The official website of Ringing Bells Freedom251.com goes down due to the high load. As you know Ringing Bells Freedom 251 has created history by launching the world’s cheapest phone in the Indian market at the price tag of Rs. 251/ only, today at the time of booking, the site goes down due to heavy traffic.
We are trying to book a phone for ourselves from 5:30 AM and suddenly at 5:54 AM site went down. The error that continuously popping out was “Service Unavailable: Back-end server is at capacity”. Those who don’t aware of this error, it is basically an error when Sever is unable to handle the request due to high load or traffic.
Ringing Bells Freedom251.com goes down due to the high load
Those who have woke up early in the morning to buy Ringing Bells Freedom 251, unfortunately, cannot book it at the moment. The issue was not fixed while writing this post(6:07 AM).
It seems that Ringing Bells was not expecting this much of response from the Indian buyers. This is not the first case when we have seen the site is down to buy some different and unique thing and even when it is cheaper.
Freedom 251 has a 4-inch display and powered by 1.3 Ghz quad-core processor. It runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 and packed with 1GB RAM. It has 8GB internal memory and can be expanded up to 32GB via micro SDcard. This is again in a news that Micro SDcard is costly than the price of the phone. It has a 3.2 megapixel back camera and 0.3 megapixel front camera. It has 1450mAh battery.
Is it a Scam?
There are lots of rumors going about the Freedom 251 Smartphone that it is a Scam. The Indian Cellular Association has said the minimum price for 3G phone in India is Rs 2,700 and according to that it is an impossible case where you are getting the phone at the price tag of Rs 251/ only.
Update at 6:30 AM: Freedom251.com is still down and no update from their side at any channel.
Update at 8:05 AM: The site is accessible, however, payment link is not working. Company is responding all at Twitter channel, refer at:
