We are still in beta. We've run into a few limitations in our initial user experience goals due to some iOS restrictions. They are not going to effect the experience of being light, but will make turning on call forwarding a little bit more manual. We are experimenting with the various options with our beta users. We will be shipping the phones regardless as to not delay any longer and will continue to provide frequent software updates to early adopters.
The first large batch of Light Phones (white) will be shipping out of factory in Yantai, China onNovember 30th. It will be arriving to all our earliest supporters in December! We will continue to rollout batches of phones over the following weeks. The night (black) colorway of the phone will be shipping out of our factory the first or second week of January, we are in the process finalizing the exact date.
We understand that we have long since missed our timeline goal, and we appreciate your understanding. We've learned so much from the process and will continue to improve in all possible ways. We took on the ambitious task of building the software in house with a small team in order to maintain ultimate control over the experience, however we regret not having methods for projecting accurate timelines.
Much love,Light Phone Family
