    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.

    I have a jio phone 1 . I like the os specifically the look and feel. But the important apps like WhatsApp is in complete and the jio phone lags very much .its like a headek and such times it restarts automatically. Require more smoothness in this phone and more apps compatibility..

    Well, I was hoping that Kaios can launch a phone in Asia that work not only in Indonesia. I am living in Thailand and the only phone compatible to use here is the nokia banana phone, which I find the price to be comparable with many of the well known smart phones here. I am looking forward to more of ur product!!
    Ps. this is just mine and a few friends preferences, we absolutely love the flip phones.

    • Kai Helps

      Hi Lucy, we appreciate your sincere opinion on what devices should be available in Thailand! We are doing our utmost to provide KaiOS-powered devices to a wider audience possible. Much of that is managed by the device manufacturers (OEMs) so we recommend reaching out to a device manufacturer you had in mind and check for their release plans.
