'Balance Exhausted' Notice in Unlimited Reliance JIO SIM Card



  • If somebody can help, I recently purchased a reliance LYF smartphone and got the reliance JIO SIM card with it. I have the preview offer for 3 months, but I recently tried to use the SIM card in my other phone and it did not work - Said insufficient balance while calling and Balance Exhausted when I tried to connect to data services.

    Now I've placed the SIM back into my LYF smartphone but now only calls work. When I turn on data I read the same notification as Balance Exhausted. Please recharge. I tried to recharge via the My JIO app but it says this plan auto renews and cannot be recharged.

    Please help me get my data services back. Please.

    Vishal, that is pretty normal as I'm sure that you were already instructed by the store that this offer is only applicable with the bundled LYF smartphones. Trying to insert the SIM in another phone would stop the services. Services are resumed back fine for most of the users when they insert the SIM back to the LYF smartphone. IN your case, you need to call the helpline and open a Service Request regarding the barred data services. Their networking team will then recharge your number again to activate the unlimited data offer :)

    How is your SIM card issued? Under the Samsung offer or the LFT offer? For LYF, they will need to recharge your number again in order to activate the unlimited usage. You might be needed to go through the routine procedure of having them help in setting up the settings and Access Points on your phone before accepting to take a complaint for the issue.

    Hey all,

    You need to activate the unlimited in an eligible smartphone before putting the SIM to your device, if it still does not work, you need to change your IMEI to one of the eligible smartphones.
