Jio Free Phone Registration Or Pre Booking
As I mentioned above that the phone is free of cost so, you do not have to pay the price directly. But indirectly, you have to give Rs 1,500 as security money. But that amount is completely refundable. One can take back all the given Rs 1,500 after 36 months or 3 years after the purchase date. This will prevent the abuse of the phone and make some interest out of the deposit for Jio as well. But as you will get all that money you give to them, the JioPhone becomes completely free of cost.
The pre-booking or online registration for Jio phone will start from 24th August. Before that, Jio is going to test and examine the phone via their beta testers.

The phone will be given only to them who will take part in the pre-booking or online registration.
