This phone will have no display, no keyboard, no SMS facility. It will be able to receive calls and will be able optionally dial out only ONE fixed, preprogrammed number.

This phone will be a small box, perhaps half the normal size cellphone, will have only a battery, and two buttons, one for receiving and one dialing out a fixed number.

I'm sure there will be situation where such phones will be useful. These phones, IMO will be almost disposable.

These are land-line based, but I'm sure a cellphone variant could be made too. [Wrongfellow, Mar 11 2011]

       So, a two-way radio, then?

       Yes, but using a cellular network.   

       Certainly eminently Bakeable.   

       Only one button is required, to provide Accept/Drop, Dial, and On/Off. Slot for a SIM, and micro-USB for charging and programming the number.

       One button that dials numbers in the same way texting characters are selected would be useful. However that could require a screen.
