The three most popular apps YouTube, WhatsApp and Facebook will be available to all the JioPhone users from 15th August.
Jio was born with a purpose.
To transform India with the power of the Digital Revolution.
For this vision to be realised, every Indian must become a DIGITAL INDIAN.
However, as many as 500 million Indians still use feature phones, who cannot use the Internet.
The doors of Digital Life are closed to them because of the problem of affordability.
Which is why, last year we offered the JioPhone – India Ka Smartphone – for a fully refundable deposit of Rs 1500.
In other words, for an effective price of zero.
25 million Indians have availed this scheme and become JioPhone users.
This scheme will, of course, continue.
Today we are introducing another attractive offer to feature phone users.
It is the JIOPHONE "MONSOON HUNGAMA" offer.
Starting July 21st... they can exchange their existing feature phone for a brand new JIOPHONE for just Rs 501!
We have thus reduced the effective entry cost of the JioPhone from Rs 1500 to as low as Rs 501.
Starting 15th August, our JioPhone2 will be available at an introductory price of only Rs 2999.
Our purpose is to accelerate the Digital Revolution in India with the extreme affordability of a JioPhone, so that each
and every Indian can access the internet and enjoy the Digital Life.
Further details about both these offers will soon be made available on jio.com.
With the added functionalities, our wider network reach across India and strong retail presence across India, the goal
that I have now set for our Jio team is to enable 100 MILLION users on this JIOPHONE platform in the shortest
