JioPhone, the highly anticipated 4G feature phone from Reliance Jio was made available for pre-booking on 24th August at 5:30 PM. Customers were able to pre-book the JioPhone through the official site and MyJio app as well as through offline channels. Since millions of JioPhone handsets were sold within initial hours, Reliance Jio has suspended its pre-bookings.
JioPhone Pre-Bookings Stopped
Reliance Jio has set an aim of selling 5 million (50 lakh) JioPhones every week. Reports claim that around 3 to 4 million users have already pre-ordered the JioPhone. However, the official numbers have not been declared yet. Since the JioPhone pre-bookings have been suspended, the official site is now showing a text that reads – “Millions have pre-booked the JioPhone. We will inform you when pre-booking resumes.” It is quite evident from this message that the JioPhone has received an overwhelming response. However, it has not confirmed on when it will be resuming the JioPhone pre-bookings.
The website is still allowing interested customers to register their details. However, one should be aware of the fact that it is not accepting any pre-bookings at the moment. Customers who register their details will be the first ones to be notified as soon as the JioPhone pre-bookings begin again.
