Pre-Order The Light Phone


I'm sorry but we have unfortunately sold out of the Light Phone. You can leave us your email to be the first to hear about pre-orders opening.

Thank you for understanding.




Why am I having to put money down?

We have always taken pre-orders since our initial Kickstarter campaign ended in late June 2015. We're excited to be able to offer a $25 discount to new pre-orders as a way to say thank you for supporting our project.

We are sorry for any confusion this process might have caused. There is no additional payment after the pre-order, you are essentially buying the phone in advance.

When will I get my phone?

We expect to be shipping our phones by the end of February 2018. We will be emailing all of our existing pre-orders every other week with updates. There is always a risk in manufacturing hardware due to a variety of factors that something might get delayed. We will be prompt in our communications if there is a slip in the timeline.

How does the service work?

The Light Phone is a GSM mobile phone which requires an active SIM card to work. We’ve included a SIM inside the packaged phone and built a platform that allows the Light Phone to maintain your primary phone number.

We are able to provide this SIM/platform for $5/month or $25/6 months.

There is no obligation to use our SIM/platform however, you will need to find a suitable SIM (The Light Phone is a 2G GSM phone. T-Mobile or one of its MVNOs like Ting support the 2G network).


If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to us


Designed to be used as little as possible, the Light Phone is your phone away from phone. Whether it be an afternoon stroll, coffee break, night on the town, or a dinner date with someone you love, going light affords us the space we need to spend quality time free of distractions or notifications.


The packaging of the Light Phone.


The Light Phone only makes and receives phone calls. It uses your existing phone number and it is your second phone, a supplement to your smartphone for those times where you do not need the internet in your pocket. The Light Phone can store 9 speed dials accessed by a long press of the corresponding number on the keypad. It is intentionally limited to this feature set and is the only phone designed to be used as a second phone.
