JioPhone: Now available on Amazon India

Reliance Jio and Amazon India on Friday announced that the popular Jio Phone (Review) feature phone, introduced past year as "India ka Smartphone", will now be available to buy from the e-commerce site.

Reliance JioPhone customers are recommended to check if the device is being sold by Reliance Digital and fulfilled by Amazon, before booking. The JioPhone is available with authorised Jio retailers or other leading mobile retail stores across India. As you might recall, the amount is being called a security deposit since Reliance is promising to refund buyers after they return the phone in 3 years time, effectively rendering the cost of the handset at Rs 0. It seems Jio now wants users to buy their popular feature phone without having to step out of their house and go to a Jio Store.

Yes, for both, offline and online purchases, the security deposit of Rs. 1500/- is refundable after 36 months. The first plan of Jio for the JioPhone is the Plan 49. Under this plan, customers will receive 1GB data per day, unlimited voice calls and free SMSes.

Amazon India is the second non-Jio platform to offer the smart feature phone. Amazon users can shop with their Pay balance and get Rs 50 cashback. It is advisable to check the seller before placing an order, as Reliance Jio itself is now officially selling the phone. Customers, meant to buy the gadget using Amazon Pay balance will also enjoy a cashback of Rs 50. It is valid if you pick one before February 28, 2018. The device comes with a 2.4-inch display and 4G VoLTE support. The phone is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core SPRD 9820A/QC8905 processor and it comes with 4GB of internal storage.
