Freedom 251 was one of the world’s cheapest smartphone for which the bookings started at 06 AM today. Due to the increase of the traffic to the website, Freedom 251 website crashed.
The company had announced that customers can purchase the smartphone from its website starting 6 am on February 18 to 8 pm on Sunday, February 21, 2017.
Several people set the alarm and rose early to book the phones. Owing to the traffic, the freedom251 website crashed within minutes of opening the bookings. Only a few people were able to book the phone.
