    What our Testers Liked
    **This is a home test review posted on behalf of the family who took part.
    We ordered the phone on line, it arrived promptly, packaged very well.
    What our Testers Disliked
    My only concern is that there is no “screen lock” feature and I hope this is not a problem.

    What is Interesting
    As the phone is ‘custom made’ on your specification, the set up was done online , while ordering it.
    The process was very simple and straightforward, with step-by-step instructions, images and colour coded steps.
    We went for ‘4 names’ design, but we liked the one with 4 pictures too.
    What our Testers Said
    The phone is great, it’s lightweight, very easy to use.
    The ringtone is quite loud and I’m not quite sure how to change it, however, the ringtone being loud means that my husband can hear it no problem, sometimes even when he’s in the garden.
    There is an on- off button that lights up which is quite good, so you know if the phone is on or off.
