Possible privacy problems

The big question here is what will happen to the data stored on the JioPhone after 36 months.

Hence, you should think twice before returning the phone because of the potential privacy issues.

The advantage of Reliance Jio is the transparent pricing strategy. A customer can select any plan according to the needs and requirements without any compulsion. That said, the three-month plan comprising of 1GB 4G data coupled with unlimited voice and messages is one of the popular choices among people. In addition to the standard pricing, customers are attracted with cashback offers from popular wallet companies such as PhonePe.
