Jio SIM card activation delay :

Jio- the new entry to the competitive telecom market offers free JIO SIM for those who buys LYF mobiles and Samsung 4G mobiles.
Since the network provider offers 3 months unlimited free 4G internet, many people are eagerly buying the low-cost LYF mobiles in-spite of the lack of features in-order to get the JIO sim.

But many people after buying the phone with SIM complaint that the SIM activation process is delaying very much. Usually the other network operators take only 4 hours to activate the SIM.
Most of the users experiences delay up-to 10 days in the activation of Jio SIM card.

Why there is delay in the JIO SIM activation process?

The main reason is , if you buy the SIM in dealer shops like Univercell, Poorvika, or some other local mobile sales shops they keep the application forms with them for one week and send them at week end.
So, if you want to get your JIO SIM activated quickly within one day, you have to buy the SIM in Reliance show room or Reliance shops or JIO showrooms. Avoid buying it in other dealer shops.

If you already bought the SIM in other dealer shops and if it is getting delayed for activation, then the only option is to push them to activate quickly by calling or visiting them often until it gets activated.

The second reason for the delay is they follow some digital scanning process of the application forms that is little complex and rejects some application forms if the address is very small or similar silly processes.

Since the company is in initial phase, they did not build a good customer care support yet. They are not responding for the emails sent to Customer care , at present.
Getting the line for their toll free number is like winning a lottery which one lakh people participates.

Hope the service of JIO will improve once they officially launched into the market and a new entry like JIO is needed at this time for India to make the mobile internet price as affordable.
