    I have got Jio Phone 2 in my hands today and excited to start use. Unfortunately when I start JioTV I always see that Network unavailable message which made my annoying. For the Jio Phone 2 I had used 2 Jio sims which is working fine in Android platform which is working fine it. I had purchased the Jio Phone 2 in a great expectation that it can be used by my parents for which I can prepare the phone and provide it to them, but most of the apps are not working which shocked me.
    Can the development team please look into this at the earliest as the Jio Phone 2 is currently on sale in a flash sale. I am ready to support your development team with the necessary screenshot as required.

  14. Definition of CONSENSUS1 a : general agreement : unanimity1 b : the judgment arrived at by most of those concerned2 . : group solidarity in sentiment and beliefMerriam-WebsterYou are right the only historical consensus has been when a religious group has had sufficient power to impose it.Which rock? Obviously not the one in front of the tomb, no consensus there either.

  15. Abc, how true, how true. It is without doubt something which has been done behind the scenes, there will be no new management of most centres although many will walk away, according to sources. Now how naive admin is if he thinks those centres have not been dealing with the councillors behind the scenes to agree a way forward that satisfies the centres and the council, which although defies the public posturing it ensures no side has lost face in the stand off. How some are naive !!!

  17. In these days of austerity and relative stress about having debt, many individuals balk contrary to the idea of employing a credit card in order to make purchase of merchandise as well as pay for a trip, preferring, instead only to rely on the tried along with trusted procedure for making repayment – cash. However, in case you have the cash there to make the purchase in whole, then, paradoxically, this is the best time for you to use the credit cards for several good reasons.
