So, you are tired of all the fancy apps, and disturbances? All you need is a phone for emergency contacting.

DumbPhone OS comes with just that. A bare-bones open source OS, that just takes care of a phone's basic functionality, and nothing else. This also could be a good educational example introducing the coding of phone OSes.
