The Easyfone Star is priced in India at Rs 3490. It is now available on the company’s website and leading e-commerce platforms (such as Flipkart and Amazon India).
Specifications and Features
- Restricts phone calls

- Dedicated SOS key
- Personalized keys
- Five color options
The Easyfone Star restricts phone calls (incoming & outgoing) to only pre-configured numbers. This allows children to connect with only known people. However, it has no internet browsing capability. Additionally, the feature phone comes with a GPS tracker which allows parents to track their child if required. There is also a dedicated SOS key for children.
For additional security, all important settings can only be configured via the company’s website. A service called ‘CareTouch’ allows parents to remotely change these settings on the site. The settings cannot be changed on the phone by anyone. Additional features include a ‘do not disturb’ time. Parents can also set up reminders/ schedules for study time, activities, birthdays, etc.
The Easyfone Star comes in five color options including blue, green, pink and red. The phone’s keypad can be personalized with pictures of contacts. This makes it easier for kids to call their family.
“We are extremely pleased to launch Easyfone Star – India’s first phone for kids. The Easyfone Star addresses the needs of parents who want a phone that helps their kids be safer & connected – but without the downsides that existing products offer. The Easyfone Star has been designed especially for children – essentially as a safety device, and we have filed patents for the same. We will soon be launching more such products for children as well as others who have unique needs that existing products do not address,” said Rahul Gupta, the CEO & Co-Founder, Easyfone.
