JioFi 2 Dongle

Jio FAQ: Will Preview Offer get converted to Welcome Offer for JioFi SIM too?

We had earlier noticed that from September 5th, users will not be able to get unlimited full-speed 4G data on their Jio Welcome Offer SIM cards. It would be a limit of 4GB for high-speed 4G per day, and then you will be able to access the Internet at speeds of 128 kbps.

Now that you are getting the Jio Welcome Offer sim for no cost, getting even that amount of data is good enough. But then, this won’t be a good thing for JioFi users, because they paid to get the dongle and while buying, it was said that there will be unlimited data at 4G speeds. Is Reliance offering the same amount of data cap for JioFi device users as well?

JioFi 2 Dongle

Fortunately, we could confirm it with the Reliance Digital team here in Hyderabad that for the SIM cards that are activated for JioFi devices, the plan is different and you won’t be facing any data limit or cap, and you can download unlimited data during the period of Welcome Offer, that is going on right now until 31st December.

After that, it will be one of the plans that you will have to subscribe to, in order to continue using the Jio SIM, and we are not aware of any special data plans meant only for Wi-Fi hotspot users. So, from January 1st, you might end up with either the Jio Prepaid Plans, or the Jio Postpaid Plans.

Are you someone looking to buy the JioFi device and already has the question in your mind? Rest assured, the dongle works quite well and has a decent battery life. Also, the capacity to give good speeds to multiple devices will be helpful if you are planning to do that. Check out JioFi review to know more.

The JioFi 2 unit was earlier launched for Rs. 2899, and while several users were awaiting the activation of the SIM cards for their devices, Reliance has now reduced the price of the same dongle to Rs. 1999, which is a disappointment to those who are still waiting to see their devices activated.

Further for calling you can activate Jio Join as well. the device gives full day back up, so no hassles as of now.

A message is appear that I have exhausted my data. Why they have not given me unlimited data till 31st December, 2016 as advertised by them in newspaper as well as on their website. What is the procedure to get the offer benefit now.

  10. I have jiofi device and its got activated on welcome offer on sept 20 and it has limit of 4 gb after that it start running on 128 kbps
    If this news is correct then what happened to my jiofi device?

  11. After using jio fi for 8 days i can’t say there is limit of 4gb or not because i downloaded more than 20gb on sept 19 and i am regularly downloding more than 10gb per day with more than 1mbs speed but on 21 sept my speed was very slow .I don’t know what happened because if i had 4gb limit then i will get message from jio about my 4g usage and speed limit to 128 kbps.

    1. Even same thing happened with me today (23rd Sept, 2016). This is crazy. JioFi users paid for it and not receiving committed benefits.

  12. today i confirm jiofi has not unlimited it has a limit of 4gb high speed per day and then 128kbps which is too slow . Such a waste of money thinking of unlimited .

  13. I bought jiofi device today 25th September and also my jio sim is activated…my question is when I check my data it’s showing 2gb limit till 24th December…
    Please someone confirm that how to activate jio welcome offer as I don’t have 4g mobile, how to generate welcome code …or I need to call jio cc to activate welcome offer…
    Please someone confirm, m waiting for reply guys.

  14. Vivek you have to call cc for activatision of welcome offer they will ask for jiofi rsn no. and imei no. after that your welcome offer will start and i want to tell u don’t make any account in my jio and also in web page of jio. IF you do that then there is chance of unlimited 4g at maximum speed.
