How to use Jio 4G Voice App to make VoLTE Calls on iPhone 5s & 5C / iPhone 5 & 4

Reliance Jio has one of the best mobile data plans in the Indian Telecom market, but it has one drawback – Reliance Jio is a 4G only network and hence requires VoLTE enabled phones to make calls. Now, since all iPhones are single sim devices and considering iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5 & 4S do not support VoLTE, Jio cannot be used as the primary network for receiving calls. But not anymore, In this article, we will cover how you can use your Jio 4G Sim to make & receive calls on any iPhone, even iPhone 5S using the Jio 4G Voice app.

How to Dial & Receive Jio 4G Calls on iPhone 5S, 5C (iPhone 5 & 4S) using Jio 4G Voice App –

    I have airtel sim in my iPhone 5s but connected with jiofi3 with wifi.
    When I am launching jio4gvoice it is saying that you don’t have jio sim.

    Even if I am enabling airplane mode with wifi connected it is not registering my device with jiofi. Any clue how it will work for calling.

      Jio says you can use jio calling services by using jiofi, but this is a lie, you need to insert the jio sim in your iphone 5s to register the sim on your phone, and one more fact which no one is saying is you cant get incoming calls through the jio voice app, you can only make out going calls,. so whats the use if no one can call you, this app is an eye wash and simply waste of time, jio voice app has a rating of less than 2 stars

  2. Senthil says

    I have aircel sim in my iPhone 5s but connected with jiofi3 with wifi.

      Have you registered the jio-fi sim in my jio app in your phone? if u r using any other sim in your phone, register the jio sim (the one which is in jio-fi) in myjio app. You will have to use any 4g capable phone to get the otp.Once registered then open jio 4g voice app after connecting to jio-fi..

  19. Amit Roy says

    Everyone is right! I have an iPhone 7 Plus and I have gone mad trying for it but same error. It doesn’t work with JioFi for making calls

    • says

      If you look at the description of the Jio4gVoice app on appstore it says ***No support for jiofi***
      so jiofi cannot be used for calling on iphones it can only be used as a wifi hotspot

  20. S K Dubey says

    Jio4Gvoice is working fine with 5S and data tethering is also very good. But incoming call is not activating the screen and fone is also not ringing.

    I am using JioFi, I installed Jio4GVoice app on my iPhone 5 then I am trying to open Jio4GVoice to make calls but whenever I am opening Jio4GVoice app it is saying “Jio SIM not detected. Please insert a Jio SIM and retry”. Any suggestion or configuration to use Jio4GVoice app on my iPhone 5.

    • Ravi Mahadevan says

      Please read the entire detail of the app. IT DOES NOT SUPPORT JIOFI.
      Who ever says that it supports, need a real thorough check again on their equipment.
      I would also be happy to see how they do.

  29. Shailesh Latkar says

    Connected to my JioFi Router via WiFi on my iPhone 6, but when I open the Jio4GVoice app, it immediately pops up an error saying “Jio SIM not detected. Please insert a Jio SIM and retry” what do I do? I already have an Airtel number on the iPhone, and wanted to use the wifi connection with the JioFi to make calls…..

  30. Gopal says

    Just now activated the 4Gvoice app on MotoG Android phone using JIOFI.
    However when trying to activate on iPhone6 it shows the same error reported above “JIO sim not detected pls insert JIO sim and retry.”
    Seems to be an issue only with iPhone

    • says

      If you look at the description of the Jio4gVoice app on appstore it says ***No support for jiofi***
      so jiofi cannot be used for calling on iphones it can only be used as a wifi hotspot
