Jio customers can activate ISD on their connection to start making international calls. You can use the international subscriber dial-up service (commonly referred to as ISD) to use different rates. However, Jio customers will get a dedicated ISD package that includes a fixed talk time, allowing customers to make calls outside of India for a few minutes directly from their local network. In addition to calling, telecom operators also allow their customers to send ISD SMS messages. Jio claims to provide ISD services in 230 countries/regions with more than 14,000 area codes.
How to activate ISD on Jio
Jio has the Global ISD Combo 501 Pack, which is priced at Rs. 501, both prepaid and postpaid customers can use. After using the dedicated ISD package to recharge, Jio prepaid and postpaid users can make ISD calls through their phones by adding “+” and the area code in front of the international phone number.
The Jio ISD package includes Rs. 424.58 talk time, valid for 28 days. This call time is used to make ISD calls and send ISD SMS messages. The ISD package also includes five ISD SMS messages that can be used throughout the validity period.
For detailed information about the call rates for each supported country/region, please visit the Jio website. In addition, the operator charges ISD SMS messages at the price of Rs. 5 per message.
For Jio prepaid customers, the Global ISD Combo 501 Pack will be available in the queue-just like any regular add-on pack, it will be activated after dialing an international number. However, once post-paid users are activated on their connection, they will get an ISD package as part of their monthly bill.
Both Jio prepaid and postpaid customers can activate the ISD package through the MyJio app. You can also purchase the product package for prepaid and postpaid accounts through the Jio.com website.
If you have a Jio Fiber connection, you can also make ISD calls through Rs. 501 packages. It can be used by Jio Fiber customers through the MyJio application and the Jio.com website. There is one more rupees. 502 ISD’s plan on Jio Fiber can bring 1,500 minutes of talk time to the United States and Canada for a period of 30 days.
