JIO Free 4G Sim For Everyone
Update – 1st Sept 2016 – Reliance JIO has started offering Free 4G sim to everyone with a 4G enabled smartphone (checklist of devices which will get the 4G offer). This is for the 3-month offer but Mukesh Ambani has announced that JIO will give Free 4G sim to everyone for 1 month.
Reliance JIO will offer the free 4G sim to everyone for 1 month as announced by Mukesh Ambani today at the Reliance JIO Annual general body meeting in Mumbai. The free 4G Sim from JIO will be available from September 5 to everyone. He also announced the data and voice offers from the company – JIO 4G data plans will be affordable and 1 GB 4G data will cost Rs. 50 to Rs. 100 based on the plans.
Mukesh Ambani has also shared the customers will not be charged for Voice calls or for roaming, they will be charged for data or voice but not for both. No Charges will apply until December end. (this point needs some more clarification if they would give data and voice free for the next 4 months to everyone or only to JIO 4G preview customers and charge for data plans from October 2016 from non-smartphone partner customers.)

You may need to carry a copy of your address proof and identity proof along with 1-2 passport size photos to avail the offer. Also you may like to enquire locally on call before going to the store if they have the sims in stock and are giving the free sim in your city.
While the offer is for pan India there may be supply issues for sim cards as the volumes are going to be large.
Reliance JIO has not yet launched the service commercially and this is the carnage ahead of full launch which is also not far away.
The free offer is great for the consumers but other telecom companies are having a hard time retaining their customers in the face of JIO storm.
