Microsoft has announced the Nokia 216 feature phone, which will launch in India on Oct. 24. The phone will likely be one of Microsoft's last feature phones before the deal to sell off that division of the company finally closes later in 2016.

The phone will be sold in black, grey, and blue colors and will be priced at Rs. 2495.

I have Lyf Flame 1 phone, I bought it to use it as hotspot with Relaince Jio, the phone sucks so much that you will loose interest in using it anymore, elderly people will throw this thing away as they need phones for calls.
PS : I also recently ported from Airtel to Idea and happy with this.
2.They don't got the sim
I'm using Airtel. And currently paying ₹849/month for all India unlimited calls. But I can get the very same plan from Jio for just ₹149(or something like that) plus 300MB data and 100SMS.
I don't care about data as I already have high speed broadband connection at home.
The only reason I'm still holding on to Airtel is because I've read that currently Jio has terrible network.
His old Samsung slide phone broke yesterday and I've replaced it with a Nokia 215 this very day, all for the amazing price of £11.24 new.
People still want and buy the feature phones.
