Last week, at its 41st Annual General Meeting (AGM), Reliance Jio launched the JioPhone 2. But, alongside launching the JioPhone 2, Jio also announced the JioPhone Monsoon Hungama Offer that lets you buy last year’s JioPhone for as low as ₹501. While there’s still some time for this offer to start, those who are interested in getting the JioPhone for ₹501 can now register their interest on Jio’s website.
The JioPhone that was launched last year is priced ₹1500. But, customers do get that amount back after a period of three years, provided they do recharges of a certain amount. If they do, they get their ₹1500 after three years, which makes the JioPhone effectively free.
As a part of the JioPhone Monsoon Hungama Offer, you can get the JioPhone by paying ₹501 instead of ₹1500. All you have to do is exchange your old feature phone. This offer starts next week from July 21, however, the registrations have already begun.
You can register your interest in getting the JioPhone for ₹501 by clicking here, filling out the form (shown above), and submitting the required details. Once you do that, you will see a message that reads “Thank you for registering interest”. And, when the offer starts on July 21, you will be able to get a JioPhone for ₹501 by heading over to a nearest Jio Store and exchanging your old feature phone.
JioPhone is a really good option for those who are still stuck with old feature phones and want to get on to the 4G network. The JioPhone is 4G VoLTE enabled and also comes with some smartphone-like features. Back in December last year, it got Google Assistant in Hindi and English languages. And a couple of days ago, JioPhone also got Google Maps. But that’s not it, Reliance Jio has announced that apps like WhatsApp, Facebook and YouTube will also be available for JioPhone from August 15.
