There’s no denying that Reliance Jio has changed the face of the telecom industry since its debut back in 2016. Jio is the very reason people have access to 4G internet at extremely affordable prices making India have one of the largest internet user bases in the world. Additionally, this ever-growing network operator has always had an edge over other players in the market by offering 4G data, voice calling plans and a complementary suite of services at marginally lower prices. Seeing the benefits Jio has to offer, many people have made the switch by either going for a new mobile number or porting their existing one. But the thing with a new mobile number is that it can take time to get familiar with and memorize it. For that matter, Jio has rolled out methods using which you can know your number without much hassle.
How to check Jio number
It can be hard to remember your mobile number during the initial days of getting it. One should always have their number handy for mobile recharges, signups or simply to convey it to someone. So, in case, at any point in time you can’t recall your mobile number, here are some easy ways to check the same.
Jio number check using USSD code
This is one of the easiest ways to check and know your Jio number along with your recharge plan’s details such as remaining internet data and its expiry date. This doesn’t require any internet connection, unlike the previous method.
