After the announcement of Jio phone at Reliance Jio AGM, people are much in excitement and as well as have many queries regarding this phone. The handset, named JioPhone, will effectively cost zero as buyers will be able to get the device for a one-time refundable security deposit of 1,500 rupees. This phone will be made available from 15 August in a beta programme, so first it has to booked from my Jio app or Jio offline stores. Customers who pre-book the phone will be eligible to purchase it from September onwards, on a first come first serve basis.

There will be two plans which will be made available with the phone Rs 153 and Rs 309, both the plan will have 28 days validity it will include unlimited data, unlimited calling, and SMS. With the Rs. 309 plan, users will be able to use the Jio Phone-TV cable to mirror their phone screen onto any TV, so that Jio’s streaming services can be enjoyed by the whole family. The Rs. 153 plan come with 500MB daily FUP for the high-speed data.
