Basic phones don’t get filtered – they get Koshered. Huh? What’s the difference? The difference is filters are removable, and are customizable. Koshered means permanent, and not customize able. In most cases Koshering involves a brand new operating system. As a result all information will be lost.
In general, there are 2 options in Basic Phone Koshering.
- Talk only. This means no camera, no music player no SD card.
- Talk and text – No email and no video playback yes camera and SD capabilities.
Email is ONLY available on a couple of flip phones.
