Consideration for children,
the elderly and people with disabilities

Measures to support
the elderly

The “Kantan Smartphone 2,” launched in 2020, is a product under our brand name whose specifications are set by us and whose manufacturing is outsourced to terminal equipment manufacturers. The features of this handset have been developed to support users who are hesitant to switch from existing cell phones to smartphones due to the digital divide and to protect the elderly from criminal activities.

Service Overview
Push-to-support In the event that you are unsure of the operation of the device while using, just press the support button and the device will understand the situation and solve the problem on its own. It also connects to a free dedicated consultation service.
Anti-nuisance phone function If you receive an unwanted call such as an oreore scam, bank transfer scam, or persistent sales call, the system will warn you that the call is dangerous. In addition, if you receive a call, the system will automatically record the voice of the caller as well as the warning guidance to you.
