Making calls and sending text messages to your loved ones just got a whole lot easier with voice commands. The MiniVision2+ is an unlocked 4G phone.

MiniVision2+ will speak everything on the screen and everything you press, providing complete independence and accessibility. It will also speak items like caller ID and battery level. Multiple languages and voices are available to choose from, making your phone even more personal to you.

The OK button is a textured to make it easy to identify; and the five key, power button, and call button each have prominent bumps.

SOS button

A dedicated SOS button on the back of the phone triggers a call to emergency contacts, meaning help is never far from reach should you need it!
