As part of a global campaign, Vodafone Sweden is now launching a new concept for the mobile market, Vodafone Simply. The new mobile service has been designed for customers who only want an easy to use mobile phone with voice and text services.
Following extensive customer research and feed back from thousands of customers, the Vodafone Simply service offer two exclusive handsets with easy access services in one or two touches of the button on the handsets. Vodafone Simply will be launched on the 1 of June in Sweden.
Vodafone worked closely with its customers in developing the Vodafone Simply phones. Customers were asked how they wanted their ideal handset to look, what services it should offer, how these services should be accessed and how the phone menus should be constructed.
Following this feedback, Vodafone linked up with Sagem to develop two phones: the Vodafone Simply Sagem VS1, a silver, curvy handset and the Vodafone Simply Sagem VS2, a straight, black handset.
Both phones have large, legible screens, as well as dedicated buttons for direct access to the most commonly used services: the Main Screen, Contacts and Messages. A button on the side of each phone controls ringer volume and a switch locks the key pad function to prevent accidental calls.
In addition, on-screen information, for example battery and coverage level - is designed to help customers master the phone as quickly and easily as possible.
Both phones offer a voice mail service designed to work like a standard home answering machine. The Messages button on the handsets lights up to notify the customer when a call or text has been received. To listen to or read the message, the customer just needs to press the Messages button.
In addition, Vodafone Simply offers a Missed Call Notification service. If a call is missed because the phone has been turned off, the customer will receive a notification via SMS with information about the caller's phone number.
