After the Reliance Jio has been launched in the market there have been rumours all over the internet, with people complaining about the call drops, 4GB data throttling and lot more. But out of all, the most buzzing rumour was that the Jio SIM will be blocking the SIM slot and no other SIM card will function when placed in the same slot in which the Jio SIM was placed earlier. The rumour says that the company is tracking the IMEI number of the device and hence will block the SIM slot from being access by other SIM services.
Firstly let me tell you that those are just “RUMOURS”! The Jio SIM cards are GSM services and are not CDMA service which will track the IMEI number and get paired with them. Which means that CDMA SIM cards will block the port from further access to any other service. Hence, since Jio is GSM service, the users can happy enjoy the Jio services and all another mobile network service when required in the same slots without any issues.
Some of the rumours also say that the tracking will be effective from 1st Jan 2017. That is the end of the preview or welcome offer of the Jio services. But the answer, in this case, is also the same. The SIM slots will not be affected in any manner and will not be prone to tracking. The users can happily interchange their SIM cards and utilise multiple telecom services whenever required.
