If you want to know about the payment method for booking of freedom 251 mobile : There was NO “Cash on Delivery” option in first phase of booing of freedom 251 mobile. The actual information of payment was to be delivered to email (same email which was used for booking of freedom 251 mobile).
The website freedom251.co.in is very new. There was no option for online payment through Net banking or Credit card or debit card (ATM card). As per some user, what actually they want was, you should pay to some bank account through NEFT transfers, the account number was to be provided by email. Any one can pay to the given account number from any bank by just going to any bank near you and pay in cash for that account number. For this method of payment there is no requirement of Net-banking account, credit card, debit card ( ATM card). Even bank account is not required for customer who want to by freedom 251 phone.
So may people was required to deposit the Rs 251 amount in advance. It is possible that, they want to collect Rs 251 from lakhs of people and they go away with the money. So it is always better to not pay in advance (now) to get the mobile after 4 month. Rs 251 is small amount but it should not go to scammer.
If they are genuine, mobile will always be available at same price when it will come, you should pay only after knowing it better.
