Jio 4G APN Settings for all Android Phones

APN settings need to be configured first on your 4G Android phone to enable the Jio data services. After inserting your SIM card on slot 1 specific data need to be typed and saved on your device manually if you have not received configuration SMS for automatic installation.

APN is abbreviated as Access Point Name which works as a gateway between your mobile device and network carrier to establish secured GSM / GPRS / 3G / 4G data connection. It helps to define which type of data service is required for user for example WAP (Wireless Application Protocol), MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service), GPRS (General Packet Radio Service), 3G and 4G.

The network carrier checks Proxy, Port, Username, Password, Server, MMSC, MMS Proxy, MMS Port, MCC, MNC, Authentication type, APN Type, APN Protocol, APN roaming protocol, bearer and MVNO value under APN settings to establish the required data service. Here common definition to understand each value of access point.
