Jio Introduces Rs 99 Recharge Plan for JioPhone Users With 500MB Data Per Day for 28 Days

Reliance Jio is all set to begin its JioPhone Monsoon Hungama offer later today. The company has now introduced a new tariff plan of Rs 99 for JioPhone users, offering 0.5GB 4G data benefit per day, unlimited voice calls and 300 SMS for a period of 28 days. This new tariff plan joins the already existing Rs 49 and Rs 153 JioPhone tariff plans. Furthermore, the company has launched a new Special JioPhone Recharge Plan under the Monsoon Hungama scheme. The special recharge plan worth Rs 594 can be chosen at the time of exchanging the feature phone and according to Jio, it offers unlimited voice calls and data. However, Jio did not mention any daily data restriction in the statement it issued today. Nevertheless, Jio says that the total data benefit with this plan is 90GB, meaning it’s giving the newly launched Rs 99 JioPhone plan for six months up front.


Furthermore, JioPhone users under the Monsoon Hungama exchange offer will also receive a special exchange data bonus of 6GB data voucher, which is worth Rs 101. Having said that, customers exchanging their existing feature phone under the Monsoon Hungama offer can get the JioPhone for Rs 501 and unlimited free services for six months at Rs 594. On the whole, users will get a 4G feature phone along with six months of free services at Rs 1095.

JioPhone Monsoon Hungama Offer Terms and Conditions

The Mukesh Ambani-led company also revealed the terms and conditions of the JioPhone Monsoon Hungama offer. As part of the offer, a user can get JioPhone at Rs 501 by exchanging their existing feature phone. Jio confirmed that the Rs 501 would be refunded at the end of three years. The offer kickstarts from 5:01 PM today, and it can be availed instantly at the retail point stores or Reliance Digital stores.

Few more things worth noting are customers will get a new Jio 4G SIM card with the JioPhone, and for users who want to retain their old mobile number, they can do the same by opting for Mobile Number Portability (MNP) service.


As mentioned, a user must submit the old feature phone which should be in working condition without any damage/missing parts. Jio also stated that it would accept only mobiles that were sold in the last 3.5 years (January 1, 2015, onwards) are eligible for exchange. JioPhone or any CDMA or operator locked devices will not be accepted for exchange as the company will accept only 2G, 3G, 4G (non-VoLTE) mobile phones. Thankfully, Jio only requires battery and charger for a successful exchange.

You are proving that You are not Neutral. Does Ambani pay you to hide the Truth???? Shameless Greedy People. India has become So Corrupt!!!!

Is this phone similar to a CDMA phone?
I am asking that if this phone is sim locked or carrier locked?
Can we use other 4G sim in it or need to use only jio sim in this phone?
Anyone knows anything about this?

Guys, can we get JioPhone with MNP I. E. Keeping your old number or is it compulsory to get a new number?

July 21, 2018 9:56 pm 9:56 PM

@Kaushik IMA, here in Bangalore you can exchange only Nokia and Samsung handsets with no age bar…!! MNP is mandatory with jio phone… Recently I exchanged my Nokia 3220 and ported old Airtel number to jio along with 501 Rs… First month free and from next month I would pay 49RS…!! Here in Bangalore they are not accepting China phones…!!!

@ Siddu,

Here they are asking to pay Rs. 501 + Rs. 594 (6months*99) along with old phone.

July 23, 2018 12:36 pm 12:36 PM

@ kaushik,

I have taken jio phone at rs1500, without paying recharge cost, and not even made MNP.

Trick used was

I have generted UPC from Rcom in Oct 2017 ( Airtel in jan 2018), which was valid for more than 90 days.

Within 10 days ported same num to other number and used same code again to JIOPhone by paying rs1500 only.

@siddu, how can you get First month free. FRC of 49/99/153 in necessary??

Ok….as per Reliance Jio galleries in Navi Mumbai,yes you can port your old number. But I don’t know about plans you will take from Monsoon Hungama offer. Executives are not sure yet. If you buy phone outright then 49 plan is available for the time being. About exchange executives are not sure yet.

Kaushik, Only two possibilities with this offer.

1. Get a new SIM (mandatory) along with this phone and will be locked to this phone.

2. MNP your existing number first to jio and then avail this jio phone offer. You cannot directly avail this phone offer via MNP.

So, either way, they don’t want existing Jio numbers to be used on this Jio phone and they want to increase their number count.

Sakat, Brother, you keep on ranting here without knowing the complete terms.

Glad you assisted some of your known members.

Point 1 : what you said is right exactly when you are opting for an effectively zero offer with a security deposit of 1500.

Here i suppose, Kaushik asked about Monsoon hungama offer and for that offer the terms and conditions differ which is point 2.

So, please…..

July 23, 2018 12:32 pm 12:32 PM

Miss neha,

You are absolutely correct. “So, either way, they don’t want existing Jio numbers to be used on this Jio phone and they want to increase their number count.”

But Hidden condition exist from day 1.

and may be Mr kuashik is not aware and thinking that with Mansoon offer.

July 23, 2018 12:32 pm 12:32 PM

day 1 means Aug -sep 2017

July 21, 2018 1:07 pm 1:07 PM

@kaushik JIO website says you can.
