GENERAL
  • What happens if the network connection breaks or I get a call or SMS or have poor data connectivity while I'm playing the game?

    If you get a call or SMS while playing, do not exit the MyJio app, but continue playing after your call has ended. However, the question timer may have ended, in which case you will need to wait till the next question is asked on the App. In the event network connection breaks for any reason, you may not able to play the questions. Please remember to stay in an area with a good data connectivity when playing this game! And do try and avoid lifts, basements, tunnels and any other area where data connectivity could be poor!
  • If I change my phone number, can I continue to play the game?

    Your phone number is your identity in the MyJio app. Using a different phone number would mean you are a new participant to the Game. So, to maximise your points, stick to one phone number! And don’t play with another person's phone number.
