Since the launch thousands of people, 25 lakh to be precise if you go by Ringing Bells’ claim, have booked these phones at Rs 251 despite the website crashing through the two-day sale. Now the company has decided to stop taking orders.

How many handsets have been sold so far?
Ringing Bells’ response: 30,000 plus and these were on Day 1 reflecting the fact that our payment gateway could not support the transaction load. As per guidelines, the payments are deposited in the nodal account with the payment gateway, where the Company will claim payment only after submission of delivery proof.
We have 3.70 crore registrations on Day 1 + 2.47 crore on Day 2 as of 19:49 hrs.
