Designed to be used as little as possible, the Light Phone is your phone away from phone. Whether it be an afternoon stroll, coffee break, night on the town, or a dinner date with someone you love, going light affords us the space we need to spend quality time free of distractions or notifications.
The experience of going light is the Light Phone. Unplugging becomes special.
How It Works
Out of the box, plug the Light Phone into your computer and follow the instructions to download our app. As the phone updates, you will create an account and set up your 9 speed dials. To go light, follow the instructions on the app to turn on call forwarding from your smartphone. All outbound calls made will use your existing phone number.
The App & SIM Card
The Light Phone is an unlocked 2G GSM phone that is ready to use out of the box and it comes with its own SIM. An active SIM is required because the phone does not rely on tethering (i.e Bluetooth) for connection, and it will work regardless of its proximity to your smartphone. The cost of using our service is approximately $5/month and it only works within United States—International users, please see our notes below. The Light Phone can also work without our Light SIM & App as an unlocked phone with a 2G Nano SIM of your choice.
Due to high demand, new orders are estimated to ship sometime in early Spring, before April 2017. Reserve a spot with a pre-order or sign up to be notified about our progress.
Unfortunately we cannot offer SIMs at this time for international orders and the Light Phone will ship as an unlocked 2G GSM phone. You will still be able to use our app to update your Light Phone and manage speed dials, however, you will need to purchase your own Nano SIM from a local carrier. The cloud software platform that we offer in the US will not be available for international users and the most notable feature lost will be masking outgoing calls with your primary number. We will be spending the next year on-boarding users on a country-to-country basis.
The following regions do not support 2G: Australia, Singapore, Japan & Korea.
We are working on a future version of the phone for these regions.
