When you think of a flip phone, depending on your age, you may be reminded of phones used in the past that were clunky and pretty low-tech. The phones were primarily used by businessmen and women back when not many people even had portable phones. You may not even remember a time when using a flip phone was the norm and you may have just seen them in films and laying around in the toy box or junk drawer long since forgotten. Yet in 2023 there are flip phones still on the market and a growing number of people are looking to switch away from overly complicated touch screen smartphones to these feature phone devices.

The flip phones available on the market today may look like their counterparts from the past but they have some big differences, these phones, like the ezFlip 4G from Snapfōn®, are packed with the latest high-speed technologies and service options making them state-of-the-art and high-tech yet simple and easy to use. Unlike a smartphone, a Snapfōn® flip phone has real physical buttons that you can feel when pressed, this is perfect for individuals with visual impairments who need this ability to place a call.

The Snapfōn® ezFlip 4G also boasts many other features such as the ability to program numbers to be spoken out loud when pressed and callers’ phone numbers read aloud, this is a loved feature for hearing impaired customers. Plus, a clear high contrast screen that is very easy to see and read for those with visual impairments. Our flip phone has limited built-in applications that can add to the experience of this device such as; call history, messaging, camera, and browser.

Another great feature in the ezFlip 4G is the SOS button located on the back of the device. The SOS button is used during an emergency and can alert five preselected contacts through call and text, the phone will automatically switch to speakerphone mode for convenience. An optional siren will also play to notify those nearby. This is an optional feature and can be deactivated in the settings if desired. The phone also has an optional fall detection feature that can activate the SOS sequence if turned on in the settings.  Through Snapfōn® you can add on the sosPlus Mobile Monitoring Service which is an additional monthly plan added to your cellular service making your SOS button on your device act as a medical alert tool connecting the cellular user to a sosPlus agent available 24/7 in case of an emergency situation. Agents have access to your provided medical information and emergency contacts through your Snapfōn® User Account. Our sosPlus Agents can conference in emergency services, alert family and friends, and will stay on the line with you until your situation is fully resolved. 

The simplicity and ease of use are what our customers look for. Incorporating 4G LTE, VoLTE, WiFi, GPS, and touch-screen technologies into an easy-to-use device brings all of the advantages of the latest technologies available to our flip phone but with a flip phone, we bring the ease of use and simplicity back to the user. The ezFlip 4G is the perfect option for users who want an easy-to-use cell phone with safety options and fast high technologies backing it.
