AT&T Resurrects the 'Cingular' Brand for Flip Phone
AT&T recently added the Cingular Flip to its lineup of inexpensive feature phones. The phone is made by TeleEpoch and bears the model number M3620, but AT&T named it the Cingular Flip to give it some visibility.
It seems they would have located that button somewhere less-likely to be an accidental press than that. Perhaps in the upper left-hand corner of the phone, with nothing else surrounding it, so that it would only be hit on purpose, as that would be the furthest button from your right-hand dialing finger.
Here's to hoping we don't have more hang-up calls to 911...
I think there's gonna be some accidental calls made to 911 made here. On the plus side, old folks are gonna be reassured 'cuz they're talkin' to the 911 operators so often, lol.
old people need love too.
