Bookings for Freedom 251 will start from 18 February 2016 from 6 AM and will close on 21 February at 8 PM. You can book the phone from freedom 251 official website www.freedom251.com (which is not working now). By examining recent examples of flash sales, booking of freedom 251 can be very difficult due to very high demand. In my opinion, website will receive a very high volume of traffic due to lowest price of mobile. The phone specifications are very good as per the price; most of the phones are providing these features above price range of 3000 bucks. Internet pack rates are very high and mobile network penetration is very low in India. I hope phone will create a milestone in the mobile market and each person of country will connect with the technology.
I tried to book the phone on Freedom 251 website and succeed in the adding it to the cart, however, after filling the address the page did not get redirected to the payment page. After filling the form the page is not redirected to the payment page and I have to fill the form three times, but not able to move to the checkout page. The delivery time of the device is 4 months, which I felt suspicious, so I dropped the idea of booking the phone. The price of the device is 251 and delivery charge is 40 Rs.
