A starter phone for kids with lots to offer


OwnFone is the world's simplest starter phone but that's not all! OwnFone has many innovative features that make it a great first phone for your child.


No Text or Internet

Ensure your child is safe from cyber bullying on their mobile phone. OwnFone only allows good old fashioned voice calls. Young kids should have a phone, but they definitely shouldn't have a smart phone

Made for you

It's easy to design your OwnFone on this website, and once you're happy with your phone design, we'll build it for you within one week.

Easy to use

It's ready-to-use straight out of the box. There's no complicated set up or constant need for software updates.

You make phone calls by pressing a name button. You answer calls by pressing any button on the phone - so easy!

The long battery life of approximately 5 days means the OwnFone is more likely to be charged and ready to use when your child needs it most.
