    My view

    It is the start of a revolution – high end phones available on contract like in US

    Look at it from corporates’ / small businesses’ point of view – the on contract payouts become business expense (tax deductible) rather than an asset getting carried in books for longer time. This is another reason why I would call as start of a revolution

    If the claculations are done then 2,500*24=60,000.This is the amount which we will be paying rcom for the iphone 5C on contract whereas without contract the device is is available for 40,000.So we end up paying 60,000-40,000=20,000 to rcom for 2 years which mean approx 833rs per month.plus the offer is only available for credit card holders

      But dear, they are also offering unlimited Voice calls and Unlimited Texts throughout those 2 year contract, so in case you pays out a monthly billing of Rs. 1000 that would cost you 1000X24 = 24,000, so paying Rs. 20,000 as Interest would have a net profit of Rs. 4000/-.

    Waiting for airtel or vodafone to come up with such an offer.

    This is the ridiculous offer by reliance, because this is india not america and in india everyone knows the ability of indian operators and not a single operator is exception to this. The indian peoples are expecting 100 rs./1 Gb 3G data. So those who can buy this 50K iPhone will even deny this offer. I think this offer is for only corporate peoples. Others will only prefer contract less iPhone. This is my view.

    This will be the first time that Apple is partnering with an Indian telco officially, and since the models being launched support Indian LTE bands I wouldn’t be surprised if Reliance Jio were to partner with reliance communications to offer nation wide lte coverage on this phone. Though only 1 to 2% of the Elite cream of society will go for this offer, I would much rather call for a Nexus 5 from USA for 249$ and use it unlocked. Google is launching the phone in India with a price tag of 29k.

    Better buy unlocked phone on EMI. Since reliance offer is also like EMI with HDFC and ICICI credit card.
