Jio: Reliance Jio to now allow carrying forward of credit limit from other operators! Reliance Jio has now decided to allow users to carry forward the credit limit from existing operators when porting their postpaid number to Jio. This would not come at any additional cost to the users. This comes soon after the telecom company announced multiple plans for JioPostpaid Plus in late September. These plans are available in several tiers with prices ranging between Rs 399 and Rs 1,499. These plans also come with complimentary subscriptions to various OTT platforms, including Disney+ Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video and the latest in the mix, Netflix Mobile.

Postpaid number port to Jio: How to carry forward credit limit

The users would be able to carry forward the credit limit in three steps.

  1. Users wishing to port their numbers to Jio must WhatsApp “Hi” to 88501-88501, making a special note that the WhatsApp message must be sent from the number they wish to port.
  2. After the first step has been completed, the users would have to upload the postpaid bill from the existing operator.
  3. After a 24-hour period has elapsed, users would be able to visit a Jio store, from where they would be able to collect their JioPostpaid Plus SIM card, along with the credit limit of their choice without having to pay the security deposit. Alternatively, users would also be able to call and schedule to receive their Jio postpaid SIM at home.
