Reliance Jio Started Mobile Number Portability,Here is how you can switch to Jio without changing your primary number.
Mukesh Ambani’s much awaited Reliance Jio has officially been launched. This service will be rolled-out for all, starting from September 5th under the name of Welcome offer and will be free until December 31, 2016. The company hope that the rival companies will work in harmony with Jio to achieve Prime Minister Modi’s vision of Digital India.
The company said in a statement that the company looks forward to co-operation and working together with the rival companies to achieve the vision of Digital India. “We appreciate the announcements made by the incumbent operators welcoming us to the industry and assuring that they will fulfil all their regulatory obligations. We expect the incumbent operators to fulfil their regulatory obligations in the letter and spirit,” the company added.
As part of its free Welcome offer, it is also possible to port in an existing mobile number to jio. Clearly, RIL wants more and more customers to switch to Jio, which may not be very good news for incumbent companies. Now any one can switch to Jio using MNP(Mobile Number Portability) without changing their existing number.
