calls/text/data for 90 days, yes everything free .

Within 24 hours your sim would be activated.
You will get two SMS/message on your alternate no. which you provided in the CAF form regarding SIM activation.
After you get the second message that sim is ready to be used and asking you to complete tele verification, you will start receiving JIO network on your JIO/LYF phone/sim. Do the tele-verification as told(entering last 4 digits of AADHAR Card No.)

After this your 90 days promo would be activated within 15 minutes or max 6 hours. It took 15 minutes in my case after i told JIO Care to get this activated as soon as possible.
You will also get FRC messages on JIO after unlimited offer is activated. In my case they did two FRC’s, one for 100 calls/messages and 2GB data and second with everything unlimited.

You can verify the same either by MyJIO app signup >> signin >> there you would see the offer.
Or you may call 199 from JIO phone, they will assist for that.

Q. Can we connect other devices with hotspot and free JIO Network data ???
Yes hotspot works smoothly with upto max eight users simultaneously https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

Q. 90 Days unlimited promo is for everyone or restricted to some users ???
Well JIO officially says you have to get an invite code from https://www.ji...m/
You will receive an email along with invite code within 15-30 minutes.
Take a printout of this email and present it before store manager while purchasing handset.

Some store managers though do not ask for invite code.
I confirmed with JIO about this issue to be on safe side, they said officially there there is no notice/information about this. They said if store manager claims this they you would definitely get the promo. On a safer side do present the invite code as getting an invite code is one minute work.

Also some managers claim that free data is restricted to 75 GB which isn’t true. Data is truly unlimited https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

Q. What other services i would receive along with Free Call/Text/Data ???
There are many premium apps from JIO which are free for 90 days like JIO Play for HD Live TV, JIO Mags for magazine and other. You may see all the apps in MyJIO App drawer/folder around 8-10 apps….
You can watch live TV, watch latest movies, latest magazines, local news, use JIO money…….

The login details which you created for MyJIO app would be valid across all apps except for JIO Money.

JIO Money app would provide Rs.15000 worth of coupons….

Q. Which phone/handset is recommended ???

Flame 2 is good because it offers 1GB RAM as compared to 512MB RAM in Flame 3/4/5/6.
Flame 2 is priced @ Rs.3499 for limited time after price cut.
If you have more budget shift to another series and plan accordingly.

Q. What comes with box ???
Along with handset and JIO sim, data cable, charger, earphone, screen protector and JIO guide would be there.

Q. Can i use different sim in LYF handset ???
Yes you can, infact its a dual sim phone and is unlocked to be used with any sim.
However before sim activation and offer being activated, don’t put any other sim as this may delay/lapse the 90 days promo offer.

Q. Getting slow speed ???
Try this hack, this may/may not be worthy:

Only for flame 2 users as it uses Mediatek processor
First dial star#star#3646633#star#star
Then select band mode then select sim 1(if u inserted jio in sim1)>band mode>unchek band 3&5>set
Check speed [Credit @Deals4U]

More Information

Here is Antutu score for LYF Flame 2:
As the graphics are poor on Flame 2 so Antutu score was high, more than Xiaomi Redmi 1S https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

Image above: All speedtests were on Band 40

Increase your internet speed by choosing Band 40 by following the trick mentioned above.

Personal observations

Band 40 gives more speed(above 20Mbps) but high pings and
Band 3 & 5 gives slow speed(less than 15 Mbps) but low pings https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

199 could not. 198 was the one who could point out the exact issue finally. hence asking what number is 198. try from your number, it will not go thru.

199 goes to the normal call centre.. 199 folks were clueless on the problem is what I meant…

198 seems to be their next level support (level 2) Or some different team.. They were more technical and understood ESN/RSN etc.

Oops.. i was not asking you to add this number in the above post. I was wanting to understand if any of you know of this 198 number. Can you pl try calling 198 (or 1988.. like 1977 which you call for televerification) on your phone and check if it is going through? (because I suspect it is an internal number – i was made to call this number from their own handset/sim in Jio support centre).

Vu +kg for such effort , almost every doubt solved ,

based on my experience i wanna suggest something , i am sure most people would have following doubts in their mind so check all points -

Flame 2 is best option in flame series and in budget .

many people raised issue that their sim is getting deactivated for identity proof issue , so here it is -
fill the form yourself and all the details (name address dob even address characters) should be exact same as id proof , in address sometimes we do slight change but here you must not , you must give exact details , minimum mistake – minimum chance of issue .

best option is aadhar card as id proof as it have almost every detail .

photo in id proof and photo given by you should not have much difference .

most important point is photo in id proof should be clear , mainly eyes .

there are 3 bands in LTE in Flame series – 3 , 5 & 40 . you should give priority to 40 , if speed is low in this band then select 3 and 5 with or without 40 band .

in speedtest you will get different result with different server so may be you have to choose almost every server to test exact speed .

for delhites if you are in doubt for selecting the best server to get exact speed test then select server – Noida based Cyfuture India Pvt. Ltd. , in south delhi area i selected all server airtel, voda, den, act, spectranet etc but this one give highest speed test to me .

in download managers eg IDM , you may get speed 500KB/s to 3MB/s (5mbps to 30mbps) while speedtest shows high speed , so dont be worry , because speed depends on downloading sites too , for Example – on openload speed was high , on indishare bdupload torrent etc it was low for me . so check on which site you are getting best speed and download stuffs from that one .
