Hi friends, i was thinking to buy Jio Phone , if someone is already using it please comment here if its worth purchasing at Rs.808 , as Jio has also informed that they are going to provide additional benefit of Rs.693 in form of Rs.99 * 7 recharge on top of the recharge we do (please explain this point too and how to maximize benefit of it)
i have an existing JioFi and i recharge it for 72days for 395 which gives me 1.5 GB of data / day , even 1 GB is fine for me, so should i stop my JioFi and switch to JioPhone toungueout

It’s not good for heavy use even if you’re using for calling it hangs a lot and after hang you have to restart it by removing battery.

Bro , whats your opinion if the use is limited to only making calls , sending SMS and using as hotspot , and how do they bother us with ads in these 2 cases….

use recharge cashback offers. example:- amazon/ paytm/freecharge gives 100% cashback offers. use those offers. and activate main plan with talktime balance.
