Jio Phone deliveries have commenced, with Reliance Jio confirming that all 6 million customers who pre-booked the handset will get the handset by Diwali. This will be good news for the consumers based in Tier-1, 2, and 3 cities as well as rural areas, since it means they won’t have to wait too long for the Jio Phone delivery date. Though Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani had earlier said the company aims to delivery 5 million units a week, it is unlikely to happen at least till the logistics processes are cemented. On the other hand, if you were unable to book Jio Phone in August, you might just have to wait a little longer. Here’s what you need to know about the Jio Phone booking process, delivery dates, price, and more.
How to book Jio Phone?
To book Jio Phone you have three options – the Jio.com website, the MyJio app, and authorised offline Jio retailers. All you need to do make the Jio Phone booking is to give your phone number and the pincode delivery address, and pay a sum of Rs. 500. Once the booking has been made, you will receive a voucher number that you can refer to while picking up the handset. When the Jio Phone you booked is up for delivery, you will receive an SMS mentioning the store from which it can be picked up. Even the units booked online will have to be picked up offline. For now, the bookings are closed.
Can I book the Jio Phone for a friend?
Yes, you can book multiple Jio Phone units, for your friends and family. All you need is their respective phone numbers and delivery pincodes. You will have to make a Rs. 500 payment for each unit you pre-order at the time of booking itself.

How to check Jio Phone booking status?
To check Jio Phone booking status, you have two options – the MyJio app, and an IVR number. If you want to check Jio Phone booking status online, open MyJio app and tap on the Manage Booking option. After providing your registered phone number and OTP, you will see the My Vouchers page on the screen. At the moment the Status field just says Created, but as the Jio Phone delivery date for your unit draws near, it should show the date and details of the store from which the phone can be picked up. Alternatively, you can call 18008908900 via the number from which you booked the handset. This is an IVR number, and you just need to follow the instructions.
When do I make the full payment?
The refundable security amount for Jio Phone is Rs. 1,500, of which Rs. 500 is, as mentioned above, paid at the time of booking. The remaining Rs. 1,000 has to be paid when you pick up the handset from the offline store.
How many units can I book?
On the MyJio app and Jio.com website, there seems to be no cap on how many units of the handset can be booked (we went up to 30 units). Multiple units can be booked against the same number and pincode as well, and you just need to make the Rs. 500 partial deposit per unit at the time of booking.
Can I transfer my booking to someone else?
After ordering the Jio 4G phone, if you decide against buying it, you can transfer the booking to someone else using the Transfer option in the MyJio app, under Manage Bookings. After entering your number and OTP, you will see an overview of your Jio Phone bookings, with information such as orders placed and number of units for each order. Now, tap on the Transfer button above the Jio Phone banner, and the screen will switch to a new interface with the option to reassign your booking to someone else. All you will have to do is to provide the new user’s phone number, the new delivery pincode, and number of units to be transferred (in case you booked more than one). The recipient will instantaneously receive a SMS from Jio mentioning their new booking.
