You might have read that the Jio free offer which has been around for the past one year by different names is going to end by March 31st, and the subscription for Jio Prime membership has already started. So have you decided to keep your Jio number or ditch it?

Many users including me have grabbed more than one Jio SIM when everything was for free. Now it’s high time to get rid of those extra SIMs, keep one or none. So here is how to ditch or cancel or suspend or deactivate your Jio Number.

Jio users fall into two categories, prepaid and postpaid. Since you don’t even know your Jio number you might’ve already forgotten which category you are, and it’s a funny fact. First things first, read on to find your category.

How to find whether your Jio number is prepaid or postpaid?

  1. Download and Install My Jio App from Google Play store, don’t say you already have it, lol.
  2. Open My Jio App and tap on My Jio icon.
  3. Tap sign in with the sim or wait for autologin or use your pre-created credentials.
  4. Swipe from left to open menu and tap on My plans.
  5. Your Jio number category is under the plan details tab (Prepaid Recharge or Postpaid).
  6. You can also see the status of your Prime membership in the next tab.
  7. You can also visit Jio.com website, and scroll down my plans to view the details.

Now that you’ve found your number type, let’s move on to the steps to deactivate or suspend the number.
