India’s cheapest mobile smartphone ‘Freedom 251‘ was scheduled to be launched today (18 th February, 2016) at 6 a.m. IST. Surprisingly, the website is not opening before the clock stuck to 6 o’clock in the morning. The website shows only a white page, and nothing appears here in the freedom251.com home page.
Update: The website is opening now well. You can add the phone to your cart. But, the ‘Pay Now’ option does not working. The page only reloads when you press the payment option button. I think, the company removes the payment url due to overload of total number of orders. The ‘Book Now’ option has been removed from the home page. Wait for the next few hours so that you might be able to book it again, but chances are rare.
Update 2: The mobile company officially declares that due to overload of traffic (6lakhs per seconds), the server needs upgradation. So, the booking of the product is temporarily suspended (approximately for 24 hours) until further notice.
Ringing Bells Pvt. Ltd. is the company that launched the Freedom smartphone series only at INR. 251. The phone was inaugurated by Union Defence Minister Mr. Manohar Parikkar. But, as expected the website fails to open up at the time of schedule booking. However, the booking will be continued for the next few days (21 February, 2016). But, this is very ridiculous before the grand opening of booking of the cheapest Indian smartphone Freedom Two Fifty One.
The guys, who are thinking that the site is not opening due to slower internet connection or something else, they are informed that this might be the fault of the website’s server, and the server fails to handle the load of the Indian visitors who are waiting eagerly for the booking of FREEDOM251 smartphone. I try the website using 2 mbps broadband connection and with 4G connection as well. However, as a freedom maniac, I fail to open the website every time.
So, my suggestion is – just stop visiting the website that is “http://www.freedom251.com/” in such an early morning and go to your daily work as it was very much expected to me that the official website would fail to open at the crucial time of booking freedom phones. And I am still getting only a white page when I am trying to open the Freedom251.Com official website. Actually the web page is not opening.
