Call Forwarding in Jio. How to Activate, Use & Deactivate it

A few years ago Reliance JIO Infocomm Limited launched VoLTE 4G services as their commercial telecommunication services and continuously expanding their network coverage and working on new technology and features and has more than 50% market share. However, sometimes due to the huge amount of users being active at a particular time the network gets congested and sluggish which ultimately leads to a bad signal. To eradicate this problem, JIO offers a Call Forwarding feature with which users can receive their JIO number by diverting or forwarding them to an alternative number. This JIO’s Call Forwarding services are presently available for the 4G network and users whose mobile supports this feature can use it.  

This feature is available to all major telecommunication network provider companies and you can use them very easily. In this article, we will only discuss JIO’S Call Forwarding feature.
