Jio Feature Phone Booking are Stopped after 5 million phones being booked, Read Here

Reliance Jio has paused bookings of the Jio Phone, with a message on its website saying that "millions" have already pre-booked a unit. The Jio Phone bookings went live at 5:30 pm on Thursday amidst heavy demand, which the Jio website and apps struggled to cope with for the first couple of hours. Things eventually settled down, and many were able to pre-book a Jio Phone by paying Rs. 500.


Booking Paused for a while:

Now, however, Jio has paused the bookings, with no indication of when the phone will be up for pre-bookings again. "We will inform you when pre-booking [of Jio Phone] resumes," a message on the Reliance Jio website reads.


Jio Phone Features and Specifications:

  • The 4G VoLTE feature phone has a 2.4-inch display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the hood
  • Jio Feature Phone is also supported by 512MB of RAM.
  • The operating system keeping the handset running is KAI OS
  • The Jio Phone has 4GB of internal storage, with microSD support up to 128GB.
  • You get Wi-Fi support

  • 2000mAh battery  and NFC for digital payments.
  • Unique features of Jio Phone include support for 22 Indian languages, a voice assistant to control certain functions, and the option to mirror content playing on the phone to the TV using a proprietary cable.


  • The first Jio-branded phone will come preloaded with apps such as JioCinema, JioMusic, JioTV, and JioXpressNews, along with popular instant messaging and social networking apps.


Jio Phone Price:

  • The Jio Phone is technically free to buy, but you will have to make a Rs. 1,500 refundable security deposit "to avoid potential misuse".

  • The booking fee is Rs. 500, while the remaining Rs. 1,000 needs to be paid when the mobile is delivered.


Jio Phone Delivery Dates:

Delivery dates for JioPhone will depend upon how early you book the device, as Reliance Jio is following the first-come, first-serve rule.

The company had earlier said it aims to deliver 5 million units of the handset each week, but the demand expected to be high so there is no surety on when the deliveries would be made.
