Kicking off 2013 with one of Pantech’s most impressive Android smartphones to date, AT&T;* announces the Pantech Discover™, available for $49.99** with a two-year agreement, in all AT&T; channels beginning Jan. 11. Pantech Discover will be the first AT&T; smartphone pre-loaded with the AT&T; DriveMode® application, an app designed to help prevent texting while driving.
The Discover features AT&T; DriveMode®, an app that helps curb texting and driving. The app can be set-up to automatically send a customizable reply to incoming messages once a vehicle starts moving 25 mph. The auto-reply message is similar to an “out-of-office alert” and can reply to texts, emails and wireless callers letting your friends know that you are driving and unable to respond. The app will automatically send all calls directly to voicemail; however, the user has the option to create an “allow list” or it can also be turned off manually at any time if the user needs to make a call immediately.
