Jio Phone booking: Documents needed, delivery date and all you need to know
New Delhi : The wait for Jio Phone will end on August 24 when the company will officially begin booking for the phone at both the online and offline stores.
Some reports claim that few offline retail stores have already started booking the device, giving people an opportunity to get Jio Phone ahead of millions waiting for the phone.
Gadget 360 found one such retailer and enquired about the documents, tentative delivery dates and other important details. The phone comes with a refundable deposit of Rs 1500 and this amount is payable only when you pick the device.
Booking Jio Phone via Aadhaar card
Jio Phone can be booked by simply submitting a copy of Aadhaar Card to an authorised Jio Retailer. Point to be noted here is that only one Jio Phone will be given on one Aadhaar Card.
Since Aadhaar Card number will be registered on centralised software while generating a token number, no second device will be available to single user.
The token number will be required when the user will get the device from the store.
