Jio 4G prepaid tariff plans (latest)

Jio tariff plans available to recharge presently.

Following are the good things about Jio compared to other telecom operators (like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea etc) in India . . . . . . .

1. Free voice calls for ever i.e. as long as you've recharged your Jio no. with a data plan you can use unlimited local and STD calls to any network anywhere in India. Keep in mind ISD calls are charged (separate plans are available). Voice calls don't use data from your data plan activated on your Jio no but video calls does.

2. After consuming your data limit, you can still use data at a capped speed of 64 kbps (a decent speed for browsing the net). This benefit is applicable with every plan from Jio.

3. One plan for entire India and no worries about keeping talktime and promo. No roaming charges

4. Free subscription to Jio apps like JioTV, JioMusic, JioMoney, JioChat etc.

Jio customers have lots of ways to recharge with their favourite packs - on MyJio app or official Jio site or through JioMoney app or via PayTM and other recharge sites.

Check your Jio balance through a missed call to 1299


Jio being an all 4G LTE backed telecom operator, doesn't support USSD (i.e. you can't dial codes like *123# and check your balance).

You can always check your available Jio balance by opening the MyJio app on your smartphone but there is another way to check it. And that is by giving a missed call to 1299.

Follow below steps :-

Step 1. Go to your phone dialer and place a missed call to the number 1299

Step 2. After ringing for few seconds, the call will get automatically disconnected

Step 3. You'll immediately get an SMS explaining the plan (with validity & available MB) activated on your Jio number like following screenshot

That's it. It's that simple.
