Mukesh Ambani’s JIO 4G feature phone will get lighter WhatsApp.


Will new feature of JIO 4G manage user for 3 Years?


Mukesh Ambani found a way to make a bridge between ultra-affordable phone JIO 4G and smartphones.

Ambani is reportedly in talks with the engineers of WhatsApp for a light-mode version of the popular messaging app for JioPhone, which will make its debut in September.

Why Is It Needed?

The JIO’s main point is of selling with an attractive price and with an affordable monthly plan of Rs. 153/-. But according to JP Morgan report says, it is not enough to keep user tied for 3 years.

The users will get bored with jio 4G phone, all they can do is only calls and some basic internet browsing. JIO want’s a differentiator for their JIO 4G phone so they used WhatsApp in JIO 4G phone.

It will have the first time when feature phones will incorporate the messaging service if the rumored WhatsApp version comes to JioPhone that has earlier exclusive to smartphone users.

With more than 200 million active daily users in India and more than a billion worldwide, WhatsApp could give Ambani’s JioPhone the heft it needs, especially when its competitors are already working on affordable Android-based smart feature phones – Idea’s Rs 2,500 and Intex’s Turbo+ 4G – that can support Facebook and WhatsApp.

Why only WhatsApp?

WhatsApp has become the best messaging app in India today. Even the most basic smartphone user knows enough to be able to send and receive messages and other content via WhatsApp. Mr. Ambani will keep having to turn new tricks a regular interval in order to keep people invested in Jio Phone for 3 long years.

Whether it will happen or not will have to see. The roads ahead for JIO feature phone will be difficult we can’t except the bed of roses for JIO phone.

Reliance JIO Messaging app: JIO Chat

JioChat, Reliance Jio own messaging service app that can have accessed by its 125 million customers. Currently over 200 million Indians and by bringing the service to JioPhone and it can add another 500 million feature phone users that have left out of the digital revolution.

The company has attracted several customers through its attractive it’s interesting data and call packs with the Jio debut in the Indian market in 2016.

WhatsApp also received a UPI license that allows it to start digital payments. Therefore, to entry level users, the feature phones can introduce the payment system.

Data usage per subscriber has risen over 20 fold in the past five years particularly after the roll out of available services by Reliance Jio.

Wrapping Up:

Now the question is will you make 3 years lock in period for JIO 4G phone? I know many of us will say “NO” as a lot of us have a habit of using smartphones but there are people who cannot afford smartphone for them it is a good choice to get the smartphone feature in JIO 4G.

Jio Prime against Airtel’s Rs 345 and Vodafone’s Rs 346 Plans:

Airtel and Vodafone launched two aggressive plans to match against Jio Prime. Airtel’s Rs 345 plan offers 28GB of high-speed data for 28 days. The FUP is set at 1GB but the users will be able to use only 500MB of data during the day, while the remaining 500MB can be used between 12 am to 6 am. For no limits on timings, users can go for Rs 549 recharge. Also, calls beyond the 1,200 bundled minutes will be charged at 30 paise per minute. This pack is available only for prepaid users.

Vodafone offers Rs 346 pack under which user gets 28GB of mobile data and unlimited free calls. FUP is 1GB per day and once the limit is reached, the user will be charged.

For Prime members, Jio at Rs 303 offers unlimited free voice calls, SMSes, Jio apps subscription, unlimited data and 28GB 4G data with FUP of 1GB per day. The pack is available for both post-paid and pre-paid Prime users.

The interesting bit here is that the Jio plans are available to all users. However, the Airtel and Vodafone plans, along with those offered by others, are only available to select users. It’s like a lottery. Some users get them, most don’t.


With the launch of ‘Jio dynamic tariff plans’, Rivals will end up in losing a massive monthly revenue in few days. If Jio launches dynamic plans as per announcement, then 2017-2018 year will create a history in ‘Telecom Industry of India’.

Airtel monsoon offer? 

Airtel Monsoon offer to be extended 30 GB 4G Data for 3 Months More


Airtel has announced a new Monsoon offer for their customers. The company has extended their previous offer to new monsoon offer. Airtel has already informed their subscriber about the new monsoon offer. The first offer that is “Holiday Offer” was introduced in the month of April and it was getting ended in June, but the company decided to extend the offer with new wording as “Monsoon Offer”.  Now it will continue for more 3 Months from July.

Under this Monsoon Surprise offer, Airtel is offering 10 GB 4G Data every month to their postpaid subscriber. You can avail this offer after 1 July 2017 and you can only avail this offer from My Airtel app.

The Move taken by Airtel can be seen comparing to other telecom companies also. Recently Vodafone has launched a new offer, where users will get 10GB data on cost of 1 GB data and BSNL launched “444” where users will get 4GB data for 90 days at very low price at 5 Rs per day.

How to Avail Airtel Monsoon Offer?

1) Go to My Airtel App on your Smartphone.

2) The application will show a message asking users to claim their surprise offer.

After clicking on the claim message that the app shows, you now need to tap on the message. Once you tap on the message notification, the application will take you to the page where you will be able to claim the surprise offer. After which you will automatically receive a message that each month you will get free 10GB of 4G data per month.

Airtel is trying hard to counter  Reliance Jio’s latest offer named as Jio Prime through which a user will get free unlimited calls, SMS and 1GB internet per day for Rs 303 per month.

This offer by Airtel seems to be a move to take on Reliance Jio, which has reportedly been testing Jio Fibre, a Fibernet broadband service in some major cities.
