Today, so many people woke up on 6.am to buy this smartphone. But no one from these people success to buy this smartphone. People are going crazy for the cheapest and budget friendly smartphone. As per the reports the phone comes in the range on Rs 251 and Rs. 40 also will charge as shipping charges. On 18th February at 6:am booking started but as the sale started the company’s website crash. No one knows it was the technical issue or what? But the customers fails to book the smartphone because of this and some of them also tried the customer care numbers but they don’t get anyone.
Is it really scam?
Hmm, it seems like that it is a scam because in the picture you can see dialer button is matched to iPhone design and also rumors coming that this is the redesigned model of Adkom ikon 4 which costs near around Rs. 4000/- and some says that this is the remodify smartphone of Chinese phones.
Noida-based Smartphone company the Ringing Bell designed this Rs. 251 smartphone and named it Freedom 251 Handset. After the technical issue they also Claimed that their official website is not working properly. Before starting the sale the website crashed and they said it was because of heavy load. The company also said that they are trying their best to solve the issue.
For you more information I want to tell you that in the morning when interested customers tried to book Freedom 251 then the website asks them to fill necessary information. So they fill the details, but the main part comes here as they clicked on ‘Pay Now’ option, the webpage refresh. Means when ever you will click on the Pay Now button nothing will be happen but the page will be refreshed. Users clicked on the Pay Now button but the click don’t make the order as it takes them to the homepage back. :/
Ringing Bells’s official Twitter handle said, “To All

After this tweet the users only can wait for the problem solving message and after that they can buy the smartphone but this is not sure that you will success the next time too :p
