How to Use Reliance Jio 4G VoLTE SIM in Intex Aqua Fish (Sailfish)

Intex’s Aqua Fish running Sailfish OS won’t have many takers, but the some that do would certainly want to enjoy the free Jio welcome offer on their devices. The Aqua Fish is certainly 4G enabled, and Jio SIM can work on the device. Sailfish OS doesn’t support VoLTE natively, hence making calls is a problem while data services do work seamlessly. The ideal setup is to use Jio for free 4G data service while using your other SIM card to make calls.

Setup to use Jio 4G Internet Data on Intex Aqua Fish

To use Jio internet on your phone, you need to set it as the default data SIM. You then need to set up correct APN (Access Point Name) so that the data connection can be made. Here’s how to do that step by step. Do note that you cannot make voice calls as Sailfish OS does not support VoLTE. The Jio 4G Voice app also fails to work.

  1. Insert the Jio SIM in your phone. We’re using Jio in the SIM1 slot in this tutorial, but you can use any.
  2. Open Settings > Cellular Network.
  3. Tap on Use SIM card and select SIM 1. Skip this step if you only have 1 SIM inserted into your phone.
  4. Tap on Data Access Point and enter the following settings:
    Connection name – Jio Internet (You can name it anything as per your convenience).
    Access point name – jionet
    Protocol – Dual
    Leave username and password blank. Entered data is saved instantly. Swipe from left to go to the previous screen.

  5. Tap on network mode and choose Prefer 4G.
    cellular-network-settings-sailfish
  6. Finally, tap on Jio Internet at the top (unless you used a different name for connection name) to connect to the internet using your Jio SIM card.

You can now launch the Sailfish browser and start browsing the internet using Jio SIM card. In case the connection isn’t working and your device has no signal, please confirm that Jio service is available in your vicinity and that you have set the network mode to Prefer 4G. Do a manual scan for networks if it still doesn’t receive any network.

    Not support on my phone Aqua Fish, Devices on jio sim please tell me any setting

    • Narender Singh November 4, 2016 at 10:03 am #

      Are you receiving network when you insert the Jio SIM to your phone?

      • Linto Paul November 4, 2016 at 12:31 pm #

        I am getting Network but when I try to connect to internet I am getting “problem with connection” message..

        • Narender Singh November 4, 2016 at 7:15 pm #

          Can you please check again that your Access Point is correctly set? It should be jionet or jiodata in small letters.

    • Niloy Baidya November 5, 2016 at 4:57 pm #

      Same problem in my intex aqua fish phone , because, when you get jio sim i think your barcode no is changing by mistake sim distributer, you should buy a new sim by your proper barcode and then go to setting >cellure network>data accesspoint>write ‘jionet’ in the accesspoint name.

      Use jio sim in second sim slot

  2. Rajesh November 3, 2016 at 3:54 pm #

    Problem in connection is showing notifications and jio net is not working

    • Narender Singh November 4, 2016 at 10:01 am #

      Rajesh, can you re-confirm that the APN is correctly set? Because that’s possibly the only thing that can cause this.

  3. Devendra kumar November 4, 2016 at 11:36 pm #

    This setting is not working

    • Narender Singh November 5, 2016 at 12:03 am #

      Why not? Can you please confirm if Jio makes use of a different APN in your circle? Because here in Punjab, jionet is what they use.

    Whats the use of buying this phone if it doesn’t support jio sim… I m fed up, very disappointed. How can i use jio sim please help

    • Narender Singh November 13, 2016 at 11:33 am #

      As Sailfish does not support VoLTE yet, you cannot make voice calls. You can either use SIM from a different operator or use only data with Jio.

      • Alok December 7, 2016 at 2:07 pm #

        will next update of sailfish os support jio4gvoice calling

        • Narender Singh December 7, 2016 at 7:11 pm #

          There is no such announcement yet. We need to wait and watch. However, there is a very low chance since.

  13. dippi November 14, 2016 at 10:18 am #

    But even data is not working…when I Connect the internet, it shows problem with connection. I specially bought this phn for using jio sim…but not working. Is there any updates coming in future

    • Narender Singh November 14, 2016 at 11:36 am #

      What version of Sailfish OS are you running on your phone? Because data connection works just fine for me πŸ™‚

  14. dippi November 14, 2016 at 12:26 pm #

    I just updated with Sailfis OS Aurajoki ,version 2.0.2.51

    • Narender Singh November 15, 2016 at 1:48 pm #

      Please recheck your APN and data SIM settings. Because it worked fine for me with 2.0.2.51.

  15. Suraj November 14, 2016 at 5:29 pm #

        • Narender Singh December 4, 2016 at 4:34 pm #

          Your phone is not selfish. But, yes you cannot generate the code on the Sailfish phone. You need to generate it using an Android phone.

      Sailfish does not support VoLTE yet. So I guess you’ll have to live up without calling.

    It’s not working on roaming jio. Can you tell this for roaming jio?

    • Narender Singh December 8, 2016 at 12:07 pm #

      It works fine in roaming too. make sure that the roaming region has Jio coverage and that you’ve set the cellular data to ‘Allow’ for roaming.

  33. venkat December 8, 2016 at 1:37 pm #

    Mr Narendar,nice to chat with u.i have read all the comments n its good.
    i am one of the user from intex aqua fish.i have received JIO sim frm releance digital recently but unable to connect with data.my OS is upgraded with 2.0.4.14 / Fiskarsinjoki.

    Could u mine, help me out from this problem,bcz i have given this device to dearest brother as a gift,.ow he is fully disappointed due to JIO.

    Network registered n signal strength also good but unable to enable the data.

    • Narender Singh December 8, 2016 at 2:24 pm #

      If you have configured the access point properly, it should just work fine. Please confirm that your access point is good and that you’ve selected the SIM with Jio as the ‘Active Data SIM’. Select it again even if it is already selected.

  34. aishwarya koli December 9, 2016 at 4:49 pm #

    its not working in sim2 also…
