OwnFone is using Kickstarter to take the world’s simplest mobile phone across the globe. Based in London, OwnFone is the world’s first custom printed mobile phone that connects you instantly to the most important people in your life … and that’s it!  No screens, no distracting texts and no internet connection issues.  Just the simplest 2G, voice-only mobile phone ever created. OwnFone can be completely customized; you choose the materials it’s made from, the shape, buttons, texture and design. And since OwnFone is incredibly lightweight it’s perfect for kids, runners, the elderly or anyone else who needs an affordable phone they can take anywhere. Best of all, OwnFone’s battery lasts one full year on a single charge so it will always be ready for that unforeseen event.
