Jio is one of the largest telecom operators in India. It offers a variety of plans for both prepaid and postpaid users. You can easily get a Jio SIM and activate your number to start using its services. Not only a does Jio offer physical SIM cards, it also offers eSIM or Embedded Subscriber Identity Module facility for smartphones that support it.
An eSIM allows smartphone manufacturers to save space in a device so they can add other useful features. It also makes any task that requires removal of a physical SIM obsolete as changes can be made by operators remotely.
As of now, only Apple, Samsung, Google, and Motorola have eSIM functionality with Jio. There are a few steps involved when it comes to activating an eSIM as it is not as straight forward as activating a physical SIM.
The steps differ between manufacturers so we have put together a step by step guide on how you can activate your Jio eSIM with any of the four manufacturers. Firstly, you will have to visit the nearest Jio Store, Reliance Digital, or Jio Retailer to ask for a new SIM.
