Guys, I think I should clear the Jio on Redmi 2 Prime confusion.
See, Jio is a 4G only network, that's why its so cheap to run its towers for Jio company. Its just a data only network, all the data usage/ modem work happens on the phone. So, some pointers are as below:-
1. After using Jio, some of your phone settings including APN get changed. So, when you go for a SIM change (to Airtel, for example), go to Airtel office and tell them that I used Jio before, and please configure Airtel sim for me... They will do it for you, nice and easy. I've myself done it.
Ask them the process too.
Its same for other network. If you're using them for a while, Jio might not work perfectly ok. In that case, ask Jio staff to configure it... Always restart phone after config.
2. Technically, 4G is "data only" network. BUT, Voice calling is possible on Jio's 4G only network, it is through Voice over LTE (VoLTE) feature.
Redmi 2 supports voice calling on Jio, on its latest software version. There's a setting for it.
This option is not available on the old versions though. I tested myself.
3. Jio normally works only on SIM 1 slot, because in SIM 2 slot, it first tries to hook onto 2G, then 3G, and finally 4G. For other companies, it goes ok, because they have 2G and 3G towers too. For Jio, it doesn't work that way, because they have only 4G network and SIM 2 doesn't directly jump to 4G...
So relax and try the above pointers.....

Look Guys .... Best camera in whole redmi series! Dosen't matters even if only 8 MP , it clearly defeats rn3 & redmi 3s Prime . Sound is nice (both headphones & speakers). Performance way better than redmi 3s. And is the 1st XIAOMI Unit that made Xiaomi popular in India ~
Consider that too ...

It's a xiaomi problem, and specifically with the redmi 2. not jio's fault. I was able to solve it by swapping the non-jio sim around in different slots. eventually it will work.
