What kind of SIM card does the FINNEY phone use?
The FINNEY phone supports a single Nano SIM card. This is the type of SIM most other modern smartphones use.
How frequently will the FINNEY software update?
Your phone will be among the first to receive the latest security updates and software fixes. We will provide platform updates and security updates.
How do I update the FINNEY software?
Your phone will automatically alert you when a new software update is available, within a few days of it being released.
To update your device's software:
Open the Settings menu Tap System Tap System update Tap Check for updates or Download and install pending updates
After download begins, you can minimize the Settings menu and use your phone normally. The download will continue in the background and you will be notified as soon as it is ready to install. You will be required to reboot the device in order to install the update and the battery will also need to be at a 30% level or higher (you may be required to charge your phone before proceeding with the installation).
How do I take a screenshot?
Simultaneously hold down the Volume Down and Power buttons. After about a second, you'll see the screen flash, indicating a screenshot has been captured.
How do I remove or switch my SIM card?
The SIM tray is located at the right upper side of the phone.
The tray is suitable for a SIM card and for an extension memory card.
Pop the SIM tray out by inserting the pin into the hole on the tray, then gently push it in towards the phone. Don’t force it, or you may break the pin. Take notice of the orientation of the tray—it’ll help you later when you put it back.
Remove the SIM card from the tray. If you’re switching to a different SIM card, align the card’s notch with the corner of the tray.
Reinsert the SIM by placing the SIM tray along the right edge of the slot. Align the hole on the tray with the hole in the phone, then push the SIM tray all the way through.
The SIM tray is fragile, do not use excessive force to slide completely into the device. Ensure the correct orientation.
Booting in Safe Mode – will it be enabled on FINNEY?
If you're experiencing issues with your device like overheating, random reboots or crashes, putting it in Safe Mode may help you figure out what's causing the problem.
Safe Mode disables (but doesn't delete) all the apps you installed that didn't come with the phone—also known as third-party apps. All the apps that come pre-installed on your phone—like Gmail, Chrome, Phone, and more—will not be affected.
How do I enter Safe Mode?
Press and hold the Power button until you see the option for Shutdown and Restart Tap and hold Shutdown until you see Reboot to safe mode Tap OK
When your phone restarts, it should display "Safe mode" on the bottom-left corner of your display.
If the problem you're experiencing stops while in Safe Mode, then a third-party app is most likely the cause. If you have a lot of apps on your phone, it may be tricky figuring out which one to delete—but it's likely the last one you installed before the problems started.
To exit Safe Mode, restart your phone as you usually would by pressing and holding the Power button, then tap Restart .

Are widgets the same as apps?
Not really. Although some widgets do seem to have stand-alone functions (such as the clock or alarm widget), they are always connected to a full app or to a system setting, letting you view updates or notifications from the app without actually having to open it fully.
The stock Android email widget, for example, can be set up to show either the most recent message or the titles of the last five messages.
This allows you to quickly see if you have important messages without having to open the email app. Think of widgets as interactive home screen shortcuts.

No. The FINNEY phone doesn’t support multi-user mode.
