Jio enters into the telecom network market from 5th of September and it is gaining its users at a very fast speed. Reliance Jio has set target to achieve 100 million users in as short time as possible. Where Jio is gaining huge popularity, on the other side other telecom companies start spreading rumors in the market to stop the market of Jio. Latest rumor is Jio sim IMEI number Lock.
Rumor #1: Latest rumor which comes in the market is that once you purchase and insert Jio sim into your phone, Your IMEI number will be locked for Jio only so that you will not be able to use another sim in future.
Fact #1: This is a pure rumor or complete nonsense as more than 10 million users are using this sim and no one faced this issue.
Rumor #2: Another rumor is that after 90 days of free usage, tariffs will be enhanced and you will be charge more than other networks and as your phone will be blocked for Jio only so you cannot change your network operator.
Fact #2: Reliance Jio has already announced its tariff plans which will be applicable after 31st of December. Reliance Jio has most attractive plans in all over India. It is providing free roaming service in all over India which no other network is providing till now. Jio plans are available at www.jio.com so, you can compare your mobile network plan with Jio plan.
Rumor #3: One more rumor is you cannot shift to other network after coming to Jio network. This rumor is basically to stop users to port to Jio network from other existing network.
Fact #3: Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is mandated by Government of India and all telecom networks have to adhere this policy. So you can shift to any network according to Government of India and there is no exception in this policy (not even Jio).
