Problems Faced While Generating Jio Barcode & Common Issues

What is the validity of barcode?

When you get the coupon, validity is mentioned just below it. If you have generated coupon in September month, then most probably it will be valid till 31st December 2016.

Reliance is extending validity of unused codes. I had generated code on 2nd September which was valid till 15th Sep. But when I opened it again few days back, validity was set back to 31st Dec.

How to download Jio Bar Code?

There is no way to download offer code, but you can take the screenshot & save it safely in your phone storage. This is very important step because I have seen many people who didn’t got barcode when they opened myJio app for 2nd time.

I lost my Jio barcode, how to get it back?

Uninstall MyJio app & install it again. You should see your old barcode. If this is not working, then simply go to settings & clear app data.

Update : Now, MyJio app is automatically taking screenshot of code which can be found in Gallary > pictures.

Still, if you are not getting success, try the unlimited barcode trick mentioned above.

My Offer Code is Already Redeemed

Why this happened? Here is the reason:

Suppose I have generated jio barcode with series ending with ******567 & bough the sim card. Now local sellers (I’m not talking about Digital Xpress store) just change last few number ******678 & on that code, they provide new sim to other customers.

To be honest, I have bought 3 sim cards without having my own barcode! (I didn’t wanted to do this though). My friend generated fresh code & together we bought 5 sim just by changin last few digits.

So, if your barcode is already redeemed then this is solely the reason behind issue. Someone might have randomly tried a code and probably that was yours!

Now you have 2 options to deal with this problem:

  1. Get a new code using the trick given here.
  2. Search for another phone on which you have never installed My Jio.

I signed up with different name & number, Can I get sim on my details?

It doesn’t matter which personal details you enter in MyJio app (like name, mobile number, birth date etc). At the end, what all you need is Jio barcode. Once generated, you can register sim on any person’s name using that code.

    • Same here. I purchased one MiFi Device on 3rd September from nearest Reliance Digital Express Mini. Today it is 15th September and my SIM is still inactive. I have mailed Reliance as well but no reply. I called them several times as well and lodged two complains. But no positive reply or result. Every day I am calling, either they are giving me fail assurance that my SIM will be activated within today or they are saying I am updating your issue in complaint section. It will be resolved within next 48 hours.
