Be sure to know these things

Be alert if you get a message on the phone to upgrade from 4G to 5G. This message will contain a link, never click on this link.

In some cases, fraudsters are calling with the fake identity of a telecom company official. It is up to you to ask for an OTP over the phone. On giving this OTP, the person on the other end of the phone will claim a free 5G upgrade. But it is necessary to know that no such calls are made by the telecom company. Never tell anyone the OTP received on your number.

Delete the message asking to upgrade the 4G SIM to 5G on the phone. Such claims are completely false. Jio and Airtel have already said that customers can use 5G internet on a 4G sim.
