The company may per chance perhaps also provide the participant with a "survival kit" that involves a physical procedure to be outmoded moderately than apps corresponding to Google Maps, a physical phone e-book for jotting down phone numbers, a pen and notebook, and CDs with '90s-technology tune.

Frontier Bundles, a Utah-based Internet service provider, said it is "looking for one courageous soul to willingly give up their smartphone for a full seven days in favor of a flip phone".
