[Solved with latest update] Having trouble while receiving SMS on Redmi Note 8 Pro with Jio? You’re not alone
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on December 26, 2019) follows:
Redmi Note 8 Pro is designed to take the market of mid-range smartphones by storm, just like its predecessors. The phone breaks from tradition a little bit, being powered by a MediaTek chip instead of a Snapdragon one from Qualcomm. Nonetheless, this Helio G90T SoC is quite a good performer.
It is no secret why this device is so popular in various regional markets, including India and many other Asian countries. Buyers in these regions are price-conscious so any device that delivers the most value for money is bound to be a winner.
However, Redmi Note 8 Pro users on Jio are not a happy lot. Many have been experiencing an annoying bug and a little trip on social media will give you an idea.
According to the user reports, Redmi Note 8 Pro units with Jio SIM are having issues receiving SMS. Yes, one of the fundamental pillars of cellular communication is allegedly broken.
The issue seems to be quite widespread among the Redmi Note 8 Pro community. Most importantly, the recent MIUI 11 update did not address this particular issue.
