Reliance JioPhone, the feature phone which is making waves in the Indian market is now reportedly said to be shipping to the pre-booked customers. For the unaware, the Reliance JioPhone was announced at the Reliance Industries AGM meeting in July 2017 with an effective price of Rs. 1,500.
A PTI report cites that the delivery of Reliance JioPhone will begin from rural areas and small towns before it reaches urban areas. “The Chairman (Mukesh Ambani) had said that the JioPhone will bridge the digital divide between rural and urban India. Therefore, delivery of Reliance JioPhone will start this Sunday in rural areas and small towns,” highlights the report. PTI sourced this information from a retail channel partner.
In addition, the channel partner also revealed to the publication that the deliveries of the first six million Reliance JioPhone will be completed in 10-15 days. “The delivery of the first lot of 6 million will be completed in 10-15 days,” revealed the report. However, the report didn’t reveal when the company will start the second round of pre-booking for the Reliance JioPhone. However, Reliance Jio is yet to respond to this report, but the Mukesh Ambani-led company earlier this month confirmed that the deliveries of Reliance JioPhone will begin during Navratri period.
You can track the order status of your Reliance JioPhone via both online and offline channels. Reliance Jio is making it easy for users by adding the delivery tracking option online. To check the status of your Reliance JioPhone online, you should download the MyJio application from Google Play Store or Apple App store.
After downloading the application, login with the same Jio number which you used to book the Reliance JioPhone. After logging in, you can find an option called ‘Track order,’ where you need to enter the details which you gave while pre-booking the Reliance JioPhone. After entering correct details, you can see the status of your Reliance JioPhone.
Another way of checking the order status is by dialling the Jio customer care number- 18008908900.

Finally, the Reliance JioPhone is said to be shipping to the first batch of pre-bookers. As said earlier, the Reliance JioPhone is effectively priced at Rs. 0, but as a security measure, Jio is collecting Rs. 1,500, which will be completely refundable after three years.
