Can I Use Jio SIM on Windows Phone?

You already know that there is no official option or method to use jio service on windows phone. However, due to the advantages of the technology, we can take a look at the possible solutions for using the jio service on windows phone. As per Jio’s claim, Irrespective of the phone manufacturer, the Jio SIM supports calling on any 4G enabled VoLTE device. The question that comes here is that the LTE supported windows phone does not support calling feature because there is no jio join app or jio4GVoice app available for windows LTE phones.

In my opinion, you can use jio SIM on your window’s phones. Provided your Windows Lumia phone must meet the criteria for using Jio SIM card. Jio is a pure 4G network. Hence, your windows mobile must be 4G enabled.

Again here comes another classification. The 4G enabled phones are of two types:

LTE (Long Term Evolution)

If you are wondering what is LTE, take a look at the definition of LTE by webopedia below:

An acronym for Long Term Evolution, LTE is a 4G wireless communications standard developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) that’s designed to provide up to 10x the speeds of 3G networks for mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, notebooks and wireless hotspots.
If your windows phone is a 4G LTE phone, you can only use the internet at high speed. However, you will not be able to place or receive calls. It is because RJIL has not yet released the jio4GVoice App for windows platform.

VoLTE (Voice Over Long Term Evolution)

VoLTE means Voice over Long Term Evolution. The difference between LTE and VoLTE technology is the ability to place and receive HD (High Defenition) Calls. If your windows phone is a 4G VoLTE phone, you can use the same to use the internet and place high definition calls.

How to Activate Jio SIM on Windows Lumia 4G/VoLTE Phone and Use the Internet?

For using Jio SIM on 4G enabled LTE or 4G VoLTE windows phone, I suggest you activate a Jio SIM using an Android Mobile. Once activated, you can insert the SIM on your windows phone and start using the internet. You need to enable the high-speed network /4G/LTE/VoLTE network for Jio SIM to work on your window’s phone.

Steps to Enable 4G LTE or VoLTE on Windows Phone

  • Open Phone Settings on your windows phone and navigate to the Network Settings option
  • Look for the options related to 4G or Highest connection 
  • Create Jio APN account. Name: jionet and APN: jionet
  • Save and Activate the Jionet APN.
  • Power cycle the mobile by restarting.

You will be able to use the Internet on your phone now.
