According to the prepaid listings on Jio website, the shorter validity plans are no longer available for subscription. The dedicated section for JioPhone plans wherein ‘Shorter Validity’ plans were listed no longer lists it signaling the culling of the plans. Both the shorter validity prepaid plans were there until yesterday but have been taken down earlier today.

OnlyTech checked up the prepaid listings within MyJio app on a JioPhone number as well which isn’t reflecting the plan. The prepaid plans have been discontinued within 5 months of introduction.

  1. Stupid move. You discourage poor users from connecting with 4G when you take away affordable plans. This is why everyone prefers to stay away from a Jio phone despite it costing only ₹699 which is half the price of any 2G feature phone. Because of bad tactics

    • Exactly! Jio has got full of bad tactics, the ones which we are getting to see is just the starting. In the coming days you will get to see Jio being greedier than no other operators.

  2. Its unfortunate to see Jio doing this. Jio’s subscriber base increased because of the jio phone users and its like slowly killing them.

    I would say Jio phone is a scam. Actually a user has no control over his/her Jio phone as the phone’s software update controls everything and the bloody ads. Why was a user bearing all these things just because he could make calls at a very affordable price, now with these packs disappearing they would rather move to other networks leaving the shitty jio phones aside.

    In one word Jio phone is a shit & people will lose trust on Reliance by these means.
