Reliance Jio SIM Home Delivery Finally Kicks Off with an Invite-based Pilot Programme

Taking up from the rumours that hinted about Jio’s upcoming home delivery service, Reliance Jio has finally launched a pilot programme to deliver the Jio SIM cards at your doorstep. For now, the company is launching the service in the main cities of India to save the buyers from standing in long queues for getting the SIM card. Under the programme, select customers would be allowed to get the SIM delivered at their doorstep. These users can schedule the deliveries for as soon as “within 30 minutes”.

Many past reports suggested that Reliance might just launch an online portal wherein users can buy and schedule the delivery of Jio SIM card. But the actual programme is based on invite system. For now, the Jio SIM card home delivery programme is limited to cities such as Chennai, Delhi NCR, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mumbai, Pune, and Visakhapatnam.

Under the delivery programme, buyers would get an invite to schedule the delivery of Jio SIM at their address. Sadly, the programme also allows customers to request an invite for the delivery. The selection process for the home delivery invitation is pretty strict and is handled by a dedicated team of employees. Notably, Reliance employees will not be able to refer people for the invite. Reliance Jio will grant invites to “influencers” it has identified. Being a pilot programme, Reliance is targeting a small chunk of buyers.

In another initiative, Reliance Jio is also running a programme for housing societies and enterprises. This programme allows the Housing communities and businesses to register for Jio SIM. On the approval of the application, a team of Jio employees would visit the society or office to distribute SIM cards through a kiosk. Customers from the selected housing community or office would just need to carry an Aadhar card for ‘instant eKYC-based activation’.

Brother it was experimental,as per miui forum.
Its work for me some time on miui 8.1.1 .i have also used a tape at upper mic near the infrared port at the top. But it will kill the voice when orientation of the phone is horizontal and in loudspeaker mode. vertical position work great.
Service centre has no solution. Also some lenovo k5 have the same problem.some redmi note 3 also have the problem.
If service centre provide you any solution please let us know.

Do below steps to disable secondary noice cancellation mic.
Root your phone
Install Root Browser from the Play store or other…
Navigate to /system and open the file “build.prop” in “RB Text Editor”
Find the line that says: persist.audio.fluence.voicecall=true
and change it to “false” so it reads persist.audio.fluence.voicecall=false
Reboot your phone

The disclosure is part of TRAI’s mandatory 180 day offering upon the plan was introduced.

Nothing to get your hair in a twist.

Point being every plan has the same disclosure. Just because it’s listed separately doesn’t imply anything.

And everyone knows these plans are placeholders. Real plans would be revealed afterwards.

New SIMs are available only once per handset. So actual commercial launch has not been done yet.

No more queues because of two reasons:
1. The Jio craziness has faded away due to network issues.
2. Ekyc process has maded it easy and also sims are available at more places.

Sudhakar
November 21, 2016 11:25 pm 11:25 PM

All the queue has gone for withdrawing / depositing / on the spot exchanging the white money and some for black money.
