Design Specs

For the latest UX specifications, please visit


The Boot to Gecko first run experience will be a critical component to the overall user experience. The first run will introduce the user to the phone's software and user interface as well as set the user up with their Persona account, contacts, email, web apps and much more.

TU account

  • Users will be prompted to create or sign into a TU account (Note: TU is a Telefonica brand, the account will be operated by BlueVia)
  • Users may skip the account creation/sign-in, in which case they will be prompted to sign in later when using the Marketplace
  • The TU account will be used for carrier billing from the Marketplace

Types of mobile phone users

  • Brand new phone user: never owned a mobile phone before
  • New smartphone user: previously owned a feature phone
  • Existing smartphone user: previously owned a smartphone

User Contacts scenarios

Group A
  • Brand new phone user - no previous phone contacts
  • Brand new phone user - no phone contacts, but has contacts in a separate online service (email/social network/etc.)
Group B
  • New smartphone user - previous feature phone contacts on device
  • New smartphone user - previous feature phone contacts on SIM
  • New smartphone user - feature phone contacts (SIM/device) and online services with contacts
Group C
  • Existing smartphone user - previous smartphone contacts
  • Existing smartphone user - previous smartphone contacts + contacts in online services
Group D
  • Multi-device user - imports contacts info from device A to device B and wants them to be in 'sync'
