Reliance Jio 4G Feature Phone Will Be Available for Purchase on Mobikwik Application

Digital payments application, Mobikwik has been awarded the rights to sell the Reliance Jio’s 4G Feature Phone in the country. Going forward customers can purchase the Reliance JioPhone from Mobikwik application for the same price. To be the noted, Mobikwik becomes the first platform to sell the JioPhone officially. All these days, the Mukesh Ambani’s telco sold the JioPhone on its portal and MyJio application itself.


Speaking on the association, Bikram Bir Singh, Business Head at MobiKwik said, “We are proud to become the first mobile wallet to sell Jio phones in India. Users can book their phone in four easy steps and avail great benefits as well.”

Post the purchase of JioPhone on Mobikwik application, customers will receive an SMS from Jio with transaction details and store details from where the JioPhone can be collected. Also, do make a note that the store person will ask for the identity verification. This method is quite similar to what we have seen during the first phase of JioPhone booking. In the past, we have seen several unofficial sellers listing the JioPhone on Amazon India website.

All these days, Jio tried selling the feature phone in its portal itself, but now, the company is exploring options to sell more units in order to grab more market share. However, the association with Mobikwik came as a surprise as it’s digital payment service, unlike Paytm which has its own e-commerce platform.

As of this writing, Mobikwik is yet to list the JioPhone on its application. Maybe they will start selling it by the end of today.

The Reliance JioPhone is one side of Jio’ success in the Indian market. In just over three months, the company managed to sell over 15 million JioPhones. Courtesy of Reliance JioPhone, Jio’s parent company Reliance Retail also became the leading feature phone company in the Indian market.

And now, Reliance Jio is aggressively pushing the JioPhone. The company has set up stalls everywhere on the roads in major cities such as Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Mumbai, etc. And it even introduced an affordable Rs 49 tariff plan which gives benefits of 1GB data and unlimited voice calling without limit for a month.

I don’t know why people looking in the way as it will work like 10-15k phone.
1st thing it for people who use basic phone 1k to 2k . It’s really good in that segment we are not target people.
Second thing it’s recharge is perfect for a person who spent 49 RS around in month.
I think with this every indian will be digitalis ed to some extent.

Salute to Mukesh Ambani . Haters hona hate jio . But you cannot reject that he is person behind digital growth in India.

There are lot of complaint in Jio official Facebook about the speed and coverage issue..

Ambani invested a lot but no customer satisfaction.

Why can’t they innovate some wireless equipments which can improve low signal at customer premises..? Let customer to bear the cost and power charges if they need good speed..

They also need more powerful bts equipments in most of the areas…

Boi..its congestion/ commercial feasibility/ area for new site/obstacles in between determine quality of each user and jio. Why don’t those users port out to the best network in their area. Everyone cant give best in all places… Btw small RF equipment exist but it needs Indian government approval on technical grounds of it and its origin. Bcz of RF stuff is important aspect that need to be checked for interference. And its very costly by the way. It will be 6k-20k even as highest volume licencing.
