Interesting RCom Offers iPhone 5C/5S for Rs 2500/2800 on 2-Year Contract




Apple's newest iPhones, the 5S and 5C will be available on a 2-year contract basis with Reliance.
Reliance communications announced that the 16GB version of the phones will be available with EMIs and no down payment.
Yes that's right. No initial cost.

The 16GB variant will have no initial cost and will be available for an EMI of INR2,500 for the 5C and INR2,800 for the 5S over a period of 24 months. The 32GB however will cost INR10,000 and the 64GB will cost INR18,000 along with the monthly fee.

Here is what the iPhone 5S and 5C cost without any contract.
  • iPhone 5c (16 GB) Rs 41,900
  • iPhone 5c (32 GB) Rs 53,500
  • iPhone 5s (16 GB) Rs 53,500
  • iPhone 5s (32 GB) Rs 62,500
  • iPhone 5s (64 GB) Rs 71,500

You will be locked to Reliance network for 2-years. The offer will also have benefits from Reliance like unlimited voice calls, SMS (local and STD across network) and 3G data. There will be no national roaming charges.

Reliance has also tied up with the leading credit card issuers so that even if the user unlocks the device and starts using it with other carrier the monthly payment keeps crediting from the user's account. Only those with ICICI and HDFC bank credit cards can take advantage of the deal.

67200 for 2 years with 5s is a good price though .

2800 per month for the 5S is excellent actually. Comes down to about 570 per month in phone billing usage. Which is about my usage.

Re: RCom Offers iPhone 5C/5S for Rs 2500/2800 on 2-Year Contract

this is good progress wrt contact phones in India, esp. when they cost ridiculous amount of money to buy full price - is there any eligibility to be awarded a contract? for ex. good credit history or something? What happens if user does not pay his monthly commitments?

what happens when the users start using 3g as there broadband connection with hundreds of gb downloaded? what happens when these start selling on the grey market when people smuggle them out?

it seems like a half baked approach to me which would be very difficult to implement in india where murderers cant be caught...who is going to catch defaulters?

"Unlimited 3G" will most likely have FUP crossing which anyone planning to use it as broadband connection will throw it out the window

I can guess that since these are locked and if someone steals them, it wont get service on reliance anyomre, making it worthless as a phone.

maybe, but if activated on another no., IMEI can be traced - if mechanisms are in place to flag a reported stolen IMEI if activated on another service provider, it would be risky to use such devices

Re: RCom Offers iPhone 5C/5S for Rs 2500/2800 on 2-Year Contract

as per the above plan, does it mean taking the iphone on contract will result in fixed Rs.2599 / Rs.3,000 monthly bill - irrespective of how many minutes called on local / STD, how many SMS sent and 3G data usage (subject to FUP) - if this is the case, this plan is amazing for anyone whose monthly cell usage is high - especially the 0 downpayment 5S plan.
