[BCAB] Fwd: flip phone with keys

Hi,

Also worth noting it is built by the same company that built the Alto, and that wasn't too clever either.

I think the best easily available phone now in that class is the Kapsys MiniVision.  But disclaimer: I do sell it.  I am just passing on an opinion though, and not as a sales person.

All the best

Steve

Hello,
The features sound wonderful. However, it uses 2G and the only phone company you can use, as far as I know, is Vodaphone. I'm not sure that any other provider will entertain 2G.

Very best wishes,
Sandra.
