Here is the fact behind that:
Can Jio lock your sim slot or phone?
Absolutely NO. Jio sim is just a sim card, similar to what Idea, Airtel, Vodafone etc. provide to you. A mobile operator cannot lock a SIM slot using a small memory device like SIM card. Also your phone is running on one of the most secured smartphone OS in the world, Android. To lock an Android phone one have to take root access and install their software in it. MyJio app is not that kind of software and it don’t need root access to the phone.

Why imei number is been taken when you took a jio connection?
First let us make it clear, imei number and the associated details are already exposed to the operator when you using a sim of any operator. Jio used to ask for IMEI number when the offer was limited to few smartphone manufactures. This was to ensure your device was eligible for offer. Jio no longer ask for IMEI number nor it is required to get Jio SIM.

Why other SIM cards won’t work after you use Jio sim?
Jio is a 4G network and when you use Jio SIM you yourself had put your phone to 4G only mode in networking settings. So once you take out the Jio SIM you forgot to set it back to 2G/3G mode. This is the only reason why other SIM cards are not working after using Jio SIM.
