FAQ about the Jio Postpaid tariff plans
Are these the full and final charges for postpaid customers?
No, on Postpaid tariffs applicable taxes will be charged. The Postpaid subscribers opting for the Auto-debit option using credit/debit cards/online transfer to pay their monthly mobile phone bill and opting for e-bill will be accorded an additional 15% discount on the bill value.
Will making voice calls use my data?
No, according to the Jio website, you are not going to be charged to use the data while making voice calls. It will be a call on data but the data costs won’t apply on the calls, thus they will be free. Video calls are a different scenario where you will see the data costs being applied.
What’s the timing for Night Unlimited offer that is bundled on most of the packs?
The unlimited data at night will be timed from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. Yep, quite an odd timing but that is what Reliance is offering as the Night unlimited plan.
