1stFone which is a part of OwnFone, has gone back to basics with it’s simplicity – with no text, Internet or other smartphone features. So no Twitter or Instagram notifications, lol!
But here’s the fun bit you get to design your phone for yourself or your loved ones. You have a choice to pick how many call buttons you want and the kind of buttons you want. For example if you’re designing a phone for your child you could pick the word buttons (Mum, Dad, Aunty, 999) or you can use image buttons/Braille buttons (see below). This is a brilliant phone for both your younger loved one, older loved one or even for yourself!
