Reliance Jio is taking telecom world by storm, and there is no reason for Lumia users not to get excited. Many Lumia (Windows Phone, Windows 10 Mobile) users have asked us if they can use the Reliance Jio SIM card on their Lumia phone to enjoy unlimited calling and data access. The short answer is – Yes, but with limitations. Continue reading to learn more.
Does Reliance Jio Work on Lumia Phones?
If you have a Lumia phone with 4G support, the Jio SIM will work in the device. The limitation, however, is that you will be able to use ONLY data services and will not be able to make voice calls.
Most of the current Lumia phones have no support for VoLTE (Voice over LTE) which Jio uses to connect calls. No VoLTE support implies an inability to make voice or video calls. A few models (like the Lumia 950) which have hardware support for VoLTE have it disabled via software, and only an OTA update from Microsft can enable the service. We are not sure if (and when) Microsoft will bother enabling it.
Android phones can make voice calls without VoLTE via the Jio4GVoice app. Unfortunately, such an app is not available for Windows devices. Hence, Lumia phones can presently only use data services and not make voice calls.
How to Get the Jio SIM Card?
Reliance Jio is only offering SIM cards to users who present the barcode generated via the MyJio app. Since the app is only available for Android and iOS devices, Windows Phone users cannot directly generate the code. However, if you manage to get a SIM card, you will be able to make use of the SIM on your Lumia phone for accessing data services. A suggested workaround is:
- Make use of one of the eligible Android devices to generate a barcode. You can use a phone of your friend or a family member. However, one IMEI number is only eligible to get 1 SIM and hence the barcode will be unusable for the second time.
- Use the barcode to get the SIM card.
- Activate the SIM in the phone from which the barcode was generated.
- Start using the Jio SIM in your Lumia phone when the welcome offer gets activated.
Settings to Use 4G Data Services
- Now open Setting.
- Then open Cellular Data>SIM Setting> Enable 4G only.
- Tap on SIM setting and Create a New APN.
- Now simply add setting given below:
APN – Jionet
IP Type – Ipv4
Leave other fields and save APN.
Alternatively, you can generate a barcode by rooting the Android device and then using a random IMEI number. That way you’ll be able to get more than 1 SIM from the same device.

The Lumia 640 does not support VoLTE, hence voice calls will not work. There’s no workaround to enable that.

The issue is regarding supported bands. So you can try using a SIM and see if the phone is able to connect on the bands available in your circle.

Unfortunately there is no trick, Ankit. Lumia 535 is not capable of connecting to 4G networks. Jio is a 4G-only network.

Hello narendra…. Am windows user.
My device is Nokia Lumia 625, and it’s 4g device in connection list.
Just tell me that. Data 4g service will work or not. On my Lumia 625 device. I knw how to add VPN Bt ans me.. At my question plz.
Rohit, do you have the box of your phone with you? Can you check the listed LTE frequency bands there? I checked the specs of Lumia 625 and it seems it supports bands 3, 7 & 20.
On the other hand, Jio operates on bands 3, 5 & 40. The band 3 matches, but Jio does not have a pan India spectrum under band 3. So, if your phone supports band 3, you can try your luck and see if your circle has Jio LTE deployment under band 3.
i have lumia 625.. it supporte.. except volte…dont worry

All windows phone users give feedback to Microsoft about this issue. If they see and solve its ok else RIP
There are already a few threads open with Microsoft answers, but they don’t really pay attention to people outside of the USA.
i have lumia 920 at&t with 4g lte support. i am able to use data bt i cant make any calls even the call to 1977. what should i do?
There is no support for VoLTE on the device. So you cannot make any calls.

Hi I am using nokia Lumia 1320 I am using data pack but voice call not workig.and one more thing I can’t able to download any jio apps in my mobile if u have any idea plz help me.
You cannot make calls since the phone does not have native support for VoLTE.
For Jio apps, they are not developed for Windows. So you cannot install them on your phone.
I have a Lumia 535 …can I use jio sim in this…?
No. The Lumia 535 does not have any 4G bands.
I have 625 lumia but i cant generate the bar code how to get bar code in lumia handset plzz any help me plzzz
Sir Nokia Lumia 520 Mai jio 4g sim chalega kya?
No. Lumia 520 is not a 4G capable device.
Mera lumia 1020 4g completable hai
how can n97 nokia supporting jio apps and sim.
Nokia N97 does not have any 4G capabilities. The Jio SIM will not work with it.
I have use blu win jre LTE windows mobile. I have activate jio sim in windows mobile. Then put windows mobile. Manually configure APN setting. I have use internet only. Calling drop.
Yes. VoLTE is most probably not available on your device.
VoLTE is a software upgrade program. if Microsoft release any update for VoLTE. it should be good work.
Not really. VoLTE is a combination of hardware and software. If a SoC has hardware support for handling VoLTE data, it can be enabled by software updates, if the hardware doesn’t at all support it, it can’t be enabled.
Mine,lumia 625 cell.jio sim is activated but my cell not working
My friend is using in 625 it works good for data

Kya aapka sim chal raha h nokia 1320 me
How about Nokia 1020 is 4g phone but I don’t know how isn’t work in jio sim
It should work with data services. Unfortunately, voice will not work.
will it support lumia 625?
Kya karna hoga 640xl lte me chalane ke kiye hundi batayenge?
Lumia 640 XL does not have 4G support. Jio cannot receive network in your phone, so it won’t work at all.
The LTE Bands supported by 4G Lumia phones are different than those of Reliance Jio, hence they can not access the internet as well.
On which devices did you check? AFAIK, most of the devices sold by Microsoft in India (with 4G support) carry support for at least 1 of the band used by Jio. Now depending on the telecom circle and what spectrum Jio owns (and deploys) in that cirlce, the data services might or might not work.
