About Reliance Jio JioFi
The JioFi is a personal hotspot – the kind of thing you’ve seen some all mobile carriers. The Reliance JioFi is a small device that will fit into your pocket, and acts as a bridge between the 4G network and a local Wi-Fi network that it creates, which your phone, laptop, and other devices can connect to. It’s a very simple way of getting your home online, and it comes with a rechargable battery – that means that you can plug it in at home, or put it in your pocket and take your connection with you when you head out.
Interestingly, you can use the Jio Join app on your phone to place calls or send messages through the JioFi. This means that even if your phone does not support 4G, you can make full use of Reliance Jio’s network thanks to the JioFi.
The Reliance JioFi comes with a Reliance Jio SIM that, once activated, can be used to connect to the network. You can of course use SIM cards of other operators in the JioFi if needed, though obviously you will need to pay for usage on that network.
How to Buy Reliance Jio JioFi
Just go to the nearest Reliance Digital/ Reliance Digital Xpress Mini store and purchase a JioFi. You’ll need to carry a passport photo, one photo ID, and an address proof. Once you fill out the forms the number will be activated, and you’ll have to call 180089011977 for tele verification – the exact steps are given on the package and it’s pretty straightforward.
The store executives say that the process should happen within four hours, though in our experience with getting two Reliance Jio connections activated, it took more than a day each time.
How to use Reliance Jio JioFi
Get a JioFi hotspot device and connect your 2G/3G smartphone with the Wi-Fi hotspot of JioFi device. And, on your smartphone, just download the Jio4GVoice app from Google Play Store (available for free) and setup it. The application will login automatically if you’re connected to the JioFi hotspot device, if not, it will show an error as it can be used only via Jio 4G network.
Now, that being said, after logging into the application, you can easily make and receive calls. Before that make a note as the calls which you make from the Jio4GVoice app will be received from the number placed in the JioFi hotspot device and vice versa.
This is an official method rolled out from the company itself, but several users have been using this as a trick from the initial release of the JioFi device itself. As of now, Jio is allowing all the non-VoLTE users to make and receive calls with the Jio4G Voice.
Reliance JioFi Price and tariff plans
The JioFi is priced at Rs. 1,999, down from its earlier price of Rs. 2,899 and data is free to use until 31st march 2017. As of now, the company has made no statement about what the plans will be post that date.

Many people are just getting a Jio SIM and then switching on the Wi-Fi hotspot on their phones. The problem with this is that it drains the phone’s battery, and thus limits the usefulness. That’s where the JioFi comes into the picture.
