Reliance Jio preview offer is enjoying the popularity it has received over the last few weeks. After limiting the unlimited 4G data, calls and messages to just LYF smartphones initially, Reliance has opened gates to various third-party smartphone brands.
The extension of Reliance Jio Preview offer now covers India's most popular 4G smartphone brands, including, Micromax, Samsung, LG, YU, Asus, Panasonic, TCL and Alcatel. A lot of other brands such as Xiaomi, Lenovo, Motorola and Apple are still not eligible for the free Jio 4G SIM offer, but considering the trend, it is likely to happen sooner than later.
In order to get a free Reliance Jio 4G SIM, you must own a 4G-ready smartphone from any of the aforementioned brands. Then download and open MyJio app from Google Play Store and tap on "Get Jio SIM" banner. Follow the simple on-screen instructions to generate an offer code and walk into the nearest Reliance Digital store with a valid proof of identity and address to get the free Jio 4G SIM card.

We have noticed that some of the partner smartphones are not getting the "Get Jio SIM" option in the MyJio App. We have reached out to the company for clarification and we'll update readers on this soon. But on the activated SIM cards, the 4G data service is truly impressive. JioOnDemand is a great place to watch HD movies without the need to sign up or pay any subscription fee. There is no question of buffering as the Jio connection takes care of that.
