Introducing The Latest 'Catch' From Cingular: The Firefly Phone

In time for holidays, Cingular offers Cool, Fun Mobile Phone for
Tweens that Helps Keep Parents in Control of Calls

ATLANTA and CHICAGO, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Cingular Wireless and
Firefly Mobile, Inc. today announced the availability of the Firefly
phone, a pioneering mobile phone designed specifically for kids ages
12 and under. Cingular is the first national U.S. carrier to launch
this unique voice-only phone. Firefly Mobile also announced this week
that the Firefly phone was awarded the prestigious 2006 'Best of
Innovations' Award in the telephone category from the Consumer
Electronics Association (CES).

The Firefly phone was designed with just five keys instead of a
regular dial pad. Parents use a private PIN to program up to 22
outgoing numbers into the phone, including speed-dial keys for Mom and
Dad. Kids place calls by pressing the Mom or Dad key, or selecting a
name in the Phone Book and pressing "send." Caller ID lets your child
know who's calling. An optional call screening feature can be
activated, allowing the phone to accept incoming calls from only those
numbers programmed into the phone.
