Let me explain…

Reliance Jio is a 4G sim and uses VoLTE (Voice over LTE) for calling. Few telecom operators at that time provided 4G services. People mostly had 3G and 2G sims. Once they used Reliance Jio which used LTE and switched to 3G/2G, they were unable to use them. The problem was nothing but lack of knowledge. And the solution was simple; change the network mode back to 3G/2G. People who didn’t know this, started spreading rumours that Reliance Jio locks sim card slot.
