Description
The telephone has a soft plastic case. A cable tie is threaded through two holes in the case and attached with a loop. The cable tie sits at an angle, so it is easy to insert the thumb to pick up the phone. The cable tie also serves as a stand when looking at something on the phone.

Users comments
Requires a soft plastic phone case, otherwise the case won’t stay in place.
