Will mobile number have to be changed to join 5G network?

There is a question in the mind of many people that they do not have to change their mobile number or SIM card to join the 5G network. Gadgets360Hindi spoke to Airtel and Jio about this. Both have confirmed to us that users will neither need to change the SIM card nor the mobile number. Companies have said that their 4G sims are 5G enabled. Users will have to go to the settings of their phone and select the option of 5G network. One thing to note here is that only those users will be able to switch to 5G network, whose device supports 5G network.

That is, if your smartphone is not 5G, then even with SIM 5G enabled, you will not be able to connect to this network. In the last almost 2 years, mobile companies have launched 5G smartphones very fast. Brands like Samsung, Xiaomi, Realme and Vivo are offering 5G smartphones under Rs 15,000.
