India’s biggest telecom incumbent Airtel and other networks, Vodafone, Idea, Aircel, and more were in deep pressure due to Jio affordable plans and welcome offers. Mobile number portability seems to be big deal for Jio. These networks receive a lot a port requests for Jio, thus to hold customers, these networks are putting forth better deals and offers.

The process to get a new Jio SIM card is very clean and simple. If you have two things in hand – 4G enabled smartphone and a valid Aadhar card, simply walk in to a nearest Reliance Digital or Xpress Store to get your new Jio SIM card.

Prior to that, you need to generate a bar code to get new SIM card. Simply download My Jio App from Google Play Store or other platforms, launch the app,  enter your basic details, and the bar code will be generated.

You need to enter the One Time Password (OTP) that was sent to your registered number in order to generate bar code. This is where Airtel exhibits its cruelty.

There are a lot of complaints about Airtel on online customer forums that OTP is not receiving on Airtel number. People are able to receive OTP on other networks, but the same is not happening with Airtel.

While People claim that Airtel is blocking Jio OTP messages, I tried personally on my number and initiated Jio preview offer claim on my Airtel number and I finally received it after a couple of endeavors. The claim is not valid as people say. It might be server overload, or network issues.

If we think, otherwise it may happen but not to a greater extent. I recommend you to try generating bar code using Airtel number, no less than few times; you’ll unquestionably get it by either time.
