  6. One query. I have put jiofi sim in 4g LTE enabled phone. Am able to make calls and send SMS but just not able to use data. Have restarted phone and is using default APN setting but the data is still not working. Can you help.

    1. Hi Amiy,

      Only Voice call will work in 4G phone if you insert JiFi sim to any other 4g mobile. Data won’t work before your preview offer expires.

      After the last date of preview offer, insert JiFi sim to any 4G mobile > C0nnect mobile to WiFi internet> Check MyJio app > If it shows welcome offer then sim will work in 4g mobile otherwise use sim in Jiofi.

      Better don’t try to use in any 4G mobile – You may lose Preview offer in JioFi.

      Once you complete JioFi reset steps, follow this page : http://www.newstelecom.info/2016/08/jiofi-complete-setup-faq/ to finish rest of the settings.

      If you want to keep SSID open then better Hide it.

      For anything more feel free to add comment.

    1. This is common problem of JioFi users, don’t panic !
      Check JioFi box for default username & password and note down these information in secure place so that you never lose them in future.

      Now follow above steps to reset JioFi and use default login details to enter setup once again.

      Always remeber to add at least two MAC adress – One is always accessible & trusted – So that you can use that trusted device to reset others in case you forget details anytime further.

      1. Sir i forget to add MAC address. Now no device can be connected.. .what should i do now.. I cannt findout the reset button either

  55. To reset jiofi3 Follow the steps

    1, First remove your back cover of your jiofi3(and also make sure to don’t remove battery)

    2, Next take paper clip or sim card ejector( I strongly recommended you to don’t use safety pin, or any other sharp objects)

    3, you can see a small hole in the top of the battery. And that is the rest button.

    4, press and hold the button in the hole with sim card ejector while the LED Lights in the front start blink.(remove pin at the first blink)

    5, After it complete, the LED must be in red. It change after 5 Seconds

    6,You’re done!.Once the LED comes normally you can access your WIFI.
    With the default Jiofi ID & Password, the comes with the router and
    On its package.

    7, You can change your password and jio address by
    These Html- http://jiofi.local.htm

  94. Guys please give full step by step directions when you direct somebody and do not take into account the person’s commonsense to do the job because he/she will follow your directions as provided. So with that being said I will like to add a step between 5 and 6:

    STEP 5 1/2 :

    After you connect your wifi router again, you will be asked for a password again. This is the password that is written in the back of the product under the battery. That is, this is the password that came with the product.

    After this you follow step 6 as directed.
