How to avoid Jio barcode expired/already redeemed problem?
There is no way to 100% fix this problem. But you can do one thing to minimize the barcode already redeemed issue.
Only generate bar code when you are about to buy Jio sim. Don’t generate it 10-15 days before as there is high risk of getting used by others.
Or, you can create unlimited codes in single phones using some tricks mentioned below.
How to get multiple sim card with single Jio barcode?
This is not an ethical method but if you want, you can give it a try. All you need is recently generated jio bar code. Then go to local sim sellers (not Reliance official digital xpress stores). Buy sim with that barcode & then ask seller to register another one. This time, you have to change last 3 digits of previous code.You can repeat this method & grab new sim every time.
Note : An individual can purchase maximum 9 Jio sim on his identity.

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.
Jio Barcode expired solution
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.
Can I generate Jio Offer Code on 2G/3G Phone?
May be yes! Read this paragraph to know more about this method. It’s already working fine on iPhone & samsung phones.
How to Re Generate Jio Barcode?
- Close the MyJio & kill all the apps running in background.
- Again open MyJio & wait for few seconds. It will show you the code in slider.
- If it’s still not showing, then perform following procedure.
- Go to settings > application manager > MyJio.
- Clear all data including cache.
- Now open the app to get your Jio offer code.
Can I create barcode on 3G phone?
No trick can generate coupon code on 3G or 2G smartphones.
How to Get Jio Barcode in iPhone?
- Click here to download Jio barcode app from itunes store. It is 50 MB in size.
- Open it & sign up for new account.
- Enter existing mobile number & verify it with OTP.
- Now you should be able to generate the coupon code.
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:
- Get a new code using the trick given here.
- 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.
Is it necessary to use Jio sim in phone on which I generated barcode?
Not at all! I bought sim using friend’s barcode & then inserted sim in my phone. It works absolutely fine. Just put it in a 4G phone & you are good to go.
