The MP02 New Generation 4G voicephone

Looking for balance? Here it comes.

Designed with the 21st century in mind.

MP02 4G Mobile Phone

“If anyone wants to talk to me, they can give me a call. Other forms of communication, for example email or social media, are available when I choose to use them – and via a linked device that allows me to use them more effectively.”

Petter Neby signature

Petter Neby, founder of Punkt.

MP02 mobile phone

The Internet as a tool

When it’s time to get online, the MP02’s 4G LTE connection can be shared with a tablet/laptop – which means easier typing in comparison with a smartphone, and a bigger screen. This two-device approach means that the Internet is something you dip into, rather than the other way round.

MP02 mobile phone

Being here, being effective

Focus is at a premium in the digital age. The MP02 4G mobile phone makes it easier to be where you are, whether that’s a family weekend away or an important business meeting. It gives you freedom from a constant onslaught of designed-for-addiction notifications and other distractions. It puts you in charge.

MP02 mobile phone

Connection in the digital age

The Punkt. MP02 minimalist phone is built for connecting with people. It’s comfortable to hold and to use and features excellent audio quality and battery life: a voice phone that works as a phone, with up-to-the-minute styling and an interface that is elegant and efficient.

MP02 mobile phone

Low-key, stylish design

The instantly-recognisable MP02 is the work of renowned product designer Jasper Morrison. It is built around effective simplicity: press the phonebook button to make a call, press the text button to send a message. For everything else, there’s a fast, lean menu system: up, down, select, go.

MP02 Designed for security

Designed for security

The MP02’s minimalist operating system is hardened against attacks. Coupled with the fact that it is not designed around its owner entering sensitive personal information like bank details, private images, etc., this is a phone built for autonomy in the 21 st century.

MP02 Pigeon


The MP02 is the first voicephone to offer a downloadable privacy feature that uses the Signal protocol to provide free, encrypted Internet-based calls and texts worldwide via Wi Fi or mobile data (subject to data charges). We believe Signal provides vastly greater security compared to the widely-used encrypted alternatives, which exist primarily as tools for harvesting and selling valuable metadata (contacts lists, who communicated with whom, when it happened, etc.). In the Signal system, all metadata is encrypted.
By using the Signal-protocol, it is possible to add group messaging and voice messages to the MP02.

Signal is provided by a non-profit foundation. To find out how to support the work that they are doing, click here.

Bespoke tones

The MP02’s unique ringtones have their own pedigree: they are the work of respected Norwegian sound artist Kjetil Røst Nilsen.

Rare tactility

The MP02 4G mobile phones feel solid in the hand. It’s well-balanced and is designed for one-handed use. The body is reinforced with glass-fibre and its textured finish is both protective and unusual. It’s a phone for keeping, not replacing.

Solid construction
The housing of the MP02 is reinforced with glass-fibre and finished with a tough, abrasion-resistant coating. Splashproof to IP52 standard.

Minimalist interface

The display is monochrome+ (black and white). Unusually, the minimalist interface is 100% text-based – no icons whatsoever. Click through in seconds: up, down, select, go.

Pigeon is Signal-compatible

Pigeon is Signal-compatible

Pigeon is compatible with the Signal system which uses VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology to make phone calls and exchange text messages.

Note: Pigeon is an independent creation and has not been endorsed by The Signal Technology Foundation

Pigeon is private

Pigeon is private

Pigeon uses the Signal protocol, recognised as the de facto standard for encrypted messaging. Signal is operated by an independent non-profit foundation and its code is open-source and therefore subject to public scrutiny. Unlike other services, metadata is encrypted (caller/sender, recipient, time of call/message, etc.). Central records are limited to when a Signal account was first created and the date of when it was last used, nothing more: messages and metadata are not stored on central servers. Signal’s users include the UK’s Conservative Party, the EU’s European Commission, and the United States government.
