The Basics


Powering On

To turn on the Light Phone, long press the Power button for 3 seconds.
A pulsing animation will display letting you know that the phone is now booting. The phone will not turn on if the battery is too low, and will require you to charge it for a little before booting. 



Stand By / Wake Up

The phone is designed to mostly live in stand by mode. It is ready to receive calls, but the interface is invisible. To wake up the phone, short press the Power button. The interface will light up displaying the time and the keypad. The interface automatically shuts off after 5 seconds.


Locking the Phone

On the left side of the phone is a Lock switch. When locked, the switch is down and there is a visible grey color under the button. The keypad is disable while locked.


Battery / Information Screens

Use the Triangle key to bring up the battery level screen and
the X key to bring up the information screen which indicates the signal strength as well as which mode the Light Phone is currently in.


The Light Phone Modes

Cloud App On : The Light Phone calls through our cloud platform and uses our provided SIM card. Limited to US customers only currently.

Standalone :  The Light Phone calls out directly using the SIM you've inserted to the phone, like an unlocked standalone device.








Dialing a Phone Number
Begin to dial the phone number using the keypad. Once you've completed dialing the phone number, press Triangle to initiate the call. Pressing X will erase the last number entered.


Calling a Speed Dial
Long press on the corresponding # to bring up that speed dial's contact page. Triangle will initiate the call and X returns to the Home screen.







During a Call
After pressing Triangle to begin the call, the screen will display the details about where the call is headed. When the call connects you will see a timer start to display. After a few seconds the interface disappears so that you do not accidentally touch the keypad with our face. To bring up the interface, for example to end the call, short press the Power button.




Receiving a Call
When you notice an incoming call on your Light Phone, you will see the caller's information on the display as well as the option to answer with Triangle or reject with X.










The Light Phone has a built in Menu that you can access on the phone itself.




Each # represents a category inside the menu.
Pressing X jumps back to the MENU so you can go to a new category.


Categories of the MENU

1. Ringtone:  On or Off
2. Outgoing: A list of outgoing calls.
3. Incoming: A list of incoming calls.
4: Missed: A list of missed calls.
5: Clock: Standard, 24-Hour or No Time
6: Mode: Standalone or Concierge
7: Deep Sleep: On or Off  (conserves battery at night)
8: Update: For updating software.
9: Info: Additional information about the phone.


Navigating a Category

Once inside a category, use the 2 & 8 keys to scroll up & down through that categories options. TRIANGLE will save the setting change and return to the HOME screen. If you are scrolling through one of the call lists, TRIANGLE will place a call.

2 = Scroll UP

8 = Scroll Down





More Information


Battery Life

The Light Phone battery lasts about 2-4 days on standby depending on the quality of the signal strength. The more that you wake up the phone and the interface lights up, the quicker the battery will drain. We recommend charging the Light Phone prior to going light. The Light Phone battery will last 45-90 minutes while on a phone call, again, depending on the strength of the signal. Another reminder that the Light Phone is designed to be used as little as possible and not intended for long phone calls.
