I am trying a startup to manufacture a very, very basic cell phone that does not have a screen on it and that simply receives calls and can dial 5-6 pre-programmed numbers.
The phone will have 5-6 personalised buttons on it with the pre-progammed numbers on it.
It would have to have an on/off button, charge indicator, led indicator for incoming outgoing calls, speaker phone for ringtones and also a headphone jack. A call and end call button would also be required.
I have been contacting manufacturers but there is such a huge minimum order quantity that it just isn't worthwhile for me.
After coming across arduino, I had a crazy idea, maybe it's possible to program arduino to run this?
I am quite techie myself, I know how to assemble computers and build websites - but I don't know programming.
I can learn - but I am conscious of my abilities. I am highly driven.
Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?
I did see a tutorial on arduino DIY cell phone, but that is more advanced then what I require.
