JIO PHONE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
Can i book jio phone for a friend
Yes, you can book multiple JioPhone units, for your friends and family. All you need is their respective phone numbers and delivery pincodes. You will have to make a Rs. 500 payment for each unit you pre-order at the time of booking itself.
When do i make full payment ?
The refundable security amount for Jio Phone is Rs. 1,500, of which Rs. 500 is, as mentioned above, paid at the time of booking. The remaining Rs. 1,000 has to be paid when you pick up the handset from the offline store.
Will we get refunded if we by any chance lose the phone or cause some damage to it? Does it matter?
No. We will not get refunded in such cases. But it doesn’t matter. Do you want to use a feature phone for three long years? No, right? You’re getting a Smartphone like a feature phone at such an affordable price from a trusted company, just get one of these and enjoy what is being offered while you still can. I am sure I am going to get one of these as soon as I can to use it as a backup phone, and after three years if it’s still not dead, I would return it. At least, I would be using a phone for quite a long time for which I would be investing only Rs.1500. No worries, Right?
How many unit can i book ?
On the MyJio app and Jio.com website, there seems to be no cap on how many units of the handset can be booked (we went up to 30 units). Multiple units can be booked against the same number and pincode as well, and you just need to make the Rs. 500 partial deposit per unit at the time of booking.
When wil My jio phone unit be delivered ?

Which apps will work on jiophone?
Jio says apart from its own apps, users will get popular instant messaging and social networking apps on the handset. However, WhatsApp – inarguably the most popular messaging app in India – is not present on the KAI OS-based platform at the moment, though it may be added later on. We did catch a glimpse of Facebook on the phone at the launch event, along with PM Narendra Modi’s Mann Ki Baat app. With a VGA camera in front, you can expect video calling apps – JioVideoCall at least – to work on the handset too. Other Jio apps that will be preloaded on the phone are JioShare, JioGames, and a Web browser.

WHAT IS JIO TV- CABLE?
It is a feature of this phone using which we can enjoy Jio TV content on our reality television. For doing this, we just have to recharge an amount of RS.309 and get the hardware using which we can connect our phone to our TV’s with HDMI ports or A/V pins. However, we will be able to enjoy the content for a limited period only during a day as the data available on the 309 pack per day is only 1 GB per day.
Will the 500mb data per day be enough?
Yes because the phone uses a 2.4-inch QVGA display whose resolution is 320×240 and so it will consume very fewer data compared to Smartphones of today.
What are the key Jio Phone features and specifications?
Jio Phone has a 2.4-inch display with 320×240 pixel resolution, dual-core 1.2GHz Spreadtrum SPRD 9820A/QC9805 processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal with expansion support up to 128GB, 2-megapixel rear camera, VGA front camera, 2000mAh battery with talk time of 12 hours, NFC for digital payments (software support to be added later), Bluetooth 4.1, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, and USB 2.0 support.
For which section of people this phone has been made?
not for the Smartphone users because we are already using JIO services on our phones very quickly. The majority of our country’s population still uses feature phones. These phones have been specially made for that section of people so that they can get connected to the internet too and enjoy the 4G services that the company is providing now. However we Smartphone users can use this as a backup device as I have mentioned earlier.
