AnonD-94987, 21 Jul 2017To all networks! Has been free for nearly 10 months!Thanx mate :)
AnonD-368020, 21 Jul 2017Is it a feature phone or Android based smartphone. Coz feature phones like these can be bought... moreit is a smart-feature phone lol.. it runs on Kai OS .. and has some apps like jio cinema , Jio tv to watch tv shows and movies ..and has an app store ..
all those feature phones that you are talking about are mostly 2g or maybe some 3g feature phones ..
this is the cheapest 4g VOLTE phone at Rs 1500.. JIO network is 4g exclusive .. if you have a 2g/3g phone you will have to spend 350 Rs per month for unlimited calls ( to all networks ) on other operators .. if you have Jio phone you will only have to spend 150 Rs per month for unlimited calls and superior voice quality ..
IronHeart8, 21 Jul 2017Samsung, Oppo, Vivo, Moto and Xiaomi are leading here, which year are you talking about lol2017. And if it's branded, it's not even flagship. Notice how not even true flagships are released here like Xiaomi Mi Note 2, Xiaomi Mi Mix, Asus Zenfone AR, vivo Xplay6, ZTE nubia Z17 (which one of my friends bought in the filippines on his vacation and it was a beast with SD835 and 8GB RAM). If we do we get only mediocre flagships. Ever seen Vivo's Xplay series here in 3rd world india? Nah. Even former Xiaomi vice president Hugo Barra said they won't release real flagsihps (by the time, Mi Note 2, Mi Mix) and only released the Mi 5 since most indians can't afford the price and they'll just lose money by releasing it here. Same goes for apple. As you mentioned only those brands, notice how one fruit is missing?
AnonD-686269, 21 Jul 2017Jio has only 4g network across inda And it has more than 150 million subscribers Ambani plan... moreIs it a feature phone or Android based smartphone. Coz feature phones like these can be bought as low as 800 Rs
"will include 500MB 4GB data per day"
That B in 4G needs to go.
AnonD-234961, 21 Jul 2017Why do you need 4G for a feature phone ? It's stupid.Jio has only 4g network across inda
And it has more than 150 million subscribers
Ambani planned to reach every corner of india so they launched this phone for the who can't afford a 4g volte smartphone
Since it's almost free ambani decided every India n use it
It's for mass as India people don't mind to keep two-three phones in pocket, however I wish Jio should have announced multiple phones, people don't mind to pay little more for touch screen, better processor, camera, screen and RAM. Remember ultimately people going to get good experience with better specs. Having expressed my thoughts I have zero doubt on Mukesh Ambani's business model, I am sure high end models will introduce soon. Good Luck.
johnnkennedy, 21 Jul 2017Calls free means reliance to reliance, or reliance to other's network also???To all networks across india

pffft. i'd rather use my smartphone with legit advantages and pay for service. Well, it's for the masses here anyways. And the masses here are poor and either don't even own a smartphone or own a branded smartphone, just cheap rebranded china phones like micromax, xolo, lava, karbonn etc.
This seems... too good to be true? What's the catch? (Other than it being a small feature phone)
AnonD-234961, 21 Jul 2017Why do you need 4G for a feature phone ? It's stupid.It's based on KaiOS a fork of Mozilla's Firefox Os. It has ability to run apps, WiFi, NFC, and it can even be connected to a display to stream content.
Is this have whatsapp?
Will this phone come with Hotstop?
This feature helps us replace existing internet options...
AnonD-234961, 21 Jul 2017Why do you need 4G for a feature phone ? It's stupid.For providing free calls over LTE The sim only works on 4g while 2g and 3g does not work with it They basically launched the sim first with free calls and data and now launched a feature phone to go with it. The feature phone is mainly for providing the poor masses to internet services..
It would be cool if it was available world wide...
Free, but you have to pay money for it.
That is "effectively" free.
