FAQ on Jio Sim Slot not working Problems

In Which slot do I need to place Jio Sim ?

If you are using 4G LTE device then you should place Jio sim in 1st Slot, in some devices which support both LTE then you can place jio sim in 2nd slot too. But if your device supports only one 4G LTE then you must place in First Slot

How To Use Jio Sim 2nd Slot ?

Apart from 3G devices any 4G device holder can use Jio sim 2nd slot. Simply place the sim in 2nd slot it will detect the network setting and start working. Although I mentioned 3G holders can’t use 2nd sim slot, because the tricks which I mentioned on how to use jio sim in 3G will empty second slot. So if you place jio sim in 2nd slot it won’t detect at all.
