Why does Reliance Jio SIM Not Working in 3G Phone

Before trying for tricks and tweaks to make fit an ordinary 3G smartphone to use free Reliance Jio SIM, you must understand why an ordinary phone does not pick up Jio network on it. Reliance Jio is a 4G only network and it does not support 3G and 2G Mobile handsets. In a nutshell if your Mobile phone does not work on 4G LTE network, theoretically it cannot work on Jio network. I have seen many Android Apps which claim to convert ordinary 3G Mobile Phone to 4G LTE phone but I really doubt about their claims. Some of them I experimented failed to fulfil their claims. Despite of it, I cannot encourage our readers to download and install Apps which claims to convert 3G Phones to support 4G LTE network due to many security reasons. However, there are some alternative tips to ordinary smartphone users whose phones do not support Reliance Jio 4G network to smart use this network on their phones.


How to Use Reliance Jio Free Network On Ordinary Phones

If you are not willing to buy  a 4G smartphone, you can try one of the following tips to use your ordinary old Mobile Phones to use free Data service offered by Jio SIM.

  1. Buy JioFi 4G Hotspot

    One of the best options to use free Reliance Jio Data on your ordinary Mobile Handset is to purchase a JioFi 4G Hotspot. This WiFi hotspot will receive 4G LTE network from Reliance Jio and you can connect maximum 10 devices to this network including your old smartphones.
